260D

£1950 – £2700

A true high-performance, high-end, affordable digital product that meets current and future needs. The 260D CD transport with optional 32-bit DAC is the next evolutionary step in combining high-performance, useful features, CD playback and music streaming all into one chassis.

The 260D provides superb flexibility as a result of it being a CD Transport and a DAC all-in-one.

For music enthusiasts who simply want to play their CD’s, the 260D is the perfect solution. Borrowing much of its technology from the more exotic and costlier 650D, while incorporating the latest advancements in digital audio, the 260D extracts every last musical detail from the disc.

Thanks to its 32-bit processing engine, upsampling capabilities, hallmark MOON oversized power supplies and elaborate analog stages, the 260D’s sonic performance is without equal in its price category. The DAC section is entirely optional, whereby you can easily add it later on, if not needed right now.

260DT Transport only is £1950 or with DAC for £2700.

  • Proprietary CD drive system mounted on Simaudio’s M-Quattro gel-based 4-point floating suspension for vibration damping, allowing ambient & spatial cues in your recordings to come to life like never before.
  • Two digital outputs: S/PDIF and AES/EBU.
  • Oversized power supply with up to 13 stages of voltage regulation (5 for Transport and 8 for the DAC).
  • RS-232 port for (i) full unsolicited bidirectional feedback and (ii) firmware updates.
  • IR input for external control.
  • SimLink™ controller port for 2-way communications with other compatible MOON components.
  • Rigid chassis construction to minimize the effects of external vibrations
  • Optimised selection of very high quality electronic components in a symmetrical circuit design.
  • Includes CRM-3 remote control.

With Optional Digital-to-Analog Converter:

  • True 32-bit asynchronous Digital-to-Analog converter.
  • Four digital inputs (S/PDIF x 2, TosLink x 1 & USB x 1) allowing for use with virtually any digital source.
  • Advanced analog signal path using a DC servo circuit and proprietary 18dB/octave analog filter.
  • USB input with galvanic isolation which eliminates all ground current (i.e. no electrical connection) between the USB device (computer,music server, etc) and the 260D, preserving the accuracy of the audio signal.

The following upgrade is available:

  • DAC + Analog – Adds 32-bit DAC option with 4 digital inputs (converts to Neo 260D)
    • £800
