Parasound Halo A 23+ Stereo Power Amplifier

A 160 W, high-bias class A and AB amp designed by John Curl. Can be bridged for 500 W mono.

With circuitry designed by the legendary John Curl, the Parasound Halo A 23+ is a hugely powerful high-bias class-A with AB operation that delivers 45 A peak current per channel. It will drive even speakers whose loads dip below 2 ohm. It has balanced inputs with discrete circuits, and the direct coupled signal path means no capacitors or inductors get in the way of great sound.

The JFET input stage is connected to a MOSFET driver stage, and the amp uses 12 beta-matched 15 ampere, 60 MHz bipolar output transistors. The 27 lb. amp uses a 1.1 kVA shielded toroidal transformer with independent windings for each channel. There are independent power supplies for the input, driver, and output stages. The output stage uses 54,400 µF filter capacitors. Harris hyper-fast soft-recovery bridge diode rectifiers continue the theme of expensive, overspecified design that results in a sound with huge power and headroom. Full power is rated all the way down to 5 Hz for unrestricted low-end bass.
