    With the new analog board (for formula xHD), the performance is elevated.

    Had an S2 and really enjoyed it. I liked the option of changing DAC modules for different flavors. Does the S3 and La Scala have this option?

    I have a friend that loves his original Aqua La Voce. He went through a PSA Direct Stream, Yggdrasil, Metrum Hex and a few others before settling on the Aqua DAC. He loves the very analog sound of the DAC.
