Moon by Simaudio 280D MiND2 Network Streaming DAC

 

Imagine a world of music right at your fingertips. The 280D makes this a reality. Simply launch your favourite 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 3rd order filter for lifelike transparency. The result is a level of fidelity that creates an emotional connection to your music.

The MiND2 module provides convenience and a full graphic interface, allowing you to effortlessly access your digital music library with power and flexibility. Which ever way you use the 280D, it will become the centre of your musical pleasure.

Features

  • Fully asynchronous DAC
  • Supports native DSD64, DSD128 & DAD256 (USB only)
  • Supports PCM up to 384kHz (32-bit on USB only)
  • 8 digital inputs for use with virtually any digital source
  • USB input with galvanic isolation which eleminates all ground current (i.e. no electrical connection) between the USB device (computer, music server, etc.) and the 280D, preserving the accuracy of the audio signal.
  • Front panel LED indicators for active input and input signal PCM sampling & DSD rates
  • Analogue stage: fully balanced differential circuit for increased dynamic range and headroom, higher resolution, as well as improved signal-to-noise ratio
  • 4-Layer printed circuit boards with pure copper tracings for a much shorter signal path; This results in greater sonic accuracy and a dramatically improved signal-to-noise ratio.
  • Multi-room synchronized playback
  • Roon Ready device
  • Tidal, with Tidal Masters support
  • Deezer, with Deezer Hi-Fi support
  • Qobuz. with Qobuz Sublime+ support

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.

Roon Ready

MOON believes that nothing should stand between the listener and the authenticity of the original recording. The result is a newfound closeness between the listener and artist, edging closer to the ultimate goal: access to the purest sound.

From concept to manufacturing to listening to customer service, the entire team at MOON is dedicated to ensuring products stand the test of time. With a 10-year warranty on products, everyone at MOON has confidence in everything they make, and they take pride in the fact that almost all of their environmentally-friendly parts and products are impeccably crafted at Simaudio head quarters right in Quebec, Canada.

With MOON, you don’t just listen to music, you live it. That is why adding Roon to your MOON sound system will enhance your experience of discovering the infinity of music.

Make sure your device is updated to the latest firmware by checking the MOON by Simaudio web site. Next sign up for a Roon subscription and download and install Roon on your Mac, PC, or Linux NAS. Connect your device via network or USB, and launch Roon to get going.

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.
