Product Description

Aqua Hifi La Diva Transport

Uncompromised in every respect, La Diva cd transport is the culmination of aqua’s R&D in the areas of electronic and mechanical engineering. If  you need a transport, this is the one to get. 



  • 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)
