Parasound Announces New Halo Five-Channel Amp

By |


Parasound-A52plus.jpgParasound has announced details on a new five-channel amplifier, the Halo A 52+. The new model updates the original A 52 and offers increased power output (180 watts into eight ohms, up from 125). The amp uses high-bias Class A/AB and direct-coupled circuit topology, and it offers both balanced and unbalanced connections. The Halo A 52+ will be available in the fourth quarter of 2017 for $2,995.

From Parasound
Parasound is introducing their new Halo A 52+ five-channel amplifier. The A 52+ is based on their highly successful 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 eight ohms and 255 watts into four 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 A 52 had a great run from 2003 to 2012," said Richard Schram, president and founder of Parasound. A growing number of requests for a moderately priced high-performance five-channel amplifier coming from customers and dealers made the A 52 ripe for re-engineering and an increase in power."

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 and 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. These represent a fresh and refined Halo aesthetic.

The Parasound Halo A 52+ will be available in Q4 of 2017 with a retail price of $2,995.
