The Neo 380D DSD sets a new standard for high-end, high-peformance digital playback. A direct descendent of the Evolution Series 650D, the Neo 380D DSD is not only incredibly flexible, but is also ready for the future. The Neo 380D DSD is actually more dynamic than the human ear can perceive. It will recover and deliver to you musical detail that you previously thought was simply not there. 

Fitted with virtually every kind of digital input you will ever need, the Neo 380D DSD also includes our MiND streaming technology. For those individuals whose music comes purely from digital sources, an optional balanced preamplifier section with its own volume control is offered, allowing for direct connectivity of the Neo 380D DSD to a power amplifier. This effectively minimizes the number of required components to achieve high-performance music playback.

Of course, key features you'd expect in a MOON product are present such as SimLink™, 12V trigger, RS-232 and IR ports for custom-install environments.

Note: Available finishes are dependant on location.

Technical aspects


Fully asynchronous DAC supports DSD up to DSD256 (USB only) and PCM from 44.1kHz to 384kHz (32-bit on USB only)
Digital Audio Signal Processing with M-AJiC32 (MOON Asynchronous Jitter Control in 32-bit mode)
Our own "Dual Jitter Control System" producing a virtually jitter-free digital signal below 1 picosecond for ultra-low distortion, and ensuring compatability with virtually any connected digital device
Eight (8) digital inputs (AES/EBU x 2, S/PDIF x 3, TosLink x 2 and USB x 1) allowing for a connection to virtually any digital source, along with one (1) S/PDIF digital output
MiND (MOON intelligent Network Device) module (the 9th input) via WiFi or Ethernet input for multi-room streaming
MiND module includes TIDAL Music Service.
DSD Streaming via USB input and over ethernet with MiND module.
Optional variable analog outputs (balanced & single-ended) using M-eVOL volume circuit, originally developed for the MOON Evolution series. Accessible using the remote control, this volume operates in 1.0dB increments. M-eVOL is based on a resistive array configuration with no sonic degradation of the audio signal at all volume settings
Highly advanced separate digital and analog power supplies, each using a toroidal transformer and 11 stages of voltage regulation
USB input with galvanic isolation which eleminates all ground current (i.e. no electrical connection) between the USB device (computer, music server, etc.) and the 380D, preserving the accuracy of the audio signal
The entire analog stage is a fully balanced differential circuit for increased dynamic range and headroom,higher resolution, as well as improved signal-to-noise ratio
Advanced analog signal path using a DC servo circuit and proprietary 18dB/octave analog filter
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
4-Layer printed circuit boards with pure copper tracings for a much shorter signal path; This results in greater sonic accuracy and a dramatically improved signal-to-noise ratio
Rigid chassis construction to minimize the effects of external vibrations
Optimized selection of very high quality electronic components in a symmetrical circuit design
Includes CRM-3 remote control.
