Simaudio MOON Evolution MC-8 Multi-Channel Power Amplifier - 7 Channel

MOON by Simaudio

An Amplifier to end all Multi-Channel Amplifiers. The State-of-the-art Redefined!

  • Available in configurations from 2 to 7 channels, the MOON MC-8 was designed with one overwhelming goal in mind: uncompromising reproduction of both, the massive dynamics and awe inspiring sonics that accompany today’s uncompressed multi-channel BluRay audio recordings. To accomplish this feat and the numerous engineering challenges that go with it, a whole new approach to the design of multi-channel amplification was required.

    Relying on many technologies found in our highlyacclaimed Evolution Series power amplifiers, numerous physical and electrical constraints had to be overcome to create a multi-channel amplifier where all seven channels would be capable of identically staggering performance. The result is the MC-8, which can produce a maximum continuous power output of 250 watts per channel into 8 ohms, 500 watts per channel into 4 ohms and 1000 watts per channel into 2 ohms, generating a mind-numbing ultra-high-current output of 280 amperes spread across 7 channels.

    Unlike most multi-channel amplifier’s, the MC-8’s sonic performance is uncompromised by the number of installed channels. This is due to its massive power supply and a modular, open architecture design. Additional channel modules can be added easily after the initial purchase.

    The MOON MC-8 is leaps beyond anything else available. A quick listen will reveal a level of sound purity, sheer power and limitless dynamics that no other multi-channel power amplifier has ever been able to attain, let alone hint at. This is a genuine masterpiece, a technological tour-de-force, and a colossal achievement that has no equal.

    • Modular circuit design using plug-in cards for each channel’s circuitry, allowing for upgrades “in the field”.
    • Precision matched proprietary MOON output transistors for improved bass response and accurate sonic reproduction.
    • "Class A” power output to 5 watts for greater efficiency.
    • A very high damping factor for superior musical dynamics, improved signal speed and refined timbre accuracy.
