Peachtree Nova300 Drivers & Firmware Download

Peachtree Nova300 Firmware Download. The Peachtree Nova 300 is a stereo model capable of delivering up to 300 Watts in 8 Ohms and 450 Watts in 4 Ohms, thanks to B & O ICE Power power modules.
Peachtree Nova 300: made for iPhone
Very functional, the Peachtree Nova 300 amp is distinguished by a complete connectivity, which includes MM phono input, analog RCA and digital S / PDIF and USB. In other words, this amplifier can connect a wide range of sources, the  turntable to the computer, not to mention the iPhone. The front USB input is also associated with a filter to expell the digital signal emanating from the smartphone of any parasite.
Peachtree Nova 300: pre-out and direct in
Formerly equipped with an electronic tube, the preamp section of the Peachtree Nova 300 has been completely redesigned. In order to maintain the exceptional signal-to-noise ratio at the input, the tube has therefore been abandoned. However, Peachtree has equipped the Peachtree Nova 300 with a monitor loop to insert a stereo equalizer between the preamp and amplification section. An external module with electronic tubes should be proposed later. This monitoring loop opens up other perspectives, such as enjoying a pre-out stereo output to pair the Peachtree Nova 300 with a power amplifier. Or use the Peachtree Nova 300 as a power amplifier, for example with a home theater amp with pre-out outputs.

Peachtree Nova 300: DAC 32/384 and DSD
The Peachtree Nova 300 amplifier features a DAC ESS Saber 9018K2M, a digital-to-analog converter well known for its analytical qualities. It supports PCM stereo audio streams up to 24-bit and 192 kHz and DSD 5.6 MHz. Thus, a computer can be associated with the Nova 300, in order to read absolutely all the music. S / PDIF inputs can be associated with any CD, Blu-ray, or network player, to take advantage of the built-in DAC\’s conversion qualities.
With 450 W of power and an ability to handle impedances less than 4 Ohms. There are so few speakers that the Peachtree Nova 300 can not animate. Finally, the headphone output is powerful, with 330 mW 300 Ohms, enough to calmly consider an association with the majority of hi-fi headsets on the market.
