A big step forward has been taken! We're thrilled to announce four new releases today.


Following planar VENUS, here comes planar magnetic headphone, PARA! It features high-resolution, large soundstage, easy to drive, good extension, and smooth timbre. PARA uses an ultra-large 100mm-diameter diaphragm, utilizes Full Drive Technology, adopts Secondary Diaphragm Stress Balance Technology, and combines an integrated Driver-cavity Structure! It's up at US$299!


It's MOONDROP's dream to develop a portable CD player with excellent quality! Today, we're thrilled that we made it come true and happy to announce DISCDREAM at a US$199 price tag! It uses Cirrus Logic's flagship DAC chip for HiFi level quality!


We're glad to update our flagship lineup and bring DARK SABER. It uses 2DD+8BA driver configuration and adopts H.O.D.D.D.U.S. module for extraordinary bass. The handcrafted faceplate generates modern technology aesthetics. It's coming at US$799.99 now!


Are you looking for an upgrade cable with mic function? We heard and introduced FREE DSP at US$29.99. It's a mixed-stranded Litz cable with oxygen-free copper and silver plating, featuring DSP and pickup microphone without lowering sound quality.

Thanks for reading, and for your support. Any questions are welcome to email!

Toslink out with

Pity that this LO is not hybrid with toslink out (just like google chromecast audio had). Lost opportunity.
Yes! That would be perfect. I miss that with modern Macs! Macs for a long time had a hybrid 3.5mm headphone out / mini-TOSLink, but they ditched that a few years ago, sadly.

But the toslink out would bypass the player's onboard DAC. That kind of defeats the purpose of including the Cirrus Logic flagship DAC.
But it would make it a simple transport with the ability to be decoded by a presumably even higher end DAC, no?

Exactly that.
Little cute transport for home use, which can be also taken away and used with headphones if that's your thing.

Ps. With optical out I would be very interested in trying one.
