Description

Excellent condition, beautiful sounding Dac for those who appreciate high quality sound. Purchased Early 2016 with 5 year warranty. Cost £2050 plus an upgraded USB board in Nov 2016.
Asking price includes postage and insurance.

Through auditioning both I originally chose the Aqua over the Auralic Vega Dac by a long shot which I found too harsh. The Aqua is a sweet sounding Dac and has been well loved in my system. USB and SPDIF inputs are superb. Toslink used for audio input from TV.

The new La Voce S2 combines product innovation and state-of-the-art technology, producing superior sound performance and the best styling.
Designed to provide absolute modularity and the ultimate in sound quality, La Voce S2 D/A converter is the culmination of years of aqua’s research in the areas of electronic engineering in relation to digital audio reproduction.

• Inputs:
- USB port - 24 bit / 192 KHz - Burr Brown PCM1704-K (2 dac) - sign magnitude R2R ladder DAC
- Optical TOSLINK - 24 bit / 96 KHz
- RJ45 AQlink (I2S serial bus) - 24 bit / 384 KHz
- BNC coax (S/PDIF) 75 ohm - 24 bit / 192 KHz

• Analog output:
- RCA single-ended

- MODULAR INPUT upgradeable, options:
- AES/EBU balanced 110 ohm - 24 bit / 192 KHz
- RCA coax (S/PDIF) 75 ohm - 24 bit / 192 KHz
- AT&T (ST Fiber) - 24 bit / 192 KHz
