24-Bit/352.8kHz Processing, Virtually Nonexistent Jitter, Four Digital Inputs, and Fully Asynchronous 24-Bit/192kHz USB Performance Among Hallmarks of Simaudio MOON 300D v2 DAC
Music lovers familiar with Simaudio MOON components already know the 300D v2 DAC will exceed even the most stringent audiophile expectations. It's a feat achieved by nearly every MOON design, and the 300D v2 is no different. Fully asynchronous 24-bit/192kHz USB performance, exceptional connectivity, internal upsampling, and nearly invisible jitter help distinguish its capabilities. But nothing eclipses its signature sound: Full, rich, dynamic, resolved, and tremendously refined, producing high-end-caliber sense of scale in every range from high to low. Available for a limited time at this discounted price, 300D v2 far outshines a majority of peers in its class as well as many DACs costing even more.

BurrBrown PCM1793 High-Resolution 24-bit/192-kHz DAC
8X Oversampling Digital to 24-bit/352.8k
All Inputs Accept Signals up to 24-bit/192kHz
Single-Ended RCA and Balanced XLR Analog Outputs
New Analog Signal Path with Proprietary Analog Filters
Extremely Rigid Chassis Construction
The Simaudio Moon 300D v2 DAC features an exceptionally versatile external interface that allows for use with a computer (via its USB input) as well as other digital audio source components such as a music server or digital transport though either S/PDIF or optical TosLink connectors. Intended to fulfill the demands of the most discerning music aficionado, the 300D v2 will bring new life to all of your digital audio files, regardless of their storage format.
"While the 300D has great dynamic range and solid, decisive bass performance, what really sets this one apart from its peers in its price range is that level of delicacy that usually does not exist at all here."
– Jeff Dorgay, TONEAudio
With internal upsampling using 24-bit/352.8kHz processing, 300D v2 reproduces digital music ingenuine lifelike fashion. This DAC will accept an input signal ranging from 44.1 to 192kHz, with a bit-depth range from 16 to 24-bits across all inputs. Jitter is virtually non-existent thanks to its highly regarded proprietary digital clocking system. The back panel features four digital inputs (USB, SPDIF x2,and TosLink) and both balanced (XLR) and single-ended (RCA) analog outputs. The balanced outputs provide a significant improvement in noise floor, dynamics and midrange transparency.
"It has all the traditional Simaudio virtues in spades, plus an even-greater-than-normal degree of performance per dollar spent. Even when I'm being exceedingly picky, I can't find fault with this excellent DAC."
– Soundstage GoodSound.com, Great Buy review
Sonically, 300D v2 portrays all of the Simaudio MOON hallmarks: clean, powerful, fast and extended bass combined with an open midrange and airy extended high frequencies. Like other Simaudio MOON series components, 300D v2 includes an IR input, an over-built power supply, and is housed in a extremely rigid custom-made chassis with a 3/8" brushed and anodized front panel. At this discounted price, you'll need to look long and hard to find a better performer. 100% Music Direct Guaranteed.
"The Moon offered a general sense of refinement and resolution improvement… I was consistently impressed with the Moon's resolution, sheen and shine."
