The MOON 280D is a high performance fully asynchronous DSD 256 / 32-bit DAC with versatility, including Bluetooth and the optional MiND 2 module. Digital to analogue converters (DACs) and network players (streamers) optimally transform digital audio files from a computer, music service or online radio. The majority of models can be controlled remotely via a mobile application, iOS or Android. Most of them offer complete control of a MOON system. The quality of conversion is critical in the sound result, because it is this signal that will be amplified and reproduced by the speakers. Our digital products stand out for their quality of conversion that delivers analog sound as accurate as it is enjoyable.

MiND 2 streaming module

MiND 2 (MOON intelligent Network Device) is a fabulous way of streaming and listening to your music. MiND 2 is Roon Ready and allows the playback of all the most common file formats, including DSD, and MQA file formats (via local files and TIDAL Master files).

A World of Music

Imagine a world of music right at your fingertips. The MOON 280D makes this a reality. Simply launch your favorite music services app on your smart device and pair it to the MOON 280D using Bluetooth technology. Then sit back and enjoy the music.

Lifelike Transparency

The extraordinary digital engine within the MOON 280D decodes native DSD up to DSD256, as well as PCM up to 32-bit/384kHz, including DXD. The fully balanced analog stage features an exceptional 3rd order filter for lifelike transparency. The result is a level of fidelity that creates an emotional connection to your music.
