Product Description

Peachtree Audio iDAC - The World’s First Digital iPod Dock and DAC in a Single Chassis

High-Resolution 32bit, 24bit/192k Multi-Input DAC with Pure Digital iPod Dock. The iDAC is Also Gorgeous!

The iDAC wins a Stereophile Magazine Class-A Recommended Component Award for 2011!

The new iDac from Peachtree Audio is the world’s first audiophile-grade iPod source component. Really, it's a digital iPod dock and world-class DAC in a single chassis. The digital iPod dock allows the music in your iPod to sound its best, while using the iPod as a full-blown music server.

Digital-to-analog conversion is handled by the newest 32bit ESS Sabre DAC, considered by many audiophiles as the best digital-to-analog chipset available. Jitter is non-existent with this new DAC, which accepts 24bit/96k files over USB and 24bit/192k files over a coaxial (S/PDIF) connection. The ESS Sabre DAC is specially designed to ensure that computer-based digital files come out sounding as rich and as natural as a live music experience.

“If you’re looking for more honest sound and features like an iPod dock, I recommend the iDAC…a DAC is a about transparency and control, and the Peachtree iDAC’s sound was the most honest of all the DACs we’ve heard that cost a grand or less. With its excellent sound, extra inputs, iPod dock, remote control, and attractive price, Peachtree Audio’s iDAC is a solid audiophile value. A product well thought out and well executed!”
- John Iverson, Stereophile, October 2011

Virtually every digital product you can think of will connect to the back of the iDac, and you can scroll through the inputs with your hand-held remote control. You don’t see many DACs with remote controls these days. The iDAC’s non-oversampling filters result in the smoothest, most analog-like digital presentation you’ve ever heard. So now you can feel free to dock your iPod, or your friend’s iPod (or iPhone), into the iDac and know you are hearing the best sound quality possible. Highly recommended!

“With a high-definition digital signal the iDac can create an almost holographic soundstage. In imaging palpability and dimensional definition the iDac pretty much disappeared. I wasn’t listening to the iDac as much as listening through it. This is one sonically serious DAC whose performance transcends its name!” 
- Steven Stone, The Absolute Sound, July/August 2011

About the New ESS Sabre DAC:

The heart of the iDac—what propels the iPod and any other digital sources to a new level—is the brand new ESS 32 bit Sabre32 digital-to-analog converter. It’s engineered for real-world sources that often deliver a high-jitter signal— computers, iPods, cable boxes, Apple TV, Sonos, etc. Almost anything digital. The iDac will also improve the digital output from most any standard CD or DVD player. While most DACs on the market were developed to handle low-jitter signals—the digital output of a good CD player, for example—the iDAC will greatly improve the sound from less-than-perfect sources.

This new ESS Sabre DAC uses a multi-layer DAC board with over 450 components, a linear power supply and 11 regulated sub-power supplies—preventing noise and distortion at every level. Its patented jitter-reduction circuit re-clocks the digital signal before passing it through a high-resolution 24bit/192kHz bit-perfect processor. Re-clocking is needed for computers and most streaming or hard-drive based music servers because most have high levels of jitter and/or noise. The USB connection is galvanically isolated, eliminating noise generated by your computer’s switching power supply and greatly improving sound quality. This new DAC sounds phenomenal!
