Description :
Wadia Digital was founded in 1988 as one of the original companies dedicated to high performance digital audio reproduction. Wadia was formed by a team of engineers who shared many years of experience in advanced digital telecommunications research and development. In the early 1980's, these engineers became intrigued by the emerging compact disc technology. In response, they founded Wadia Digital - a company based on the philosophy of applying advanced technology to improve the performance of digital audio components. Wadia's first product, the Wadia 2000 Decoding Computer, was an absolute breakthrough in digital audio. For many discerning listeners, it proved that Digital Audio was a musically responsive, evolving, and engaging format.

The Wadia 2000 is a sonic knockout. Its development is significant enough to reevaluate the status of the Compact Disc medium. This unit, when fed a carefully retrieved digital code, breaks new ground well beyond what until now has been the realm of the CD. The sounds from the Wadia 2000 are the state of the art by any standard. It substantiated the fact that CD is far better up to now, and can stand proudly on its own merits. It demonstrated, very convincingly, that a whole world of new information is there waiting to be retrieved. CD after CD was revealed to be not only sonically, but also musically more complete, more enjoyable than ever before. The improvements covered many areas of performance like spectral balance, dynamics, transparency, focus. Especially the soundstage, it was vast yet specific in proportions. The total soundspace was endowed with convincing volume, right down to the subtle tremors. While the stereo spread was surprisingly wide, it's only part of the story. This enticing horizontal dimensionality was augmented by an exacting rendition of depth. When people look into the stage, they see only as far as the CD permits, without artificially enhanced vastness. That's if the recording has a natural setting. The whole playback process is made credible because the soundspace dimensionality is tracked from CD to CD. This ability to convey a wide variety of soundspace conditions with great precision is what makes the Wadia 2000 a standout. But there's more. Since the soundstage information was recovered very aptly, the sonic imagery within it also fell into place. In some cases the vivid presentation of these born-again images was very startling. In most cases the image that materialized before the listener had a legitimate "reach out and touch me" validity. It was a stark and credible rendition. The Wadia 2000 really shone out outstandingly when confronted with demanding musical material.
