Product Description

Line Circle

Design features:

  • Proprietary CD drive system mounted on our M-Quattro gel-based 4-point floating suspension for vibration damping, allowing ambient and spatial cues in your recordings to come to life like never before.
  • Two (2) digital outputs – S/PDIF and AES/EBU. True 32-bit asynchronous
  • Digital-to-Analog converter. Digital inputs (S/PDIF x 2, TosLink x 1) allowing for a connection to virtually any digital source. Specifications: Frequency response (full range) - 2Hz - 100kHz +0/-3dB
  • THD @ 1kHz, 0dBFS (A-weighted) - 0.005% Intermodulation distortion - 0.005% Dynamic Range - 120dB
  • Signal-to-noise Ratio - 120dB @ full output Channel Separation - 116dB
  • Intrinsic Jitter - 1 picosecond RMS
  • Analog Output @ 0dBFS - 2.0 V Analog output impedance - 75Ω PCM Bit-depth range - 16 - 24 bits PCM sampling frequency rates - 44.1 - 192kHz Shipping weight - 16 lb / 7.5 kg
  • Dimensions (width x height x depth) - 16.9 x 3.4 x 13.1 in 2.9 x 8.6 x 33.3 cm

CD PLAYER AND DAC
A true high-performance, high-end, affordable digital product that meets current and future needs. The MOON 260D CD transport with optional 32-bit DAC is the next evolutionary step in combining high-performance, useful features, CD playback and music streaming all into one chassis.
HIGHLY FLEXIBLE
The MOON 260D provides superb flexibility as a result of it being a CD Transport and a DAC all-in-one. Thanks to its 32-bit processing engine, upsampling capabilities, hallmark MOON oversized power supplies and elaborate analog stages, the 260D‘s sonic performance is without equal in its price category. The DAC section is entirely optional, whereby you can easily add it later on, if not needed right now.
MQA PASS-THROUGH
The MOON 260D CD Transport features “MQA pass-through” capability. The MQA encoded data on the disc will be outputted on the digital output such that an MQA certified DAC will decode it and give you the full performance that MQA offers.
AVAILABLE AS TRANSPORT ONLY
For DAC owners (T version)
SIGNAL TO NOISE RATIO
120dB @ full output
CHANNEL SEPARATION
116dB
