Parasound NewClassic 200 Integrated Amplifier

$2,165.00

The Parasound NewClassic 200 Integrated is an affordable amplifier-DAC with substantial power and flexibility.

Description

Parasound has turned its most-affordable preamplifier and DAC design into its most-affordable integrated amplifier and DAC with the addition of a 110-watt per channel power amplifier stage. The resulting Parasound NewClassic 200 Integrated Amplifier and DAC has all the same preamplifier features as the NewClassic 200 Pre, plus the ability to drive high quality loudspeakers without buying a separate power amplifier. Like the 200 Pre, the 200 Integrated includes analog bass management for optimal performance with compact satellite speakers and a powered subwoofer.

The amplifier stage is the latest design from the renowned Danish company Pascal. Pascal’s expertise in class D engineering allows Parasound to cram a hefty 110 watts/channel RMS 8 ohms into the very slim 1U chassis. Parasound’s expertise in designing superb, full-featured preamplifiers ensures signal integrity by avoiding typical analog-to-digital conversion for volume control and special functions such as bass management, high pass and low pass crossovers.
