MOON P 5.3 Stereo Preamplifier
Introduction
Your MOON P5.3 Stereo Preamplifier incorporates many significant design features to achieve its “world class” level of
performance. This is an abbreviated list of the more important features:
An oversized power supply using 2 toroidal transformers in conjunction with 3 stages of DC voltage regulation and
extensive choke filtering
An extremely short capacitor-free signal path measuring only 10 inches in length, from input RCA connectors to
output binding posts, for a faster transient response.
M-eVOL volume control circuit based on a resistive array configuration, resulting in no sonic degradation of the audio
signal regardless of the selected volume setting
Power supply voltage regulation includes i2DCf (Independent Inductive DC Filtering); 1 inductor for each and every IC
in the audio circuit’s signal path – 14 stages in all.
IR input for external control.
12 Volt Trigger output for remote operations.
One single-ended audio input, of your choice, which functions as a “pass-through”, bypassing the gain stage to
accommodate a component such as a home-theater processor, whose own volume control is used instead.
Optional end-user configurable phono section for both moving coil and moving magnet cartridges.
Extremely rigid chassis construction to minimize the effects of external vibrations.
A symmetrical circuit design with accurate matching of the very finest high quality electronic components.
Four-layer PCB tracings; The advantages include better ground and power supply circuit layouts resulting in a much
shorter signal path and dramatically improved signal-to-noise ratio.
Designed to be powered up at all times for optimal performance.
Low operating temperature for a longer than normal life expectancy.
Installation & Placement
The MOON P5.3 requires reasonable ventilation to maintain an optimum and consistent operating temperature. As a result,
it should be placed in a location with empty space around it for proper heat dissipation. As well, it should be placed on a solid
level surface. You should avoid placing it near a heat source or inside a closed cabinet that is not well ventilated as this could
compromise this component’s performance and reliability. The P5.3 uses toroidal transformers; even though they are well
shielded, you should not place the Stereo Preamplifier too close to source components sensitive to EMI, such as turntables
and phono preamplifiers. You should never place another component directly on top of this Stereo Preamplifier.
Once you’ve decided on a location for the P5.3, you should install the four (4) pointed screw-on tips into the four (4)
cylindrical legs of the chassis. These tips will easily scratch most surfaces, therefore it’s advisable to follow these instructions:
Place your P5.3 on a soft surface (i.e. carpet) and carefully turn it so that it rests on its side. Screw one tip into each of the
four legs. Carefully move the chassis to it’s pre-determined location. In the event that the surface you have chosen isn’t
perfectly level, each of the four (4) tips on your P5.3 are height adjustable; Included with these tips is a small metal rod,
intended for final adjustments (if necessary) by simply threading it through the tiny hole of each of these tips and then gently
turning the tip. These adjustable screw-on tips also provide mechanical grounding of the chassis.

MOON P 5.3 Stereo Preamplifier
Front Panel Controls
Figure 1: MOON P5.3 Front panel
The front panel will look similar to Figure 1 (above). The large display window indicates the relative gain setting (ranging
from ‘0’ through ‘50’) for both the left and right channels. As well, whenever you change the selected input source, it’s
number will appear in the window for 3 seconds before reverting back to the gain setting. Immediately to the right of the
display window is a button labeled “Display” which allows you to turn the digital display on and off.
The “Standby/On” button disengages the input section from the rest of the P5.3’s circuitry and turns off the digital display.
However, when in “Standby” mode all audio circuitry remains powered up to help maintain optimal performance. When
switching back from “Standby” to the “on” mode, both the ‘input’ and gain level settings will be memorized from the previous
listening session. The blue pilot LED will not be illuminated when the P5.3 is in “Stand by” mode.
The “Input +” and “Input -” buttons allow you to choose which input source you wish to listen to. The MOON P5.3 Stereo
Preamplifier has five (5) inputs; The first input is fully-balanced and uses XLR connectors labeled A1. The next four (4) inputs
are single-ended and use RCA connectors labeled A2, A3, A4 and A5. Assuming that you’re currently listening to a source
component connected to input A1, the “+” allows to sequentially scroll forward through the available inputs from A2 to A5.
The “-” button allows you to sequentially scroll backwards from A5 to A2. Holding down either the “+” or “-“ button will allow
only a single change of the selected input. You must press the button again to select the next or previous input.
Any one of the five inputs can be configured as a ‘pass-through’ which bypasses the P5.3’s gain control section, allowing you
to control the gain setting via the connected source component’s own volume control – a home theater processor for example.
In ‘pass-through’ mode, adjusting the volume on the P5.3 will have no effect whatsoever when the ‘pass-through’ input is
selected. By pressing and holding the “mute” button for approximately 2 seconds, the selected input will go into ‘passthrough’ mode; to terminate the ‘pass-through’ mode, simply repeat the procedure.
Only one input can be setup for ‘pass-through’ mode. For example, when you’re listening to the source component connected
to the A3 input and the A5 input is set as a ‘pass-through’ mode, pressing and holding the mute button will only perform the
mute function. You must to scroll to and deactivate the ‘pass-through’ mode on A5, scroll to the A3 input, then press and
hold the mute to put it into ‘pass-through’ mode. The factory default is no inputs are set to ‘pass-through’ mode. Finally,
powering down the P5.3 via the rear panel rocker switch will reset the configured ‘pass through’ input back to the factory
default ‘normal’ mode.

(continued)
Pressing the “Mute” button reduces the current volume to “0”. Pressing the “Mute” button a second time will reinstate the
volume back to its previous level.
The rotary “volume” control determines the gain setting, which ranges from ‘0.0dB’ (no output) to ’50.0dB’ (full output). This
control does not function like a typical volume: When you rotate the dial, either clockwise to raise the volume or counterclockwise to lower the volume, you are actually engaging a precision optical encoder which selects, via a relay network, very
high quality metal-film resistors that the audio signal passes through. The result is a proprietary gain circuit, called M-eVOL,
that doesn’t degrade the audio signal regardless of the setting, unlike all potentiometer based circuits. Futhermore, since
there are no actual moving parts, this technology has a minimum life expectancy of one million rotations.
The range of fifty (50) unique gain settings is based on neither a linear nor logarithmic scale. Instead, we decided on
relatively small variations for each of the lower position settings from ‘1’ to ‘35’. The variations are somewhat larger from
positions ‘36’ through ‘50’. For the best possible performance, it is recommended that you don’t turn the rotary control too
quickly as some gain settings will be skipped and extra rotations will be required to reach position ‘50’.
Note: To change the balance between the left and right channels, please refer to the section “Remote Control Operation”.

Optional Phono Section
The MOON P5.3 Stereo Preamplifier features an optional phono section that may be installed only at an authorized dealer or
at the Simaudio factory.

MOON P5.3 Stereo Preamplifier
Optional Phono Section
(Cont’d)
Internal Settings
There are three (3) types of settings available on the optional phono section of the MOON P5.3 Preamplifier; Capacitance
loading, Resistance loading, and Gain level. Each setting is adjustable through the use of jumpers. For each type of setting,
there are 2 banks of jumpers – one each for the left and right channels. This is the result of the phono section’s genuine
mirror-image circuit design which yields exceptional stereo separation.
Always disconnect all audio connections and the AC power cord of your MOON P5.3 Preamplifier prior to changing any of the
following input settings.
There are a total of six (6) screws, located on the top of the chassis, that you must remove using the included allen-key. Once
these screws are removed, carefully lift off the chassis cover. Once the cover is removed, you are ready to make all of the
necessary internal adjustments to the P5.3 phono module to achieve optimal sonic performance.
Resistance Loading:
There are two (2) different settings available for setting the resistive load; 100Ω and 47kΩ which are represented by jumper
sockets R9 for the left channel and jumper socket R24 for the right channel (refer to figure 2 – section labelled “LOADING”).
The factory default setting is 47kΩ, therefore both jumpers will be found in each of the two left most sockets.
In the event that you’re using a moving magnet (MM) cartridge, it is recommended that you leave the jumpers inserted in the
factory default setting of 47kΩ. Conversely, if you’re using a moving coil (MC) cartridge, you should use the 100Ω jumper
settings by simply inserting the supplied jumpers into each of the two right-most sockets of jumpers R9 and R24.
Capacitance Loading:
There are two (2) different settings available for the capacitive load; 0pF and 100pF which are represented by jumper sockets
C9 for the left channel and jumper sockets C17 for the right channel (refer to figure 2 – section labelled “LOADING”). The
factory default setting is 100pF for a moving magnet cartridge, therefore both jumpers will be found in each of the two right
most sockets.
In the event that you’re using a MM cartridge, it is recommended that you leave the jumpers inserted in the factory default
setting of 100pF. Conversely, if you’re using a MC cartridge, you should use the 0pF jumper settings by simply inserting the
supplied jumpers into each of the two right-most sockets of jumpers C9 and C17.
Gain Level:
There are two (2) different settings available for gain level. They are 40dB for MM cartridges and 60dB for MC cartridges,
which are represented by jumper socket J17 for the left channel and jumper socket J22 for the right channel (refer to figure 2
– section labelled “GAIN”). The factory default setting is for a MM cartridge , therefore both jumpers will be found in each of
the two right most sockets labelled MM; It is highly recommended that you do not use the jumpers labelled MC for
an MM cartridge as this will overload the preamplifier. In the event that you’re using a MC cartridge, you should insert
the supplied jumpers into each of the two left-most sockets labelled MC.

MOON P 5.3 Stereo Preamplifier
Rear Panel Connections
Figure 3: MOON P5.3 Rear panel
The rear panel will look similar to Figure 3 (above). There are four (4) pairs of single-ended inputs on RCA connectors labeled
A2, A3, A4 and A5. The left channel inputs are located on top and the corresponding right channel inputs are located directly
below. To the left of these single-ended inputs is one (1) pair of balanced inputs labeled A1.
The MOON P5.3 Stereo Preamplifier has three pairs of outputs; One single-ended pair of RCA connectors and one balanced
pair, each labeled ‘Right Output” and “Left Output”’, located on either side of the previously aforementioned inputs; They are
designated for output to a power amplifier with either balanced XLR or single-ended RCA inputs. A third pair of outputs,
labeled “Tape Output” on single-ended RCA connectors, located directly besides the A5 input is intended as an input to a
recording device such as a cassette tape deck or CD-Recordable Player. Keep in mind that the output level on the ‘Tape
Output’ is fixed and cannot be adjusted by the P5.3’s volume control. All RCA input and output connectors on the rear panel
have been color coded: ‘white’ for the left channel and ‘red’ for the right channel.
In the event that your MOON P5.3 is equipped with the previously described phono section module, the input labelled A2
must be used to connect your turntable interconnect leads to this preamplifier.
Don’t hesitate to use high quality interconnects with your MOON P5.3. Poor quality cables can degrade the overall sonic
performance of your system.
Your MOON P5.3 is equipped with a 1/8” mini-jack input for use with aftermarket infrared remote control receivers. The “IR
in” connector is centrally located directly below the single-ended inputs. To the right of this jack is another 1/8” mini-jack
which is a 12 Volt trigger output intended for use with a power amplifier equipped with a 12 Volt trigger input. The purpose of
this trigger is to remotely power up and down your power amplifier at the same time as your P5.3 using its “Standby” switch.
Finally on the right side is the main power switch (“0”=off, “1”=on), the IEC receptacle, labeled “AC POWER” for the included
AC power cord.
All rear panel connectors have been chosen because they provide the best possible connections for your unit. A poor contact
will degrade the signal substantially, and plugs and sockets should all look clean and free of dirt and corrosion. The easiest
way to clean them is to remove the cables from their sockets and push them back in again. This procedure requires that your
Stereo Preamplifier and the rest of your components be completely turned off. Not heeding this warning may result in serious
damage to your equipment. Special contact cleaning fluids and enhancers should not be used, as they deposit a difficult to
remove residue which degrades the performance of your components.

MOON P 5.3 Stereo Preamplifier
Operating the P5.3
We recommend that you leave your MOON P5.3 Stereo Preamplifier powered up at all times to maintain optimal
performance. In the event that you plan to be away from your home for a few days, powering off the Stereo Preamplifier
may not be a bad idea. Once fully “broken-in”, please keep in mind that your P5.3 will require several hours of playing time
before it reaches its peak performance after you’ve powered it up again.
Making the AC Connection
Connect the supplied AC power cable to the IEC receptacle, located on the rear panel of the Stereo Preamplifier’s chassis.
Ensure that the AC wall outlet you use has a functioning ground. For the best sonic performance, it is preferable that you
plug your MOON P5.3 directly into a dedicated AC outlet and avoid using an extension cord.
In order to obtain the maximum performance from your audio system, we strongly recommend that the detachable power
cord not come into physical contact with any of the interconnect and speaker cables running to and from your P5.3. In the
event that this can’t be avoided, you should ensure that any cables coming into contact with each other are crossed at ninety
degree angle to minimize the contact area.
Turning on your MOON P5.3 for the first time
Prior to turning the Stereo Preamplifier on for the first time, make sure that every cable is properly connected to avoid any
problems. Then turn on your Stereo Preamplifier in the following manner:
1)
Flick the main rocker switch labeled “POWER” to the ‘1’ (on) position on the rear of the P5.3.
2)
Press the push button labeled “Stand by/On” on the P5.3’s front panel. The blue LED will illuminate and the
digital display will indicate a gain setting of ‘0’ and the ‘A1’ as the default input.
On and Off Sequence
To avoid having any annoying noises (ie. “thumps” and “pops”) emanate from your speakers when powering your P5.3 on or
off, you should
1)
Always power up your P5.3 preamplifier before powering up your amplifier.
2)
Always power down your P5.3 after powering down your amplifier.
____________________________________________________________________________________
Operating the P5.3
12
MOON P 5.3 Stereo Preamplifier
Balanced Operation
When using an unbalanced interconnect, the audio signal runs through both the center wire and the shield/ground wire. Any
noise picked up by this interconnect (ie. nearby magnetic fields such as an AC power cord) will be reproduced by both the
preamplifier and amplifier, then heard through the loudspeakers. Conversely, a balanced interconnect has three separate
conductors; one for the ground and two for the actual signal. These two signals are identical except that one is 180 degrees
out of phase with the other. For example, when one conductor is carrying a signal of +10 Volts, the other will be carrying a
signal of –10 Volts. When these two inverted signals on a balanced line are output from the MOON P5.3, any noise picked
up by the interconnect will be eliminated since a differential circuit amplifies only the difference between these two signals:
Noise on a balanced interconnect will be equal on both conductors and therefore not be processed.
Remote Control Operation
The MOON P5.3 stereo preamplifier uses the ‘FRM-2’ full function, all aluminum remote
control (figure 4). It operates on the Philips RC-5 communication protocol and can be
used with other MOON components.
The ‘FRM-2’ remote uses three AAA batteries (included). To install them, use the
supplied Allen key to remove the three screws located on the back plate; insert the
batteries in the correct direction and then screw the back plate back into place.
To operate the P5.3 with this remote control, you must first press the button labeled
‘Preamp’ in the top right corner.
The POWER button switches the P5.3 between ‘Standby’ and ‘On’ mode.
The INPUT button temporarily assigns the ‹ and Œ buttons to perform the same
function as the “+” and “-” input buttons located on the Preamplifier’s front panel;
allowing you to sequentially scroll through each of the preamplifier’s inputs. After five
seconds of inactivity, the ‹ and Œ buttons will again control channel balance (see
below).
The VOL+ and VOL– buttons increase and decrease, respectively, the volume level.
The ‹ and Œ buttons control channel balance; Pressing the left arrow button causes a
decrease in the volume level of the right channel; pressing the right arrow button causes
a decrease in the volume level of the right channel.
The MUTE button, located in the middle of the volume and balance buttons, performs the
identical function as the ‘Mute’ button located on the P5.3’s front panel.
