  • The Peachtree amp500 features a staggering 500 watts per channel into 8 ohms and drives speakers all the way down to 2.5 ohms and up to their full potential. It features a custom designed, class-A input stage and balanced and unbalanced inputs for compatibility with virtually any preamplifier or music source. The amp500 is housed in the same beautiful chassis and cabinetry as our award-winning nova series of amplifiers.

    Imagine Your Music Emerging from a Black Background
    In the past, big powerful amplifiers have been great for dynamics and solid bass but often at the expense of noise. In the amp500, Peachtree has achieved a high signal to noise ratio AND a very high power level with both soft musical passages and huge dynamic crescendos seeming to emerge from a black background. It’s rare to find an amplifier this powerful and with a dynamic range capability of 123dB (127dB A-weighted). When a rim shot from a snare drum lifts you from your seat, that’s what this kind of power can do in your system. When the cannon from the 1812 Overture has the impact you’d expect at a live performance you realize that tons of power simply makes it sound more real. Yet at the same time you’ll get a nice delicate balance with a solo acoustic guitar or violin. High power and a high signal to noise ratio is what it’s all about.

    Peachtree Audio's amp500 is a stand alone power amplifier based on the amplifier section of the nova500
    It recreates the natural power and dynamics of live music with ease, and features a fully balanced topology that is extremely musical and faithful to the source material. The amp500 includes balanced and unbalanced inputs, a discrete class-A buffer stage and low-noise linear voltage regulators for input circuits. The amp500 effortlessly drives the wide range of high-performance speakers available today.
