Proprietary CD drive system mounted on Moon's MQuattro gel-based 4-point floating suspension for vibration damping.
True 32-bit asynchronous Digital-to-Analog converter.

MQA pass-through

The MOON 650D features “MQA pass-through” capability. The MQA encoded data on the disc will be sent through the digital output such that an MQA certified DAC will decode it and give you the full performance that MQA offers.

analog-like rich sound giving listening pleasure

“The 650D's soul is as analog as it is digital.” – Doug Schneider, SoundStage!

amazing detail retrieval giving outstanding sound clarity

“I was struck by the 650D DAC's consistent overall sound: unusually transparent, delicately drawn, and ethereal, with an almost complete absence of digital glare and hardness.”
– Michael Fremer, Stereophile
