The Moon Evolution 600i is a fully differential, dual-mono design claimed to output 125Wpc into 8 ohms, this doubling to 250Wpc into 4 ohms, with the first 5W output in class-A. While that mightn’t seem too high for a solid-state amplifier costing not far shy of $15,000, much can be said for the fact that its output doubles as the impedance is halved. This simply means that it produces lots of current, and therefore should be powerful enough to drive most loudspeakers. Unless your speakers drop well below 4 ohms, or you listen to your music in an auditorium, or you try to reproduce the sound-pressure levels heard at rock concerts, it’s unlikely the 600i will run out of juice.
As tends to be the case even with Simaudio’s less expensive integrated amplifiers, the 600i has lots of connection options and many features. Around back are a fully balanced XLR input and four pairs of single-ended inputs, lined up to either side of center and reflecting the 600i’s dual-mono construction. These inputs are configurable to be home-theater ready, in which case the 600i’s volume control is bypassed by the volume control of an external A/V processor or source component. There is also one line-level output, configurable as fixed or variable, depending on whether it’s used with a recording device, connected to a subwoofer, or if only the 600i’s preamplifier section is used.
