Simaudio have launched the Moon Neo MiND (MOON intelligent Network Device) which they say “provides the perfect link between your digital music libraries and your Hifi system in the most efficient way”.

They go on to say: “Compromises between sound quality and functionality have all been eliminated. Apple and Android smartphones or tablets become the ideal remote control for a MOON system, providing access to music from your computer(s), NAS, mobile devices and various internet based music services. This is what streaming music is all about!”

The Neo MiND outputs a digital audio signal (Toslink, SPDIF, AES/EBU) intended as an input to any Digital-to-Analog converter. The addition of Bluetooth® aptX™ audio support provides easy connectivity with your wireless devices. The SimLink™ connection allows for control of any SimLink equipped MOON system, without having to use the IR remote. The MiND App can adjust the real volume control of a MOON system rather than using the more common digital attenuation method. Finally, there are front panel LED indicators for both the current track’s sampling rate and the active input type – network or bluetooth. The Neo MiND is housed in a half size chassis.

  Independant control for each zone with SimLink™ equipped MOON Preamplifier or Integrated Amplifier
  Note: The Wi-Fi protocol doesn’t support hi-resolution audio (anything higher than CD format’s 16-bit depth). As a result, you may encounter issues when attempting to wirelessly stream hi-res audio. This not an issue caused by your MiND hardware or MiND app.
