Simaudio Moon 180 MiND streamer and 380D DAC

Though they were both at the CES last year, the MiND 180 and MOON 380D DAC with the MiND option have only recently started shipping. The MiND (Moon Intelligent Network Device) retails for $1,250 and adds basic network and NAS streaming functionality to your system. It can handle up to 24/192 through WiFi, ethernet, AES/EBU and Toslink. Control is handled via a free iOS and Android app that looked very user friendly and easy on the eyes.


The 380D DAC retails for $3,900 (add $600 for variable analog outputs) and can have a MiND built in for another $1,200. Inputs include AES/EBU, S/PDIF, Optical and USB, all accepting up 24/192 data, which is then processed at 32 bits with the ESS SABRE32 Ultra DAC operating in 32-bit "Hyperstream".
