Firmware update can be launched from network settings menu
Starting the MiND App:
Before proceeding, you must have successfully followed the instructions outlined in the MiND Setup Guide, whereby all
your components are properly connected and your MiND device(s) is successfully configured into your network.
This “App User Gude” and the “MiND Setup Guide” are both available at: www.simaudio.com/en/mind.html.
Tap the “MiND” icon to launch the MiND app. All available MiND ZONES will appear in the left column. There
will be one ZONE for each MiND hardware device connected to your network (figure 1), based on the
previously assigned ZONE names, as outlined in the MiND Setup Guide procedure. For the examples that
follow in this guide, we will select the ZONE named “Stage” by simply tapping on it (figure 2).
Figure 1
Figure 2
The ZONE list is used to manage all zones that are part of your network. Each ZONE requires its own unique MiND
hardware device and they can all operate independently of one another. The MiND app essentially manages the music
you can play in multiple entertainment systems. To edit a ZONE’s settings (as descibed in the MiND Setup Guide), simply
tap on the
icon, located at the top right of the list.
The zone where the
icon appears indicates which zone your APP is currently communicating with. Tapping on this
icon will result in the APP disconnecting from the zone.
Note: You can refresh the zone list at anytime by placing your finger near the top of the zone list
and swiping it downwards – a message will apear at the top of the zone list “Pull to rescan network”

MiND App Screen Layout:
Figure 3
After selecting a ZONE, the default MiND App screen appears (figure 3) and is divided into two sections: the QUEUE on
the left third of the screen and the BROWSER, occupying the other two-thirds of the screen. The ZONE list can be
accessed any time by simply tapping on the home
icon located at the bottom left of the app screen. To hide the ZONE
list and switch back to the QUEUE/Browser view, simply select a zone from the list. Note: the ZONE list is hidden after you
select your ZONE since it is not required beyond the start up of the MiND app, unless you want to control another MiND
device in your network.
The BROWSER section allows you to browse through all of the MiND supported music
files - Wave, FLAC, FLAC HD, AIF, AAC, ALAC, MP3 (vbr/cbr), WMA-9 ,OGG Vorbis, up to 24bit/192kHz - available on your network; It is based on the UPnP protocol, so you must
have compatble server software on your NAS or computer. Initially, the contents of the
BROWSER will be from the library that you previously used, listed by musical genre. To
select a “Library”, tap on the
icon located at the top left of the BROWSER section
(figure 4).
The “Library” lists of all the Network Attached Storage devices, computers, etc. that
contain music files, and are connected to your router. In this example there are 10
different entries Selecting one of these entries, allows you access to the music stored on
that device. In this example, we are going to select “APP Guide MiND” library.
Once selected, you can choose from various options (Figure 5) to view the music available
on the “APP Guide MiND” device. These display options are based how you configure the
settings of your server software on your NAS or computer, and are independant of the
MiND app. Display options in this example include Artist/Album, Album, Title (track/song
name), Composer and More (for more options).

Tapping on the “Album” tab, the BROWSER section will show an Album index (Figure 6) that allows you to search albums
in alphabetical order; select a letter by tapping on either the tile or the vertical alphabetical index on the far right side.
Alternatively, you can tap on the [All Albums] tile option which displays an alphabetically ordered tile view every album
available in the current library “APP Guide MiND” (Figure 7). Notice how the “Album” tab is highlighted in a light gray
when selected, compared to the other tabs.
Figure 6
Figure 7
The Back
button, located at the top right corner of the BROWSER. makes navigating the BROWSER an easy process.
When you want to return to the previous BROWSER screen, simply tap on the “Back” button.
To scroll though the entire list of available albums, simply swipe your finger (up or down) over the BROWSER section. To
select an album, tap on the album name and the BROWSER screen will change, showing you a list of all the tracks from
the selected album (figure 8); “Californication” by the “Red Hot Chili Peppers” which has a total of 16 tracks as indicated
by an icon located in the bottom right corner of the BROWSER. Since only 12 of these tracks are visible in the BROWSER,
you can use one of your fingers to swipe on the screen to scroll down and see the 4 remaining tracks of this album.
You can now select the tracks that you want to listen to. This is done by adding them to the QUEUE: Simply tap on each
track that you want to add to the QUEUE (figure 9) and they will be highlighted. Tap on a track a second time and it will
no longer be highlighted. In this example, we have selected tracks 1, 4 and 7.

The QUEUE section manages the music you will be listening to and displays information about the song currently
playing. It allows you to specify, by individual song/track, the exact order in which you can play your music. The contents
of the QUEUE is essentially a “Playlist”. At any time, you can change the order of the songs, add more songs, remove
songs or delete its entire contents and build a new one. The QUEUE can hold a maximum of 250 tracks. You can also save
the contents of the QUEUE as a “Playlist” for future use (refer to page 16).
To create a QUEUE, tap on the “Play Now” button
located in the top right corner of the BROWSER and these 3
tracks will be added to the QUEUE (figure 10) which occupies the left side of the MiND app screen. The same logic applies
if you are using another search option such as “Artist/Album”, “Title” (song) or “Composer”. If you wanted to add all 16
tracks from this album to the QUEUE, simply tap on the “Play Now” button without highlighting any tracks. You can
always change the contents of your QUEUE by editing it (refer to page 14).

Adding tracks to the QUEUE:
You can add music from a different album to the QUEUE that was just created. Using the back button
return to the
tile view of the “Album” index (figure 11), select an album - “Can’t Buy A Thrill” by artist “Steely Dan” - and highlight the
first track “Do It Again” (figure 12)
Figure 11
Figure 12
In this example the current track in the QUEUE is “Around The World” from the album “Californication” by the “Red Hot
Chili Peppers”. The current track is always displayed in the top half of the QUEUE, along with its corresponding album
information. It can easily be identified in the QUEUE list (bottom half of the QUEUE where all tracks are displayed in
playback order) by the “current track” icon
located on the right side of the track name.
There are four (4) ways to add music to a QUEUE: When you tap on the “Queue” button
to the left of the “Play
Now” button, a pulldown menu will appear (figure 13) with the following three (3) “Add Tracks…” options: “Top”, “Next”,
and “End”. The fourth option is “Play Now”. Each of these options works differently.
Figure 13

Adding tracks to the QUEUE (cont’d)
Tapping on the “Top” button in the “Add Tracks …” pop-up window adds “Do It Again” to the top of the QUEUE (figure
14). The current track “Around The World” remains unchanged and continues playing.
Tapping on the “Next” button inserts “Do It Again” right after “Around The World” (figure15). The current track “Around
The World” remains unchanged and continues playing.
Tapping on the “End” button inserts “Do It Again” to the end of the QUEUE (figure 16) The current track “Around The
World” remains unchanged and continues playing.
Tapping on the “Play Now” button, inserts “Do It Again” in the QUEUE, right after “Around The World” and immediately
begins to play it (figure 17). “Do It Again” is now the current track and the QUEUE now contains 5 tracks.
Figure 14
Figure 15
Note: When the QUEUE is empty, any of these four options will load the QUEUE in the exact same way.
If you do not select any tracks from the album displayed in the browser and tap one
of these four (4) buttons, the contents of the entire album will be added to the QUEUE.

Playing tracks in the QUEUE:
Once your QUEUE contains one or more tracks, you may begin playing these tracks by simply tapping on the X (play)
button (Figure 18). The first track in the QUEUE will begin playing. To temporarily stop playing this track, tap on the (pause) button (Figure 19). The X and button are in the same location and alternate, depending on the status of the
MiND app: When a track is “Playing” the button will appear as ; When a track is “Paused” or “Stopped” the button will
appear as X.
Figure 18
Figure 19
The previous track and next track buttons (Figure 19b) only function when a track in the QUEUE is either playing or
paused. Tapping on the button will play the current track from the beginning. Tapping on it again will take you to the
beginning of the previous track in the QUEUE and start playing it. Tapping on the button will play the next track in the
QUEUE from the beginning.
Finally, by tapping on a track listed in QUEUE, the MiND App will immediately play that track from the beginning.

Position Slider in the QUEUE:
This real-time feature allows you to navigate, forward or backward, within the
current track. You can move to the exact location, by time, of the track. This
comes in handy when you want to skip over the intro of a track or go back to
hear a section of the current track again. Simply place your finger on the round
button of the slider (Figure 20) and move it to either the left (to go backward) or
to the right (to go forward).
Figure 20
Located directly below the cover art, the time displayed left side of the slider indicates the elapsed time of the current
track; the time on the right side indicates remaining time. You can move the slider when the track is playing or paused; If
you move it while the track is paused, it will begin playing again once you take your finger off the button.
Shuffle and Repeat Play:
The MiND app allows you to shuffle the contents of the QUEUE so the tracks will play in a random order, as opposed to
the way they are listed. To activate the “shuffle” mode, simply tap on the icon located in the top left corner of the QUEUE
column (Figure 21a). Once activated, the icon will change color from white to
red. To exit “shuffle” mode, tap the icon again.
Figure 21a
You can play the current track repeatedly by simply tapping the “repeat” icon, located in the top right corner of the
QUEUE column (figure 21b). Once activated, the icon will change color from
white to red and a “1” will appear in the bottom right corner of the icon. This
indicates that the “repeat” mode is set for a single track.
Figure 21b
Finally, the MiND app allows you to play the entire QUEUE, from start to finish repeatedly, by tapping the same “repeat”
icon a second time. The color will remain red and the “1” will disappear (figure 21c). To exit from “repeat” mode, simply
tap on the “repeat” icon a third time; the color of the icon will change back to
white, indicating regular playback has resumed. Note: “shuffle” and “repeat”
modes can be used together.
Figure 21c
Volume and Muting:
The MiND app allows you to increase, decrease and mute the volume. However, the MiND unit must be physically
connected to a SimLink™ equipped MOON integrated ampifier or preamplifier. These functions are accomplished using
the volume tool bar located in the bottom right area of the app (figure 22a), below the BROWSER column. To decrease
the volume level simply tap on middle icon; to increase the volume level simply tap the right icon. To adjust the volume
level in small increments you can tap repeatedly on either volume icon. Touch and hold either volume icon to adjust the
volume in larger increments. To mute the output, tap on the left icon. When the MiND’s output signal is muted, the mute
icon will change color from white to red (figure 22b). To cancel the mute function, tap on the icon again.
Figure 22a
Figure 22b
The mute function will only work if your SimLink equipped MOON component has been
updated with a firmware release (ver. 30) available from January 2013 onwards.

SimLink and MiND:
Your SimLink equipped MOON Preamplifier or Integrated Amplifier will automatically switch to the input configured for
MiND under the following scenarios:
Tapping on the X button,
Tapping on the track name in the QUEUE list
Tapping “Play Now” button
Figure 23
Another SimLink function included with the MiND app is the ability to turn your MOON system on and off:
When you select a zone (figure 2), all MOON components connected via SimLink will power up in that zone;
When you tap the “On/Off”
button, located in the bottom right corner of the selected ZONE (figure 23), all
MOON components connected via SimLink will go into “Standby” mode in that zone.
Information Displayed in the QUEUE:
The QUEUE is divided into four (4) sections (figure 24): The header or 1st section will
display your current MiND zone. The 2nd section provides information about the
current track, the 3rd section provides a status of the QUEUE and the bottom
section displays a listing of all the tracks loaded into the QUEUE in their playback
order.
The Header: As well as indicating your current zone, the previously described
“Shuffle” and “Repeat” icons can be found on either side of the zone name.
Current Track Information: Album cover artwork related to the current track is
displayed, followed by the aforementioned “Position Slider”, elapsed track time
and remaining track time. The track name, in this example “Take It To The Limit”
appears under the position slider. Below is the album name “One of These Nights”.
The last line contains, from left to right, the file format of the track (FLAC), the
name of the artist (Eagles) and then the track’s sample rate (24/192.0kHz).
Track Status: The current track “Take It To The Limit” can be either “Paused” or
“Playing”. “Stopped” will only appear when the QUEUE has yet to be played or you
have reached the end of the QUEUE. Below this is an indicator which shows the
current track’s position in the QUEUE. In this example, “Take It To The Limit” is track
“3” in a QUEUE that has a total of “4” tracks.
QUEUE List: The entire contents of your QUEUE – a maximum of 250 tracks – are
displayed here, in their playing order. Due to space restrictions, only four (4) tracks
can be shown at once. However, using your finger, you can swipe up or down over
this section to browse the contents of your QUEUE. Each entry contains both the
track name and the album name. Finally, the current track can be identified by the
“current track” icon
located to the right side of the entry.

Editing the QUEUE:
The MiND app allows you to modify the contents of the QUEUE at any time. You can
delete individual tracks, change the playing order of the tracks, or delete the entire
contents of the QUEUE. You can even edit your QUEUE when a track is playing, paused
or stopped. Our QUEUE contains four (4) tracks for this example (figure 25).
To begin editing your QUEUE, tap on the “Edit Queue” button
located below the
QUEUE List (and to the right of the “Zones” button) to place the QUEUE into edit mode
(figure 26). Three large buttons will appear directly above the “Edit Queue” button you
just tapped: “Clear” (red), “Save” and “Edit”. The “Clear” button will delete the entire
contents in the QUEUE. “Edit” allows you to modify the existing contents of the QUEUE
by the individual track. The “Save” button allows you to save the QUEUE as a Playlist
(refer to page 16).
To edit the contents of the QUEUE, tap on the white “edit” button. The QUEUE is now
in edit mode (figure 27). Left of each track name is a red circle with a minus
sign
and to the right are three horizontal bars
. These are used to delete or move tracks,
respectively. To scroll through all of the tracks in the QUEUE, touch any area other than
these two symbols and swipe up or down.

Figure 26
Figure 27
Figure 28
Touching and leaving your finger on the three horizontal bars
to the right of the track’s name will allow you to change
its position in the QUEUE by simply dragging it up or down. In this example, we moved the 3rd track “City” up one
position. As a result, the 2nd track “Forever” is now the 3rd track (figure 28).
Currently the QUEUE contains 4 tracks.
tap on the

Saving the QUEUE as a Playlist:
The MiND App allows you to save a QUEUE as a “Playlist” so that you can listen to it
later on. In this example we will save a QUEUE with 10 tracks; Tap on the edit
QUEUE button
and select the “Save” option (figure 36).
Tapping on "Save" launches a keyboard so that you can assign a name to the
“Playlist” (figure 37). We have named the new “Playlist” “Seventies Rock” as shown
in the upper left corner. When you have finished typing the name of your “Playlist”,
simply tap on the “Done” key on the far right side of the keyboard. You can also tap
on the blue colored “Done” button located above the “Playlist” name window.
Note: The cover artwork for the “Playlist” is randomly assigned from the contents of
that “Playlist”. Finally, you may create as many Playlists as you want.
To access your “Seventies Rock” “Playlist” at any time, simply tap on the library icon
and
and select “Playlists” (figure 38). Your saved “Playlist” will appear in the
BROWSER (figure 39).
Tapping on the cover artwork for “Seventies Rock” will launch the contents of the
“Playlist” in the BROWSER (Figure 40), where you will see details for each track in
this “Playlist”. To begin playing this “Playlist”, tap on the
button when
the QUEUE is empty, and the entire contents of the “Seventies Rock” “Playlist” will
appear in the QUEUE and begin playing (figure 41). Finally, to permanently delete a
saved “Playlist”, tap on the
button to the left of the “QUEUE” button and
you will be prompted by a pop-up window to confirm or cancel this delete.

Search Function:
The MiND app allows you to search the contents of your library from within a specific library view such as Album, Title,
Artist/Album, etc. For example, if you want to search by song name, select the “Title” view of your current library (figure
43) and tap on the [All Titles] icon to retrieve a list of all songs available in the library (figure 44). To start searching, tap on
search bar
located in the top right corner of the BROWSER and a keyboard will appear (figure 45). As we
type the word “Blue” to find all songs with the word “Blue” in their title, the search result will yield fewer tracks as each
letter is typed. This is because the MiND app search function operates in real-time. Once you are finished typing your
search word(s), tap on the keyboard icon
located in the bottom right corner and the search results will appear in the
BROWSER (figure 46); in this example 7 songs with the word “Blue” in their title. Now you can add any or all of these
songs to the QUEUE. Finally, to clear the contents of the search bar, simply tap on the “X”
located on the
right side of the search bar.

and then the track’s sample rate (64kbps) are displayed. The “Track Status” section of the QUEUE will display either
“Playing Track” when streaming a station or “Stopped” when no signal is being received. Finally, the “QUEUE List” will
display both the track name and name of the artist. Depending on the station, some of this information may not be
available for display in the QUEUE.
Note: When you select a station in vTuner, it will begin playing only once a connection has
been established over the internet. A connection may take up to one minute to establish.

MiND App User Guide
MiND Firmware Update Procedure
The 180 MiND can be updated directly from the network by following these steps:
(1) Take note of your network settings from the MiND App (refer to the MiND Setup Guide procedure), since
a firmware update will automatically reconfigure these settings back to their factory defaults.
(2) If the app is running, double-click the home button, select the MiND application and shut it down.
(3) Disconnect the DC power cable (3) from the rear of the 180 MiND, but keep it connected to both your network
(wired) and the internet.
(4) Press and hold the “UPDATE” button (4) located on the back panel (on the right side of the “ETHERNET”
cable input). This will require a small pin since the button is slightly recessed behind the rear panel.
(5) While still holding the “UPDATE” button (4), reconnect the DC power cable to the 180 MiND and wait
for the “UPDATE” LED to begin flashing in green (5). Then you may release the “UPDATE” button.
(6) Allow the unit to reprogram itself; this automated process may take as long as ten minutes to complete.
The “UPDATE” LED will only stop flashing, but stay illuminated in green (5) once this process is
finished.
(7) “Reboot” the 180 MiND by disconnecting the DC power cable (3) again and waiting a few seconds.
Then reconnect the DC power cable. Now your unit is ready to use.
(8) You may now re-enter your network settings from step 1.

MiND Firmware Update Procedure (cont’d)
MOON components equipped with the MiND option (such as the Nēo 380D Digital-to-Analog Converter)
can also be updated directly from the network by following these steps:
(1) Take note of your network settings from the MiND App (refer to the MiND Setup Guide procedure), since
a firmware update will automatically reconfigure these settings back to their factory defaults.
(2) If the app is running, double-click the home button, select the MiND application and shut it down.
(3) Turn off the rocker switch (position ‘0’) (3) located on the rear of your MOON component, but keep it
connected to both your network (wired or wirelessly) and the internet.
(4) Press and hold the “UPDATE” button (4) located on the back panel (on the left side of the “ETHERNET”
cable input). This will require a small pin since the button is slightly recessed behind the rear panel.
(5) While still holding the “UPDATE” button, turn on the rocker switch (position ‘1’) and wait for
the “UPDATE” LED to begin flashing in green (5). Then you may release the “UPDATE” button.
(6) Allow the unit to reprogram itself; this automated process may take as long as ten minutes to complete.
The “UPDATE” LED will only stop flashing, but stay illuminated in green (5) once this process is
finished.
(7) “Reboot” your MOON component by turning off (position ‘0’) (3) the rear panel rocker switch and
waiting a few seconds, then turning the rocker switch back on (position ‘1’). Now your unit is ready to
use.

MiND Hardware Reset Procedure
(1) Take note of your network settings in your MiND App (refer to the MiND Setup Guide procedure), since a
firmware update will automatically reconfigure these settings back to their factory defaults.
(2) Power down the MiND by removing the DC cable. It does not matter whether or not you leave an
ethernet cable connected.
(3) Insert the tip of the paperclip into the rear panel little hole labelled "Reset". There is a small push
switch just beneath the surface of the back panel, and when you insert the paperclip properly, and
push on the switch, you'll feel it click. Hold the switch press down - do not remove the paperclip
until step #4!
(4) While the switch is pressed down, re-insert the DC cable to power up the unit.
Do Not remove the paperclip !
(5) Wait approximately two seconds, then remove the paperclip. You will probably notice that the WLAN
LED continues to flash. This is unrelated to the resetting of the unit, and is part of the normal boot-up
process of the MiND. In a like manner, the front-panel blue LED will continue to flash until it finally
goes solid blue.
(6) Once the front-panel blue LED stops flashing and stays on constantly, the MiND is fully booted and
ready to use. At this point you may re-enter your network settings from step 1.
