Simaudio MOON 280D DSD DAC

MOON by Simaudio

A high performance fully asynchronous DSD256 / 32-bit DAC with versatility, including Bluetooth aptX.

  • I magine a world of music right at your fingertips. The 280D makes this a reality. Simply launch your favorite music services app on your smart device and pair it to the 280D using Bluetooth technology. Then sit back and enjoy the music.

    The extraordinary digital engine within the 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 DC servo circuit and proprietary 3rd order filter for lifelike transparency. The result is a level of fidelity that creates an emotional connection to your music.

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

    • Fully asynchronous DAC supports native DSD64, DSD128 and DSD256 (USB only) and PCM up to 384kHz (32-bit on USB only).
    • 7 digital inputs (AES/EBU x 1, S/PDIF x 2, TosLink x 2, USB x 1 and Bluetooth x 1) for use with virtually any digital source.
    • aptX® support allows for better quality audio over Bluetooth®.
    • Front panel LED indicators for (i) input signal PCM sampling & DSD rates and (ii) active input.
    • The analog stage is a fully balanced differential circuit for increased dynamic range and headroom, higher resolution, as well as improved signal-to-noise ratio.
