PARASOUND: Since 1981 our name has been synonymous with rock-solid reliability, amazing sound quality and unequaled value. Building on this reputation we have created an ambitious new line of components, HALO by Parasound. This exciting series brings you the highest level of refinement, performance, and distinctive design.
Halo components have earned the highest praise from top magazine reviewers and critics across the globe. The striking industrial design of these products was given the prestigious Good Design Award from the Chicago Athenaeum, and our remarkable JC 1 power amplifier was crowned Amplifier of the Year by Stereophile magazine - a significant honor which until now was bestowed only upon products at vastly higher prices.
"The Halo C 1 displays an extraordinary attention to detail..." "...if you want to roll your own high-end home theater system without outside assistance, the C 1 might be your best bet." "It deserves consideration for a large home theater by virtue of those programmable outputs, which have the potential to produce a sonic experience unmatchable...by most other equipment of any kind." "These programmable auxiliary outputs might be just the thing for a really big listening room with more than just six satellites and one subwoofer available." - David Ranada
Home Cinema Choice (UK), October 2004 "The processor offers enveloping surround sound processing, and the power amplifier (A 51) is muscular." "It avoids the edgy, electrical patina of some processors Iíve heard, and has a warmth, scale and liveliness which provide their own rewards." "The Halo C 1ís processorís TFT screen is a blessing... "Five Stars - Alvin
Gold Home Theater, September 2004 Whatís the one piece of gear currently in your system that you canít live without? "Parasoundís Halo processor allows the signal to pass through virtually unfettered: The highs are sweet and clear, without sounding etched; the mids are full and rich, giving body and weight to midrange spectra; and bass is crisp and tight. The Halo has improved the manner in which I evaluate other gear; itís indispensable for its neutrality." - Jerry Kindella, Contributor
Audio (Poland), August 2004 "The C 1 and A 52 is the most powerful control and amplification center for Home Theater you can ever imagine for this price." "The transparency of the sound, its precision is outstanding." "The C 1 capabilities are hard to describe, because there are so many things you can control and it is so easy that even non-professionals can easily configure your home theater system." "In summary, we can say that it is very hard to imagine any competitive devices with the same outstanding capabilities and sound reproduction." - Wojciech Pacula
Home Entertainment and Design, May 2004 Featured component in Surround Sound on Steroids article. "With its automatic setup capability, its professional-style BNC video connections and XLR audio connections, and its front LCD screen, Parasound's Halo C 1 must be considered a state-of-the-art surround-sound processor." "The vessel that takes me where few home theater fans have gone before is Parasound Products' Halo C 1 surround-sound preamp/processor." "The music fills my room like never before. It's enveloping, addictive." "...Parasound's C 1 surround-sound processor can give you a taste of what lies beyond 7.1." - Brent Butterworth
