MOON Neo MiND-2 Network Streamer
The perfect link between your digital music and your Hi-Fi system.
Moon (by Sim Audio) introduced their first digital streamer many years ago, with their Moon MiND (Moon Intelligent Network Device). It proved to be a stunning, stable player, with a logical interface people grew to love.
It was replaced and re-vamped with the release of their "Neo" range of Amplifier and CD players a few years back, again offering superb improvements and flexibility.
What is now effectively their third generation, Moon MiND now supports MQA and DSD* along with Tidal Masters support, Deezer HiFi, Sublime Plus.
Like their new 390 pre/DAC we expect it to be fully ROON compliant (sometime in the future).
The Neo 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 Neo 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.
