Simaudio Moon 700i Integrated Amplifier

ARTICLE INDEX

Introduction

As a Quebec, Canada based company that has spent the last 30 years manufacturing some pretty outstanding gear, Simaudio has (like some other Canadian companies) made its name via its products' performance levels rather than hype and huge marketing spending. The unit reviewed here, the Simaudio Moon 700i Integrated Amplifier maintains that standing. The 700i is the top integrated amplifier model in Simaudio's range and is part of the Moon Evolution series along with other well known components such as their W-7 amp, 750 DAC/Transport and Supernova CD player.
