This is probably the most significant new product line in our store ever! After an absence of 10 years in Canada, Parasound is BACK in Canada. For a couple of years now, Pat has been badgering Parasound to bring their products back to Canada and has been instrumental in getting Parasound back to our market. Why is Pat so excited? The Parasound HALO HINT 6 is a truly full featured High-End Audio Integrated Amplifier with the latest High Resolution DAC build in. The Parasound HALO HINT 6 is designed by John Curl, the person who designed the first High-End Mark Levinson JC preamps which Pat sold in 1974. Since then, John Curl with Walter Jung, had built a tremendous data base on what and how each manufacturers’ electronic component sounds like. From by-pass caps to resistors to power supply capacitors, the widest spectrum of electronic components were carefully listened to and tested. These hand-picked components is what is found inside the Parasound HALO HINT 6 Integrated Amplifier. Some of them are the super high resolution ESS Sabre32 Reference DAC capable of DSD & 384kHz/32 bit PCM. A precision Ball Bearing supported Solid Aluminum Volume Knob ensures years of reliable use with precision Resistor Step Ladder Volume Control just like $125,000 preamps with improved Left/Right channel separation and balance tracking.

This is one integrated amplifier that the DIY audiophiles will not be able to modify to be better sound, why? Because John Curl wrote the book on parts selection, circuit layout, power supply designs in ultra High-End Audiophiles electronics I have not found an equal at any price up to $20,000, and yet this Parasound HALO HINT 6 Integrated Amplifier only sells for $4200. Wow, talk about High End Audio Value, this integrated amplifier will surely go down in history as the STEAL of the century for High End Audio. Hurry, before this integrated amplifier goes up in price.
