Breathtaking analog reproduction combined with well-rounded flexibility
The 310LP represents a significant step forward in phono preamplifier design. Like its predecessor, the highly acclaimed MOON LP5.3, particular attention has again been given to noise levels and dynamic range. The result is one of the quietest phono preamplifiers ever, on par and even superior to many models at significantly higher price points. Sonically, it portrays all the MOON hallmarks: clean, powerful, fast and extended bass combined with an open midrange and airy extended high frequencies.
A major strength of the 310LP is its highly configurable nature. There are numerous end-user adjustments for resisitance loading, capacitance loading and gain level. Going one step further, you can even chose from two different equalization curves - either the RIAA curve with a flat frequency response or the IEC curve which, although identical to the RIAA curve beyond 20Hz, acts like a subsonic filter by removing inaudible infrasonic bass below 20Hz.
When an audio component works so well, why change it? Thanks to various emerging technologies, several design enhancements became available, opening up a window of opportunity to (i) upgrade the sonics of the original 310LP and (ii) reduce the noise floor of its onboard power supply. Consequently, this diminishes the need for an external power supply.
Low noise floor
Experience a blacker background and even more lifelike musical reproduction. Combine this with all the MOON hallmarks: clean, powerful, fast extended bass, an open midrange and airy extended high frequencies: mid-priced phono preamplifier performance has just taken a major leap forward. To further these significant enhancements, the MOON 310LP is housed in a very stylish half width chassis.
Within the confines of this chassis are numerous end-user adjustments for resistance loading, capacitance loading and gain level. Going one step further, you can even chose from two different equalization curves; either the RIAA curve or the IEC curve.
Rounding out this package are balanced outputs that allow you to take full advantage of connectivity to a balanced preamplifier or integrated for a significant improvement in noise floor, dynamics and midrange transparency. Balanced outputs are a standard feature, allowing you to take full advantage of connectivity to a balanced preamplifier or integrated for a significant improvement in noise floor, dynamics and midrange transparency. In terms of aesthetics, the MOON 310LP is housed in a custommade, rigid chassis with a 3/8” brushed and anodized front panel.
Add the MOON 320S external power supply to bring the 310LP’s performance to the next level.

All electronic components: Ten years
Moving parts (switches, encoders, pots, etc.): Three years
- Large isolated power supply on a separate circuit board using a toroidal transformer with 2 stages of voltage regulation
- Single-ended RCA and Balanced XLR output connectors
- Can be driven with a compatible external power supply
- Power supply voltage regulation includes i 2 DCf (Indepen dent Inductive DC Filtering); 1 inductor for each and every IC in the audio circuit’s signal path – 2 stages in all
- Power supply features custom MOON electrolytic capacitors
- 4-Layer printed circuit boards with pure copper tracings for a much shorter signal path; this results in greater sonic accuracy and dramatically improved signal-to-noise ratio
