Parasound HALO Reference JC2BP Preamplifier by John Curl
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 Reference Preamplifier by John Curl is truly one of the very best preamplifier you can obtain on the market with all the best quality parts, and designed properly to sound the best. The Parasound HALO Reference JC2BP Preamplifier 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 up a tremendous data base on what and how each manufacturers’ electronic component sounds like. Every 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 Reference Preamplifier by John Curl. For instance, you will find Hand-Matched Complimentary FETs in the circuitries, Premium 4-gang motor-driven master volume control with TKD brand analog gain controls for the best sounding volume control on the market. There are 3/8” thick aluminum shielding around audio circuit boards and Shielding in power supplies and control boards. The Aluminum cassis rear panel has Vampire Brand 24K gold RCA jacks, Neutrik Brand premium XLR connectors, etc. This is one Reference preamp that the DIY audiophiles will not be able to modify to be better sounding, 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 even at $125,000, and yet this Parasound HALO Reference Preamplifier by John Curl only sells for $6500. Wow, talk about High End Audio Value, this preamp will surely go down in history as the STEAL of the century for High End Audio. Hurry, before this preamp goes up in price.
