BELOW ARE THE USUAL SPECS & SIGNIFICANT DESIGN FEATURES OF THE
MOON ANDROMEDA PLAYER; THE RS LOGO PROVIDES EXTRA ATTENTION TO
DETAIL WITHIN THE MACHINE & of course is in line with EU, ASIAN regulations!!!
The RS series of MOON audio components benefit from an even higher standard
of manufacturing process than the regular MOON versions.
All significant differences are contained within the circuitry and construction of each model.
RS versions are built using different materials and parts in certain areas.
For example, printed circuit boards are of a higher temperature grade than that
of the military specification FR-4 material we normally use;
Their traces are gold-plated instead of a tin/lead composite.
As well, all capacitors use improved dielectric materials.
MOON RS models meet and/or exceed stricter manufacturing processes as required
to pass many international safety standards such as those imposed by the
EU, Japan and South Korea. Cosmetically, the ONLY difference is the RS logo on the front panel.
The MOON Andromeda CD Player is a fully-balanced differential design,
representing the next generation of MOON high-performance audio components.
Using the very finest electronic components in conjunction with an astonishing
24-bit/705.6kHz internal up-sampling circuit and several newly developed proprietary technologies,
the Andromeda brings the Red Book CD standard to previously unattainable performance levels.
Further raising the bar, the MOON Andromeda can be fully integrated into
a custom-install environment via an RS-232 port.
Significant Design Features:
· Internal 24-bit/705.6kHz up-sampling using Burr Brown DF1704 Digital Filter with 16X oversampling
· Four precision matched 24-bit Burr Brown PCM1704U-K "Digital To Analog" converters
· Full unsolicited RS-232 bidirectional feedback
· Digital input for use as a digital-to-analog converter with a music server or external transport
· Custom proprietary toroidal transformer design with lower magnetic, electrical and thermal loss,
yielding an improved power transfer and lower regulation factor. The result is increased current
speed and better dynamics
· Separate digital and analog power supplies housed in an external chassis
· Sim Link controller port for 2-way communications with other compatible MOON components
· Philips CD-Pro 2M transport mechanism mounted on our gel-based Delta suspension
· MOON Alpha Clocking System with PLL synchronization yielding 5 PPM of jitter
· Power supply voltage regulation includes i²DCf (Independent Inductive DC Filtering); There is
one inductor dedicated to each integrated circuit type component (DAC, Op-Amp, etc.) in the
audio circuit’s signal path - 56 stages in all
· Top loading drawer with custom design disc clamping for improved stability and long term reliability
· A proprietary 6db/octave analog filter
· 4-Layer PCB’s with pure copper tracings for a much shorter signal path; This results in
greater sonic accuracy and a dramatically improved signal-to-noise ratio
· Ultra rigid chassis construction to minimize the effects of external vibrations
· Accurate matching of the very finest quality electronic components in a symmetrical circuit design
· Designed to be powered up at all times for optimal performance
· Includes FRM-2 remote control.
