Moon by Simaudio 350P Pre-Amplifier

Like all Nēo models, the Nēo 350P borrows aesthetically and technologically from the flagship Evolution Series. When married to one of our Nēo power amplifiers, the combination is a true step up from the integrated amplifiers, providing you with even more of everything: stunning musical realism, dynamics, harmonic richness and accuracy. RETAIL $4,300 with DAC. DEMO $3499 (black) with DAC

$3,499 FLOOR SAMPLE (with DAC)

PHONO +$300

If you are a headphone fanatic, you will appreciate the extremely-well executed, high-end discrete headphone amplifier section.

The Nēo 350P is available with two 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: a computer, DVD/Blu-Ray player or an iPod docking station. If you have a love for spinning your cherished collection of vinyl, a fully-configurable MC/MM phono stage is also available.

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 350P is available in three different finishes: the standard "all black", as well as special order "all silver" or "2-tone" (black & silver)

Nēo 350P Technical Features

· An oversized power supply using 2 toroidal transformers in conjunction with 3 stages of DC
voltage regulation
· 7 line-level inputs (4 Single-ended & 2 balanced) including one front-mounted 1/8" mini-jack
for personal media players
· Discrete headphone amplifier circuit with the 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.
· A full-function monitor loop
· Fixed (single-ended) and Variable (balanced & single-ended) line level outputs
· 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
· A symmetrical circuit design
· Rigid chassis construction to minimize the effects of external vibrations
· Optimized selection of very high quality electronic components
· Designed to be powered up at all times for optimal performance
· Includes CRM-2 remote control.
