Exceptional Functionality, Unforgettable Analog Sound: MOON by Simaudio Neo 310LP MM/MC Phono Preamplifier Features Excellent Dynamics, Exceptionally Low Noise Floor, End-User Settings
Stunningly quiet operation, deep-black backgrounds, addictive sound marked by fast, powerful bass, extended highs, and wide-open midrange: The MOON by Simaudio Neo 310LP MM/MC phono preamplifier makes vinyl LP playback an unforgettable experience that will beckon you to spin record after record. Improving on its acclaimed predecessor by several measures, Neo 310LP takes on all comers in its price class with single-ended RCA and balanced XLR outputs, a symmetrical circuit design coupled with accurately matched top-rate components, space-saving half-width chassis, and user-friendly features for resistance loading (five settings), capacitance loading (three settings), and gain level (four settings). Two different equalization curves (RIAA and IEC) and MM/MC compatibility further add to the value of this analog component. Yet the most prized aspect of Neo 310LP remains its shortcut-free, Canadian build and lifelike, rich sound.
Bolstered by a large, fully isolated power supply on a circuit board with a toroidal transformer, Neo 310LP claims a very short signal path for stellar signal-to-noise ratio performance and an extremely low noise floor. Its power-supply voltage regulation includes independent inductive DC filtering, with one inductor for each IC in the circuit path, resulting in giving you extraordinary dynamic range from your recordings. And while Neo 310LP can be driven with an external power supply, its technological upgrades and custom-made MOON electrolytic capacitors mean your need to do is drastically decreased. Indeed, after your hear just a few records played through Neo 310LP, you will understand why it offers class-leading sonics and functionality. Please note that it will likely take up to 250-300 hours of actual playback to sound its best, but it will continue to improve with every LP you spin. Neo 310LP also runs cool and is designed to enjoy a long life expectancy. No wonder it comes with an industry-leading 10-year manufacturer's warranty – as well as our risk-free 100% Money-Back Guarantee. You can't go wrong.
“The standalone 310LP phono stage offers the analog hound both versatility and excellent performance in an elegant package.”
