This listing is for a MINT Hardly used Peachtree Audio iDecco Hybrid Vacuum Tube/Solid State Integrated Amplifier DAC with an iPod dock. It comes with a remote control and power cord. Worlds 1st Tube Hybrid Integrated Amp with PURE DIGITAL iPod Dock. The Peachtree Audio iDecco extracts the digital audio from your iPod and sends it directly to the iDecco's built-in high-performance ESS Sabre DAC. After the digital bitstream is converted to an analog music signal, it travels through the iDecco's class A tube-buffered preamplifier stage to a high-current, 40 watt per channel amplifier, ready to drive your speakers of choice.The iDecco is actually FIVE products in one. In addition, the iDecco provides a component video out connection so you can use your iPod as a New Millennium VCR and watch movies, TV shows and podcasts on your flat panel TV or monitor.
Lightning-connector iOS devices compatible with adapter: iOS devices with Lightning connector. An adapter available directly from Apple allows you to connect a Lightning-equipped iOS device to the iDecco's built-in dock.
The Perfect Desktop Audio Solution. If you sit at your desk listening to plastic speakers for long periods of time, the iDecco will transform your work space into high-end audio heaven.
Just plug your computer into the iDecco with a USB cable and use a matching pair of Peachtree Audio speakers. Well make you fall in love with your work space! Most iPod docks have analog outputs, forcing you to use the iPods internal power supply, DAC and output section. Not so with the iDecco. We send the PURE DIGITAL "1s & 0s" from your iPod directly to our Super DAC - so for the first time your iPod can really perform like a high-end CD player.
The heart of the iDecco - and what takes the iPod and your other digital sources to a new performance level - is its outstanding digital-to-analog converter. This DAC is the result of two years in development and many hours of critical listening. We employ the ESS 9006 Sabre DAC for digital processing. Our design uses a multi-layer DAC board with over 450 components and 11 regulated power supplies.
The ESS Sabre DACs patented jitter reduction circuit re-clocks the digital signal before passing it through a high-resolution 24bit/96kHz upsampling processor. This is perfect for computers and most streaming or hard-drive based music servers because most of them have high levels of jitter. Jitter, simply put, is digital timing error between the source and the DAC. The lower the jitter, the better the DAC sounds. Our DAC takes the re-clocked signal and upsamples it to achieve 24/96 resolution.
This transforms your iPod or just about any digital source to the performance of a high-end CD player. Even cheap transports and high jitter sources like computers and iPods now sound great because the iDecco thinks they're all high-end digital transports! The iDecco can deliver an astounding 118 dB signal to noise ratio, greatly extending dynamic range and your overall music experience with virtually all digital sources. Each digital input is transformer-coupled so noise associated with ground problems and switching power supplies from computers is eliminated. The USB connection is galvanically isolated, eliminating noise generated by your computers switching power supply and greatly improving sound quality.
The iDecco's preamplifier section employs a class A tube buffer with a 30 ohm output impedance - so if 40 watts per channel isnt quite enough power, you can hook up a separate, more powerful amplifier. The preamp maintains a high level of detail while also taming harsh, compressed digital music. The iDecco has a USB input for your computer, plus 1 coax and 1 optical input for other digital sources like Squeezebox, Apple TV or Airport Express, Sonos, and XM or Sirius tuners. It also has 1 analog input for a tape deck or phono preamp. For the headphone user the iDecco has a class A tube headphone section that rivals some of the best headphone amps available today.When headphones are plugged in, your speakers are muted so you can rock on when quiet is a necessity. Headphones have never sounded better than through the iDecco! Still more features and flexibility.
