Parasound introduced this week its new Halo A 52+ five-channel amplifier. The A 52+ is based on the company’s 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 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. The Parasound Halo A 52+ will be available in Q4 of 2017 with a retail price of $2,995.
