Parasound Halo AV Amps
A51, Surround sound power amp, 250W, 8 ohm; 400W, 4 ohm x 5 channels, $4795, "My reference amp is the Parasound A51. I purchased this amp last spring after wanting to own it for more than 10 years & I consider it to be one of the best amps that money can buy." SOUND & VISION,
EDITOR'S CHOICE "Powerful power amp with impressive sound. Excellent value." HI-FI CHOICE, AWARDS
A31, $3295, 3 channel power amp "The A31 is rated at 250W/ch, 8 ohm; 400W/ch 4 ohm, all 3 channels driven 20Hz-20k. Immediately I was struck by the treble. It revealed more detail across the soundstage + subtleties of texture. The remarkable definition continued into the midrange and bass. Bass was firm and extended. A31's clean, luminous sound was distinguishable from the opaque treble of $6000 Bel Canto Ref1000Mk2 monoblocks. A31 is slightly less powerful than $10,000 McIntosh MC303 into 8 ohms, but more powerful into 4 ohms. The Mac's treble was recessed in comparison." STEREOPHILE
