"One word to nail this Aqua’s essence? Rectitude"
The DAR-KO award for La Voce S2
John H. Darko "DIGITAL AUDIO REVIEW"
"With the La Scala II, I got both plus. In that sense it was an audio equivalent of the Buddhist Middle Path high up the mythical mountain." "Put my name down too on this growing list of outspoken admirers for the Aqua Hifi La Scala II."
La Scala MK II Blue Moon Award
Srajan Ebaen "6MOONS"
“La Voce's big brother, Aqua HIfi's La Scala, is justifiably well regarded as a master of musicality at a non uber-DAC price point. Little brother La Voce… R2R NOS DAC is the genuine article; incredibly natural sounding with all genres, easily winning a place in my system up against various and sundry more 'modern' Sabre and delta/sigma based brethren. Some things were done a certain way for a long time for good reason”
La Voce S2 dac AWARDED again - Stereo Times Most Wanted Component 2015
David Abramson "STEREO TIMES"
"With the original La Scala 2 being one of my two reference converters and the top deck in contributor John Darko's DAC index, exploring audible space beyond it seemed, truth be told, a rather tall order. How much room was there left for improvement? What ungodly reference gear would it take to hear it? (.....)
Formula DAC 6MOONS Blue Moon Award
Srajan Ebaen, 6MOONS
"La Scala gives the feisty one-finger salute to DSD might tell you how I feel about that fashion madness. That it manages an ideal balance between speed and substance tells you why it had my vote. A most analogue digital deck, albeit sans volume control!"
La Scala MKII - The publisher's year's favourites 2014 by Srajan Ebaen
Srajan Ebaen "6MOONS"
"No DAC impressed me more in 2014 - or any other year for that matter - than the Aqua La Scala MKII." "the best-sounding D/A converter we’ve heard to date. The La Scala’s almost sentient way with drama and textural reveal puts it at the very top of the Darko DAC Index"
