Peachtree novaPre

It's a world-class DAC

The novaPre is a high-end digital to analog converter (DAC). The USB input is asynchronous, so your computer audio files will be decoupled from the timing errors that often accompany them, and reclocked on their way to the heart of the digital-to analog conversion process, the novaPre's built-in ESS Sabre DAC.

The ESS Sabre 9023 DAC is recognized as being among the world's best, and the novaPre's circuitry has been consciously designed around the needs and strengths of this chip. Your digital files will be faithfully converted to a pristine analog signal that holds true to the artist's original sonic intention. And there won't be any reason to worry about contamination from outside electrical anomalies. All digital inputs (1 USB, 1 optical, 2 coax) that have a path to ground are galvanically isolated, so there's no means for electrical noise from power supplies or processors to affect the signal path downstream.

It's a hybrid tube buffer

The novaPre is prepared for today's compressed streaming music sources, with an on-board tube buffer that helps to smooth the harsh waveforms that can be present on lower-quality compression. It can be switched on or off from the remote control, depending on your personal preference.

A headphone amp, too

Lastly, the novaPre functions as an audiophile-quality headphone amp, for times when you want to feed your favorite set of headphones. And, as above, the tube buffer can be switched in or out to accommodate your source material, even when your listening is private.

The novaPre pairs beautifully with Peachtree's elegant power amplifier, the Peachtree 220.

NOVA 220


About the Peachtree220

With a fine component like the Peachtree220 stereo power amplifier, fancy words aren't really necessary. It's Peachtree. And it delivers 220 watts per channel of pure, controlled power from an attractive, low profile package that they're proud to put their highly-regarded name on. If you've spent any time listening to Peachtree products at all, you'll know that we've said enough for you to make a sound decision.

But hey, since you asked, we'll tell you more things you'll want to know. Instantly available clean power is the spark that ignites your music, and the '220 has plenty of it. You'll notice cleaner imaging and more extension on both ends of the audio spectrum as your speakers have the power they need to reproduce demanding frequencies and dynamic range.

The '220 takes both balanced XLR stereo inputs and unbalanced RCA stereo inputs. Two sets of high-quality 5-way binding posts will host speaker cables with banana plugs or spades, or just bare speaker wire.

This amplifier features a Class D design which delivers crisp treble and floor-shaking bass. It runs cooler than many other amps. And if you run 4 ohm speakers, the 220 will give you an even more impressive 400 watts per channel.


Product highlights:

  • 220 watts per channel into 8 ohms; 400 watts per channel into 4 ohms
  • balanced XLR and unbalanced RCA stereo inputs
  • switchable voltage for international use
  • frequency response: 20Hz-20kHz + .5dB
  • detachable power cord
  • 14-7/8"W x 4-15/16"H x 13-1/2"D
  • weight: 16.34 lbs.
