MOON North Collection 681 Network Player / DAC - Two Tone

A beautiful 4.3’’ OLED screen displays cover art with song and artist names, while the BRM-1 remote control and MOONLink communication make it a pleasure to operate and integrate within a complete MOON system. MHV (MOON Hybrid Volume) technology employs a clever combination of digital attenuation and analogue gain levels to allow for high-performance volume control when the 681 is not connected to a MOON preamplifier without compromising the audio signal in the digital domain.

At the heart of the 681 is the MDE1, a re-clocking FPGA with an innovative DAC implementation to convert audio with industry-leading accuracy. Equipped with a MiND2 network player, the 681 accesses music from TIDAL, Qobuz, Deezer, and HighResAudio, is compatible with, Bluetooth, AirPlay 2, Spotify Connect, and TIDAL Connect, is Roon Ready, decodes all two-channel digital music formats—including MQA and DSD—and can synchronise with other MiND2 products to create a whole home experience!

Designed to accompany the 641, the 681 transforms any digital audio source into a revealing audio signal to complement any amplifier. The 681 and 641 are archetypes of the streaming DAC and integrated amplifier, and proof of the superlative mastery of MOON engineering.
