The Art of the digital domain
Uncompromised in every respect, La Diva cd transport is the culmination of aqua’s R&D in the areas of electronic and mechanical engineering.

Features
- High performance proprietary ISDC (Isolated Synchronous Discrete Circuit) digital decoding  and clock manager
- Custom designed discrete circuit with high-speed photocouplers for Galvanic and magnetic isolation between CD drive unit and digital output
- Ultra massive chassis construction and newly developed high-rigidity sub chassis with Nextel for CD drive unit cancels internal and external acoustic and mechanical vibrations, enabling exceptionally accurate "Red Book" RF signal
- DC disc drive motor allows to read the data accurately and minimize Jitter
- Moplen clamp to avoid flywheel masses and vibrations
- Sophisticated signal processing technology assures excellent CD Red Book signal
- High-performance multi-stage voltage regulator (high-current stage for accurate servo DISC drive rotation, tracking and focus)
- Jitter free digital interface AQlink (I2S protocol), uncompromising digital connection to our DACs
