Parasound HALO P6

A 2.1 Channel Preamplifier with DAC.  

Review by HomeTheatre

"Parasound has a history of offering products that punch well above their respective price points. The P 6 sounds especially impressive when paired with an amplifier within the Parasound family. It’s also resolving enough that if you pair it with another amplifier or an analog source component, those sonic traits offered by those products are carried through to the rest of your system.

With its excellent build quality, handsome looks, extensive set of input and output options, as well as its impressive built-in DAC section and bass management capabilities, the P 6 is a no-brainer for anyone shopping for a digitally enabled preamplifier close to its asking price."
