The new generation La Diva

Aqua has never followed the whims of market fashion but has always remained focused on achieving true high fidelity sound reproduction.

La Diva M2​ | pure-CD machine

The new generation La Diva is a machine that while maintaining the previous name is completely new, both in regards to the CD mechanic and all the internal electronics, power supply, FPGA decoding, clock, floating digital output circuitry, display, etc., entirely a new design.

This was necessary to increase the performance and sound quality. Our goal is always to amaze our customers.

The La Diva M2 remains a ”pure-CD” machine: Aqua has chosen to keep focused solely on CD reading, aiming for the best possible results with this medium. This was done by interfacing the latest and most advanced Philips CD decoding circuit – with digital servo control – to our proprietary Aqua electronics.

The reading mechanism used is designed and optimized solely for reading CDs and nothing else, the modified new CD Pro-8S transport has attained a new level of performance and mechanical silence.

Proprietary circuits have been developed in the coding / output FPGA, in order to implement the galvanically isolated AQlink I2S, AES/EBU outputs, AT&T Fiber, S/PDIF outputs. The internal Master-Clock of the CD Pro-8S has been disabled, therefore managed via FPGA.

This is an important point: during the listening tests, and also in the laboratory ones, we obtained the best results with the use of this fully-floating isolated architecture.

Furthermore, the new display offers a really nice and ultra-visible micro-LED display with adjustable brightness! No LCD or commercial panels, Aqua only uses industrial components.
