High Resolution 24-bit/192kHz DAC Using ESS Technology's patented Hyperstream Modulator, the DAC in the nova125SE is capable of 100% jitter rejection for maximum fidelity. Any digital source, from a computer to a streamer such as Sonos or Apple TV, can be instantly upgraded. Even compressed audio files can sound shockingly good when run through the Peachtree DAC, so you can maximize the fun of streaming music from Pandora or even concerts on YouTube! The nova125SE DAC is fully compatible with lossless "studio master" 24-bit 192kHz downloads from sites such as HDTracks. These files can be played back from your computer via the nova125SE USB input for sound quality above and beyond old school 16-bit CD.
iMac The 24/192 Asynchronous USB Input has a major impact on the overall sound quality of the nova125SE. Asynchronous communication keeps digital jitter at bay by not relying on the audio clock in the computer, which can get thrown off time by the thousands of processes running in your operating system's background. The USB input on the nova125SE provides the best possible resolution, which furthers the efforts of the ESS Sabre DAC.
Sonos Galvanic Isolation blocks electrical noise from all of the digital inputs on the nova125SE. Computers and digital streamers are prime sources of electrical noise. Electrical noise, even noise that you can't hear directly, masks fine details and distorts the tone of music. Galvanic isolation eliminates this noise. The Preamp
Discrete Class A Output Stage The nova125SE benefits from trickle down technology by using the discrete Class A output stage employed in Peachtree's top-of-the-line Grand Series. This circuit reproduces clearer micro-detail, decay and texture, which makes listening to your favorite music even more immersive. Since every signal gets routed through this circuit it is a critical part of the signal path. The Tube Buffer
Selectable Tube Buffer
The nova125SE includes Peachtree's signature triode tube buffer to soften bright recordings and create a more natural sound. The tube buffer can be engaged or bypassed on the fly with a simple button press on the included remote control, allowing you to listen in either pure solid state or tube mode. A Russian 6N1P military tube (6DJ8 variant) was specifically chosen for its consistent reliability and will provide years (average 10,000 hours) of enjoyment. The tube is user replaceable and replacements are readily available. Experience the joy of tubes without the hassle.
The Power Amplifier The 125 watt per channel Power Amp offers exceptional performance, with extended bandwidth, improved dynamic range, and exceptionally low distortion. The high current output stage delivers 200 watts per channel at 4Ω and comfortably drives even difficult speaker loads. The nova125SE is an ideal partner for your favorite speaker!
The Headphone Amp The Headphone Amp enables you to listen in solitude without sacrificing sound quality. Most headphones need more than the tiny amount of power that trickles out of the headphone jack from your computer or iPod. Plug your phones into the nova125SE and hear what they sound like with copious amounts of undistorted power driving them.
