Parasound a leading manufacturer of high performance audio/video components has started shipping its high-end Halo family’s JC 2 stereo preamplifier. John Curl and CTC Builders team jointly engineered Parasound Halo JC 2. You can purchase Parasound Halo at an MSRP of $4,000. The amplifier comes with an infrared remote control with buttons for on/off, DC trigger activation, polarity normal/invert, volume, mute, and source selection. You can also tune in to your favorite channel with FM/AM tuner. Parasound Halo JC 2 also equips RS-232 interface, four 12-Volt Triggers, and remote control repeater input and loop out jacks.
According to Parasound’s president, Richard Schram, “We conceived the Halo JC 2 in the spirit of the JC 1, commissioning John Curl to design a two-channel preamplifier without compromise. The resulting product achieves a higher level of sonic and measured performance than any preamplifier since Parasound was founded in 1981. The sound of the Halo JC 2 is alive with musical detail against a silent background that will give serious audiophiles both the opportunity and desire to re-explore their music collections.”
