The Reasons It Sounds So Good
The nova220SE has a distinct industrial design that fits naturally in the home. The high gloss black cabinet is hand-sanded and made from wood sourced from sustainable resources. The front panel is crafted from thick six-millimeter brushed aluminum with engraved logos and input labels so they’ll never wear off. A glass window gives a view of the triode tube, which is illuminated by a blue LED when engaged. These are some of the simple touches that provide pride of ownership in an age of disposable hardware.
Peachtree amplifiers are rated “all channels driven” from 20Hz to 20kHz (full bandwidth of human hearing) to provide real world power ratings. Featuring a blockbuster amplifier that delivers up to 350 watts per channel (4Ω), the nova220SE has power to spare.
The amp in the nova220SE is twice as energy efficient as traditional amplifier technologies, leaving no need for expensive heatsinks or noisy fans that add unnecessary bulk and cost. Whether you enjoy your music at low volumes or want to feel every note, the nova220SE provides the power and headroom needed to appreciate your music’s full dynamic range.
The nova220SE has a built-in 24-bit/192kHz upsampling DAC. Using ESS Technology’s patented Hyperstream Modulator, the DAC in the nova220SE is capable of 100% jitter rejection for maximum fidelity. Any digital source, from an old CD player to a computer to a streamer such as Sonos or AppleTV, can be instantly upgraded. Even compressed audio files sound shockingly good when run through the Peachtree’s DAC, so you can maximize the fun of streaming music from Pandora or concerts on YouTube! Lossless “studio master” 24-bit files can be played back with sound quality above and beyond old-school CD's.
