Explore Peachtree Audio
Peachtree Audio is a 12 year old company founded by Signal Path, the ex US importer of Musical Fidelity. The founders have over 150 years of combined industry experience. Peachtree is dedicated to offering hi-value/hi-performance audio products at prices that are far more than their hi-end competition. Hi-end performance at mainstream prices. And now most products are made in North America. All their products have received excellent reviews. The Nova was Stereophile Budget Component of the Year and the new models set a new value performance standard unmatched in the industry. Peachtree is "THE" a leader in computer audio and already on their 5th generation of products while other companies are just starting to learn what it takes to make computers sound great for hi-end audio. They were the first company to add a USB DAC to an integrated amplifier. The new Nova series uses sophisticated 32 bit/384k DSD capable ESS 9018 Sabre DAC's coupled to world class preamplifiers with very stable hi power amplifiers.
GREAT NOVA 220SE DEAL
I have a limited number of brand new sealed Peachtree Audio Nova 220SE integrated amps for sale. These are A-stock and not refurbished. They have the 2 year factory warranty.
The Nova 220SE is a 220 wpc remote controlled integrated amp with excellent Asynchronous 24.192k Sabre DAC, analog input, tube and solid state preamp and preout to run a sub. It also has a nice headphone amp. Other manufacturers use the same amp stage and rate them at 250 watts. Peachtree is conservative.
I have heard it outperform some high ends separates from the big boys that sell for multiples of its price.

In the Hifi+ review when they were $1999.00 Chris Martens said:
"…I think the nova220SE deserves recognition as one of the benchmarks in its class. Best of all, it offers the elusive and
desirable combination of sonic finesse and dynamic clout—qualities that free listeners to explore virtually any sort of loudspeakers they might
wish to try. For these reasons and more, I think the nova220SE makes a great place to start (or perhaps conclude) a quest for high-end sound at
a sensible price."-

"Until recently, praising class-D power amplifiers came with a warning that proper speaker matching is crucial. Just like Peachtree’s
nova125, the nova220SE needs no such disclaimer. With speakers from Harbeth, Totem, ACI, Golden Ear, and Magnepan, this integrated amplifier
shows no weaknesses."

borders on the magical."
