For quite awhile we’ve embraced and advocated for the new age of digital music delivery technologies, home theater surround sound systems, and quality audio components. But frankly, sometimes these devices are not even delivering the performance and quality levels that we enjoyed when listening to vinyl and CDs on vintage home stereos. The internal generic DAC – or Digital to Analog Converter – in all digital music devices – iPod, iPhone, iPad – is the culprit. If you’re using ear buds you may be satisfied with the mediocre fidelity of iPods and other portable digital audio video devices. But when listening through a quality home stereo system, we need to elevate the level of sonic performance from our iPods, computers, and digital audio streamers. The solution we often recommend here at PAC-NJ, northern New Jersey’s source for home theater and audio video equipment and installation, is the Peachtree Audio Dac-it. Simply put, the Dac-it is a high performance Digital to Analog converter designed to bypass the generic DAC in your digital music device. The Peachtree Dac-it will supercharge your music experience when listening to digital sources including Apple TV, Sonos and ITunes. Digital inputs include coaxial, optical, and 42/96 USB. For any music lover who already owns a great home audio video or home stereo system, the Peachtree iDac is an ideal solution. The iDac plugs into any aux or standard analog stereo input on your existing home stereo amplifier or pre amp. Then just drop your IPod into the built in dock. The magic that takes place is attributable to the pure digital connection between your IPod and the iDac. The results will astound you. The same sonic improvement can be enjoyed from other digital audio video sources that you may also want to connect to your killer music system, just as with the Dac-it. The iDac also has digital audio inputs including coaxial, optical, and USB to accommodate all of the aforementioned digital music sources. For those who are ready for a completely new home stereo and audio system, Peachtree also offers the same great iDac product, but with a built in audiophile grade integrated amp with optional speakers. So if you’ve been listening to portable music devices on your home stereo without bypassing the generic DACs, it’s time to listen up!
