    Default Peachtree Audio Decco2

    This is a pretty cool unit - I was not sure what to expect... usually items with alot of features and flash kind of suck -

    Build quality is grade A, plenty of features - although I wish I had dual main outs versus a line out and main out....

    As far as sound quality - not really sure, I am running a Parasound amplifier and the Squeezebox - just on internet radio right now...

    It sounds good though, no doubt!

    Not a bad 2 channel, tube preamp, integrated amplifier with a DAC - cant beat it for $600 for a simple system!! :)

    Wow, I can't believe that thing is $600. You have to do more tests since you have all that sweet gear. I'd love to know how it sounds on it's own (you mentioned using the parasound amp).

    The amplifier is worthless on my speakers... I would have better luck powering them on a treadmill with a mouse...

    I will say with the Parasound it sounds pretty good - I will have to plug up my Klarheit II and do some serious listening comparisons...

    For the money I could not find anything with a tube pre stage + dac...

    Not to mention the thing is seriously a tank, everything is extremely tight fitting and crisp

    I will say this -

    I had the Klarheit II hooked up for a moment, running some test but I am still messing around with my rack and took it back out... oddly enough the Decco 2 and the Peachtree are on the same frequency for the remote... and the Klarheit II is 100% remote operated... made it very difficult! lol

    I threw in Blue Coast Audio Collection and just from initial tests I would say from a quick listen it is maybe 65-70% of the performance of my Candela/Stratos/Khartago combo... just from a presentation stand point - the soundstage was not near as wide or as defined... but the Peachtree is also not broken in.

    Will run the peachtree for a few weeks and revisit - but for $600 I do not think you can go wrong... the Candela/Stratos is about 5,000 in gear so... ya know ;)

    Change that russian stock tube to a nice Bugle Boy. It made a world of difference in mine. I have the original Decco on my CRS+ speakers. The amp has more than enough power for them. Sounds awesome.
