Digital Audio Specialists, Aqua - Acoustic Quality Appoints Audio Magic as New Distributor

Based in Milan, Italy and founded in 2021, Aqua-Acoustic Quality has been juggled by a few distributors since its early days but now rests at Melbourne-based Audio Magic for distribution in Australia.

Cristian Anelli, Aqua’s founder, chief engineer and product designer, tells us Aqua - Acoustic Quality equipment “is not subject to the whims of market trends but built to achieve true high fidelity sound reproduction.”

Anelli continues:

By combining dedicated research with creative thinking, our research and development have brought forth a range of innovations aimed at recreating the live music experience.

Its small but potent range includes two DACs (La Scala Mk2 $11,900,  Formula xHD Rev.2 $22,000), the La Diva M2 CD Transport ($14,000), and the LinQ Network Interface ($10,500).  

Entirely built in Italy, Aqua says its mission “is to build electronics able to create the emotional connections one experiences with live music”. Anelli adds, “in our view, this can only be realized by submitting every individual component to a series of listening tests. For aqua, being able to reproduce the precise temporal response, dynamics and harmony of sound far outweighs technical measurements. After all, achieving “analog sound” is what matters most. We are continuously experimenting and open to new discoveries which is why our machines are modular and upgradable to accommodate future technology.”

Aqua - Acoustic Quality’s range is available now from Audio Magic and selected retail outlets.
