Peachtree Audio Nova 150 boasts lots of power and a huge set of features

In 2007 Peachtree Audio introduced a new integrated amplifier that immediately and forever changed the amplifier landscape. This amplifier – our original Decco – was groundbreaking for its time. It had a unique industrial design with an aluminum front panel, a simple button and knob user interface and a rounded wood case finished with beautiful veneers. Inside, it housed a class A/B power amplifier, a tube buffer visible through a window in the front panel and, most significantly, a USB input with built-in DAC to accept a direct connection from a Mac or PC! “Computer audio” was born, with Peachtree’s Decco and Nova amplifiers on the leading edge, and with computer audio a defining part of Peachtree’s identity.

The Peachtree Audio Nova 150 utilizes the highly regarded ES9018K2M SABRE32 Reference DAC. The 9018 DAC is capable of accepting an extremely wide range of inputs all the way up to 32-Bit/384kHz PCM and 5.2MHz DSD (double-DSD). The DAC exhibits exemplary dynamic range, jitter elimination and low noise characteristics to satisfy even the most demanding listeners.

The nova150 incorporates the latest generation of ICEPower amplification with an impressive 150 watts per channel. The amplifier utilizes ICEpower’s innovative and patented Hybrid Controlled Oscillation Modulator (HCOM) feedback and control techniques to ensure high output, wide bandwidth, low noise, robust stability and a simplified overall design. The amplifier in the nova150 is capable of driving an extremely wide range of speakers with impedances as low as 2.5Ω and as high as 16Ω.

The nova150 utilizes an extensive power supply and grounding design to ensure the noise floor is pushed as far down as possible to allow the music to shine through. Our engineers spent hours upon hours determining the optimal power supply filtering and grounding scheme to prevent any unwanted noise from finding its way into the signal path. As a result, the nova150 achieves a remarkable dynamic range and signal-to-noise ratio. Turn up the nova150 to full volume without music playing, put your ear to the speaker and enjoy the lack of noise!

The nova150 includes a dedicated asynchronous USB connection on the rear panel that provides a direct digital wired connection to Apple Lightning equipped devices. Simply use the cable that came with your iPhone or iPad and enjoy the music and apps of your mobile device with the DAC and sound quality of the nova! The nova150 remote control will even perform the play/pause and track fwd/rev functions on any compatible application.

Moving magnet (MM) phono input for direct connection of a turntable. A custom designed circuit that accommodates a wide range of MM cartridge outputs. With the nova150 you no longer need an external phono preamp unless you are using a lower output moving coil cartridge. In that case, the internal phono preamp in the nova150 can be bypassed, allowing the phono input to accept line-level signals from a dedicated phono preamp or any other line-level device.

Home Theater Bypass (HTB) is Back! HTB allows for easy integration with a multi-channel preamp/processor or audio/video receiver (AVR) so that the power

The nova150 offers a standard suite of digital audio inputs, including asynchronous USB for a computer. In addition, there is one coaxial S/PDIF input and two optical inputs that accommodate signals up to 24-Bit/192kHz, assuming the connected device can output those signals. If it can’t, no worries; use your computer instead to output your high-res files to the nova150’s asynchronous USB input.

Discrete Headphone Amp can drive any headphones on the market, and drive them well. The signal-to-noise ratio of the circuitry will impress even the most dyed-in-the-wool headphone enthusiast! When you plug headphones in, the speakers and preamp outputs are automatically muted and the volume knob becomes a dedicated headphone volume controller. Unplug the headphones, and the system reverts back to being an integrated amplifier.
