MOON 280D streamer gets updated
MOON’s 280D streaming DAC has been upgraded and updated to increase its already formidable connectivity options.
Released in 2015, the MOON 280D is designed to deliver a high-resolution streaming experience. It can decode native DSD up to DSD256 and PCM up to 32-bit/384kHz, including DXD, as well as sporting a third-order filter in its fully balanced analogue stage. Thanks to the MiND2 streaming module update announced last week, the 280D continues to add to its list of skills.
MiND 2 now features Spotify Connect and AirPlay 2, plus Tidal Masters, Deezer Hi-Fi, and Qobuz Sublime+ music services.
The 280D can be operated by remote control or the MOON MiND Controller app, available in iOS & Android versions. This enables music files to be played from digital services, computers and NAS drives. It is regularly updated by MOON to provide extra features to the existing list.
The most popular recent additions to the app include Tidal’s My Mix, which creates the perfect playlist for you by using an algorithm to comb the Tidal library based on your most recent listening patterns and saved music collection. There is also Spotify Connect, which opens the door to a service enjoyed by 350 million Spotify users. The MOON 280D is Roon Ready and has Bluetooth aptX connectivity.
Extended system control is available via SimLink when connected to other MOON products. Besides seamless connectivity and intuitive operation, the 280D delivers the renowned natural and detailed MOON sound adds the brand.
Available in a black or signature MOON two-tone finish, the 280D is designed and manufactured in Canada and comes with a 10-year warranty and has an RRP of US$3,000 | S$4,990.
