Our take on the Peachtree220 by Crutchfield's Woody Sherman
With a fine component like the Peachtree220 stereo power amplifier, fancy words aren't really necessary. It's Peachtree. And it delivers 220 watts per channel of pure, controlled power from an attractive, low profile package that they're proud to put their highly-regarded name on. If you've spent any time listening to Peachtree products at all, you'll know that we've said enough for you to make a sound decision.
But hey, since you asked, we'll tell you more things you'll want to know. Instantly available clean power is the spark that ignites your music, and the '220 has plenty of it. You'll notice cleaner imaging and more extension on both ends of the audio spectrum as your speakers have the power they need to reproduce demanding frequencies and dynamic range.
The '220 takes both balanced XLR stereo inputs and unbalanced RCA stereo inputs. Two sets of high-quality 5-way binding posts will host speaker cables with banana plugs or spades, or just bare speaker wire.
This amplifier features a Class D design which delivers crisp treble and floor-shaking bass. It runs cooler than many other amps. And if you run 4 ohm speakers, the 220 will give you an even more impressive 400 watts per channel.
For 33 years I have dreamed of owning a high end powerful amplifier. Turn up the volume and the sound is perfect. No distortion. Tremendous performance with Peachtree Nova Pre and and a pair of Definitive Technology Studio Monitor 65s and ProSub1000s. A truly invigororating experience!

Robert, It should work well. I have used the 220 with Paradigm 100s and Golden Ear Triton 2s, with great results with either pair of speakers. Both sets of speakers dip into the 4-ohm range at one or more frequencies, and the 220 handles this with aplomb. As for the sub output, that will be a preamp function [ CARL May 29, 2014 ]
You should not have a problem with a 6 ohm speaker since it supports both 8 & 4 ohm configs. No sub output on this unit. You can find additional info on the Peach tree site. [ STEVEN May 29, 2014 ]
