The Moondrop Moonriver 2 Ti is an upgraded version of the renowned Moonriver 2 DAC & AMP. This new edition draws its design inspiration from the captivating and flowing "Flow" of the original design. Crafted with exceptional attention to detail, it boasts an exquisite appearance. However, it's not merely a cosmetic enhancement as Moondrop has also made significant improvements to the sound capabilities of the DAC. The Moonriver 2 Ti features a titanium shell design and incorporates dual flagship CS43198 DAC chips, a four-channel amplifier, and five independent power chips in its meticulously engineered audio circuitry. This precise design ensures exceptional sound performance, delivering a high dynamic range (DNR) of 131dB and a clean, noise-free background. Immerse yourself in your favourite music with newfound clarity and experience the Moondrop Moonriver 2 Ti.



Moondrop has incorporated a high-performance audio circuit into the Moonriver 2 Ti, making it an exceptional performer.

These DAC chips excel at decoding high-resolution audio signals, ensuring top-level performance. The audio circuitry of the Moonriver 2 Ti guarantees high dynamic range (DNR), signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), and minimal distortion in the output signal, resulting in outstanding sound quality. It is compatible with various audio sources like laptops, smartphones, PCs, tablets, and more.

Almost satisfying

I have tested this with moondrop kato. Hifiman He R9 and Sundara

1. Tuning favours all moondrop iems specially the dynamic drivers or those need increased sense of precision/clarity in vocals
2. High accuracy and details throughout.
3. Close to natural reproduction of vocals but could have better especially lacking in natural decay
4. Value for money I would say as the dac implementation is very good
5. No better alternative present at this price range with same sense of resolution and a somewhat natural timbre
6. D/A Chip has built in error correction, I am sure of it. Mp3s and flacs with poor or old recording sounds extraordinarily clear and precise.

1. Amp needs more power. Not enough slam or dynamics in Kato.
2. This makes bass and male vocals loose body and somewhat dry/sterile as tested with Moondrop kato (7.5/10 in bass and note weight) but still not bad I guess cause other products in this price range also suffer the same problem except Ru6 and ifi sacrificing resolution
4. Sound stage feels restricted

To Cirrus Logic:-
They built the D/A converter in such a way that will filter-out any signal that it thinks as noise to achieve SNR of 131db. It overly dampens any echo, reverb or air/sparkle making every thing deBlurred (anti-aliasing). This also filters out necessary natural decay from all recordings

The Cons I listed comes from a trained hearing sense cause I listened to very high end.desktop dac amp systems. The net output is still enjoyable and toe tapping and precise. I am okay with this for now at this price. The pros win against the odds here

We really appreciate the genuine feedback, we'll share your thoughts with the brand as well!

The Moonriver 2 Ti

The Moonriver 2 Ti is an extremely capable portable DAC that delivers a detailed and balanced sound with a slight warm-ish signature. It has the same flagship DAC chip as the iBasso DX160, but the implementation is much better in the Moonriver 2 Ti. The sound does not have any coloration, meaning it will provide the best out of any IEM sound signature that is connected to it.

The bass is well-defined and impactful, but it never overwhelms the other frequencies. The mids are clear and articulate, and the treble is smooth and extended. The soundstage is wide and spacious, and imaging is precise. The soundstage is even wider and more impressive than the iBasso DX160 and Fiio Q3 THX dac/amp. Listening to the track “House Atreides from The Dune Sketchbook by Hans Zimmer” was startling and scared me, which is a testament to the Moonriver 2 Ti's soundstage capabilities.

The Moonriver 2 Ti is also very portable and easy to use. It is small but not lightweight, and it comes with a 3.5mm single-ended and 4.4mm balanced connection.

Overall, the Moondrop Moonriver 2 Ti is a great choice for anyone looking for a portable and versatile DAC/amp with a neutral-warm sound signature. It is well-made, sounds great, and is easy to use.

Here are some of the pros and cons of the Moonriver 2 Ti:

Neutral-warm sound signature
Detailed and balanced sound
Wide soundstage and precise imaging
High-quality build with lovely design

Can be a bit pricey
The titanium body and glass cover are prone to scratches.

Thanks a lot for your detailed and genuine feedback, we're glad that you have such positive thoughts about the product and we'll share your thoughts with the brand as well. It'll also help our fellow customers to make the right choice!
