Available as Moon 260DT (transport only - which requires an External DAC), or as Moon 260D which is a fully fledged CD Player.
Simaudio’s proprietary CD drive system is mounted on an M-Quattro gel-based 4-point floating suspension for vibration damping, allowing ambient & spatial cues in your recordings to come to life like never before.
The MOON 260D provides superb flexibility when the optional DAC is added. Thanks to its 32-bit processing engine, upsampling capabilities, hallmark MOON oversized power supplies and elaborate analog stages, the 260D’s sonic performance is without equal in its price category
"I’ve got to hand it to Simaudio. I’ve reviewed this company’s gear for years, and I have never failed to be impressed by the high quality of its products’ construction"
"The Moon 260D continues a tradition of fine Simaudio CD players. Its naturalistic and musical sonic performance is mated with resilient build-quality and ergonomics. As a transport, or with the highly recommended DAC option, the 260D won’t lead you wrong. Fully equipped, it opens up an entire world of digital resolution that will preserve your investment for years to come. Dollar for dollar, a splendid component"

"The Moon 260D delivers tremendous resolution, an incredibly low noise floor and top-notch parts and construction, but most importantly, it offers a natural musical presentation. I thought my days of using a CD player were over—but the 260D CD Transport/DAC has me seriously rethinking my digital-equipment strategy"
