Mine sounds really good. I'd say stick with the supplied components.  They were after all chosen by Graham to give the best sound.

Just listen, if it sounds good to you, enjoy it.

My first GS phono was a Fanfare which I enjoyed for some years with Ortofon MC15 carts. The Genera was an alternative for use with my somewhat vintage Ortofon VM 20 and 30 carts. I initially used it with the standard green wall wart, but when the MC carts became too worn, I upgraded the Genera with the PSU1. I later replaced the Ortofons with an AT440, which I still think bettered many "affordable" MCs of the time.
The Genera was a considerable improvement on the Audio Analogue Bellini and Maestro integrated phono stages I previously used, even more so with the PSU1.
The PSU 1 is certainly worthwhile and can of course be used with any of Graham's phono and headphone amps if you later upgrade.

I have a Genera pre-amp, which I built from the kit and recommend very highly. I stuck with the capacitors and other parts that Graham selected, except for a guided experiment changing the type and value of the input capacitors. The type supplied in the kit were better than any alternatives I tried.

I used my Genera with Graham's DAK Solo headphone amp, running both with the green SMPS adaptors. Very good sound at a pretty low price. Then I got a PSU1 and was pleased with the improvement in sound quality.

Hope that helps Bass man. Bass... a fine instrument that underpins most music or the sound that makes you feel music.

Jon

Open mind and ears whilst owning GSP Genera, Accession M, Accession MC, Elevator EXP, Solo ULDE, Proprius amps, Cusat50 cables, Lautus digital cable, Spatia cables and links, and a Majestic DAC.
