Peachtree Audio nova 65SE
Musical Performance in the Real World
The nova65SE is an integrated amplifier, DAC, and headphone amp all rolled into one. Its combination of high output power, transparent sound, and digital and analogue connectivity make it simple to enjoy all of your music with uncompromising quality.
With five inputs, including 24/192 Asynchronous USB, you can enjoy computer and streaming audio with incredible high fidelity sound.
Pride of Ownership
The nova65SE has a timeless industrial design that fits naturally in the home. The wood cabinet is sourced from sustainable resources and is available in three premium finishes: rosewood, high gloss black, and cherry. The front panel is made from six-millimetre thick bead blasted aluminium with a soft cool grey finish. 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 an amplifier that delivers up to 95 watts per channel (4Ω), the nova65SE is the perfect partner for efficient speakers, near-field desktop systems and for listeners that value quality over quantity of sound. If your listening habits or speakers require more power to sound their best, check out the even more powerful nova220SE.
High Resolution 24-bit/192kHz upsampling 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.
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 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!
