Hello, it’s Jonathan Wilson., producer / musician from Fivestar Studios in LA I have a set of the SE  dots in the master section of my mci 416. I love them very much and have made some pretty influential records the last few years through these opamps. I’ve been doing some upgrades to the board...

“After extensive use of your opamps on my JH428 (master section, 2 channels, control room/studio monitor and cue/echo path), my feeling is that I just bought a class-a console with extended frequency response, a much “fuller” sound and more headroom. Tracking, mixing and monitoring now makes far more sense than before. Even upgrading the master...

Phillip, Just wanted to drop a line,  as tonight we did the first critical listening tests of the bova amps vs. the 5534s. We did this by switching between the ‘control room’ module and the ‘studio’ module in the board.  We patched directly in the 2trk input.  We were listening to Mackie 624s (the first...

I use the EQ and you can actually hear a 2db change at 10k. It’s clearly evident that Philip has improved the performance of these circuits without affecting that good ‘ole punchy MCI sound. This old MCI lives again and we’ll be doing a lot of mixing through it soon. Thanks for taking the time...

Wow, buy them. Don’t waste your time figuring out what else you could use. Use that time working to save up for them. Well worth the cost. as posted to analogconsole.com ‘MCI Consoles’ forum 7/20/09 by charlesaustin Austin Music Studios

In my initial tests, <with the sage RED and BLUE opamps> I ran the CD into 2 input faders, panned center and levels being equal with respect to the individual light meters and analog VUs as reference (probably not 100%> accurate, but that’s what I have). Switching back & forth I immediately notice the air/...

Post subject: MCI owners take note!!! This is awesome…. http://www.sageelectronics.com/images/SE-DOT_5A-5AB_opamp2.pdf One of my favorite companies on the planet just put up a new product on their website… A discrete replacement for the IC’s in MCI 4xx series consoles!!! I am hoping that this discrete opamp could be modified to live in other vintage consoles as...

In regards to the MCI 400 416 428 etc with the bova discrete opamps. I wanted to wait until it was available on his site to post this, and I will make a full post of its own soon. I did a sample for his web site. A pro tools file (available to download) shooting...

Although changing out all the capacitors in this console had improved the performance, the differences in an A/B test of The Best Of James Taylor CD using my new SAGE Red & Blue Dot opamps are quite dramatic. Jack Grochmal Stackatrack

Hi, I wanted to let you know the samples are done. I am more impressed with your product than I was before. Not only does it put the 2001 to shame, it clearly sounded better than both a UA-la610 and a vintec x73i. Both of which are pretty expensive pieces (although the ua does not...
