2018 was a tremendous year. It was the year of the VESTAX!! I got several opportunities which I took advantage of to Enhance QUITE a few Vestax pieces.
I also totally revamped my enhancement procedure to the KRK Rokit series speakers. In October I got the chance to shoot out a pair of Danieldialatone modded KRK Rokit 6’s against a pair of $5000.00 Adams. The KRK’s held their own, but with a noticeable advantage in overall detail.
At the tail end of 2018 I revamped the procedure to modding the Yamaha HS8’s.
I’m looking forward to making more smiles in 2019. I’m still working a day job, but I’m going to continue to work tirelessly toward spreading the word of my enhancement magic till these seeds finally take flower!!!
Past few months have been pretty exciting. Last year around this same time I was lucky to have a unit to work on every month or two. Fast forward to now... I am consistently working on 2-3 pcs at any given point. PLUS!!! I've been getting some work from actual touring and working musicians and producers. I REALLY need to start working on my enhanced artists page!!!
1. It was a long summer. My current day job has had me quite busy, but I did indeed complete the Volca Beats Modification. You can find it here in this site.
2. I've added a type of speaker mod service. If you live in the Chicagoland area, I actually have the ability to come out to your place and mod your speakers there, depending on the make and model. I've done this twice now with fantastic results.
3. Again for those in the Chicago / Northwest Indiana area... I have a demo pair of KRK rokit 5's. I can come out to your place and I can show how bad ass they sound.

About to finish up the full modification offering to the Volca Beats. Over TEN modifications on this little tiny device.
People on the Facebook Rotary Mixer group have been contacting me regarding the work I did recently on that UREI original 1620 rotary mixer. Based on this work, I may be developing a phono pre as an actual product. It'll be a clone of the UREI's phono pre's with a great sounding little EQ section, and will feature my "1620 yoUR'EI Aux Booster Card" circuitry on the output.
I am going to start to slowing roll out some interface mods. I've been discovering even better op amps, better capacitors, and am working on my own clock circuit based off of some interesting white papers I've been reading.
Entered 3 years after the fact, but March is when it happened:
In order to make room on a spread sheet of how much cash they were burning every month which was due to the current lame management happening at the time to new prospective buyers the owners of Black Lion Audio fired me after 10 years of blood sweet and soldering. I now have to work the food service industry and I’m going to work hard until I can make Danieldialatone a fulltime job.
