The iNova takes the best from the award-winning Peachtree Audio Nova integrated amplifier and adds features and enhancements. The upgrades are notable if you want the very best performance from your iPod plus the best resolution possible for computer audio or from streaming devices like Apple TV, Sonos, and many others. The iNova features an 80-watt per channel amplifier, 'Class A' tube preamp, high-resolution DAC, 'Class A' headphone amplifier, and a 'Pure Digital' iPod dock. The Pure Digital dock bypasses the built in DAC of your Apple device, delivering nothing but 'ones and zeroes' from your iPod or iPhone directly to iNova's high resolution digital-to-analog converter. The built-in iPod dock isn't the only upgrade from the original Nova. The USB input supports 24/96 without the need of loading external drivers. The coaxial and optical inputs now support bit-perfect 24/192. The amplifier is beefed up with the best capacitors and has punchier bass and better high-end extension. Maybe the most unique and astonishing feature of the iNova is its onboard ESS9016 Sabre32 Ultra DAC. This 24/192 upsampling D/A converter transforms just about any digital source to the performance of a high-end CD player. The iNova features a 24/96 USB input for your computer, plus two coaxial and two optical inputs delivering up to 24/192 resolution for other digital sources like Squeezebox, Apple TV, Airport and Sonos. It also offers two analog inputs for docking stations, CD players, tape decks or phono preamps. The iNova preamplifier covers the bases like no other product! Peachtree then couples this with an 80-watt per channel ST MOSFET amplifier in the final stage, achieving a highly musical analog sound. The preamp section uses a 6N1P tube with a 'Class A' output stage. This is where art meets science, and there's a certain magic that solid state can't quite match. The tube maintains a high level of detail while taming harsh digital files regardless of the codec.
