"Editors' Choice" Award, The Absolute Sound, 2007
"Rhythmically Right" THX Ultra 2-Certified Amp
Parasound's Halo A 23 stereo amplifier combines superior technology, incredible sound, advanced features, and attractive industrial design. With high current Class A/AB amplification, smooth sounding MOSFET drivers, and balanced XLR inputs, it will bring out the best in any source material from Franz Schubert to Spiderman.
The A 23 won the coveted "Editors' Choice Award" in the October 2007 issue of The Absolute Sound magazine, which calls it "musically involving."
"It was so rhythmically right," marvels Shane Buettner in The Absolute Sound. "The subtlest aspects of musical timing were always apparent..." According to Buettner, "I was impressed with the A23's resolution, which was really quite astonishing."
Auditioning the Halo A23 power amp and the P3 preamp together, Eric Hetherington writes in December 1, 2004 GoodSound! review, "I found the Parasounds’ sonic virtues to be many and their overall value to be greater than their prices. Good value and good sound: a winning combination!" He concludes, "Anyone seeking a new pre-power pair within the GoodSound! price range owes it to him- or herself to check these out."
The A 23 boasts 125 watts of THX Ultra 2 certified power per channel at 8 ohms and includes an adjustable audio sensitivity trigger as well as a 12-volt trigger for ease of operation with other hi-fi and home theater components. At 4 ohms, the Halo delivers 200 watts per channel, and can also be operated in bridged mono for a power delivery of 400 watts.
