MOON Evolution 870A Power Amplifier

MOON Evolution

The Evolution of amplification... Massive power reserves allow the music to reproduce effortlessly at any volume level.

  • Our “Lynx” Technology which eliminates feedback and results in: Real-time amplification; More accurate musical reproduction with respect to tonality; Non- existent transient intermodulation distortion; The elimination of phase errors resulting from feedback.
  • Output stable to any known speaker impedance.
  • “Class A” power output to 5 watts for greater efficiency.
  • A high damping factor for superior musical dynamics, improved signal speed and refined timbre accuracy.
  • Self-diagnostic system that detects both over-heating and the presence of DC in the input signal.

The MOON 870A Power Amplifier is a balanced differential dual-mono design that effortlessly outputs 300 watts into 8 ohms and 600 watts into 4 ohms. Transparency and soundstage are exceptional, despite this amplifier's high power rating. Ultimately, the 870A will mate seamlessly with any loudspeaker allowing it to reach its full sonic potential, regardless of its load.

Several in-house developed advancements allow the MOON 870A, the most powerful 2-channel Evolution Series amplifier to date, to perform with both accuracy and grain-free character. These include (i) MOON output transistors, specifically designed for use in our amplifiers, providing tighter and more visceral bass performance, as well as unprecedented linearity thoughout the entire frequency spectrum; and (ii) our advanced "zero global feedback" circuit, commonly referred to as Lynx. 

Of course, key features you'd expect in a MOON Evolution Series product are present such as an RS-232 port and 12 Volt triggers for custom-install environments.


Specifications

  • Lynx circuitry which is a "no overall feedback" design resulting in genuine real-time amplification, a more accurate musical reproduction with respect to tonality, virtually non-existent IMD 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 high damping factor for superior musical dynamics, improved signal speed and refined timbre accuracy
  • A very short capacitor-free signal path for a faster transient response
  • Stable to any known speaker impedance
