Thanks to the latest firmware updates, Moon's streaming products now support Spotify Connect, following their recent compatibility with AirPlay 2.

Every Moon component based on the company's MiND2 (Moon Intelligent Network Device) streaming module is receiving the latest firmware update – the ACE all-in-one music system, MiND 2 network player, 390 network player/preamplifier and the 280D, 680D and 780D v2 streaming DACs. 

Spotify Connect support means owners who subscribe to Spotify Premium or Spotify Family can stream the service's catalogue to their Moon product directly from the Spotify app. Fingers crossed that they will also support the CD-quality Spotify HiFi tier coming later this year.

AirPlay 2, meanwhile, offers direct streaming between the Moon and an Apple iOS device. The two new features are two of the biggest in the streaming world, opening doors to super-easy and intuitive networked playback for Spotify subscribers and Apple users.

How to add a streamer to your hi-fi system

Becky is the managing editor of What Hi-Fi? and, since her recent move to Melbourne, also the editor of Australian Hi-Fi magazine. During her eight years in the hi-fi industry, she has been fortunate enough to travel the world to report on the biggest and most exciting brands in hi-fi and consumer tech (and has had the jetlag and hangovers to remember them by). In her spare time, Becky can often be found running, watching Liverpool FC and horror movies, and hunting for gluten-free cake.
