Parasound Halo JC 5 Stereo Power Amplifier

A 400 W, ultra-high-bias class A and AB amp designed by John Curl. Can be bridged to 1,200 W.

With circuitry designed by the legendary John Curl, the flagship Parasound Halo JC 5 is a world-class reference quality power amp. It offers 12 W of class-A power before switching into class AB operation. 

Dual mono input stages use 110 V DC rails, and the 8,880 uF Nichicon Gold Tune filter capacitors are independent of the main power supply. There are massive 132,000 uF Rubycon filter capacitors for the output stage. 

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 24 beta-matched 15 ampere, 60 MHz bipolar output transistors. The 73 lb. amp uses a 1.7 kVA shielded toroidal transformer with independent windings for each channel. There are independent power supplies for the input, driver, and output stages. 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
