Parasound Halo JC 3 Jr. MM/MC Phono Preamplifier

Circuitry designed by the legendary John Curl, and board layouts by Carl Thompson.

The Parasound Halo JC 3 Jr. phonostage offers MM/MI or MC support, and three-level gain selection for both the single-ended and balanced outputs. A mono switch can improve the sound of mono LPs. Variable MC impedance can be adjusted between 50 and 550 ohm.

The design offers an incredible signal-to-noise ratio of up to 94 dB, with a THD less than 0.02%. Only the finest components are used, with Vishay-Dale resistors in the audio path, Vampire 24k gold-plated RCA jacks, and Neutrik XLR connectors.

An aluminum shield separates power supply and audio circuits, and the toroidal power transformer is also carefully shielded. The power supply uses high-speed-soft recovery bridge rectifiers and common mode inductors.
