Aqua, of Milan, Italy, produce the La Voce DAC which is a modular design. They have just announced the new D/A conversion module for La Voce S3 with Discrete R2R Ladder DAC architecture.

Owners of original La Voce can upgrade to La Voce S3 Discrete DAC. The update for the La Voce units of existing owners consists of the following hardware / firmware modifications:

  1. FPGA / decoding board cod. P608, high-resolution up to 384kHz PCM and DSD128.
  2. R2R Ladder resistors board cod. P607
  3. USB board cod. P901 with new firmware
  4. Hardware modification of main board P601
  5. Hardware modification of I2S / USB board P603

    The Formula DAC is the first in the aqua - acoustic production to show a proprietary D/A conversion system, that they have named Optologic DAC. This conversion system follows the same multibit technology (already used in the previous DACs such as La Voce and La Scala) but with a discrete R2R resistors ladder instead of Burr Brown PCM1704 dacs.  Galvanic and magnetic isolations are implemented between…
