Peachtree Audio iDecco -Int Amp, Pre Amp, Headphone Amp, DAC, Ipod Dock (Used) $499



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 . . .

  • PURE DIGITAL iPod Dock
  • Integrated Amplifier
  • Class A Tube Preamplifier
  • Stand-Alone Multi-Input DAC
  • Class A Headphone Amplifier

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.
