The Nēo 340i is the ultimate example of a Neo-class Integrated Amplifier. Combining high power, sonic finesse and superb flexibility, the Nēo 340i will seduce you with its musical authority, and its rich, engaging and lifelike sound quality. RETAIL: $4,700 (Basic); $5,400 (with Gen. 2 DAC); $5,600 (with Gen 3. DAC).

$4,599 FLOOR SAMPLE (black with Gen. 2 DAC)

Neo 340i configurations:

Basic 340iX - $4,700
Plus Gen. 3 DAC - $5,600
Plus DAC & Phono 340iD3PX - $5,800

In addition, the Nēo 340i's flexibility is enhanced by a host of options which can be included at the time of purchase or added later on. A high-performance and very versatile DAC is offered for connectivity to your latest devices such as a computer, DVD or Blu-Ray player, or an iPod docking station. If you have a love for spinning your cherished collection of vinyl records, a fully-configurable MC/MM phono stage is also available. Finally, if you own other high-end gear with balanced connections, the Nēo 340i can be fitted with a set of balanced line inputs.

The Nēo 340i can easily be the centerpiece of your music and entertainment system. Needless to say, the Nēo 340i is constructed to the highest standards that has made MOON products famous around the world.

Of course, key features you'd expect in a MOON Nēo Series product are present such as SimLink™, 12V trigger, RS-232 and IR ports for custom-install environments. Finally, the Nēo 340i is available in three different finishes: the standard "all black", as well as special order "all silver" or "two-tone" (black & silver).

Nēo 340i Technical Features

· A massive power supply using a custom toroidal transformer design
· 5 line-level inputs including a front-mounted 1/8" mini-jack for personal media players
· Headphone output on 1/4" TRS jack located on the front panel
· One audio input which functions as a "pass-through", bypassing the gain stage to accommodate
a component such as a home-theater processor, whose own volume control is used instead.
· Proprietary MOON Bipolar output transistors with unprecedented gain linearity resulting
in improved bass response and even more accurate sonic reproduction
· "Class A" output to 5 watts for greater efficiency
· 12 Volt trigger output for remote operations
· RS-232 port for (i) full unsolicited bidirectional feedback and (ii) firmware updates
· IR input for external control
· SimLink™ controller port for 2-way communications with other compatible MOON components
· Rigid chassis construction to minimize the effects of external vibrations
· Optimized selection of very high quality electronic components
· Low operating temperature for an ultra-long life expectancy
· Includes CRM-2 remote control.
