Wadia 9


Hi guys,

I've a problem that my Wadia 9 remote control can not call out the "Video mode" or "Audio mode" according to user manual...!
Whenever I press both "Time Base Correction" buttons on the remote control, the Wadia 9 display only shown either "Time base corrected" or " Input Signal Level 1". Even after I've done the plug & unplug(so called power up reset)of the power plug, still the same!
I'm very sure that I'm now listening to " Video mode" instead of " Audio mode"...!
Anybody out there can give me some advises how to fix it?

Your reply would be much appreciated...!

Hi Ghostrider45,
Thanks for your reply...!
Yes, I saw "Time Base Corrected" on the display after I've pressed both "Time Base Correction" buttons. Then "Input Signal Level 1". Then back to the "Time Base Corrected" again...! Never saw "Audio Mode" or "Video Mode" show up to confirm the status on the display according to user manual...!
The reason that I'm concern is due to the sound quality was not even close to what I've heard before. So, I suspected that I'm now in "Video Mode" instead of "Audio Mode".
What's wrong? Any ideas?
I don't think it ever says "audio mode" or "video mode" If it says "time base corrected" then the input buffer, which hold a second or so of audio, is engaged. This helps reduce jitter since the dac can clock out from the buffer independently of the clock on the source. The reason you can't use this feature with video is that it puts the audio out of sync with the video since the buffer introduces a delay.

So what else has changed in your system? What was the configuration like when it sounded good to you?
