Parasound 275

Recommended Posts

What do you think of Parasound's model 275 two channel amp? Here it is.

I'm close to purchasing one but haven't found out much online, except Parasound has a decent reputation.

They have a version 2 currently available with more wattage, otherwise similar specs.

 

The only way to really know is purchase and listen. Just curious if I should know anything before pulling the trigger.

Have you talked with Cory about it?

I am somewhat interested in a A51/A52 halo...

I'm not sure I want to drop that much on a pioneering purchase. Are you a fan of Parasound? Is $1150 a good price for their 5250 model?

The seller lowered the price since last night. Local is way better than shipping a heavy HT amp. This model is about 10 years old. Thinking....

For slightly more cash we're into Sunfire TGA territory. Always wanted to try one of those. Same age as Parasound's 5250 (~10 years), 7 channels, cool running chassis.

Specifically for 2-channel?

I like the 275... technically it's the V2 for the current model:

I have two of them on my Jubilees.  One of those little things on my bass bins is enough to make my insides feel funny. :)

Maybe. I have a few systems around and would have a blast with either a two channel or 5 channel amp.

Thanks for your thoughts. The one within my grasp is the first version 275.

Nice to hear they work well with the crazy efficient Jubilee. I like a very quiet noise floor. Everyone prefers it, sure, but it's particularly not cool if I can hear a hiss, slight hum, buzz, etc.

That's the exact reason I am done with Carver amps. I do HT so I need silent amps. I found a buyer so that's going to create a hole I will need to fill in my system. Thats my interest here. I was also considering monoprice monolith 7x when they release. 200w x 7 balanced and unbalanced inputs. 100lbs of ATI all American goodness.

$1350 is the going rate of a 5250 v1. I am thinking he would come down some more. Cosmetic condition, original packaging, papers, does effect the final.
