I have upgraded my amp from a relatively modest Marantz PM 6006 to a Peachtree Nova 300. I can report that the UB5 performs much better with the Nova. So if you are in the market for a new amp, more power is better. I also auditioned the elac integrated amp with the ub5 but I was not convinced. If there are other nova users with Elac, happy to connect.
Doesn’t the Peachtree Nova300 put out too much power for the UB5s? Would a Nova150 work any better or worse? I keep reading a lot of conflicting information online. It would seem the wattage put out by the Nova300 is more than the UB5s could handle, same with the Nova150, for that matter.
