Wadia 861 GNSC Reference Upgrade

Can anyone comment on the Reference upgrade from GNSC. Was the difference huge or did you need to sit back and spend time with it. I understand that there is break in time involved with the upgrade. Did this upgrade bring your system closer to analog sound and would you recommend having it done? I have a simple one source system which consists of a Cary V-12R with the oil cap upgrade, Verity Audio Fideio speakers, Siltech IC's, Elrod PC's and Silver Audio symphony 48 speaker cables. Thank you in advance for any and all imput!
Yes, the mods do sound significantly better. I also agree that if it is in your means, get the SE upgrade (this is a new transport mechanism) and either the Ref. or Statement mod. Definitely worth the price of admission. If you plan on doing this in stages I'm sure Steve would be happy to describe the best path. Good luck!
Hey, Let me ask some of you. What algorythm(Spelling) do ya'll use? I use the the C. Sometimes I use the A. Just depends on my mood.
Hey Philefreak,
How bout them Eagles? I have a Wadia 861 with a GNSC statement upgrade and I have changed every piece in my system over the last couple of years with the exception of my Wadia. Yes, I've had it modified, but every time I send it to Steve for something, I get it back sounding better than ever. Some day I plan on having the SE upgrade done. In the meantime, I have experimented with algorythm changes and I ultimately ended up on A.
I would agree that if you are doing an upgrade, you might as well go the whole hog. I have the SE with statement mods which I shipped half way round the world. I wouldn't change my Wadia for anything. I use algorithm A. B and C seem flat and lifeless in my system. The only thing that improved my Wadia was the addition of a Supratek preamp. Now that I'd recommend!
