Cool Operation, High Efficiency, and Compact Footprint Make Parasound NewClassic 275 v.2 Ideal for Small Spaces and Custom-Install Setups: Power Amplifier Packs a Punch
You might not think a 2.5-inch-tall power amplifier can pack much of a punch, but the Parasound NewClassic 275 v.2 is not your ordinary high-end component. Ideal for rooms and environments that need cool-running operation and high efficiency, the 20-pound mighty mite outputs a clean, conservatively rated 90Wpc into eight ohms – and 200Wpc in bridged mode. Providing 30 amps of peak current per channel, NewClassic 275 v.2 offers two-ohm stable operation with a load selector switch. In addition to its space-conscious 2.5 x 17.25 x 16 inch (HWD) chassis, it boasts the audiophile technology and engineering for which Parasound is renowned.
Anchored by fully discrete circuitry and a high-current toroidal transformer, the 20-pound dynamo serves both two-channel and home-theater setups with equivalent aptitude. DC servo and relay protection circuits, a switchable high-pass filter, rear-mounted left and right gain controls, and a suite of standby, status, and high-temp indicators give you convenient options and peace of mind. The rack-mountable NewClassic 275 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 heavy-duty, gold-plated five-way speaker terminals ensure compatibility with practically any speaker connections.
An incredible value, the quiet-operating NewClassic 275 v.2 reproduces music with absorbing clarity, detail, dynamics, and presence. Few power amplifiers with its ergonomics, capability, build quality, 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 275 v.2 in your home today.
