On the face of things, the Moon Ace Neo might seem just your run-of-the-mill amplifier, but via Moon's own MiND2 control app, the Neo Ace will have full access to any music you have stored on your home network, whether it's on a computer, or digital storage device like Innuos. You'll also have access to tens of thousands of worldwide internet radio stations.

aptX Bluetooth provides high quality wireless streaming from your phone or tablet, so whatever you're watching or listening to, the audio can be directed to the Neo Ace to provide better sound quality, or for a larger group to enjoy.

 

As if that wasn't enough, the addition of TIDAL Hi-Fi, Qobuz Sublime+ and Deezer Hi-Fi streaming apps brings vast libraries of high quality online music to your fingertips (with suitable subscription), giving you even more choice as to how you access your favourite music.The Neo Ace provides full MQA decoding for Master Quality tracks available from TIDAL. 

All input and track information is clearly displayed on the OLED display.

The Moon Neo Ace is fully Roon compatible. Roon gathers ALL of your music together in one place, selectable by a single control app - whether it is stored on a PC or laptop, a USB thumb stick plugged into something on your network, part of your streaming services subscription, or stored on your phone or tablet. Search for an artist and any album your network has access to will appear in the search results, removing the need to switch between different control or streaming apps to choose the album you want to listen to. Roon requires an annual or one off lifetime subscription.

aptX Bluetooth provides high quality wireless streaming from your phone or tablet, so whatever you're watching or listening to, the audio can be directed to the Neo Ace to provide better sound quality, or for a larger group to enjoy.

Moon Audio Neo Ace amplifier, Bluetooth amplifier, streaming amplifier, rear panel, back panel, the little audio company,

The rear panel provides plenty of inputs for those wishing to use external sources.

On the analogue side there are three inputs, including a high quality MM phono stage, with any of the other two line level inputs being configurable as an AV bypass for incorporation into a home theatre system. A pair of analogue outputs can be used for additional power amplification or for adding a subwoofer - or two.

A front mounted 3.5mm headphone jack can be used to 'plug and play' personal media players.

Digitally, there's two optical inputs and two coaxial inputs, as well as a USB input.

Internally, everything is neatly laid out, with the large toroidal transformer well away from the digital circuitry. Power, analogue, and digital are isolated on their own individual circuit boards.

 

This also allows easy upgrades, particularly for future developments. As an example, the digital board - which includes the streaming board - can be easily replaced should any major changes happen, like the change from MiND to MiND2 (Moon intelligent Network Device). This modular approach ensures the Neo Ace can keep up with new developments, and avoid having to purchase a new unit to gain the upgrades.

The Neo Ace produces a very capable 50wpc, allowing it to be used with virtually any speaker you're likely to want to connect to it - there's plenty of power even for the less efficient speakers like the 84dB Eclipse TD510Z MkII as used in our review in the link below.

 

The Moon Neo Ace is effectively a neat, all-in-one solution for the discerning audiophile. Just add speakers.
