The Peachtree Audio Carina GaN is a 200 watts-per-channel integrated amplifier incorporating the revolutionary GaN-FET technology found in the Peachtree GaN 1. It provides a musical path to your speakers that is remarkably direct and artifact-free.

The Peachtree Carina GaN accepts 5 digital inputs including Bluetooth plus an analogue input switchable between MM phono and AUX and will drive virtually any speaker with authority, dynamics and finesse.

What makes the Carina GaN Special?

First and foremost is the GaN-FET amplifier module. It has several inherent advantages in a power amplifier that even the best MOS-FET designs simply cannot achieve. A GaN-FET power stage provides a precise high-power reproduction of the Class-D PWM signal with extremely high linearity. This linearity eliminates the need for ANY feedback, ultimately allowing for the best possible audio quality providing clean, clear middle and high frequencies and a tight, solid reproduction of low frequencies.

GaN-FETs track the complex audio waveforms so much more accurately than MOS-FETs resulting in significantly more transparent and natural sound. The difference is something even a casual listener will hear and appreciate.

The Carina GaN is designed so that it does NOT even require a digital-to-analogue-converter (DAC) for its digital sources. The digital audio signal at the input of the Carina GaN directs the amplifier outputs to drive the speakers. Just a direct musical path from your digital source to your speakers. And for your analogue sources the Carina GaN utilises a high-end AKM analog to digital converter to achieve the cleanest path possible to the GaN-FET power module.
