New Features and performance.
First and foremost, all circuitry the Peachtree nova series has been re-engineered from the ground up. The new nova series boasts an astonishing signal to noise ratio of 105dB A-weighted at speaker level, so dynamic range has greatly been increased. Volume accuracy and tracking are perfect from the lowest to highest volumes.
The new ICE amp has improved power supply circuitry and the sampling frequency has been raised to over 400k/sec. This makes the amplifier much smoother than any digital amp on the market with commanding bass response formally reserved class A/B amps with large, inefficient power supplies.
From mp3 to the highest DSD resolutions, the ESS 32 bit 9018 Reference DAC takes the nova series to a new level. With 11 separate power supplies for the the various stages, the nova digital circuitry far exceeds other units using the same DAC.
The nova150 brings back Home Theater Bypass. This popular feature allows the very best 2-channel performance within your home theater set up.
Built-in RIAA phono preamp. This is a full, dedicated “analog” circuit, not an analog to digital converter found in so many integrated amps these days. We keep analog, analog.
iOS input. With full resolution files on your iPhone or iPad, the new iOS/USB input will have your device sounding as good as any CD player. The usually noisy circuit and even screen can transfer noise. On the nova series, this noise is recognized and sent to ground allowing this input to perform at its best.
