Parasound Ships Halo Integrated Amplifier
Parasound has announced that its Parasound Halo Integrated Amplifier, its new high-end 2.1-channel integrated amplifier and digital audio converter, is now shipping to dealers.
The 160-watt per channel integrated amplifier, the company said, "drives high-end loudspeakers with authority and accuracy, using the same Class A/AB circuits found in Parasound's renowned separate power amplifiers."
"Creating the Halo Integrated amp required Parasound to virtually redefine what a modern integrated amp should be," Richard Schram, Parasound's president and founder, said as part of the announcement.
"We went to great lengths to eliminate the power supply contamination that compromises the audio quality in some of the most expensive integrated amps. Finally, newly released parts from ESS enabled us to leap ahead with an all-new DAC, allowing the Halo Integrated to provide flawless reproduction of the highest resolution digital audio."
