The Halo JC 5 is Parasound’s new, ultra-high performance, 400 watt per channel, Class A/AB, stereo power amplifier. We are very proud of this latest achievement of Parasound engineering in concert with legendary audio equipment designer John Curl.
The Reason For Developing The JC 5
Parasound’s Halo JC 1 monoblock, designed by John Curl, is acknowledged as the ultimate benchmark for amplifier performance and value. Stereophile awarded it 2003 Amplifier of the Year and has honored it as a Class A Recommended Component for fifteen years – far longer than any other audio product.
For years, Parasound customers around the world have petitioned for an alternative amplifier: a John Curl-designed, Halo stereo power amplifier which would save them money and space. Developing a stereo amplifier in this league was a formidable challenge-the kind Parasound relishes. They challenged John Curl to distill the essence of two JC 1 monoblocks into a single chassis stereo amplifier with a more attractive price.
What They Achieved
The new Halo JC 5 stereo amplifier is profoundly powerful and supremely musical. John Curl’s signature appears discreetly on its front panel honoring his considerable role in its development. The JC 5 will delight the ears and wallets of serious audiophiles and music lovers alike. With exquisite performance and compelling value, the JC 5 is the new amplifier benchmark. We invite you in for a demo of this amazing new amplifier today!
