The Peachtree Audio preDAC is a preamplifier + DAC based on the 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
