How to get started building your Stereo or Home Theater system

Vol. 11, No. 1 Spring/Summer, 2008



Continuing the concept of trickle-down technology from a company's flagship models, Simaudio has introduced two new, entry level products, the Moon i-1 integrated amplifier and the Moon CD-1 CD player, both at $1500. The problem the company faced was how to introduce these two new products at such a reasonable price without either sacrificing sound/build quality or having them manufactured overseas. they succeeded in this goal by using clever engineering to design these units in a very cost effective way and by committing to much larger than usual (and, therefore, more economical ) parts quantity pricing. The result is two affordable components which not only sound and look great but which are proudly manufactured in North America.

Simaudio Moon i-1 integrated amplifierThe MOON i-1 delivers audiophile performance in an elegant package that has been designed with numerous convenience features. By using much of the technology found in their more expensive integrated amplifiers, the i-1 produces an astonishing level of sonic performance, especially considering its modest price range. Some of its most significant design features include:

  • " An oversized power supply using a custom toroidal transformer design
  • " Rated output of 50 watts/channel into 8 ohms and 100 watts/channel into 4 ohms
  • Six line-level inputs including one front-mounted 1/8” mini-jack for personal media players
  • Headphone jack located on the front panel
  • Remote control operation
  • Use of very high quality electronic parts
  • Rigid chassis construction to minimize the effects of external vibrations

Simaudio Moon CD-1 CD playerOnce again, the Moon CD-1 Incorporates technologies found in the more expensive Simaudio CD players. Thus, the MOON CD-1 uses highly advanced digital and analog circuitry to produce an astounding level of sonic performance for its price range. With features such as a fully customized CD transport mechanism, a large easy-to-read display, and luxurious industrial build quality, the CD-1 will provide for many years of listening pleasure and hassle-free use. Some of its most significant design features include:

  • 8 stages of DC voltage regulation
  • Internal upsampling employing 24-bit/352.8kHz processing
  • Proprietary CD drive system with in-house-developed hardware and software
  • BurrBrown PCM1793 high-resolution 24-bit/192-kHz Digital-to-Analog Converter and 8-times oversampling digital filter
  • A single circuit board for all digital circuitry and another, separate circuit board for all analog audio circuitry, each with its own respective ground plane, to minimize signal path lengths and eliminate any potential for interference or signal degradation
  • Accurate digital clocking system for exceptionally low intrinsic jitter levels
  • Advanced analog signal path using a DC servo circuit and proprietary analog filter
  • Optimized selection of very high quality electronic components

This MOON CD-1 Player is the perfect companion source component for the i-1 Integrated Amplifier.
