The MOON 390 is a multi-function crossover type product that has the function of a modern network player, DAC, preamplifier, headphone amplifier, and phono stage. Roughly, it combines the feature set of both older model 350P and 380D and adds further. Another point of view: it can be seen as an All-in-One without a power amplifier. Still, it will be pricier than Moon's All-in-One ACE as it is of a higher pedigree and higher performance level. The 390 was the first new product to benefit from MiND 2 streamer technology.

The MOON 390 is a multi-function crossover type product that has the function of a modern network player, DAC, preamplifier, headphone amplifier, and phono stage. Roughly, it combines the feature set of both older model 350P and 380D and adds further. Another point of view: it can be seen as an All-in-One without a power amplifier. Still, it will be pricier than Moon's All-in-One ACE as it is of a higher pedigree and higher performance level. The 390 was the first new product to benefit from MiND 2 streamer technology.

The MOON 390 features the new MiND2 streaming module. MiND2 (MOON intelligent Network Device) is a fabulous way of organizing, streaming and listening to your music. MiND 2 allows the playback of all the most common file formats, including DSD and MQA (via local files and TIDAL Master files). The MiND2 also boasts a USB host port, permitting access to music on USB thumb drives. Finally, MiND2 will also stream any digital input of the 390 to other MiND zones on the same network.

Simaudio’s MOON products produce sound that’s so pure and authentic that they offer a new proximity to the performer. And, because you never want those intimate moments with the artist to end, all MOON products are built to be enjoyed over a lifetime.

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.

 

What Hi-Fi? MOON 390 5 Stars Review

"We connect our MacBook to the USB input and find that the Moon has no issue skipping from DSD (up to DSD256) and 24-bit/192kHz PCM (with a upper limit of 384kHz) to MQA files.

There’s a fine sense of organisation and a commendable level of composure when the piece gets demanding. The 390 never sounds rushed or flustered, and that allows the listener to sit back and simply enjoy the music."

What Hi-Fi? 5 Star Review -  November 2018

"After two days I sat down in my listening chair and started to listen more critically. First impressions always count, and these were overwhelmingly positive. Whether playing silver discs or vinyl, I was totally immersed in the music. The grip on the Harbeths was extraordinary. Subtle detail was revealed clearly yet there was tremendous bass slam when required. I played disc after disc and loved the clean, powerful sound of the Moon pairing. Effortless, yet with rhythm, pace and timing very reminiscent of my high end Naim system more than a decade ago, but with a slightly more three dimensional presentation. It boogies hard when required but has a brilliant lightness of touch with acoustic and classical material too. Stereo imaging and sound staging are absolutely terrific. Individual instruments have their own space and do not wander about disconcertingly."

The EAR - March 2019

"My listening told me that the MOON 390 is an utterly transparent DAC-preamp with a noise floor so low it’s difficult to believe"

 

"Rich and full, the bass speed and quality are both excellent. The soundstage is well-presented for the price level of the preamplifier, it’s not as cavernous and as vast as the VAC/Dave/dCS, but it’s impressive. There’s something that’s inviting about what it’s doing. The 390 shows the musicality of the players, the sense of fun, and communication that’s going on."
