The MOON CD-1 Playersets a new benchmark for entry-level high- performance CD Players; The most affordable MOONdigital player to date, it offers all of the sonic hallmarks that have allowed Simaudio CD players to reach legendary status. Borrowing on technologies found in both our Classic series and Evolution series players, the CD-1 offers an analog, life-like sonic character so convincing that youll feel as ifyoure attending a live musical event, time and time again. With features such as a large and easy-to-read display, an IR input, a RS-232 port, and an industrial build quality, the MOON CD-1will provide for many years of listening pleasure and hassle-free use.The MOON i-1 Integrated Amplifier, like all of its predecessors, offers exceptional sonic performance and genuine ease-of-use. Laden with features for the discerning music lover including a front-mounted mini- jack input for portable music players, an IR input, and an RS-232 port, the MOON i-1bolsters a high-current continuous power output of 50 watts per channel into 8 ohm and 100 watts into 4 ohm. As the center piece of your home-entertainment system, the MOON i-1 offers exceptional value, easily providing more features and better performance than anything else in its class.

A power supply transformer with a low regulation factor assures that power into more difficult speaker loads will be delivered closer to the theoretical ideal. These transformers are significantly more expensive, but are the only way to assure stability and consequently excellent sound quality under all conditions. A high damping factor ensures an excellent grip on woofer cone motion, which reduces overshoot, and unwanted oscillations. Also greatly improving immunity to variations in quality and length of speaker cables used. A great deal more energy from an integrated amplifier is required to reproduce musical information below 400Hz. Amplifiers with a low damping factor (and higher output impedance) have to work harder to produce this energy. The majority of integrated amplifiers possess a damping factor in the range well below 100 (red), as shown above. Simaudio integrated amplifiers operate with very low output impedances (typically <0.04 ohms), therefore yielding a damping factor greater than 200 in the all-important sub-400Hz range. Significantly better dynamics result in a much more powerful and authoritative bottom-end... The immense energy of a full symphony orchestra comes to life in your own home.
