SimLink™

The SimLink™ connection allows for control of any SimLink equipped MOON system, enhancing ease of use, without having to use the IR remote. The MOON MiND Controller App can adjust the real volume control of a MOON system rather than using the most common digital attenuation method. This maintains the true fidelity of the music at any volume setting.

Apple AirPlay 2

The MiND2 streaming module and intuitive MiND app have ensured that MOON has long been the master of music control. The addition of AirPlay 2 further increases the range of connectivity options and will delight Apple lovers as the built-in controls on their device allow them to easily access their music. MOON owners can use Siri voice control to play their selected tracks.

AirPlay 2 offers complete control and lets the listener enjoy their favourite music or podcast throughout the home and in perfect sync. Different songs can be played in different rooms – music can be streamed in one room and a podcast can be played in another. With AirPlay 2 friends can add their own music to the mix. And all listeners can use Siri and say the song, say the room and then enjoy the performance.

All Moon equipment with the MiND2 streaming module from the 14th December 2021 will have Apple AirPlay2 by default. If you have equipment from prior to this date, please contact Future Shop and we will inform you of the upgrade process.

 

"Moon ACE impressed us with its ability to handle all kinds of sources and audio files. The audio reproduction was accurate but not analytical and it was very dynamic and detailed, especially with digital sources and lossless audio files. Moon ACE had no issues with deep bass frequencies. They were all handled with authority and power, but they have never been overwhelming. The midrange was perfectly balanced and consistent. None of the instruments and voices sticks out, but they are all distinctive and in harmony with each other. High frequencies were never harsh or sizzling – they were perfectly balanced with the rest of the spectrum which resulted in a very detailed and layered composition."

Audio Reputation - February 2019 

Moon ACE Hifi Pig Recommended

"The ACE allowed all the dynamics and subtelties of the recording to shine. The drums on the title track are understated in quantity but not in quality, each cymbal stroke gangs in the air with a realistic decay and every snare thwack resonates with the shell of the drum, not just the skin."

HiFi Pig - November 2016

"Let’s cut to the chase – the Neo Ace is a sublime performer. Its wonderfully transparent, open presentation makes anything sound amazing, from web radio up to Hi-Res Audio files. Any source, any quality – the Moon simply delivers. I continued using it long after writing this review, such is the addictive, satisfying nature of its performance."

Trusted Reviews - September 2016

"One of the sonic highlights was the bass. I’m not inferring that bass dominated this track. On the contrary. What bass did, though, was take the normally shy upright bass and give it a fuller role in the song. The Moon offered a secure and weighty foundation for the lower frequencies. Also, more importantly, bass was particularly focused so that it never got in the way. On a lesser system, bass can be smudged with an irritating bloom that infects the midrange. All of these positive factors added to the sense of a clean sonic output from the Moon."

The Audiophile Man - September 2016

Moon ACE What Hi-Fi? 5 Star Review

"You’ll want to spend every waking moment with the Moon Neo Ace – it’s an inviting performance that makes you want to listen to every single song in your library all over again.

We start by streaming from our NAS drive, and five hours later, we’ve pretty much gone through all our favourite albums. There are layers of detail uncovered by the Ace. You can easily place every instrument in the wide, open soundstage."

What Hi-Fi 5 Star Review - August 2016

Moon ACE Hi-Fi+ Review

"How does it sound? This is the best bit because it retains all the characteristic Moon Neo performance parameters: a deeply unfatiguing yet remarkably satisfying sound, with an extremely large, walk-in-and-make-yourself-comfortable soundstage, excellent precision of dynamic range, image placement, detail, and timing, and that sense of musical ‘structure’ rising out of a very dark background. And yet, it seems to have achieved this without the usual nine months of run-in before it sounds good. Yes, the ACE gets better over time, but it’s more like letting a good bottle of wine breathe for an hour or so than laying it down to age."

Hi-Fi+ - June 2016
