Parasound Halo Integrated Amplifier

$4,995.00 inc. GST

Description

Here at Sydney HiFi Castle Hill we were immediately impressed with the power and grip this new amp offers. The superb bass lines are paired with a smooth open treble that really puts this Halo Integrated amplifier into the big leagues in terms of sound.

Year after year Parasound Halo preamplifiers and power amplifiers have been rated the best high end audio for the money. Several years ago we challenged ourselves to create a no-compromise integrated amp that would match the performance of our Halo separates in every respect. We call it the Halo Integrated Amplifier.
