MOON by Simaudio

A true high-performance, high-end, affordable digital product that meets current and future needs. The Neo 260D CD transport with optional 32-bit DAC is the next evolutionary step in combining high-performance, useful features, CD playback and music streaming all into one chassis.

  • The Nēo 260D CD Transport with optional 32-bit DAC is the next evolutionary step in combining high-performance, useful features, CD playback and music streaming into one chassis.

    Borrowing much of its technology from the more exotic and costlier 650D in the Evolution series, the Nēo 260D can do it all: Want to stream music from your computer? How about enjoying your favorite satellite movie channels with the audio fidelity of your music system? Or perhaps listen to your Blu-Ray movies with the same fervor as your music collection. Then again, if you simply want to play your favorite CD’s, the Nēo 260D does that with powerful digital technology that extracts every last musical detail from the disc.

    The Nēo 260D offers superb flexibility as a result of being a CD Transport and a DAC all-in-one. Thanks to its 32-bit processing engine, upsampling capabilities, hallmark MOON oversized power supplies and elaborate analog stage, the Nēo 260D’s sonic performance is without equal in its price category. The DAC section is entirely optional, whereby you can easily add it later on, if not needed right now.

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