Halo JC1+

JC's 2nd coming – Parasound's 450-watt Halo JC1+ monos bowed in 2020 but didn't enjoy a public premiere due to lock down. The upcoming RMAF show will rectify that. The redesign of John Curl's 2003 original does a whopping 850w into 4Ω, 1'300w into 2Ω and peak current of 180 amperes. Class A bias covers up to 25 watts so many listeners will never enter the class AB envelope. There's 198'000µF of filter capacitance and a 2.1kVA power transformer leading to a weight of 83lbs.
