September 5, 2013 - The Nēo 260D provides superb flexibility as a result of it being a CD Transport and a DAC all-in-one. Thanks to its 32-bit processing engine, upsampling capabilities, hallmark MOON oversized power supplies and elaborate analog stages, the Nēo 260D's sonic performance is without equal in its price category. The DAC section, entirely optional, can easily be added later on.
