Ace In The Hole
With extraordinary sound reproduction, the ACE will act as the heart and soul of a high-performance audio set-up. Accentuated by the world-renowned Moon sonic signature – visceral tight bass, transparent midrange, precise natural highs – along with lifelike sound, the ACE will astonish.
Priced at £2700 and distributed in the UK by Renaissance Audio, the ACE is both intuitive and easy to use. Featuring all-new advanced set-up software, this is the most configurable and customisable Moon product ever offered. Bridging digital and analogue audio at a price-to-performance ratio that is impossible to beat, the ACE includes a high-resolution DAC (DSD decoding up to DSD256 and 32- bit/384kHz PCM). The ACE also features a moving magnet phono preamplifier and has RS-232 and IR ports for use in custom-install environments.
