The Peachtree Audio preDAC is a preamplifier + DAC based on the incredible nova500 integrated amplifier. The preDAC is, in essence, a nova500 with the amplifier section removed - but with key upgrades. Like the nova500, the preDAC is a differential (aka balanced) audio design that provides exceptional immunity from noise/interference and keeps the audio signal as far above the noise floor as possible. The preDAC features a dedicated power supply, superior signal-to-noise ratio, balanced XLR outputs (in addition to single-ended RCA) and even better headphone amp performance. The preDAC provides the same input flexibility as our nova integrateds: USB-B for a computer USB-A for an iOS device coaxial digital 2 optical digital 2 configurable analog inputs including MM phono Home Theater Bypass LOOP feature to insert equalization, room correction, or other signal processing into the signal chain We can’t think of a better partner for the preDAC than the Peachtree GaN400.
Exceptionally accurate waveform reproduction, amazing power and control, low global negative feedback and extremely efficient use of AC power. It provides the highest level of musicality without sacrificing the remarkable efficiency of a class-D design, and is proudly assembled in the USA. The GaN400 is simply the best sounding power amplifier we have ever made and compares favorably to the world's best power amplifiers regardless of their topology.
