Where to get GNSC mod CD player repaired

I have a Wadia 581 modified by GNSC that requires to replace the CD transport (I guess), does anyone know who can do the work?

Thanks a lots

didnt the founder of GNSC join another major audio company? I think if you google his name, you will find it. Good luck.
From Resolution Audio Website...do not know if it is still current information. Good luck.

Really a shame that GNSC went out of business. They did some great stuff. I have several pieces and have enjoyed them very much.
GNSC officially closed shop and Steve is continuing his work with Resolution Audio. You might try contacting there and see if he might be of assistance.
Before Steve closed shop, he left a post on his site. He left the name of 3 techs.

I would send it to Wadia. I don't see why they would not replace the transport if this is what is defective. I would call Wadia.
Good luck.
You should definitely contact Wadia first.
thank you all very much, I did call Wadia 3 times and left voice mail, no one replied so far.

I will try the True Sound first and later post the result.
Good luck!
I can repair the unit contact me at vujadeaudio@optimum.net

I am in New Jersey.
Who repaired your CD player? How was it turn out? I have an issue on my Wadia 781i Cd player. I contacted Wadia. It came to my huge upset that Wadia simply emailed me to say Wadia could not offer the repair as the vendor of the CD mechanism on longer supplied the parts to Wadia. I have a huge problem with repair. I'd like to know who will be able to do the repair. Thanks.

did you get the player fixed? Whom did the repair?
What was the issue? Keep me posted & Happy Listening!
Just received my Resolution Audio Opus 21 modded player back from Steve. He replaced the laser. Not sure if it was because it was an RA product and he now works for them, but worth an email.
Can't hurt to try.
Thanks! for sharing- Brrgrr -

we need more modders to fix the wonderful gear (especially cd/dvd spinners) out there. Newer product does not always equal better performance. A simple part here or a simple tweak there and it is like new.

Keep me posted & Happy Listening!
