MOON Evolution Series 740P Preamplifier (2-Tone)

  • Full unsolicited RS-232 bidirectional feedback
  • 530 individual volume steps in 1dB and 0.1dB increments
  • SimLink controller port for 2-way communications with other compatible MOON components
  • Proprietary toroidal transformer design with lower magnetic, electrical and thermal loss
  • Each line input is fully configurable to be home theater-ready

Intended for those seeking high-performance in an elegant, stylish yet uncomplicated package, the MOON 740P preamplifier leaves your music uncolored and free of any grain and noise. The purity of the signal remains uncompromised, allowing the music to be heard as was intended from day it was recorded.

The 740P uses a dual-mono fully balanced differential design that's derived from the MOON 850P reference. This next generation Evolution series preamp incorporates various in-house developed technologies that help create a level of performance that can be best described as astounding (see "Signifigant design features" below).

Further raising the bar, as is the case with all Evolution series models, the 740P can be fully integrated into a custom installation environment via an RS-232 port. There are also many cosmetic options available at the time of purchase.

Significant design features:

  • Full unsolicited RS-232 bidirectional feedback
  • A dual-mono oversized power supply using 2 toroidal transformers in conjunction with 5 stages of DC voltage regulation and extensive choke filtering
  • 4 stages of MOON's newly developed M-LoVo (MOON Low Voltage) DC regulation circuit, a highly sophisticated circuit made up of a clever combination of IC’s and discrete parts that is virtually free of noise, yielding exceptionally fast, precise, and stable DC voltage; the result is a power supply with a virtually unmeasureable noise floor
  • SimLink controller port for 2-way communications with other compatible MOON components
  • M-eVOL2 volume control circuit using MDAC's (operating in a current steering R-2R configuration) which alter the audio signal's amplitude yielding no sonic degradation of the signal, regardless of the selected volume setting
  • 530 individual volume steps in 1dB and 0.1dB increments
  • M-Lock for user-selectable maximum volume setting lock-out for each line input
  • Power supply voltage regulation includes i-DCf (Independent Inductive DC Filtering); There is one inductor dedicated to each integrated circuit type component (DAC, Op-Amp, etc.) in the audio circuit's signal path - 24 stages in all
  • "Gain offse" for each individual line input with a 10dB range
  • Each line input is fully configurable to be 'home-theater ready', where the gain section of the 740P is bypassed
  • 4-Layer PCB's with pure copper tracings for a much shorter signal path; This results in greater sonic accuracy and a dramatically improved signal-to-noise ratio
  • 12 Volt trigger output for remote operation
  • 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
  • Improved reliabilty through the elimination of moving parts
  • Includes FRM-3 all-aluminum back-lit remote control.

The MOON Evolution Series represents the pinnacle of luxury, performance and ease-of-use. Using a cost-no-object design approach yielding several new proprietary technologies, these products faithfully bring to life the true emotion of music. MOON's relentless quest for perfection has resulted in audio components that effortlessly transcend time and space, allowing you to feel the mesmerizing experience of a live musical performance, over and over again.
