Up for sale is a Simaudio MOON CP-8 Flagship Preamplifier/Processor and an HDS-8 HDMI Switcher.
The MOON CP-8 is a true flagship Surround Preamplifier / Processor. The CP-8 was designed with sound quality first and foremost in mind, and produces a previously unimaginable level of sonic purity and realism.
The CP-8 represents 2 years of research and development by people who are passionate about, and inspired by, both film and music. The ultimate goal was to fully redefine the home-theater experience. The results can best be described as a flawless nerve center for the most sophisticated and high-performance audio/video systems regardless of the source material. Every experience will leave you completely breathless.
Outstanding features include: Exceptional digital-to-analog and analog-to-digital converters in conjunction with a heavily regulated and oversized power supply which yields unprecedented soundtrack reproduction that the competition's offerings can only hint at.
Other features include an ultra rigid chassis and a very carefully laid out circuit design, which created the finest sounding multi-channel processor available today.
When used solely as a 2-channel preamplifier for either digital or analog sources, amazing imaging and a lifelike soundstage prevail.
The CP-8 utilizes the finest available video processing hardware and software, located on circuit boards independent of audio processing, with a dedicated power supply, resulting in the most realistic picture yet; color accuracy that can be best described as a truly organic experience.
The CP-8 also comes with an HDS-8 HDMI Switcher. The HDS-8 is the perfect companion for the CP-8 in applications where there are numerous video source components utilizing HDMI connectivity. It provides 5 inputs and remote control operation, and yields absolutely no measurable or visible signal loss.
