Introducing Halo by Parasound

Audio-Video Components with Stunning Design and Impeccable Sound

Halo by Parasound Series "3" Components

San Francisco (4/22/02) --- Parasound Products, Inc. has introduced the first of a new premium brand of high-end audio and video components that will be sold under the name Halo by Parasound. With attractive silver-finish front panels and upgraded audio circuitry, Halo by Parasound provides a design-conscious step-up from the company’s ongoing traditional product line, now known as Parasound Classic.

“Halo by Parasound will be beautiful, versatile, easy to use, and offer incredible sound quality,” said Richard Schram, the president and founder of Parasound Products. “Halo builds upon our reputation for manufacturing high quality, high value products by further upgrading sonic performance and ease of operation. Halo gives our dealers products whose performance equals or surpasses the most revered brands in high-end audio, while maintaining real-world pricing.”

“The Halo series,” Schram continues, “incorporates professional audio technologies such as fully-differential balanced circuits with XLR type connectors. It also follows and refines proven Parasound design elements like the use of pure Class A JFET input and MOSFET driver stages, DC servos to eliminate capacitors in the signal path, and the use of Class A/AB power amplifiers that operate Class A at virtually all reasonable listening levels. We also gave our chief analog designer, John Curl, the go-ahead to specify higher grade electronic components. Needless to say, we’ve had no arguments from John on this matter.”

Today, Parasound begins delivering three Halo audio components designed to set new standards for stereo sound quality. The Halo A 23 Power Amplifier, P 3 Preamplifier, and T 3 FM/AM Tuner combine to form what may well be the ultimate affordable two-channel music system.

Over the coming months these will be followed by state-of-the-art 7.5 Channel Controllers, a full-line of stereo and multi-channel power amplifiers, and multi-format disc players.

The Halo by Parasound T 3 Tuner has a suggested retail price of $600. The P 3 Preamplifier has a suggested retail price of $800. The A 23 Power Amplifier has a suggested retail price of $850. All are currently available.

Founded in 1981, Parasound Products, Inc., is a privately owned U.S. company that specializes in providing affordable audio and home theater components to the critical listener.
