Simaudio MOON Neo 110LP Phono Pre-Amp
An amazingly detailed piece of solid-state machinery. Make sure nothing is lost from record to amp. For use with both MM and MC cartridges. At a tempting reduction as well! RETAIL: $500.

Derived from technologies found in its big brother, the MOON 310LP, and intended as the next generation of the hugely popular LP3, the 110LP represents another leap forward in affordable phono preamplifier design.
All of the Simaudio sonic characteristics are more present than before; fast, tight, extended bass response, a natural open midrange, and airy extended high frequencies. This is achieved through the combination of an improved power supply and an enhanced circuit layout. Another benefit is an increased input overload margin.
Convenient & Flexible
In a matter of just a few minutes you can easily configure both the resistance and capacitance loading for virtually any moving coil or moving magnet cartridge. As a result, replacing your cartridge will not render the MOON 110LP obsolete. Rounding out the whole package is a rigid all-aluminum chassis with a ¼” brushed & anodized faceplate.
Inductive DC filtering for a significantly lower noise floor.
End-user adjustable impedance loading (100 & 47kΩ).
End-user adjustable capacitance loading (0 & 100pF).
End-user adjustable gain settings for moving magnet (40dB) and moving coil cartridges (60dB).
Accurate matching of military-grade components with ultra-tight tolerances using surface-mount technology for extremely short signal paths.
Two-layer PCB tracings using pure copper for lower impedance characteristics. The advantages include better circuit layouts resulting in a much shorter signal path and a vastly improved signal-to-noise ratio.
