    MY TAKE:
     

    For more than twenty years Parasound has been a name synonymous with unequaled value. Their electronics are respected for both performance and reliability, and compete with significantly more expensive products. Modestly priced, previous offerings have changed common perception about the level of performance that can be achieved at the price point.

    With the introduction of the Halo line, Parasound looks to bring the same level of value and performance to a more upscale market. The ambitious Halo range spans the gamut from state of the art home theater offerings to high end two-channel audio.

    For a number of years, the legendary John Curl has worked with Parasound as a consultant. His input has greatly influenced their products and is one of reasons for the praise they’ve received from the audiophile community.

    The A 51 five channel power is equally at home reproducing the full scale dynamics of home theater or the subtlety and refinement required for music.
