Parasound Reprises Five-Channel Amplifier with 44% More Power
Parasound is introducing its new Halo A 52+ five-channel amplifier. The A 52+ is based on their highly successful A 52 and features significant upgrades in power output, circuitry refinements, and the latest Halo styling. The new model increases available power from 125 to 180 watts per channel into 8 ohms and 255 watts into 4 ohms, with all channels driven. As with its predecessor, the Parasound Halo A 52+ is the work of audio legend John Curl, using high-bias Class A/AB and direct-coupled circuit topology. "The A 52 had a great run from 2003 to 2012," said Richard Schram, president and founder of Parasound. A growing number of requests for a moderately priced high-performance five-channel amplifier coming from customers and dealers made the A 52 ripe for reengineering and an increase in power." The Parasound Halo A 52+ features a larger custom-made toroid power transformer to support its higher power output. It has five RCA unbalanced and five balanced XLR inputs, a separate module for each channel, DC Servos, and relays to protect the amp and speakers. Features include automatic turn-on, a 3U chassis with rear carry handles which is rack-mountable with optional adaptors. The Parasound Halo A 52+ has a black anodized extruded front panel with new solid aluminum end-caps that are milled and hand-polished. These represent a fresh and refined Halo aesthetic. The Parasound Halo A 52+ has a suggested retail price of $2,999. For more information on Parasound products, visit http://www.parasound.com. # # #
