The new generation of La Diva is a machine that while maintaining the previous name is completely new, both as regards the CD mechanics and for all the internal electronics, power supply, FPGA decoding, clock, floating digital output circuitry, display, etc., so everything has been made from scratch.

This was necessary to increase the performance and SQ. Our goal is to amaze our customers.

La Diva M2 remains a "pure-CD" machine: Aqua has chosen here to keep focused solely on CD reading, aiming for the best possible results for this medium.

This was done by interfacing the last and most advanced Philips CD decoding circuit - with digital servo control - to proprietary Aqua electronics.

The reading mechanism used is designed and optimized solely for reading CDs and nothing else. And, after working to modify massively the new transport CD Pro-8S about performance and mechanical silence.

Also, the new display will be ultra-visible and with adjustable brightness! And no LCD or commercial panelsUncompromised in every respect, La Diva cd transport is the culmination of aqua’s R&D in the areas of electronic and mechanical engineering.

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)

• Jitter free digital interface AQlink (I2S protocol), uncompromising digital connection to our DACs

• 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

• MODULAR DESIGN with upgradeable multi board system

• Precision Philips CD-Pro2 transport customized
