Modification of hifi products

If you read on-line hifi publications and forums, you could not have missed proliferation of modded audio products.

One of the best justification for modifications I've seen is at Response Audio's Web site, read full text yourself.

They start by saying: "If you are simply not happy with the performance of your tube product (amplifier, preamp, CD player, etc.), modifications may not be the answer. Our modifications are designed to bring out more of the hidden potential within a product, not completely change its overall characteristics. We can bring out more resolution, inner detail, dynamic control, transparency, etc. We cannot change a Pinto into a Porsche."

Pay attention what they say about circuit mods and fallacy of categorically using "the best components".
