• Introducing the new La Scala MKII D/A Converter

Since its introduction in 2010, the La Scala D/A converter has earned the distinction of "the standard reference in a class by itself".With its extraordinary sound quality and stylish appearance it has remained the DAC of discerning audio enthusiasts. Improving the sonic performance of the La Scala was no small task. The first step was to enhance the overall precision of the digital circuit. La Scala MkII inherits the innovative proprietary DFD decoding without any digital filter, assuring a pure and precise digital signal. In addition aqua - acoustic quality has developed a single-stage signal amplifier: VALVE / MOSFET direct-coupled and LED bias.
"There’s no doubt that this is the finest sounding DAC to date to grace my life/system/website with its presence."

• The Art of 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.
• La Scala in the Darko Premier League

"There’s no doubt that this is the finest sounding DAC to date to grace my life/system/website with its presence. Before that it was Resonessence Labs’ INVICTA Mirus (US$4995). Aqua Hifi provide us with proof positive that the return on moving well beyond a $5k spend is very real. VERY REAL. Whilst the La Scala MKII is a decoder capable of stunning performance it’s presented quietly, sans piety and without Aqua needing to substantiate their modus operandi with daft PR proclamations that things aren’t as good as they used to be, that the good old days are behind us, that modern life is rubbish, that summers aren’t as hot as they were when we were kids, that policemen are getting younger or that your current DAC sounds ‘broken’. That spells twice the triumph."
