The latest addition to Parasound's ZoneMaster line, the new 2350 stereo amplifier is rated at 350 watts per channel into eight ohms and 600 watts into four ohms. It uses a Class AB input stage with Class D power modules. Features include a two-channel analog low-pass crossover to drive one or more in-wall passive subwoofers, line-level and speaker-level inputs, A and B speakers, a mono/stereo mode switch, a high-pass filter, stereo loop output, and a 12-volt trigger. The ZoneMaster 2350 is available now for $1,295.
Parasound has introduced the ZoneMaster 2350, a powerful and affordable 350-watt-per-channel Class D stereo power amplifier with a crossover for subwoofers. It is now available from Parasound dealers for premium audio and custom installation applications.
The Parasound ZoneMaster 2350 draws on the company's heritage of low-noise Class AB input stages and analog bass management, combined with the highest quality Class D amplification to drive eight-ohm speakers to 350 watts per channel, and deliver up to 600 watts per channel into four ohms. The 2350's high current design and extensive heat-sinking enable it to easily drive two-ohm loads in demanding applications.
"While this is probably my 38th new power amplifier introduction, I am especially excited about the ZoneMaster 2350 as something new and different for Parasound," said Richard Schram, the company's president and founder. "It has the high horsepower our industry has come to expect from good Class D, and by marrying it with our industry-leading analog input stage and unique connectivity options, we've created a remarkably rugged, maximum-fidelity amp that can play at the red-line all day. With bass management and versatile installation features, it is also a really practical choice for commercial systems."
In addition to providing high power and audiophile-grade sound quality to stereo speakers, the Parasound ZoneMaster 2350 includes a package of unique installer-friendly features that have proven popular on several of Parasound's other ZoneMaster amplifiers. These include a two-channel analog 80Hz, 24dB/octave low-pass crossover for driving one or more in-wall passive subwoofers without the need for external crossovers, separate line-level and speaker-level inputs, A & B speakers, a mono/stereo mode switch, a 30Hz/80Hz high-pass filter to improve performance with small speakers, stereo loop outputs, a dedicated mono line output, and audio-sensing or 12-volt trigger auto turn-on options.
The Parasound ZoneMaster 2350 is now available from authorized Parasound dealers with an MSRP of $1,295.
