i was talking to a dude the other day that was telling me if the IC chip was replaced in my AT 3035, it'd only cost a few bucks for the new chip, and it'd be easy to to. Benfits he said, would be lower noise floor, and increased headroom. We didn't get into specifics but basically he said the chip that comes stock is about 10cents to buy, and an improved chip would come around for $3-$4, max being around $10. Said it's an easy upgrade as long as the polarity wasn't reversed upon the replacement. Does this sound resonable?
