      Benefits of Parasound Halo JC 5 Stereo Power Amplifier by John Curl:

      The Substance Matters
      What's Inside Matters

      John Curl and Parasound’s engineers insist that what’s inside the JC 5 is even more exquisite than its exterior. Power amplifiers must eliminate input stage distortion in order to avoid output stage distortion which is especially irritating to a listener. In typical power amplifiers, the input and output stages share the same power supply. When driven hard their output stages’ voltage will sag, dragging down the input stage voltage that’s important for cutting down any perceptible distortion. A signature feature of the JC 5 (and JC 1) is a separate independent input stage power supply for each channel that is always 10 volts higher than the output stage voltage. Maintaining input stage voltage attenuates distortion even under the harshest or hostile conditions.

      High Current is Imperative to Optimal Performance
      High Current is Imperative

      High current is crucial for uncompromised sound. The JC 5 output (current) stage uses 24 Sanken 15A output transistors, carefully hand-matched for maximum performance. Their 60MHz bandwidth eliminates slew-rate distortion that robs music of its nuances. They function in pure Class A up to 12 watts per channel, eliminating distortion that blurs music at lower audio levels. Eliminating noise at the input stage is also critical. The JC 5 uses rare Toshiba 2SJ74 J-FETs which are highly coveted for their ultra-low noise.

      Nuanced and Uncompromising in the Sound Quality

      Every part within JC 5 is meticulously picked for its precision, sound quality and long life. Its speaker terminals are new, developed in collaboration with CHK. Their ample size and wide spacing accommodate even the largest gauge speaker wire or spade connectors. Top-notch quality 24 K gold-plating on the speaker terminals, input connectors and internal audio signal connections assure sound quality that won’t be compromised by corrosion.
