The MOON 300D v.2 Digital-to-Analog Converter features an exceptionally versatile external interface that allows for use with a computer, via its USB-B input, as well as other digital audio source components such as a music server, digital transport, etc. though either S/PDIF or optical TosLink connectors. Intended to fulfill the demands of the discerning music aficionado, the 300D v.2 will bring new life to all of your digital audio files, regardless of their storage format.

With internal upsampling using 24-bit/352.8kHz processing, the 300D v.2 will reproduce your digital music in a genuine life-like 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 a virtual non-issue thanks to our highly regarded proprietary digital clocking system. The back panel features a total of 4 digital inputs (USB, SPDIF x 2,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. 

Sonically, it portrays all of the MOON hallmarks: clean, powerful, fast and extended bass combined with an open midrange and airy extended high frequencies. Like other MOON series components, the MOON 300D v.2 includes an IR input.
