The Integrated Amplifier… Reimagined
In 2007 Peachtree Audio introduced a new integrated amplifier that immediately and forever changed the amplifier landscape. This amplifier – our original Decco – was groundbreaking for its time. It had a unique industrial design with an aluminum front panel, a simple button and knob user interface and a rounded wood case finished with beautiful veneers. Inside, it housed a class A/B power amplifier, a tube buffer visible through a window in the front panel and, most significantly, a USB input with built-in DAC to accept a direct connection from a Mac or PC! “Computer audio” was born, with Peachtree’s Decco and Nova amplifiers on the leading edge, and with computer audio a defining part of Peachtree’s identity.
We now introduce nova 2.0 . . . a completely new generation of Peachtree integrated amplifiers that reimagines the original concept and takes it to an even higher level. Nova 2.0 is the culmination of everything we’ve learned as a leader in computer audio, plus a few new things we hadn’t gotten to – until now!

We take great pride in what we have accomplished with the new nova300. It accommodates virtually every type of music source people use today, from spinning vinyl at home to streaming audio from the cloud. We’ve ushered in an impressive new suite of technological advancements – from the DAC through the power amplifier and at every step in between. This new nova is designed around tried and true audio engineering philosophies to ensure exceptional sound quality and superb measured performance across the board. The new novas are truly the most beautiful and exceptional sounding products we have ever made and are every bit deserving of the designation nova 2.0. We hope you choose to make one a part of your musical life. We are confident that if you do, you will love it!
When will Wi-Fi be available for the nova150, nova300 and nova500?
We are working to complete the Wi-Fi module for the nova amplifiers and are currently in the testing phase. This is the final phase before it is released to production.
The nova platform was designed to deliver the best performing integrated amplifiers we know how to build – including the remarkable nova500 which will be shipping in November. We pride ourselves on offering products that perform well above their price point; in the case of the Wi-Fi module, this has taken longer than we anticipated in order to assure compatibility with all Peachtree Wi-Fi enabled products.
We anticipate the Wi-Fi option to be shipping in the first quarter of 2019.
We sincerely thank you for your patience.
