High-Value, Highly Versatile Parasound NewClassic 200 Preamplifier Features Burr-Brown DAC, MM/MC Phono Preamplifier, Home-Theater Bypass, Bass Management, and Much More

A stupendously versatile, take-on-all-comers, entry-level high-end value, the Parasound NewClassic 200 preamplifier touts a pure analog signal path from input to output – and offers users a sensible foundation on which to base a system. Variable and fixed-level preamplifier outputs stand at the ready for your external power amplifier, while home-theater bypass with adjustable high-pass crossovers affords easy integration into surround (and/or streamer-based) setups.

Analog bass management with variable 20-140Hz high-pass crossover, an 80Hz low-pass subwoofer output, two-way RS232 port with exact volume control and feedback, rear-panel IR input, and 12V trigger output further the set-up and expansion possibilities.

Look inside, and an excellent MM/MC phono preamplifier and high-grade Burr-Brown 24-bit/192kHz PCM1798 DAC – both taken directly from Parasound's Halo P 5 – speak to the fidelity-focused engineering that ensures the 11-pound NewClassic 200 plays with stellar dynamics, clarity, definition, and focus.

A host of USB, coaxial, and optical inputs abet four analog inputs, a full-range mono output, and front-panel auxiliary input with 12dB of additional gain. For kicks, Parasound also includes a dedicated headphone amplifier to cover all bases.

In terms of control, the rack-mountable NewClassic 200 lays it on thick. A backlit remote control enables bass, treble, and balance adjustments from your fingertips. Favorite volume memory with remote-control options, a front-panel LCD display with dimming, and default turn-on volume memory all come standard. Ditto the option to rename inputs to match your connected source. Parasound's two-year warranty and our 100% Music Direct Satisfaction Guarantee complete a preamplifier with which you can grow for years to come.

"I have been successfully using Parasound components for almost 30 years.... I really enjoyed the time I spent with the Parasound NewClassic 200 Pre. I consider its ... price a bargain for what proved to be a wonderful preamplifier that includes a quality phono stage for moving-magnet and moving-coil phono cartridges; a quality DAC; and a host of other features.... Every Parasound product I have bought still works without ever giving me a single problem.... [The] Parasound NewClassic 200 Pre preamplifier is highly recommended and would be a nice centerpiece for anyone putting together a system where a feature-rich preamp in the $1,000 price range, or even well above that, is desired."
—Byron Baba, Dagogo

"Rather than merely checking off a list of features and connections, Parasound has provided in the NewClassic 200 Pre a high-quality, well-built preamplifier-DAC. All of the most important features are here, plus an unexpected one — the subwoofer output options — and for [the price], all are well executed. The extras included — headphone amp and phono stage — are hard to imagine being bettered without a substantial increase in money spent. The NewClassic 200 Pre will easily suit many buyers, as well as make a good first step into the world of audio separates."
—Sathyan Sundaram, SoundStage! Access

Massive Power Output, Fully Discrete Circuitry, Gain Controls, Custom-Install Options, Quiet Operation: 275Wpc Parasound NewClassic 2250 v.2 Power Amplifier Epitomizes Value

Seeking trademark Parasound quality and many of the same design elements found in the company's Halo Series components for a lower price? The NewClassic 2250 v.2 two-channel power amplifier fits the bill. The THX Ultra2-certified powerhouse outputs a brawny 275Wpc into eight ohms and a staggering 750Wpc in bridged mode. Delivering a healthy 45 amps of peak current per channel, NewClassic 2250 v.2 provides two-ohm stable operation with a load selector switch and drives speakers with confidence, authority, and ease. And it comes loaded with audiophile technology and parts.

Featuring fully discrete circuitry and high-current toroidal transformer, the 43-pound unit plays efficiently and runs cool. DC servo and relay protection circuits, a switchable high-pass filter, rear-mounted left and right gain controls, and a complete suite of standby, status, and high-temp indicators give you convenient options and peace of mind. NewClassic 2250 v.2 also allows for auto turn-on/off via DC trigger or audio signal (with two sensitivity settings). A rear-mounted lockout switch disables the front A/B buttons for custom-install use, while the heavy-duty, gold-plated five-way speaker terminals ensure compatibility with practically any speaker connections. Plus, if you want to rack-mount NewClassic 2250 v.2, it's a cinch.

Most importantly, NewClassic 2250 v.2 reproduces music with impactful dynamics, engaging liveliness, remarkable detail, and punchy bass. Few power amplifiers of its capability and reliability reside at its end of the price spectrum. Parasound's two-year warranty and our 100% Music Direct Satisfaction Guarantee see to it you have every reason to audition NewClassic 2250 v.2 in your home today.
