Looking for a powerhouse two-channel power amp that’s near-perfect and affordable? Parasound’s NewClassic Model 2250 gives you plenty of power for better than movie house sound quality. And the THX Ultra2 certification means that it meets the highest performance standards for convincing reproduction of movie soundtracks. “The Parasound 2100 [preamp] and 2250 offer sound quality across the board so good, I would have thought you’d have to pay at least ,000 to get it,” reports Chris Groppi in his June 2008 review for Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity. “If you have K to spend on a preamp and amp, you can’t go wrong with the Model 2100 and 2250.” With its advanced and extremely efficient low-heat design, the NewClassic Model 2250 runs cooler than previous Parasound Classic series models, making it ideal for rack or cabinet mounting. The newly designed power supply delivers all the voltage you need for transient peaks in musical programs and stunningly realistic special effects. The Model 2250 delivers the high-resolution power you need for big entertainment. It offers an extremely healthy 250-watt-per-channel output at 8 ohms and a huge 385 watts at 4 ohms. But hang onto your hat, because it will also deliver a full-throttle 600 watts into 8 ohms or 4 ohms in bridged mono mode. And it boasts 45 amps of peak current per channel for superior resolution of demanding musical peaks. The sound quality is pure Parasound pleasure, of course. Fully discrete circuitry with a large toroidal transformer keeps the noise floor exceptionally low and the musical signal pure. The ‘Class AB’ circuitry provides efficient operation with less heat output than pure ‘Class A’ for the highest degree of reliability with DC servo and relay protection circuitry. Standby, channel status, and high temperature indicators keep you informed of the operation status.
