Peachtree Audio nova220SE
nova220SE - Power and Finesse
The nova220SE is an integrated amplifier, DAC, and headphone amp all
rolled into one. Its combination of high output power, transparent sound,
and digital and analog connectivity makes it simple to enjoy all of
your music with uncompromising quality.
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 theyll 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 (4O), 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 musics full dynamic
The nova220SE has a built-in 24-bit/192kHz digital to analog converter.
Using ESS Technologys 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 Peachtrees
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.
The nova220SE's discrete Class A preamp reproduces clearer micro-detail,
decay and texture, which makes listening to your favorite music even
more immersive. Because every signal is routed through the preamp it
is a critical part of the signal path. The nova220SE benefits from trickle
down technology by using the discrete Class A preamp stage found in
Peachtrees top-of-the-line Grand Series. The preamp delivers a
balanced signal to the internal amplifier for the highest quality possible.
The Tube Buffer
The nova220SE includes Peachtrees signature triode tube buffer
to soften bright recordings and create a more natural sound. The tube
buffer can be engaged or bypassed on the fly with a simple button press
on the included remote control, allowing you to listen in either pure
solid state or tube mode. A Russian 6N1P military tube (6922 variant)
specifically chosen for its consistent reliability is installed and
will provide years (average 10,000 hours) of enjoyment. The tube is
user replaceable and replacements are readily available. Experience
the joy of tubes without the hassles.
The Headphone Amp
More than just a headphone jack, the nova220SE includes a dedicated
headphone amp to deliver ten times more power than what you get out
of your smartphone or computer. Delivering over 1,000mW of power, ultra
low distortion and low output impedance - your headphones will sound
better than ever. Its a truly awesome experience on your head.
