    I've upped the current A1SE upgrade thread for you which should answer your question.

    If you can't be bothered to read it, the answers 'yes' :)

    You decision appears to by financial rather than quality based and if this is the case I would be inclined to do something else with your cash.

    Financial ,no not at all i just am looking for feed back from people who have had the upgrade and to gauge an honest response to see if there is a noticible difference in the sound and is it £600 well spent.

    Why do u ask have u had your a1se upgraded if so i would appreciate your comments.

    Urban T thanks for the info i will be upgrading but the lack of new boards available is a tad worrying.

    regards

    Actually I have the AVC-A1SR and have no experience of the older version (even though I was about to purchase one) but having visited many different forums (worldwide) everyone who got the upgrade is very impressed and I have not seen any contrary views.

    If you have the money and are looking for an improvement in quality you should upgrade as soon as possible.
