The 888 from MOON by Sim Audio isn’t just another monoblock amplifier. It’s a statement. It is a concept taken to the extreme in every detail. The impressive power output is actually very modestly rated at a “mere” 1.2hp (888 watts). This is backed by a gargantuan power supply that coupled with an 8kW capacity output section on enormous cast-aluminum heatsinks can drive any load with complete effortlessness.
The MOON 888 can “track” the musical signal so accurately that it simply does not impart any character of its own. For the first time the awesome dynamics of real live music are possible in the playback chain.
Design features include massive single-piece cast aluminum heat sinks, manufactured using the same processes as high-performance racing engines. The heat sinks can dissipate energy far better than typical designs. Further CNC machining assures a fit & finish within 1/1,000”. Audio circuitry is integrated within the complex monolithic heat sink thereby dampening vibration down to the vanishing point. The transistors’ output section boasts a prodigious 8kW total rating, assuring the amplifier will always operates far below its capacity. Over 350,000μF of power supply energy storage and massive transformers for extreme power delivery. And, the finest rhodium-plated heavy-duty speaker output connectors are used.
