Peachtree Decco amplifier supercharges the Sonos music streamer

decco_and_sonos.jpg

The Peachtree Decco is a tube-powered amplifier with a slot in the back for the Sonos ZP80 Wi-Fi music streamer. It can grab the digital stream directly from the Sonos and run it through its own DAC, which they claim is higher quality — and certainly backed by a higher power amp, at 50 watts per channel — than the one from the Sonos.

It’s $800.

    most gearheads don’t have a clue when it comes to audio. If it doesn’t sound any better to you listening to analog vs. lousy digital, don’t waste your money. Digital has come a long way, but don’t forget that most high-budget recording sessions like the Stones still use analog tape. There is a reason.

    A tube amp … for streamed MP3′s. I shake my head in abject wonder.

    OMG, it’s stupidly expensive monster cables for people using wireless! We can connect it with some of the $500/yard ethernet.

    And while we’re at it, let’s buy some Hardy Perfection 140 year old Cognac and use it to season our sharks fin soup.

    They could charge more if it would go “OM NOM NOM” when you inserted the Sonos…

    Hey JJasper, it’s a high quality tube amp. The Sonos doesn’t power speakers itself.
