By way of celebrating its 40th year in high-end audio, MOON by Simaudio has announced the new Anniversary Edition simpatico duo of 680D streaming DAC and 600i v2 integrated amplifier.
Only 40 systems will be available in the limited run Anniversary Edition components which, in a nod to Simaudio’s early products’ styling from the 1980s, will be offered in a striking new Millesime Red ‘colourway’ finish. The new styling and finish will carry across to the units’ bespoke remote control while MOON will also include a custom set of two AC cables and an XLR and ‘Simlink’ interconnecting cables.
Both the 680D streaming DAC and 600i v2 integrated amplifier will feature an individually serial numbered commemorative 40th Anniversary Edition rose gold plate on its top panel while the units can be coupled via special rose gold MOON bridges. Both units are packaged in road case-style boxes with metal hardware and wooden panelling.
The 680D streaming DAC, which was reviewed on SoundStage! Australia here, is capable of playback resolutions of up to DSD256 and 32-bit/384kHz while being MQA compatible and Roon Ready. The streaming DAC is also multi-room (synchronised) capable and offers nine digital inputs. The 680D will also link with MOON’s MiND 2 (MOON intelligent Network Device) software which allows high-resolution playback from streaming services such as Tidal Masters, Qobuz Sublime+ and Deezer Hi-Fi.
MOON’s 600i v2 integrated amplifier is rated at a powerful 125 watts per channel into 8 ohms and 250 watts into 4 ohms. The “oversized” dual-mono power supply allows Class-A bias of up to 5 watts. Input options are by way of four unbalanced RCA and a single balanced XLR while each of the inputs can be adjusted to bypass the volume control in order to provide a Home Theatre bypass.
Forty sets of the new MOON by Simaudio 40th Anniversary Edition 680D streaming DAC and 600i v2 integrated amplifier will be available for pre-order via the Australian distributor BusiSoft AV.
