The design and manufacture of audio equipment, are marked by constant and indispensable values that aqua - acoustic quality pursues with dedication. aqua - acoustic quality was founded in Italy, proudly carries on musical excellence, artistic tradition, the spirit of innovation and craftsmanship of its people.
Research and Development
aqua - acoustic quality equipment is not subject to the whims of market fashion since they are build to achieve true high fidelity sound reproduction. By combining dedicated research with creative thinking, R & D Department has brought forth a range of innovation whose aim is to recreate the experience of live music in your home. Some of these:
• proprietary DFD (Direct From Decoder) digital decoding without digital filter for purest digital signal quality. Innovative treatment of the PCM digital signal: after exhaustive listening tests, a 1x sample rate has been chosen as the best.
• Exclusive high-performance digital interface AQlink (I2S protocol), uncompromising digital connection from transport unit to DAC, employs CAT6 cable can connect both RJ45 and professional etherCON RJ45
• discrete circuit with high-speed photocouplers for Galvanic and magnetic isolation

Over many years of research and development and countless design iterations, SGR has consistently found new ways to isolate vibrations from the rack feet to the turn-table and transport.
Energy Sink Isolation Pads
The CNC milled and veneered Corian™ stone provides the final level of vibration isolation for the equipment surface
Constrained Layered Damping
The platform has a further level of isolation with an extruded polymer mat sandwiched between precision routed wooden composite layers.
Purpose Made Silicon Isolators
When you sit your prized equipment on each level, expect to feel a little give, as the silicon isolators kick in to provide the most exceptional level of isolation in our modular racking system.
Our CNC machined cross-braces provide an exceptionally stable and rigid surface for each platform to rest upon while isolation pads further reduce vibration distortion through the posts.
Crushed Quartz Filled Posts
Crushed quartz crystal filled posts add weight and rigidity to dampen unwanted frequencies.
Stainless Steel Feet
Our spikes and ball-race levelers provide exceptional fine adjustment and leveling options for a variety of carpeted and hard floor surfaces.

Based on the resources of one of high end‘s most distinguished design companies, the Swiss cables product range offers truly innovative technical design and sonic merits at a groundbreaking price-performance level, manufactured to the highest standards in Switzerland.
Swisscables - signal- and power-products - incorporate latest generation metallurgy, application specific, field-optimizing conductor geometry, premium connectors and novel micro distortion-free insulation technologies whose sonic benefits cannot be achieved with the materials employed in the majority of high end cables available today, whatever their price. Made in Switzerland in conformity with modern eco-standards.
The success we achieved so far with Swiss cables is thanks to the following facts:
- We use only first-grade materials and all our cables are fully handmade in Switzerland
- Swisscables have all UP OCC solid core conductors of special copper alloy
- We wrap the wire in a light natural fibre which weights approximately 2 g per meter
- The implemented geometry is adapted to the required length of the cable
- The wire network is introduced into a flexible tube and around this natural bre is solely air (air-dielectric!)
- We use wood as resonator for our connectors
Characteristic features of the different ranges are the dimensions with the corresponding geometry and the different connectors which lead to more energy and let you experience the soundstage again more intensively.
