Parasound JC-2 BP [Expired]


no longer for sale

Parasound Halo JC2BP preamp by legendary designer John Curl of Vendetta Research, Mark Levinson and of course Parasound fame!  Balanced inputs and outputs, separate dual mono audio boards, high quality parts used throughout including Neutrik connectors and Canare internal wiring.  This unit was our demo unit and therefore Parasound warranty is in full effect. BP version is identical to the original but add theater bypass for anyone using it in a high performance theater as well.  Wonderfully detailed preamp, highly resolving and a bargain at it's original price of $4,000.
