SAN FRANCISCO (3/2/05) -- Parasound has introduced the THX Ultra2 certified Model 5125 five-channel home theater power amplifier as part of its NewClassic line. Each of this cool-running power amplifier's five channels can deliver 125 watts into 8 ohms, and 185 watts into 4 ohms. The Parasound Model 5125's amplifier design is identical to that of the two-channel Model 2125, so they can be used in combination for a 7.1-channel home theater system.

"NewClassic," said Richard Schram, Parasound's president and founder, "is a no-nonsense line of products designed to meet the needs of professional custom audio-video system integrators and installers, and most of all their customers. These products are the end result of our long history of dedication to sound quality, performance, and build-quality. We back them up with a 10-year parts, 5-year labor warranty."

The Model 5125 is a Class AB amplifier designed for efficient, low heat operation. It features fully discrete circuitry with two toroid transformers, and is capable of delivering 35 amps peak current per channel. For integration with processing and control equipment, the amplifier features both a DC trigger input with looping output and adjustable sensitivity audio signal sensing for automatic on/off control. A ground lift switch is included on the rear panel, as are gold plated RCA inputs, and heavy-duty 24 K gold plated five-way speaker terminals for each channel.

The Model 5125 includes DC Servo and relay protection circuits, and there are front panel indicators for high temperature, standby, and status of each channel.

The Model 5125 occupies three rack spaces when mounted with the optional RMK33 rack-mount kit. It is currently available at a suggested retail price of $1800.
