Works for Home and Travel

With 2 sets of USB in and a line out, use it by your desk with your computer, line out to your stereo, or driving any headphone on the road.

The Peachtree shift’s headphone amplifier is an ultra-low-noise design that can power any headphone - from sensitive in-ear monitors to power-hungry over- the-ear models. With shift’s dedicated amplifier driving your headphones, you’ll be able to hear your music with superior transparency, imaging, detail and bass response. To help achieve this level of performance, each subsystem within shift’s multi-layer circuit board has been designed to operate with the lowest overall noise floor and distortion, in addition to extensive use of noise isolation techniques to minimize interaction between subsystems.
Shift’s 32-bit/384kHz ESS SABRE32 DAC will make all of your music sound great from lossy compressed files to lossless uncompressed files and everything else in-between. It is compatible with high-resolution music files all the way up to and including 32-bit/384kHz PCM and 5.6MHz Direct Stream Digital (aka double-rate DSD or DSD128)! shift is an asynchronous design featuring two internal clocks that minimize jitter from the source device at all sampling rates. shift also includes an extensive power supply circuit design with multiple stages of regulation and ESS’s patented Hyperstream Modulator and Minimum Phase filters to create natural, lifelike sound from all of your digital files.

Shift uses a microprocessor driven analog volume control that works with the volume buttons and sliders on your smartphone, tablet or personal computer. The variable output mode on shift is ideal when connected to headphones or powered speakers that don’t include their own volume control. The fixed output mode turns shift into a high-performance USB DAC for your Hi-Fi system. Simply connect a 3.5mm-to-stereo RCA adaptor from the shift’s output and feed any available line-level analog input.

With DyNEC and an asynchronous connection, Peachtree's dedicated iOS input lets you hear your music with all the clarity, dynamics and emotion the artist intended. So in addition to convenience, your iPhone or iPad can now be taken seriously as a high-end audio component.

In addition, Shift can trickle charge a connected iOS device. Push the power switch to the "on and charging" setting (battery icon) and it will start to top up your connected iOS device. It could be the difference between a functioning phone or not at the end of a long trip!
