Wadia Digital, founded in 1988, is one of the original companies dedicated to high performance digital audio reproduction. Wadia was formed by a team of engineers from the Minneapolis based 3M Corporation (Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing) 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. Disappointed with the sound quality of early CD players, they examined the workings and designs of these early components and found them to be unsophisticated when compared with the technology available in other areas of digital design. In response, they founded Wadia Digital - a company based on the philosophy of applying advanced technology to improve the performance of digital audio components.

Company description
Building on a tradition of excellence, Wadia continues to develop innovative technology; refining, listening, engineering, and improving along the way. Since the Wadia 2000, new generations of industry-leading designs have been introduced and embraced by listeners around the world. Each step of the way, Wadia has consistently raised the standard for performance of Digital Audio playback.

Here is a brief list of the technological innovations the Wadia engineers have pioneered over the past 20 years:
DigiMaster(tm) patented algorithm (filter optimized for reproducing music)
ClockLink(tm) proprietary jitter reduction technology
SwiftCurrent(tm) current to voltage conversion technology
First outboard Digital-to-Analog converter
First to apply glass fiber-optics to home audio
First to recognize jitter as a source of audible distortion
First to perfect digital volume control
First high-end CD player competitive with expensive separates
First company to provide bit perfect digital audio output from the iPod
Although Wadia's digital expertise and track record exceed those of any audio company, technology alone does not guarantee musical performance. Wadia designs are born of a delicate balance of technology shaped by a passion for music.
Without doubt, the most important technical feature of these new Players is Wadia's philosophy of design. As with all Wadia products, these designs evolved through a balance of technology guided by a passion for, and understanding of, the power of music.

This design method is a fascinating process. As each new product is created, Wadia engineers develop new technical concepts that they believe will ensure great performance. These new concepts result from Wadia's previous work on digital playback, but also from broad research of leading-edge techniques from other digital fields, such as telecommunications and image processing.
