Founded in 1980 as Sima Electronics, Sima products (as they were known then) were intended for professional use. But it didn’t take long before audiophiles discovered and revered the sonic excellence and value for money these products offered. Soundstage Fine Audio was the company’s first dealership in Ontario, proud to support this fine Canadian company. In 2013 company management and ownership was passed on to the next generation - Simaudio is now owned by a small group of long-time employees who have shaped the image and reputation on the Moon brand. Soundstage Fine Audio is pleased to welcome back Simaudio.

MiND technology streams music from your digital music library to your audio system. Your library can consist of music stored on your computer, on a Network Attached Storage device - or you can simply stream music. The remote or control centre of a MiND - based music streaming system is an iPad, iPhone or Android device in combination with a downloadable free application.

Nēo 310LP Phono Preamplifier  2200
Another new product from Simaudio the finest mid-priced phono preamplifier just got even better. The Nēo 310LP elevates the performance of its highly acclaimed predecessor to another level.

Consequently, this diminishes the need for an external power supply. The result is an even quieter phono preamplifier which means you will experience a blacker background and even more lifelike musical reproduction. Combine this with all the MOON hallmarks: clean, powerful, fast extended bass an open midrange and airy extended high frequencies, mid-priced phono preamplifier performance has just taken a major leap forward. To further these significant enhancements, the Nēo 310LP is housed in a very stylish half width chassis.

Going one step further, you can even chose from two different equalization curves; either the RIAA curve or the IEC curve. Rounding out this package are balanced outputs that allow you to take full advantage of connectivity to a balanced preamplifier or integrated for a significant improvement in noise floor, dynamics and midrange transparency.
