Parasound Halo JC 1+ monoblock amplifier succeeds Parasound’s flagship product, Halo JC 1 after two decades of being the aspirational amplifier for thousands of audiophiles world-wide.  With 450 watts into 8 ohms, 850 watts into 4 ohms, 1300 watts into 2 ohms, and a peak current of 180 amperes, the JC 1+ excels even with speakers that can dip to 1 ohm. It operates in pure Class A up to 25 Watts and Class AB to full power, reflecting Curl’s attention to detail and sound quality.

  • Remarkably quiet:  The Parasound Halo JC 1+ is remarkably quiet and is the first commercially built product to employ active high-frequency noise filtering with Bybee Music Rails™, eliminating input stage noise that compromises sound quality.
  • Independent input-stage power supply:  The input-stage power supply is totally independent from the main power supply. Its R-core transformer isolates sensitive circuitry from high-frequency power line noise. This input stage power supply employs quiet high speed/soft recovery diodes, virtually eliminating distortion.
  • Flexible connectivity:  The addition of an XLR Loop Out as well as a 12V-trigger / delayed-turn-on improve the connectivity and utility when multiple JC 1+s are used in bi, tri, and quad amp configurations.
  • Fast-start bias circuit:  Parasound’s Halo JC 1+ has a fast-start bias circuit that enables it to sound its best within minutes after turn-on. A bias level selector switch enables cooler operation, with virtually no performance compromise.
