Anyone have their Tri-Vista21 modded?

I have been contemplating having my DAC modded. I would appreciate feedback from anyone that had their Tri-Vista 21 updated and your impression of the changes good and bad, and for opinions as to whether you thought it was worth it.

The one that I went to was the Accustic Arts DAC 1 Mk 3, and then upgraded to the Accustic Arts DAC 1 Mk 4. They're very good DACs.

I've since gone with the Wadia 581se CD Player driving just my power amp. That let me get rid of:

1. the CD Transport, power cord and digital cable.
2. the DAC
3. the Pre-amp, power cord and interconnect.

So all that I have now is:

1. the CD Player, power cord and interconnect
2. the Amp and power cord

It's a simple setup and it sounds great to me.

Thank Krell man,

I actually really like the sound of the Tri-Vista DAC with my set up so I would have no issue keeping it for a while. I am looking for a little more clarity and improved dynamic without impacting the organic sound of this DAC

What DAC would you recommend as a replacement if I where to go down that path
I had a TriVista 21 DAC too, and also thought about having it modded. UnderwoodWally brought up two good points to think about before doing this:

1. You will not get the price of the mod back upon resale.

2. If you don't plan on keeping the DAC for a long time, keep the $1000.00 and put it towards the new DAC.

There are much better DACs out there, but of course they also cost more. So, what's your goal for your system?

I had an un-modded tri vista, and replaced it with a scott nixon dac. Have not heard a modded one.
