Simaudio has given the Moon Neo 350P preamplifier a visual beauty that was not part of the original Moon 350P. The qualities of manufacture, visual appearance, and tactile feel of my review sample were all excellent. That same excellence extended to its formidable sound -- the Neo 350P had a neutral transparency that presented each recording played through it without embellishment. I never felt that it was holding back the music because of its own limitations -- it let all details flow through. The width and depth of its soundstage were excellent. The Simaudio Moon Neo 350P’s sound, connectivity options, and ten-year warranty make it difficult to find another preamplifier in its price range that is as easy to recommend.
