There’s something spellbinding about the Moon 240i.
It’s Moon’s latest entry-level integrated amplifier (‘entry-level’ being the very thick end of £2000 to a company such as Moon), but it has the performance and looks of something far pricier.

Waits’ characteristically raspy tone is packed with layers of detail, but it’s mixed with more delicacy and subtlety than we usually hear at this level.
