The MOON 760A is the first amplifier to be housed in the slim Evolution series chassis, making it unusually compact, yet very heavy. A dual-mono, class A/B design with balanced differential circuitry, it exhibits all the sonic hallmarks which MOON products are globally known for: an airy, detailed and open top end, transparent and 3-dimensional in the midrange, robust, powerful and authorative in the bass. In a nutshell, the 760A will amplify music with all the harmonic accuracy, richness and dimensionality of a live musical performance.

A DC-coupled amplifier with our own “zero global feedback” circuit, the 760A has both balanced (XLR) and single-ended (RCA) inputs, but will sound best when driven via its XLR inputs. The heatsinks are crafted from custom made aircraft-grade aluminum extrusions and covered with our thermally transparent paint which will not fade or discolor over time.

This amplifier was created as a result of “market driven” demand; the 760A closes the large pricing gap between the Nēo and Evolution series for a single-chassis 2-channel amplifier. It is the perfect entry into the Evolution range of MOON products, and when mated with the MOON 740P Preamplifier, becomes a formidable, ultra-high performance amplification package for its price. Of course, key features you’d expect in a MOON Evolution Series product are present such as an RS-232 port and 12 Volt triggers for custom-install environments. Finally, a plethora of user selectable cosmetic options are available at the time of purchase.

760A Technical Features

· A “no overall feedback” design resulting in genuine real-time amplification, a more accurate musical reproduction with respect to tonality, virtually non-existent intermodulation distortion and the elimination of common phase errors resulting from feedback · Custom proprietary toroidal transformer design with lower magnetic, electrical and thermal loss, yielding an improved power transfer and lower regulation factor. The result is increased current speed and better dynamics · A dual-mono oversized power supply · Precision matched and fully decoupled proprietary MOON Bipolar output transistors with unprecedented gain linearity resulting in improved bass response and even more accurate sonic reproduction · A very short capacitor-free signal path for a faster transient response · Self-diagnostic system that detects both over-heating and the presence of DC in the input signal · “Class A” output to 5 watts for greater efficiency · RS-232 port for (i) full unsolicited bidirectional feedback and (ii) firmware updates · 12 Volt trigger input/output for remote operation · 4-Layer printed circuit boards with pure copper tracings for a much shorter signal path; This results in greater sonic accuracy and a dramatically improved signal-to-noise ratio · Designed to be powered up at all times for optimal performance · Low operating temperature for a longer than normal life expectancy · Ultra rigid chassis construction to minimize the effects of external vibrations · Accurate matching of the very finest quality electronic components in a symmetrical circuit design.
