JC-2 Stereo Preamplifier

Parasound has a long tradition of designing top of the line components that sell at an affordable price.  The JC2 is no exception.  Designed by the world famous John Curl, this preamplifier is one of the quietest preamplifiers ever built, using top quality components throughout.  The JC2 was Absolute Sound’s product of the year in 2009 and in 2012 it was given an Editor’s Choice award.

Listening to music through this superb component gives the feel of being there; dynamic with definition and detail.  Each instrument is clearly separated and quality recordings have incredible depth.
