After many good and loyal services, the Moon 310 LP has been replaced. We were interested to find out how the Canadian company would justify a new product with better capabilities within this price range.
The answer to that is the Moon NEO 310 LP phono preamplifier.
At first sight, there are no dramatic changes. It has the all-aluminium housing with the same size as the Moon 310 LP.
Only the aluminium front panel has been changed for a rounder design.
It has comprehensive connectors, namely one RCA stereo input and a ground plug, an RCA stereo output and a real XLR symmetrical output! It can be connected to the input of a symmetrical preamplifier to deliver its full potential.
It also has the traditional IEC male outlet.
Like with many high-end systems, this phono preamplifierdoes not have a power switch. It must be left on permanently for optimum performance.
The audio circuitry uses military grade components. All the copper connectors have been optimised to deliver a low impedance. It seems that the most obvious changes apply to the power board and more specifically to the filtering and regulation of the stages.
In fact, the manufacturer has announced that the external power supply is less justified for this setup… and therefore no longer offers it.
This phono preamplifier is of course MM and MC compatible. To pair it with most phono cartridges, the board has several jumpers to select the gain, loading and capacitance.
It offers 4 gain levels, 5 impedance levels and 3 capacitance levels.
The RIAA equalisation curve is particularly good and an IEC equalisation curve can be selected, which is a unique feature. Though it is similar to the RIAA curve, it has a low-pass filter that eliminates infrasound below 20 Hz. It acts a bit like a natural subsonic filter.
From the opening bars, the potential of this new Moon NEO 310 LP phono preamp is obvious. It boasts mind-blowing capabilities in terms of transparency and definition.
Like its predecessor, the silences are...silent! Playback is free from any unwanted noise. It delivers the end of notes, reverberations and atmospheres with unprecedented subtleness and legibility.
The dynamics are incredible, giving the music an amazing tempo and punch. The transient cues are incredibly short.
The frequency response is very wide and balanced, it does justice to all the registers.
This phono stage favours neutrality and authenticity. It does not improve and add colour to the music, it just transcribes the music as realistically as possible, with the best musicality!
We naturally embrace this choice that this Moon 310 LP V2 phono preamplifier seems to perfectly fit the term 'Hi-Fi'. Let's not forget that this is precisely what 'High-Fidelity' is, regardless of what others might say…
