Fully balanced differential digital and analog circuitry in a dual-mono design
Femto second clock (vs. Pico second clock where 1 pico-second = 1000 femto-seconds): The result is much lower jitter – 150 femto-seconds (less than 1/6 of a pico-second) – and therefore lower distortion.
There is one DAC chip per channel running in mono mode for a true dual-mono design; each of these two DAC chips are programmed to process a single channel for the best possible sonic performance, whereby each chip contains 16 individual DAC circuits which provides for 8 differential mode DAC circuits.
On-board programmable software for customization of the end-user interface.
MHP (MOON Hybrid Power) is a “High Performance Universal (Power Supply” using conductive polymer capacitors, high speed digital switching and analog linear regulators post stages (non-switch mode) for ultra stable and exceptionally low noise DC output
2 stages of our M-LoVo (MOON Low Voltage) DC regulation circuit; a highly sophisticated circuit that is virtually free of noise, yielding an exceptionally fast, precise, and stable DC voltage. The result is a power supply with a virtually unmeasureable noise floor
Power supply voltage regulation includes i²DCf (Independent Inductive DC Filtering); There is one inductor dedicated to each integrated circuit type component (DAC, Op-Amp, etc.) in the audio circuit’s signal path; 4 stages in all
SimLink™ controller port for 2-way communications with other compatible MOON components
IR input for external control
RS-232 port for (i) full unsolicited bidirectional feedback and (ii) firmware updates
A very short capacitor-free signal path using a DC servo circuit and proprietary 18dB/octave analog filter
Fully compatible with the 820S external power supply.
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
Ultra rigid chassis construction to minimize the effects of external vibrations
Accurate matching of the very finest quality electronic components in a symmetrical circuit design
Includes the FRM-3 remote control
