Europese primeur: Aqua Acoustic DAC’s bij Streaming4Home


Redactie HiFi.nl | 31 oktober 2013

Het Italiaanse Aqua Acoustics lanceert twee nieuwe D/A converters: de La Voce Mk II (€ 2.095) en de La Scala Mk II (€ 4.590). Daarnaast is ook het La Diva cd-loopwerk (€ 7.550) beschikbaar.

Beide D/A converters zijn elk voorzien van meerdere digitale ingangen, waaronder een asynchrone USB-poort, die signalen tot 192 kHz/24 bit aan kan.

Op zaterdag 9 november organiseert Streaming4Home een luisterdag waar de nieuwe DAC’s worden voorgesteld, samen met de Digibit Aria muziekserver, de Modwright LS-36.5 buizenvoorversterker, de KWA 150 SE eindversterker en de Revel F208 luidsprekers.
