Moon Neo 260D Transport or CD Player (When Optional DAC Board Fitted)

Moon Neo Transport or CD Player (When Optional DAC Board Fitted)

  • Product Code: 260D
  • £2,150.00

The Moon Nēo 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.

Don't let the name fool you - this machine has nothing to do with the original MOON 260D, which was strictly a CD Player, albeit a very good one. The Moon Nēo 260D borrows much of its technology from the more exotic and costlier 650D in the Evolution series.

Want to stream music directly from your computer? The Moon Nēo 260D allows this to come alive for you. How about enjoying your favourite satellite movie channels with the audio fidelity of your music system? Again, the Moon Nēo 260D delivers. Or perhaps listen to your Blu-Ray movies with the same quality as your music collection. The Moon Nēo 260D will satisfy that too. Then again, if you simply want to play your favourite CD's, the Moon Nēo 260D does that with powerful digital technology that extracts every last musical detail from the disc.

The Moon Nēo 260D provides superb flexibility as a result of it being either a CD transport or as an all in one CD player if DAC option selected. Thanks to its 32-bit processing engine, upsampling capabilities, hallmark MOON oversized power supplies and elaborate analogue stages, the Moon Nēo 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.

Of course, key features you'd expect in a MOON Nēo Series product are present such as SimLink™, RS-232 and IR ports for custom-install environments. Finally, the Moon Nēo 260D is available in three different finishes: the standard "all Black", as well as special order "all Silver" or "two-tone" (Black & Silver):

Features:

Proprietary CD drive system mounted on Moons 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;
