Parasound is very proud of their new Halo JC5. This is their new 400 watt per channel stereo power amplifier, and is the latest achievement in Parasound’s long history of value engineering combined with the design skill of audio legend John Curl.

Over the years, the John Curl-designed JC1 monoblock has garnered more honors and awards than any other amplifier, making it the benchmark for performance and value. In the meantime, customers have been asking for a no-compromise stereo amplifier alternative to save money and space. So they presented John with this ambitious challenge: Distill the essence of two JC1 monoblocks into a single chassis stereo amplifier with a more attractive price.

The result is the profoundly powerful and supremely musical JC5.John Curl’s signature is discreetly imprinted on its front panel, honouring his considerable role in its development. The JC5 will delight the ears (and the wallets) of serious audiophiles and music lovers alike. With exquisite performance and compelling value, the JC5 is the new amplifier benchmark of 2018 – and of many years to come.
