At one time I compared the preamp + amp sections of the Peachtree Nova 150. I had this unit for about 3 years. I forgot how I did the separation of the different parts to test, but I know I did do that and came to the following conclusions:
- the preamp section is terrible
- I think I also thought the DAC was terrible
- the amp section was pretty good, though nowhere close to the Peachtree GAN1 that I mentioned above.
