Designed to provide absolute modularity, the La Voce S3 is a pure R2R ladder - FPGA-based DAC without a digital filter. It has a sign-magnitude ladder converter. The absence of digital filtering means no processing of the input signal. The original digital samples are translated to the reproduced sound, preserving the transient shape and avoiding any ringing. In this way, we also avoid the "intersample overs" problem that is vital to faithful reproduction, considering current recording studio practices. Our R2R conversion technology makes the sound natural, fast, dynamic, and without the sense of compression, characterizing other converters.
