Depth: 15"-1/4" (388 mm) I purchased the Parasound A23 amd with the P3 preamp and the T3 tuner with a pair of Paridigm 60/v2 speakers. My NAD integrated has two preamp-level outputs, one of them tied with a coupler to the main input to allow the NAD to be used as a preamp or power amp, which made it easy to compare the NAD’s power-amp section with the Halo A 23+. (In this intimate recording, the vibes and Barron’s piano together occupy a big share of the soundstage.). Parasound Halo A23 $995 Parasound’s A23 isn’t the last word in low-end authority, and it’s a bit cool in the midrange, but what it lacks in oomph it makes up for in finesse and pitch definition. There are independent power supplies for its input, driver, and output stages. So you can justifiable say the original Hint was closer to the current A23+. It had a dramatic punch, but also expressed delicate flute motifs, and even silence when needed. The output-stage transistors support high current levels and are extremely fast (60MHz), to tame transient intermodulation distortion. < 0.03 % at typical listening levels, Inter-channel Crosstalk Frustrated, and for the sake of this review, I was forced to speculate about the nature of accurate and neutral. is part of.

The Parasound managed just fine without it. Sathyan Sundaramsathyans@soundstagenetwork.com. Unbalanced: 33 kΩ On the Halo A 23+’s rear panel are balanced (XLR) and unbalanced (RCA) inputs; each channel has a toggle switch for choosing between them, as well as its own loop output (RCA) for additional amplification (e.g., a subwoofer), and a Gain knob. Via unbalanced (RCA) interconnects, I fed the A 23+ audio signals from my primary sources, a Music Hall MMF CD-25 CD player and a Cambridge Audio CXN (V2) network player. The NewClassic 200 Integrated is a modification of Parasound’s NewClassic 200 Pre-Amp, meaning it’s pretty much the same unit with the addition of an amp section. The Halo A 23+ was designed by engineer John Curl, who’s well known in audio circles, and since the 1990s has designed many amplifiers for Parasound. As Sherman traversed his instrument’s range, I could follow the movements of his mallets across the soundstage with the A 23+. +9 Vdc to +12 Vdc, 5 mA, Audio Trigger Requirements One incredibly appealing preamp-amplifier package from Parasound.".
