Simaudio Moon Neo 280D Streaming DSD DAC

  • Streams music services + local music libraries
  • Fully asynchronous DAC supports DSD up to DSD256 (USB only) and PCM from 44.1kHz to 384kHz (32-bit on USB only)
  • Eight (8) digital inputs (AES/EBU x 1, S/PDIF x 2, TosLink x 2, USB x 1, Bluetooth® with Qualcomm® aptX™, audio support and Ethernet) allowing for a connection to virtually any digital source.
  • USB input with galvanic isolation which eliminates all ground current (i.e. no electrical connection) between the USB device (computer, music server, etc.) and the 280D, which preserves the accuracy of the audio signal
  • The entire analog stage is a fully balanced differential circuit for increased dynamic range and headroom, higher resolution, as well as improved signal-to-noise ratio
  • Advanced analog signal path which uses an exceptional DC servo circuit and proprietary 18dB/octave analog filter
  • RS-232 port for (i) full unsolicited bidirectional feedback and (ii) firmware updates
  • IR input for external control
  • SimLink™ controller port for 2-way communications with other compatible MOON components
  • Features 4-Layer printed circuit boards with pure copper tracings for a much shorter signal path; which results in greater sonic accuracy and a dramatically improved signal-to-noise ratio.
  • Optimized selection of very high quality electronic components in a symmetrical circuit design
  • Rigid chassis construction to minimize the effects of external vibrations
  • Includes CRM-3 remote control
  • 17" (43cm) wide

The Neo 280D makes this a reality to keep a world of music right at your fingertips. You can simply launch your favorite music services app on your smart device and pair it to the Neo 280D using Bluetooth technology, sit back and enjoy the music.

The extraordinary digital engine within the Neo 280D decodes native DSD up to DSD256, as well as PCM up to 32-bit/384kHz, including DXD. The fully balanced analog stage features an exceptional 3rd order filter for lifelike transparency. The result is a level of fidelity that creates an beautiful emotional connection to your music.

Moreover, all the key features you’d expect in a MOON Neo Series product are present such as SimLink™, RS-232 and IR ports for custom-install environments.
