Parasound Halo JC1 Mono Power Amplifier

parasound jc1

The Parasound JC1 is a premier monaural amplifier, with circuitry designed by the legendary John Curl and CTC Builder. Featuring an ultra-high bias Class A/AB operation, with exclusive two position bias level adjustment capability, the JC1 one has been described by Stereophile as “lightning-fast, delivering transients and sibilants with a speed and clarity that were positively addictive,” and a “bottom end that was equally impressive and subtly drawn”.
