Up for sale is a mint condition Parasound Halo JC-2BP in Silver that I purchased from Audio Advisors in 2017.
I am only selling it because I put together two separate systems in my home and have since scaled back one and already have a JC-2BP (Black) in the other set up. If you are looking at Parasound and this unit, you already know that it is a top rated preamplifier that goes toe to toe with others that cost two to three times this price. This unit is ROCK SOLID and perfect - all original packaging, cords, including the trigger cords, remote and paperwork are included as is the very cool blue velvet drawstring bag for the unit. I wasn't going to sell this unit, but the time has come.
Now some history on the unit, purchased April 2017 from Audio Advisors as a MFG B-Stock (refurbished unit (conversation with Audio Advisors confirmed full warranty and that the unit was 100%)) usually meaning it was a sold and returned item but can't be claimed otherwise. First used with my McCormack DNA .1 amp and OPPO BDP-93 and feeding my B&W 804 D2's, from there it got to feed a pair of Parasound JC-1's and OPPO's new UDP-205, I bought a HALO P7 for the theater room so now this unit is available - it has maybe 100 hours on it and so for that reason only - I have rated it a 9/10.
This is your opportunity to save big (-$1495.00) from new! Don't delay as these do not come on the market often in this condition!
