The Moon MiND 2 (MOON intelligent Network Device) provides the perfect link between your digital music libraries and your Hi-Fi system in the most efficient way. Compromises between sound quality and functionality have all been eliminated. Apple and Android smartphones or tablets become the ideal remote control for a MOON system, providing access to music from your computer(s), NAS, mobile devices and various internet based music services. This is what streaming music is all about! The Moon MiND 2 outputs a digital audio signal (Toslink, SPDIF, AES/EBU) intended as an input to any Digital-to-Analogue converter. It allows for either a very high-performance or an entry-level system to reach their maximum sonic potential. The addition of Bluetooth® aptX™ audio support provides easy connectivity with your wireless devices. The SimLink™ connection allows for control of any SimLink equipped MOON system, enhancing ease of use, without having to use the IR remote. The MiND App can adjust the real volume control of a MOON system rather than using the more common digital attenuation method. This maintains the true fidelity of the music at any volume setting. Finally, there are front panel LED indicators for both the current track’s sampling rate and the active input type – network or bluetooth. The MiND 2 is housed in a stylish half size chassis and is the ultimate portal to an unlimited world of great sounding music; An engaging experience that will keep you listening to music longer and more often.

What is MiND

MiND (MOON intelligent Network Device) is much more than a product. It is a way of organising, listening to, and enjoying your music. MiND technology streams music from your digital music library to your audio system, allowing playback via your amplifier and speakers. Your library can consist of music stored on your computer, on a Network Attached Storage (NAS) device, or you can simply stream music.

TIDAL + MiND

The concept of MiND is simple: the future of music playback lies in the intuitive organiation of a library, allowing for uncomplicated access to large collections of music that are managed with incredible ease-of-use and efficiency. The ‘remote’ or control center of a MiND – based music streaming system is an iPad, iPhone or Android device. A downloadable application exists and requires very basic setup procedures. MiND is designed to allow a person with basic computer knowledge to take full command of a music library.

MOON intelligent Network Device

MiND allows you to organise the presentation of your music by virtually any means: musical genre, artist, album, date, etc. The colorful and graphic visual interface makes use of the most popular devices on the market: Apple’s iPod/iPad/iPhone as well as Android-powered devices. Once your music is organised to your liking, you can play tracks, entire albums, or create playlists. MiND even allows for the use of multiple zones in your home, expanding the enjoyment of this system to virtually every room in your home. You can even access more than one library at a time.
The concept of MiND is simple: the future of music playback lies in the intuitive organization of a library, allowing for uncomplicated access to large collections of music that are managed with incredible ease-of-use and efficiency. Sophisticated technology is required to achieve such simplicity and enjoyment. Other music streaming devices exist in the marketplace, but none currently encompass all of the features, the simple operation, nor the uncompromised sonic performance of MiND The ‘remote’ or control centre of a MiND – based music streaming system is an iPod, iPad, iPhone or an Android-powered device. A downloadable application exists and requires very basic setup procedures. Even without an instruction manual, MiND is designed to allow a person with basic computer knowledge to take full command of a music library in a very short period of time. MiND technology will continue to grow and become incorporated into future MOON products, providing a complete solution for easy, hassle-free and instinctive music playback. The first product to use this technology will be the new MOON 380D DAC, which will be offered with MiND technology as an internal option. In addition, MiND technology will be offered in a stand-alone hardware unit called the MiND. This will allow the necessary streaming from the library, and consequently will output a very high quality digital output signal, which can be sent to a DAC for playback. MiND applications for Apple and Android devices will do more than just manage your music. If the rest of your system is comprised of MOON components equipped with SimLink™ capability, it is possible to control the input selection on a preamplifier or integrated amplifier as well as volume up/down and power on/off. In other words, for owners of MOON systems, the MiND control device can become the remote control for the entire system.
