La Diva – CD Transport

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 Diva is an Hi End CD Transport with dual power supply for analogue and digital circuit.

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)

FEATURES

Jitter free digital interface AQlink (I2S protocol), uncompromising digital connection to La Scala DAC, La Voce DAC

etherCON RJ45 (AQlink) output connection to DAC, employs CAT6 cable can connect both RJ45 and professional etherCON RJ45

Separate custom-built toroidal transformers for digital and servo motors/actuators
