Simaudio MOON Neo ACE Appeals to Hi-res Audio Streamers

Simaudio MOON Neo ACE - 2-Tone

MOON by Simaudio announced the MOON Neo ACE “All in One” Integrated Amplifier + Streaming Digital-to-Analog Converter. The company claims it offers the finest sound available and can do virtually anything expected of a high-performance audio component, but you still need to add the speakers.

Simply hook up a pair of speakers, connect to the internet and you are ready for music.  Simaudio’s MiND (MOON intelligent Network Device) module provides convenience and a full graphic interface, allowing for effortless access to a digital music library with power and flexibility. Most buyers would likely want the TIDAL streaming service (not included) for unlimited access to hi-res music.

Bridging digital and analog audio, the ACE includes a high resolution DAC with DSD decoding up to DSD256 and 32-bit/384kHz PCM. At the other end of the audio spectrum, a moving magnet phono preamplifier rounds out this complete package. Additional features include SimLink, RS-232 and IR ports for custom-install environments.

Features:

  • 3 line-level inputs including a front-mounted 1/8″ mini-jack for personal media players.
  • Headphone output on 1/4″ jack located on the front panel.
  • Seamless integration with our MiND app.
  • Eight (8) digital inputs include USB (hi-res audio), SPDIF (2), Optical (2), aptX®
  • Bluetooth, WiFi and Ethernet inputs.
  • The first MOON product using an OLED type screen which provides more detailed information.
  • Simple MiND setup via on-board software menu.
  • Moving magnet phono preamplifier input
  • Analog inputs are configurable to “pass-through” mode, which bypasses the gain stage to accommodate components like a home-theater processor, whose own volume control is used.

Price and Availability
The MOON Neo ACE will be available in Q1 2016 with an MSRP of $3,500 USD in black, silver, or 2-tone.
