I don't know why, the Peachtree is touted as a very nice DAC. That being said, you can use it for a varitey of sources that would bedifit from a high end DAC (like an I-Pod/Phone, computer, etc). I don't remember it having ourputs for an external amp...I'll have to look. For the money, there are much nicer pre-amps (with room correction software).

OK, a little research & is does have a stereo pre-out. So yes, you can use it with your Emotiva. What sources are you planning of feeding it with?

Hi cheers for the reply, I will be using my cambridge audio 540 cd player as a source and also my computer.
The peachtree im looking at is the older model and has a dac that can only cope with 96/24 as opposed to the new model which can do 192/24..I can get it for about 700 us dollars.

I set my buddy up with the nova running sf toys in a big room and it sounds great- don't spent for the sake of spending- not sure if your version has the saber dacs- I think they are a little bright but again, my opinion does not matter, your ears do.
