Im adding onto my existing sonos system and want to achieve excellent sound quality. I'm thinking onwall speakers (totem tribe or something similar ) and looking for opinions on how to beat power them. An integrated amp from peachtree - nova , looks interesting and almost made for sonos. Any thoughts on using the nova device or any other integrated amps that may work well to power decent onwall/inwall speakers for use with sonos. Budget around 1,000 or so.
Thanks

I've heard a couple of Peachtree systems and found them very impressive. If memory serves, the top system includes a subwoofer. I have not heard Nova yet.

If you can afford the Peachtree unit, you really can't do better. You can do something different, but you can't do better IMO. Considering your use of on wall speakers though, you might want to consider their less expensive DAC-it with a more conventional integrated amplifier or even a small T amp system.

The question was asked and answered in December. I'd imagine the Op has purchased something by now.
