SAVE $300 on the preDAC when you add BLUESOUND'S NODE WIRELESS MUSIC STREAMER!*
Add high-resolution Wi-Fi streaming to your preDAC with Bluesound’s NODE and BluOS. Bluesound's stand-alone NODE reliably streams high-resolution audio from your most-requested music services and outputs it digitally to the preDAC’s built-in DAC.
We may ship the preDAC in advance of the NODE unless you instruct us otherwise, due to current limited availability of the NODE.
*NODE available for US sale only.
Connect the NODE easily to your preDAC to unlock and discover a universe of audio streaming. With more than enough analog and digital input/output options to please the most ardent audiophile, the NODE connects you to all the music ever recorded. Online streaming services, internet radio and your own digital music library on a computer, smartphone or external drive - the NODE brings infinite playback choices into your very own high fidelity domain.
The NODE has AirPlay 2 built-in for easy integration into the Apple ecosystem. Premium high-res music services like TIDAL, Qobuz and Amazon HD – as well as virtually all other popular music services and internet radio stations - are already built-in. Access your downloads, your iTunes library and content from any other NAS drive, all without turning on a computer.
The NODE has enhanced dual band Wi-Fi, providing best-in-class performance even in crowded airspace. Bluetooth features state-of-the-art aptX HD, supporting 24 bit streaming directly from your phone or tablet, and the ability to transmit studio-quality music to Bluetooth headphones and speakers.
MQA and HDMI eARC. High-end DAC technology built into every Bluesound NODE can decode and stream MQA files. The NODE also features an HDMI eARC input on the back panel, making it as comfortable in a two-channel TV system or gaming console as it is in an audiophile’s dedicated listening room.

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
