From the house of Ooberpad arrives Parasound Halo JC 2 BP Preamplifier with Bypass. The Halo JC 2 BP is identical to the original JC 2 stereo preamplifier, alongside the home theatre Bypass function. The new Bypass function enables your surround system’s left and right front speakers and their power amplifier to do double duty as the left and right channels of an analog stereo system. All you need to do is connect the JC 2 BP between your surround processor or receiver’s left and right channel line-level output jacks and the input jacks on the power amplifier which drives your left and right front speakers.

Your stereo analog sources will connect to the JC 2 BP so you can immerse in an indulgent musical experience without compromises to analog purity that is unavoidable when digital processing circuitry is in the same chassis. When you want to enjoy your favourite blockbusters with digital surround simply press a button on the JC 2 BP’s new remote control and the left and right front channel signals from your surround processor or receiver will pass through the JC 2 BP as if it wasn’t even there. Indulge in an unmatched aural experience with perfect analog stereo and a smooth, effortless transition to digital surround.
