A next-generation integrated amplifier for digital and analog music lovers

Peachtree Audio, a leader in high-end digital audio gear, raises the bar with its new generation of nova integrated amplifiers. The nova150 can accommodate nearly any audio source you can think of, from a turntable to an iPhone®. It even has a discrete amplifier for headphone listening. Designed by a team of world-class engineers and manufactured right here in North America, this stylish integrated amplifier continues Peachtree's tradition of making products that sound every bit as good as they look.

An improved amplifier and premium DAC for high-resolution audio enjoyment

The nova150 uses a new ICEpower® amplifier for lower distortion, less noise, and a simplified overall design. Musical and dynamic, this powerful amplifier can drive just about any set of speakers, since it puts out 150 watts per channel and handles impedances down to 2.5 ohms. Its built-in ES9018K2M Sabre32 Reference digital-to-analog converter delivers precisely detailed sound with a wide range of digital audio signals, all the way up to 32-bit/384kHz PCM and 5.6MHz DSD.

All music sources are welcome

For digital music sources, the nova150 offers an asynchronous USB input for a computer, along with a coaxial input and two optical inputs that accommodate signals up to 24-bit/192kHz. There's even a dedicated asynchronous USB input for a direct digital wired connection to Apple Lightning devices. Use the cable that came with your iPhone or iPad® to connect your device and listen to your music and apps with the nova's superior processing and sound quality. The included remote lets you control playback and skip tracks on any compatible app. You get analog connections for old-school music sources, too. For vinyl lovers, there's a moving magnet (MM) phono input for a direct turntable connection.

Convenient customizability

The nova150 has Peachtree's sought-after Home Theater Bypass (HTB) feature for easy integration with a multichannel preamp/processor or A/V receiver. With HTB, the nova150's power amplifier drives the front left and right speakers of your home theater. This frees up your receiver to drive the center and surround speakers more efficiently while improving sound quality for your front speakers. The Volume Control Bypass feature puts the Nova150 into "power amp" mode, letting you control volume from a knob or slider on your favorite device or app.

Headphone fans, take note

The nova150 has a discrete, low-impedance headphone amplifier that brings brilliant sound to just about any headphones out there. The speakers and preamp outputs are automatically muted when you plug your headphones in, and the volume knob becomes a headphone volume controller. The system reverts back to an integrated amplifier as soon as you unplug your headphones.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

My Bose 901 speaker system never sounded so awesome.It was a little shaky at first,but a very savvy technician,Christian,at Peachtree had me adjust the treble slider and everything became beautiful .At first I thought that the Nova150 would be over kill,but no,I could never settle for any other amplifier.

Pros: Awesome sound, Awesome quality,Awesome people at Crutchfield and Peachtree!!!

Cons: Nothing against!

Easy on the ears and the eyes!!!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

What a great integrated amp. I was sold before I ever hooked it up or heard it. It looks great in any environment and definitely passes the spouse test. I was looking for something that met these criteria: 1. Looks good - I own enough black boxes 2. 100+ Watts per channel 3. Subwoofer connection 4. Digital & Analog inputs I have it set up with KEF LS50's and a JL Dominion 110. I use it 100% for music and mostly use TIDAL via a Sonos Connect. This setup is in my dining room and is completely overkill for listening to music while we eat but I wouldn't have it any other way. It is very versatile and works well with any gear you want to hook up to it. Sound - It has a very "musical" sound to it, very warm and natural sounding. I have an old Marantz 2238b that needs to be repaired. This is cleaner and more detailed but still has a warmth that I love my other A/V receivers and processors just don't produce. I am a very casual about my music. I want equipment that just sounds good while we're doing every day stuff around the house. I don't have a listening room or even know what reference level is but I know great quality and the Peachtree NOVA 150 is it. It does everything I ask of it with great ease and style.

Pros: Aesthetics, ease, sound quality, connections

Cons: none so far

Peachtree Audio Nova 150 PB

david from Washington on 12/20/2017

I have been through two of these, each lasted 2 - 3 months. First one was a complete hard failure of the entire digital input side (coax, usb, optical). Second one is intermittent, relay kicks off, no sound, and a power cycle is required for the amp to work again. Becomes more frequent the longer the amp is on. Peachtree was great with the first amp (although they asked me to do a lot of testing and troubleshooting for them on my own time and $). The second one has been a different story. Delays in answering e-mails, excuses about being busy, being a small company, their move (which happened 3 months ago), general run-around about wanting me to do a bunch of testing again with inputs and output sources that I don't own, or intend to ever use. They tried to blame my (digital) source, despite the connectivity used being THEIR suggestion for the second amp, and was different than the first. Then tried to blame firmware...but they had no record of what firmware went out on any device, nor any way to query for that info. Firmware update procedure per their documented instructions do not work (not sure if this is another problem with this particular amp, or a more general issue). Looks good, sounded good when it worked, on paper it is great....but quality (product and people) at Peachtree is lacking. Buyer beware

Pros: Looks nice.

Cons: 2 -3 month lifetime before amp dies

Great product

Steve from Dallas, TX on 11/24/2017

Replaced a NAD A/V receiver that I loved with the Peachtree. The Peachtree is the perfect replacement for my needs, which is primarily playing records. It is a great match with my Rega turntable and my records sound amazing. I also love being able to plug in my IPhone for CD quality sound. It has all the connections - and more - that I need and I really could not be happier.

Pros: Pretty much everything. Really good remote control in my opinion.

Cons: The loudness control could be improved with more detail regarding the level. A numerical gauge would be nice. Not a big deal though.

Image, detail, momentum, drive, and fun

Darrin from Florissant, MO on 10/10/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Fantastic. I have a turn table (Rega RP1) and tube phone amp ( Parks Audio Budgie) as well as a Cambridge Audio CXN (LOVE THE CXN) . I also have my television (DirectTV and Apple tv) running thru a Cambridge Audio 752 Blue Disc player. My digital music is so smooth thru the KEF LS50's and this amp helped LS50's find bit more base. Listening to Wynton Marsalis Quartet feat. Dianne Reevesit is just like Dianne and me are on a first name basis . She is in the center image , Through out the song Wynton Marsalis is on the left side of the image at the front of the left channel and Dianne Reeves in the center . Toward the end of the song when Dianne is singing and Wynton is on the horn Dianne Reeves stays in the center instead of being cut out of the left cannel and sounding like she was transported to the right side of the stage . an improvement over the av reciever Listening to Supertramp Bloody Well Right after the the piano the sound stage expands beyond the boundries of the speakers....very nice . Listening to the song MORE by Sisters of Mercy off the Vision Thing CD at the 307 mark of the play back the word undemanding is echoed a detail I never heard until now. The image does not have very much depth but image is not everything . This leans toward the bass side and delivers pretty good momentum and drive - fun to listen to. lovin it.

Pros: The nova has a bit of everything. Good image left to right of the sound stage love to show off its ability to render detail . on some song which are made to push the sonics into the sound stage ( the beginning of bloody well right for example) the sound stage expands beyond the speakers placement this was real impressive . looks great.

Cons: would of liked a more holographic image . this is no big deal at this price and a tube buffer in the loop out may get some depth in the image. my second knock against this amp is only 1 rca input but this input can be changed to a home theatre by pass . which means in the future if i want to i could buy a tube preamp and use the nova as an amp.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This thing is excellent. My second Peachtree product -- I upgraded from their original Nova, and this is a huge improvement. Wider soundstage, deeper bass, and clear improvements from the newer generation amp and DAC. Looking forward to adding a turntable. But at the same time, this is a no-brainer if most of your music is digital.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Beautiful design. Quality DAC for use with my Carbon DC Project Turntable. I also love the ability to stream digital from my iPhone. Using with my NHT 1.4 towers and sound is great.



Sounds great, looks great but lacks power.

Crutchfield customer from Santa Cruz, CA on 1/6/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Sounds great which was primary objective but amp doesn't produce as much volume as I was hoping. I may need to add a pre-amp. I don't use the DAC because there is no way to navigate the input device through the Peachtree. (I'm currently using FLAC files on an external hard drive and I'd have to switch to something with a screen.) Retro look adds an interesting element. Size is small compared to Home Theater type receivers so that makes set up look sleek which I appreciate.



Not impressed

Thomas from Rossmoor, California on 12/15/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Returned it. I was not impressed. There were very few features to this amp. I wanted inputs for a record player, CD player, tv, and Android phone. There are not enough inputs to accommodate. The volume control is not user friendly. Unable to identify the exact volume. Basically, only 8 volume settings. The sound was good but wasn't for me. Very basic features. Looks sleek though. I replaced it with the nad c388. Very happy with that.

Pros: Looks good. Good sound.

Cons: Very basic. Minimal inputs. Volume control is awkward. Can't customize anything about it.

Possibly best value for an integrated amplifier currently

Babs from Rosemount, MN on 9/13/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have owned dozens of amps/pre-amps and integrated amps. I was in need of downsizing, and wanted everything in one-box without moving to a receiver (2-channel set-up). I liked the B&O class-D amplifier sound from my Bel Cantos, but preferred class-A/B of McIntosh and Bryston. Everything I read indicated the latest iteration of the B&O class-D modules utilized in the Nova 150 was world-class. Also, the Nova has the best version of ESS Sabre's DAC in the Nova 150 (the Nova 500 will have a newer/better ESS DAC). I have tons of vinyl, so wanted phono capability. Finally, I have many HDTracks Hi-Resolution audio files that will only play from iTunes via USB out on the computer to a USB DAC (AppleTV down-samples them). I have owned many inefficient speakers (four different Magnepan speakers over the years), but today own very efficient Klipsch RP-280F. After significant research, there are only a handful of integrated amplifiers that would meet my needs. What can I say? I was blown away by the sound of the smooth, dead-quiet, detailed, rich, dynamic sound played through the Nova 150. The DAC is incredible and the amplifier is plenty powerful with Klipsch. Sure, the Nova 300 will offer more power, but only needed if you have inefficient speakers. The Nova 500 will be incredible. For the price, I challenge anyone to find more features and better sound in as attractive of a unit as the

Pros: - Dead quiet - Resolution - Dynamics (check the Damping Factor in specs!) - Clarity - Control - Realism - Appearance - Simplicity - 2 Optic/Coax/USB A&B Digital Connections (several!) - Phono - Nice / simple remote that controls basic functions of iPhone or iTunes (play, pause, forward, back)

Cons: - No phono "fine-tuning" controls - Would like 3 Optic inputs ideally - Would like HDMI for audio-only purposes (and video pass-through)

Product Research


Integrated Amplifier: The Peachtree Audio nova150 integrated amplifier combines an ES9018K2M SABRE32 Reference DAC, ICEPower amplification, discrete headphone amplifier, and a MM Phono input circuit. Its combination of high output power, transparent sound, and digital and analog connectivity make it simple to enjoy all of your music with uncompromising sound quality.

ESS Reference 9018K2M Sabre32 DAC: The nova150 utilizes the highly regarded ES9018K2M SABRE32 Reference DAC. The ES9018K2M SABRE32 Reference DAC is capable of accepting an extremely wide range of inputs all the way up to 32-Bit/384kHz PCM and 5.2MHz DSD (double-DSD). The DAC exhibits exemplary dynamic range, jitter elimination and low noise characteristics to satisfy even the most demanding listeners.

ICEPower Amplification: The nova150 incorporates the latest generation of ICEPower amplification, with an impressive 150 watts per channel. The amplifier utilizes ICEpower's innovative and patented Hybrid Controlled Oscillation Modulator (HCOM) feedback and control techniques to ensure high output, wide bandwidth, low noise, robust stability and a simplified overall design. HCOM incorporates separate feedback loops after the power stage and after the output filter. This lets the system address specific issues related to the power stage and output filter independently, resulting in lower distortion, less noise on the output, a less load-dependent frequency response, and a very low output impedance compared to other class D amps. This new amplifier technology is extremely powerful, dynamic, quiet and most importantly - musical. Relatively small size and superior efficiency allows the nova chassis that is even smaller than its predecessors, without the large, heavy and expensive heat sinking common in class A/B amplifiers. The amplifier in the nova150 is capable of driving an extremely wide range of speakers with impedances as low as 2.5Ω and as high as 16Ω. Combine that with a power output of 150 watts per channel and you can be sure this new nova will easily drive your favorite loudspeaker.

Extensive Power Supply & Grounding Design: The nova150 utilizes an extensive power supply and grounding design to ensure the noise floor is pushed as far down as possible to allow the music to shine through. Peachtree's engineers spent hours upon hours determining the optimal power supply filtering and grounding scheme to prevent any unwanted noise from finding its way into the signal path. As a result, the nova150 achieves a remarkable dynamic range and signal-to-noise ratio. Turn up the nova150 to full volume without music playing, put your ear to the speaker and enjoy the lack of noise.

Asynchronous USB Inputs: The Nova150 includes an asynchronous USB-B for a computer and an asynchronous USB-A for Apple iOS devices with Lightning connector. The USB-A port also features exclusive Peachtree DyNEC (Dynamic Noise Elimination Circuit) technology.

  • USB-B Input for Computer Audio (Windows or Mac): The Nova150's asynchronous USB-B input allows direct digital connection to your Windows or Mac computer for PCM and DSD audio playback. Asynchronous technology allows the digital clock inside Nova150 to control the flow of data coming from your computer. This method of communication leads to less jitter (timing errors) for the unit's ESS Reference Sabre32 DAC to deal with which results in clearer more defined sound. The unit supports 16-32bit, 44.1-384kHz PCM music files and 2.8824-5.6448MHz, 1-bit DSD music files. For playback of files above 96kHz, Windows requires installation of Peachtree Audio's USB 2.0 driver on your PC before it will be compatible.
  • USB-A Input for Apple iOS Lightning Devices (w/ DyNEC): The Nova150 includes a dedicated asynchronous USB-A connection on the rear-panel that provides a direct digital wired connection to Apple iOS Lightning equipped devices. The exclusive Peachtree DyNEC (Dynamic Noise Elimination Circuit) eliminates all audible power supply and screen noise that can be created by plugging in an Apple iOS device. Once all sources of noise are eliminated, music files are "handed off" to our internal ESS SABRE32 Reference DAC - further improving performance via asynchronous connection, and eliminating any timing errors caused by jitter. With DyNEC and an asynchronous connection, Peachtree's dedicated iOS input lets you hear your music with all the clarity, dynamics and emotion the artist intended. Simply use the cable that came with your iPod touch, iPhone, or iPad and enjoy the music and apps of your mobile device with the DAC and sound quality of the Nova150. Compatible with the following Apple iOS Lightning equipped devices - iPod touch (5th gen and newer), iPhone (5 and newer), & iPad (Air/mini/Pro). Make sure your Apple device has the latest iOS version installed.

Optical/Coaxial Digital Inputs: The Nova150 is equipped with two optical (toslink) and one coaxial (RCA) digital inputs for connecting external digital audio sources such as your Blu-ray/DVD player or cable/satellite box. The optical and coaxial digital inputs support up to 16-24bit, 44.1-192kHz PCM 2ch audio.

Phono Input: The nova150 includes a moving magnet (MM) phono input for direct connection of a turntable. This custom designed Phono input circuit accommodates a wide range of MM cartridge outputs. With the nova150 you no longer need an external phono preamp unless you are using a lower output moving coil (MC) cartridge. In that case, the internal phono preamp in the nova150 can be bypassed, allowing the phono input to accept line-level signals from a dedicated phonoa preamp or any other line-level device.

Discrete Headphone Amp: The nova150 is outfitted with a newly designed, discrete low-impedance headphone amplifier. It can easily drive any headphones on the market, and drive them well. The signal-to-noise ratio of the circuitry will impress even the most die-hard headphone enthusiast. When you plug headphones in, the speakers and preamp outputs are automatically muted and the volume knob becomes a dedicated headphone volume controller. Unplug the headphones, and the system reverts back to being an integrated amplifier. The nova150 is fitted with a full-size 1/4" headphone jack on the front-panel.

Binding-Post Speaker Terminals: The unit's binding-post speaker terminals are clearly marked red-positive and black-negative for proper polarity connections. The amplifier's binding-post speaker terminals will accommodate bare wire (up to 10AWG), banana plugs (single only), & pin-connectors. Use speakers with a nominal impedance between 2.5-16Ω.

Home Theater Bypass (HTB): Home Theater Bypass (HTB) allows for easy integration with a multi-channel preamp/processor or audio/video receiver, so that the power amplifier in the nova150 drives the front left and right speakers for stereo and multi-channel listening. The nova150 amplifier section is likely more powerful and better sounding than many AV receiver available today, and relieving the AVR from driving the front left and right speakers makes it much easier for the receiver to drive the center and surround speakers. When listening to stereo music the nova150 becomes your control center, and you can enjoy the full benefit of its reference DAC and ultra-low-noise circuitry. If the HTB input isn't needed it can be configured as a standard analog line-level input.

Input/Output Loop & Preamp Output: The nova150 includes an extremely useful loop (output/input) feature, allowing you to add an external tube buffer, equalizer or other processor into the signal path as desired. The LOOP button on the remote control engages and disengages the loop audio path utilizing high-performance relays. The stereo RCA preamp-outputs allow you to use an external amplifier with the Nova150; they also provide connections for a powered subwoofer.

Volume Control Bypass ("Power Amp Mode"): The nova150 provides a Volume Control Bypass feature on its digital inputs which puts the nova150 into a "power amp" mode. This is particularly useful if you have a connected source with its own volume control. For example - if you have a favorite device or app with a volume slider built right into the interface, simply bypass the nova150 volume control for that input and use the app slider instead.

Remote Control: The nova150 comes supplied with an IR remote control for wireless operation of the integrated amplifier. The remote control offers the same functions as the nova150's front-panel controls, plus adds a mute button and basic playback control (Play/Pause & Previous/Next Track) for your connected Apple iOS Lightning equipped device. The remote is powered by two "AAA" batteries (supplied). The remote control IR sensor is located in the center of the nova150's front-panel. The integrated amp also includes a rear-panel IR input & 12V trigger output.

  • IR Input: The IR input (3.5mm) accepts input from an Infrared (IR) repeater/distribution system.
  • 12V Trigger Output: The 12V trigger output (3.5mm) enables power on/off control of another component with a 12V trigger input.

Optional Accessories: Peachtree Audio offers an optional Bluetooth receiver and WiFi module (both sold separately) for the nova150 integrated amplifier, so you can enjoy wireless audio playback.

  • Bluetooth Receiver: The Peachtree BT1 add-on Bluetooth music receiver (731BT1, sold separately) enables wireless connection of your Bluetooth-enabled devices (such as your Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad, Android smartphone/tablet, Windows PC, Mac computer, etc.) to the nova150 integrated amplifier. Now, you will be able to listen to music files and music apps from your Bluetooth-enabled devices through the nova150. The BT1 Bluetooth receiver can plug into the nova150's stereo RCA analog input or optical digital input.
  • WiFi Module (Coming Soon): The nova150 was designed to accommodate Peachtree's add-on Wi-Fi module (sold separately), which is currently under development (no ETA). Peachtree engineers have even reserved an input button on the front-panel for it. This will allow you to stream audio directly into the nova150 without the need for connecting any wires.

Q & A

Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

I have owned a Peachtree iDecco for about 8 years. I recently added a Sonos connect and a couple of speakers. An amazing amp esp. for digital music but adding the Connect really drained power from my high end with its 40W per channel. Decided to upgrade and for the money no better amps than the Peachtree. I think that the Nova 150 will suit my needs perfectly. [ Dennis  Jan 06, 2018 ]
Great young company with name recognition. The Sabre DAC and additional connections were very impressive, plus it is a good looking piece! [ Robert  Dec 12, 2017 ]
Design, Power, Inputs supported and flexibility [ Craig  Dec 07, 2017 ]
The combination of inputs is very well thought out. You can do a lot of things you might really want to do, and there aren't any silly features that no one would use. It's also a very good pre-amp, amp, and dac at a reasonable price. [ lewis  Jul 13, 2017 ]
The reviews are off the charts. Plus engineered for the digital streaming age. [ Patrick  Nov 22, 2017 ]
I'm a professional musician. If you buy any other amp then you will have bought an other amp. [ EVA  Mar 26, 2017 ]

2 questions already asked

Yes you can. On the back panel there is connection that will enable you to run sub woofer. Peachtree also has a very good technical back up that can answer your questions. [ Tag  Dec 16, 2018 ]
Yes you can. You hook it up through the preamp out on the peachtree, so the signal isn't processed by the internal amplifier. [ Daron  Dec 16, 2018 ]
The Nova has a Pre-amp output that you can connect to a powered subwoofer and control the volume thru the Nova. The Loop-out connectors can be used as a "Line-out" output, no volume control. I use that to run to another integrated amp for my rear speakers. The manual is available on the Peachtree website and they are also responsive to questions. [ Craig  Dec 16, 2018 ]
Yes.The manual nicely shows how to use the feature. It will use one of your two line-level inputs. In this mode, your Denon will send L/R main-channel signal to the Peachtree and those two speakers will be powered by the Nova150's amplifier (which is superior to the Denon AVR-2100W main channels). Also, whereas the other channels borrow electronics from elsewhere in the Denon (they are not truly, fully discrete channels), the Denon will have less strain for the remainder of channels and your system should sound better. When you're not using the Denon (ie, not watching TV or movie) and just want two-channel stereo, you'll be using other inputs on the Nova150. Bottom line, yes, you can use it, it is practical and would be an improvement for multi-channel in your current set-up. [ Brent  Jan 15, 2018 ]
