Recording engineers use near-field systems to mix because they take the room out of the equation. They allow you to hear deep into the soundstage and pick up minute detail. The high-end near-field experience is yours by simply adding a musicBox system to your desktop. Music is recreated like in the studio with a wide, deep, solid image.
The musicBox is the perfect choice anywhere you want great-sounding music without taking up a lot of space! So whether you're listening in your office, your den, your kitchen or your bedroom . . . try the musicBox. We think you'll love it!
PURE DIGITAL iPod Dock
You’ll be amazed when you plug your iPod into the musicBox’s built-in PURE DIGITAL iPod dock. Virtually all iPod docks today pass only the "analog" signal from your iPod. Not so with the musicBox! The musicBox sends the digital "1's and 0's" from your iPod directly to its own internal high performance DAC. That's why we call it PURE DIGITAL. And that's how your iPod - plus the musicBox - produces sound to rival high-end audiophile CD players.
When listeners marvel at the sound of the musicBox, much of the credit goes to its special vacuum tube preamplifier circuitry. Utilizing vacuum tube technology has been a hallmark of Peachtree's widely-acclaimed amplifiers, the Decco and the Nova. We could do no less in the musicBox! And just like the Decco and Nova, you can even see the tube peeking out of its front panel window, adding a nice visual "glow" when powered up. Speaking of "glow," we put the tube in the musicBox for exactly the reason we stated when we introduced our first product, the classic Decco amplifier: We love the sound!
Attention to Detail
The musicBox is small, and we rate its power output at a modest 20 watts per channel. Yet it always surprises first time listeners with its big, room-filling sound. The musicBox's MOSFET power amplifier stage and careful attention to details like these high-qualilty speaker binding posts are just some of the additional ingredients in the musicBox's "recipe for magic."
Three digital inputs. Component video out for sending your iPod videos to the big screen. Pre out for hooking up to an external high-power amplifier or for connecting a subwoofer. Analog input for "old school" sources like a tuner, tape deck, or turntable (phono preamp required). Heavy-duty main power switch (switch the musicBox to "standby" from the front panel or the remote). Removable AC power cord (no cheap "wall wart" here, and you can even experiment with aftermarket power cords if you want to get your audiophile groove on). Good things DO come in small packages!
For Your Ears Only
The musicBox has a terrific headphone section that’s lush and sweet. So if you’re stuck in a cubicle, or when you want to rock out late at night, the musicBox automatically mutes the speakers as soon as you plug in your 'phones. You also get the full benefit of the musicBox’s tube preamplifier section that sweetens harsh digital music (check out the glow behind the front panel window!). The great sound is your secret.
Created just for musicBox
You're free to use your favorite speakers with the musicBox - we're sure they'll sound great! But we wanted to create a speaker that would match the musicBox in offering really, really good sound in a very small space. The secret to the mB3 speaker's sound is its aluminum speaker cone - providing excellent transient response with low distortion. The "speed" of this aluminum-coned driver - coupled with a rigorous design process - allowed us to utilize only this single drive unit in the mB3. The result is a wonderfully coherent and "real" sound.
The mB3 speakers are complete with matching stands, so you can set up your speakers vertically or horizontally. Quality binding posts are also included.
To assist the mB3 in reproducing lower bass notes, Peachtree designers engineered a bass equalization circuit matched to the frequency response of the mB3. Engage the Bass EQ switch for more bass when using the mB3's; switch it out of the circuit if you're using large speakers or a subwoofer. Bonus: Even though engineered for the mB3's response characteristics, we've found the musicBox's Bass EQ function complements most small speakers!
