The Sim in the Moon
The Moon Evolution Series 740P preamplifier ($9000, seen in photo) offers four stages of the company newly developed M-LoVo (Moon low-voltage) DC regulation circuit, which the company modestly claims to be highly sophisticated and clever. Then again, I think I’m clever, which shows you just how delusional a writer can become when penning his 538th blog of the day. It has an M-eVOL2 volume-control circuit with 530 individual volume steps. a dual-mono oversized power supply, and lots of other features with proprietary names that I’ll let your local dealer explain.
Finally, the Moon Evolution Series 860A power amplifier ($14,000), a replacement for the W7, is a balanced differential dual-mono design that outputs 200Wpc into 8 ohms and doubles down to 800 into 2 ohms. The circuit employs no overall feedback, and boasts Moon's proprietary output transistors, oversized power supply, very short capacitor-free signal path. The amp offers class-A output up to 5W for greater efficiency.
