  • The Nēo ACE is an all-in-one music player featuring an integrated amplifier and streaming DAC music player, the only other thing you’ll need is a pair of speakers.
    The ACE features Moon’s MiND control system - which provides a full graphic interface - and allows access to a digital music library or streaming service and is designed to be the heart and soul of a high-performance audio set-up.

    The ACE also features an all-new advanced setup software and a high resolution DAC (DSD decoding up to DSD256 and 32bit/384kHz PCM). The ACE also features a moving magnet phono preamplifier and has RS-232 and IR ports for use in custom-install environments.

    There are three line-level inputs, including a front-mounted 1/8” mini-jack for personal media players as well as a headphone output on 1/4” TRS jack located on the front panel. There’s a total of eight digital inputs, including USB for hi-res audio, 2 SPDIF, 2 coax, aptX Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and Ethernet inputs. The analogue inputs are configurable to “pass-through” mode, which bypasses the gain stage to accommodate components like a home-theatre processor.
