Canadian premium hi-fi manufacturer, Simaudio, is renowned for its MOON range, and with the launch of its new MiND2 streaming platform, delivers a world of high performance streaming.
The MiND2 (MOON intelligent Network Device) streaming platform is an intuitive way of organizing, streaming and listening to music. MiND2 allows the playback of the full spectrum of file formats, including DSD and MQA (via local and TIDAL Master files).
MiND 2 is the second generation of the MOON intelligent Network Device and is controlled by MOON’s proprietary app. MiND 2 delivers high-fidelity music streaming and allows control of a MOON hi-fi system, for ultimate ease of use.
