Parasound Halo P 6 2.1 Channel Preamplifier and DAC
Preamp with HT bypass, bass management, as well as onboard USB DAC, MM/MC phonostage, and dedicated high-current headphone amp.
The Parasound Halo P 6 is a stereo preamp that offers analog bass management with high- and low-pass crossovers, and front-panel subwoofer control. A home theater bypass input allows for surround sound integration.
Adding to the flexibility is an onboard Sabre DAC with a USB input that can handle 384/23 PCM audio and native DSD64, DSD128, DSD256, and DoP DSD. There is also an MM/MC phonostage and a dedicated high-current headphone amp.
The P 6 uses a Burr Brown analog resistor ladder volume control with a ball-bearing-supported solid aluminum volume knob. There are balanced and single-ended line outputs and subwoofer outputs. The bass and treble controls come with a relay bypass to remove them from the signal path.
