Parasound has introduced its highly-anticipated 400-watt JC 1 monoblock power amplifier as the flagship amplifier for its new Halo line of premium audio components. With impressive current reserves, the amplifier delivers 800 Watts into 4 Ohms, and 1200 Watts into 2 Ohm loads. This extremely powerful component was developed by Parasound in collaboration with legendary designer John Curl’s CTC Builders, and represents the culmination of 13 years of Curl's ongoing evolution of Parasound power amplifier topologies.
Formed in 1998, CTC Builders consists of John Curl handling electrical design, board and layout design by Carl Thompson, and Bob Crump's component selection and implementation. The trio has developed a number of products, including the CTC Blowtorch preamplifier and the CTC BBQ amplifier.
