Innovation through Technologies
Aqua – Acoustic Quality equipment is not subject to the whims of market fashion since they are build to achieve true high fidelity sound reproduction.
By combining dedicated research with creative thinking, R & D Department has brought forth a range of innovation whose aim is to recreate the experience of live music in your home. Some of these:
• Proprietary Optologic R2R system with galvanically isolating and fully decoupling DAC
• Discrete R2R ladder DACs with low noise precision resistors
• High performance proprietary FPGA-based digital decoding without digital filter
• Exclusive high-performance digital interface AQlink (I2S protocol), uncompromising digital connection from transport unit to DAC, employs CAT6 cable can connect both RJ45 and professional etherCON RJ45

La Voce S2 DAC
