With its trailblazing Decco amplifier, Peachtree Audio hit on a winning formula for the download generation a high current integrated amp with a vacuum tube preamp stage mated to a high-performance digital-to-analog converter. A USB input made it surprisingly simple to enjoy high-fidelity sound when using a computer as a music source. The vacuum tube made digital music sound surprisingly organic.
The new Decco2 improves on the original, by incorporating the acclaimed ESS Sabre DAC. The Sabre DAC "upsamples" your music files to 24-bit/96kHz resolution and filters out "jitter" (digital timing errors). The result is digital music that sounds remarkably clean and lifelike, with three-dimensional stereo imaging. The DAC filter slope switch let you choose a fast slope that measures better on a test bench or a slow slope that sounds better to some listeners.
The back panel features a "sharp/slow" filter switch that helps fine tune the sound to your listening preferences. You also get variable and fixed line out, so you can connect a subwoofer or an external amp.
The Decco2's optical and coaxial inputs make it easy to connect your other digital sources such as a CD player, music server, or a music streamer like the Logitech® Squeezebox Duet. The Decco also makes an ideal companion to the Wadia 170iTransport for getting better sound from your iPod.
The internal storage bay lets you neatly stow a Sonos® ZonePlayer 90.
