MOON Evolution 760A Power Amplifier

MOON Evolution

The MOON 760A is the first amplifier to be housed in the slim Evolution series chassis, making it unusually compact, yet very heavy.

$8,495.00

A dual-mono, class A/B design with balanced differential circuitry, it exhibits all the sonic hallmarks which MOON products are globally known for: an airy, detailed and open top end, transparent and 3-dimensional in the midrange, robust, powerful and authorative in the bass. In a nutshell, the 760A will amplify music with all the harmonic accuracy, richness and dimensionality of a live musical performance.

A DC-coupled amplifier with our own "zero global feedback" circuit, the 760A has both balanced (XLR) and single-ended (RCA) inputs, but will sound best when driven via its XLR inputs. The heatsinks are crafted from custom made aircraft-grade aluminum extrusions and covered with our thermally transparent paint which will not fade or discolor over time. This amplifier was created as a result of "market driven" demand; the 760A closes the large pricing gap between the Neo and Evolution series for a single-chassis 2-channel amplifier. It is the perfect entry into the Evolution range of MOON products, and when mated with the MOON 740P Preamplifier, becomes a formidable, ultra-high performance amplification package for its price. Significant Design Features:

  • Our “no overall feedback” amplifier design resulting in real- time amplification, a more accurate musical reproduction with respect to tonality, virtually non-existent transient intermodulation distortion and the elimination of common phase errors resulting from feedback.
  • Precision matched proprietary MOON Bipolar output tran- sistors for improved bass response and accurate sonic reproduction.
  • An oversized power supply using a custom proprietary toroidal transformer design.
  • Full unsolicited RS-232 bidirectional feedback and 12 Volt trigger input/output for remote operation.
  • Self-diagnostic system that detects both over-heating and the presence of DC in the input signal.

Specifications

  • A "no overall feedback" design resulting in genuine real-time amplification, a more accurate musical reproduction with respect to tonality, virtually non-existent intermodulation distortion and the elimination of common phase errors resulting from feedback
  • 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
  • A dual-mono oversized power supply
  • Precision matched and fully decoupled proprietary MOON Bipolar output transistors with unprecedented gain linearity resulting in improved bass response and even more accurate sonic reproduction
  • A very short capacitor-free signal path for a faster transient response
  • Self-diagnostic system that detects both over-heating and the presence of DC in the input signal
  • "Class A" output to 5 watts for greater efficiency
  • RS-232 port for (i) full unsolicited bidirectional feedback and (ii) firmware updates
  • 12 Volt trigger input/output for remote operation
  • 4-Layer printed circuit boards with pure copper tracings for a much shorter signal path; This results in greater sonic accuracy and a dramatically improved signal-to-noise ratio
  • Designed to be powered up at all times for optimal performance
  • Low operating temperature for a longer than normal life expectancy
