SIMAUDIO’S LUNAR QUALITY NEW NETWORK PLAYER
Look in any direction, and someone is showing a network player at this week's High End Show in Munich.
Simaudio’s Moon 390 model stands out from its rivals thanks to its mountain load of modes and function.
While it is a svelte, up-to-the-minute network player, this model is a master of all trades and is a true digital era crossover product.
Explore the Moon 390 a little closer, and it reveals its multi-talents: its sleek chassis houses a DAC, preamplifier, headphone amplifier and very desirably, a kosher phono stage.
Add advanced networking features to the package, and clearly, the Moon 390 can be all things to all music lovers.
The 390 says Simaudio, combines the feature set of the older 350P and 380D models. But it adds a bundle of new ones.
The 390 can be viewed as an all-in-one model sans a power amplifier.
The new model is the brand's first to benefit from MiND 2 streamer technology. The MiND streaming module allows the playback of all the most common file formats including DSD (up to DSD256) and is MQA certified. The 390 is Roon Ready and carries Bluetooth aptX connectivity.
MiND 2 boasts a USB host port that allows access to music on USB thumb drives. MiND will also stream any digital or analogue input of the 390 to other MiND zones on the same network.
The Moon 390 is all about high-res streaming via music services such as Tidal Masters, Qobuz Sublime+ and Deezer Hi-Fi.
The onboard DAC supports PCM (up to 32-bit/384kHz) and DSD (up to DSD256).
The Moon 390’s phono stage designed for moving coil and moving magnet cartridges can be configured via a menu that displays on its OLED screen.
Simaudio's Moon 390 will sell for $7,999 RRP.
