Moon 791 Streaming DAC Preamplifier

The MOON 791 is much more than a preamp. It combines a high-end phono stage and streaming DAC in a state-of-the-art analog preamplifier.  


Moon 791 is awarded Reviewer's Choice by Soundstage

"The feature-rich Moon 791 makes sense today because hi-rez music streaming is prevalent among audiophiles, DAC and digital-interface technologies have matured, and vinyl seems to be here to stay. Simaudio took the high-performance, low-noise, no-distortion 740P, tweaked its line-level performance to perfection, and built on it, adding a top-tier phono stage, DAC section, and streaming module, as well as a host of digital wired and wireless connections. These added capabilities mustn’t be taken lightly nor assumed to be easily surpassed. In particular, don’t expect to find a standalone phono stage or DAC, at any price, that will outperform those built into the 791."

"what I also noticed was how pure the sound was, mostly in the highs, to a lesser degree in the midrange. Cockburn’s guitar had all the sparkle I’ve come to expect to hear and none of the brittleness I’ve heard with some other systems. I hesitate to use the word smooth to describe what I was hearing because to some audiophiles that implies a high-frequency rolloff or a glossing over of details—there was none of that. Smooth, though, aptly describes the dazzling sense of clarity and cleanliness the 791 imparted to this music."
