Class D Amplifier: The Peachtree Audio decco65 integrated amplifier's
high performance Class D amplifier has the ability to drive 65 watts per channel
into 8Ω and 95 watts per channel into 4Ω with a very natural sound. The decco65
has the sonic signature of a great A/B amp with the power efficiency of Class D.
Its combination of low distortion, high bandwidth, and energy efficiency makes
it the ideal partner to the decco65's digital front-end and hybrid tube preamp.
Tube Buffer: The Tube Buffer uses a stereo triode 6N1P to smooth the harsh digital edge found in poor recordings and compressed audio. It can be switched on or off from the remote
control to match your preference at any given time. Its especially good for
Pandora, MOG, Spotify and most Internet Radio listening. The decco65 features a
front-panel tube windows which allows you to view the glow of the unit's tube.
ESS Sabre 9023 DAC: The ESS Sabre
Digital to Analog Converter is widely recognized as the world's best
DAC when dealing with hostile digital components, like computers and streamers.
The ESS Sabre 9023 Digital to Analog Converter
contains a multi-layer board with over 450 components and 11 regulated
power supplies that work in unison to produce the Peachtree sonic signature. The
ESS Sabre Dace's patented jitter reduction circuit re-clocks the digital signal
before passing it through a high-resolution 24-bit/192kHz upsampling processor,
perfect for computers, iPods, and most streaming or hard-drive based music
servers because they typically have high levels of jitter (digital timing error
between the source and the DAC). Jitter is all but eliminated (<3 picoseconds)
leaving a beautiful, natural sound.
Compatible Audio Formats: The Peachtree Audio decco65 integrated
amplifier supports various standard resolution and high resolution audio
formats; such as MP3, WMA, AAC, AIFF, WAV, PCM, FLAC, and Apple Lossless.
Galvanic Isolation: Galvanic Isolation is typically reserved for more expensive DAC circuits.
Galvanic isolation prevents electrical noise from entering the DAC board on all
grounded digital inputs. Any contamination due to the switching power supply,
multiple ground points, and high speed processing is isolated from the DAC so
nothing but pure 1ʼs and 0ʼs reach the DAC circuit.
Headphone Amp: The Class A headphone amp in the decco65 switches the speakers off when your headphones are inserted, so even when a quiet environment is required, you can still fill your
head with lush high-resolution music. The headphone output runs through the tube
stage so you can enjoy that smooth tube sound in solitude.
Power/Standby Switch: The main power switch is located on
the rear-panel of the decco65 integrated amplifier. Once the main power switch
has been turned on, you can power on/off the integrated amplifier from the front
power button or remote control.
Volume Control: The front-panel volume control is motorized from the
remote control and has a button indicator to allow the user to see levels from a
Input Select: The integrated amplifier features five front-panel input
select buttons (USB, Coax1, Coax2, Opt, & Aux).
Remote Control: The Peachtree Audio decco65 includes an IR
remote control for wireless operation of the integrated amplifier. There are
also basic playback buttons which allow you to control Play/Pause, Skip Forward,
& Skip Backward of your connected Apple iPod, iPhone, or iPad (requires optional
dock, sold separately).
24-Bit/192kHz Asynchronous USB Input: The Peachtree decco65
is equipped with a USB (type-B) port to connect to your Windows PC or Mac
computer. It is capable of supporting up to 24-bit/192kHz high-resolution audio and uses the latest in asynchronous communication. Asynchronous allows
the decco65's's internal high-precision clock to control the flow of data coming
from the computer. This method lowers incoming jitter so the ESS Sabre DAC has
less timing errors to reclock. USB implementation is one of the more difficult
tasks in the real world of computer audio.
Note: You will need to install the included CD software (XMOS
Driver) download for 24-bit/192kHz playback on a Windows PC.
Digital Audio Inputs: The decco65 is equipped with one
optical (toslink) and two coaxial (RCA) digital inputs for connecting external
digital audio sources, such as a Blu-ray/DVD player, Sonos player, Sequeezebox,
Apple TV, or Apple Airport Express. The unit's optical digital input will accept
up to 24-bit/96kHz high-resolution audio, while the two coaxial digital input
will accept up to 24-bit/192kHz.
Analog Audio Inputs: The Peachtree Audio decco65 contains a set of
analog line-level RCA stereo inputs for connection to your SACD/CD player, AM/FM
tuner, turntable (requires Phono preamp, sold separately).
Speaker Terminals: The Peachtree Audio decco65 Integrated
Amp is fitted with four heavy-duty, gold-plated binding-post speaker terminals
to connect your left and right speakers. The binding-post speaker terminals can
accept bare wire (up to 10AWG), banana-plugs (single only), spade-connectors,
and pin-connectors. The unit's binding-post speaker terminals are clearly marked
red-positive and black-negative for proper polarity connections.
Pre-Out: The stereo RCA preamp-outputs allow you to use an
external amplifier with the decco65; they also provide connections for a powered
