Stereo Pre-amps


Introducing NewClassic Building audio components with superb sound quality at affordable prices has been the hallmark of Parasound's philosophy since 1981. Our customers have come to expect outstanding products of unequalled value and reliability. And for 24 years we’ve delivered just that. Ask anyone who knows audio.

In 2002 Parasound launched a major project: to improve and refresh these classics. The goal was simple, but ambitious: to create new products that would be no less than new classics. A no-compromise, John Curl-designed preamplifier that reveals every bit of musical detail found in any recording, in a package that has all the conveniences anyone could want.

Over the years Parasound's original products were more beloved for their brawn than their beauty, and their quiet styling made them classics. And while the highly-styled models in our higher priced, elegant Halo line earned most of the recent accolades and honors, the functionally-styled classic models continued to earn the trust and respect of audio enthusiasts, custom installers and their clients.
