The MOON 280D digital engine decodes native DSD up to DSD256, as well as PCM up to 32-bit/384kHz, including DXD. The fully balanced analogue stage features a third-order filter. It is MQA certified, Roon Ready and has Bluetooth aptX connectivity.

MOON MIND CONTROLLER APP

The 280D can be operated by remote control or MOON’s app, the MOON MiND Controller, which is available in iOS & Android versions. This app is simple to use and allows music files to be played from digital services, computers and NAS drives. It is regularly updated by MOON to provide extra features to the existing list.

A couple of the most popular recent additions to the app are: Tidal’s My Mix, which creates the perfect playlist for a listener by using an algorithm to comb the Tidal library based on their most recent listening patterns and saved music collection. And Spotify Connect.
