Parasound Halo A52+ Multi Channel Amplifier

The Parasound HALO A52+ is a new addition for 2018 to the HALO multichannel stable. The A 52+ is based on Parasound's previous and highly successful A 52 model, and features significant upgrades in power output, circuitry refinements, and of course features the latest Halo styling.

The new model increases available power from 125 to 180 watts per channel into 8 ohms and 255 watts into 4 ohms, with all channels driven. As with its predecessor, the Parasound Halo A 52+ is the work of audio legend John Curl, using high-bias Class A/AB and direct-coupled circuit topology.

The Parasound Halo A 52+ features a larger custom-made toroidal power transformer to support its higher power output. It has five RCA unbalanced and five balanced XLR inputs, a separate module for each channel, DC Servos and relays to protect the amp and speakers. Features include automatic turn-on, a 3U chassis with rear carry handles which is rack mountable with optional adaptors.

The Parasound Halo A 52+ has a black anodized extruded front panel with new solid aluminum end-caps that are milled and hand-polished. These represent a fresh and refined Halo aesthetic.
