MOON 700i Dual-Mono Integrated Amplifier - Front

Detailed Image


Setting a new standard for Integrated Amplifiers!

The MOON 700i is the ultimate Integrated Amplifier. Intended to meet the needs of the most demanding music connoisseurs, it is fully differential dual-mono design, rated at 175 watts/channel into 8 ohms, offering authority, finesse and superb control. Using a variety of new technologies developed since the introduction of the Evolution Series, the MOON 700i provides more sonic transparency and accuracy than previously thought possible. In addition, this integrated it is extremely flexible and exemplifies a luxurious lifestyle.

New technologies include (i) the M-eVOL2 volume control, with a phenomenal 530 steps, allowing for an extremely precise level adjustment just like the MOON P-8 Preamplifier; (ii) New MOON output transistors, specifically designed for use in our amplifiers, provide tighter and more visceral bass performance, as well as unprecedented linearity thoughout the entire frequency spectrum; (iii) An input stage circuit which reduces noise, preserving image focus and integrity like never before.


There is a warmth and naturalness to the soundstage
that must be heard to be believed.

Of course, key features you’d expect in a MOON Evolution Series products are present such as our revolutionary Lynx amplification circuitry, SimLink and M-Lock, just to name a few, as well as both RS-232 and IR ports for custom-install environments. Finally, a plethora of user selectable cosmetic options are available at the time of purchase.

Overseas MOON RS Series

The RS series of MOON audio components benefit from an even higher standard of manufacturing process than the regular MOON versions. All significant differences are contained within the circuitry and construction of each model.

RS versions are built using different materials and parts in certain areas. For example, printed circuit boards are of a higher temperature grade than that of the military specification FR-4 material we normally use; Their traces are gold-plated instead of a tin/lead composite. As well, all capacitors use improved dielectric materials.

MOON RS models meet and/or exceed stricter manufacturing processes as required to pass many international safety standards such as those imposed by the E-U, Japan and South Korea. Cosmetically, the ONLY difference is the RS logo on the front panel.





Significant Design Features:

  • RS-232 port for (i) full unsolicited bidirectional feedback and (ii) firmware updates
  • IR input for external control
  • Lynx circuitry which is a "no overall feedback" design resulting in genuine real-time amplification, a more accurate musical reproduction with respect to tonality, virtually non-existent intermodulation distortion and the elimination of common phase errors resulting from feedback
  • Custom proprietary toroidal transformer design with lower magnetic, electrical and thermal loss, yielding an improved power transfer and lower regulation factor. The result is increased current speed and better dynamics
  • A dual-mono oversized power supply
  • The preamplifier section is mounted on its own dedicated circuit board resulting in lower crosstalk
  • SimLink controller port allows for 2-way communications between other compatible MOON Evolution Series components
  • M-eVOL2 volume control circuit using MDAC’s (operating in a current steering R-2R configuration) which alter the audio signal’s amplitude yielding no sonic degradation of the signal, regardless of the selected volume setting
  • Proprietary MOON Bipolar output transistors with unprecedented gain linearity resulting in improved bass response and even more accurate sonic reproduction
  • M-Lock for “user selectable” maximum volume setting lock-out for each line input
  • “Gain offset” for each individual line input with a ±10dB range
  • Each line input is fully configurable to be “home-theater ready”, where the gain
    section of the 700i is bypassed
  • 530 individual volume steps in 1dB and 0.1dB increments
  • An exceptionally short signal path, yielding a much faster transient response
  • 12 Volt trigger output for remote operation
  • "Class A" output to 5 watts for greater efficiency
  • Four-layer PCB tracings for a dramatically improved signal-to-noise ratio
  • Ultra rigid chassis construction to minimize the effects of external vibrations
  • Accurate matching of the very finest quality electronic components in a symmetrical circuit design
  • Improved reliabilty through the elimination of moving parts
  • Low operating temperature for a longer than normal life expectancy
