iQube V2 pre order Head-Fi sale @ Moon Audio!!!


Because of the shipping delay, Pre-Order Sale has been extended to the end of August. Units start arriving the end of 1st week in Aug and more the following week.

For Head Fi members we have an initial pre-order period in which we will discount the sales price with 10%.

The pre-order period will end the 31st of August.



Any iQube V2 ordered and paid during the pre-order period will have a 10% discount. This means that the sales price will be $629 instead of $699 for North and South America. For all orders East and West of the coast lines please contact Qables for your local sales Rep.

Shipping will be a flat rate in the US of $12.50 UPS fully Insured. $25 USPS Global Express for Canada. For other locations please contact us for appropriate charges.

The pre-order discount is only valid for the standard black version. The Limited Edition high gloss white will not be discounted. iQube Version 1 will continue to be available and is $549 with rechargeable batteries, USB charging cable, mini to mini & iPod strap.



For entering the pre order please pay before the 31st the appropriate amount either via Paypal to moon-audio@earthlink.net

We also accept wire transfers but there is a $12 service charge for these.
Units will ship on a first come first served base as of the 31st of July.



Mini USB digital in and 3.5mm analog in
Automatic digital detection and input switching
Several USB sample rates conversion
Separate DAC chip(meaning we will not use the USB chip DAC but we will use a separate more high quality DAC chip)
Tentlabs ultra low jitter special clock design. All clocks (including the Class D clock) will be synchronized for optimum sound performance
Housing design and build will be comparable to version 1, just a little larger.
L: 126mm, W: 70mm, H:23mm
The battery cover will be deleted, only chargeable via mini USB cable (included)
non user-replaceable AAA chargeable batteries used
Volume knob indicator will be added.
Further it will be the same electrical spec as the present iQube since they share the same class D amplifier stage.

The package of the iQube V2 will consist of:
- 1 iQube V2, included chargeable batteries
- 1 new specially for Qables designed Velcro/elastic strap (will fit any size)
- 1 mini USB cable
- 1 box

Size comparison to the V1.
