PRODUCT INFORMATION

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 minimise Jitter
  • Moplen clamp to avoid flywheel masses and vibrations
  • Sophisticated signal processing technology assures excellent CD Red Book signal
