Parasound has a long tradition of designing top of the line components that sell for an affordable price.  The JC2 is no exception.  Designed by the world famous John Curl, this preamplifier is one of the quietest preamplifiers ever built, using top quality components throughout.  The JC2 was Absolute Sound’s product of the year in 2009 and in 2012 it was given an editor’s choice award.

Listening to music through this superb component will give you the feeling of being there, dynamic with definition and detail.  Each instrument is clearly separated and quality recordings have incredible depth.
