Parasound's High-end HALO Components Now Available in Black

The first HALO product to be offered in Black as well as Silver, is the HALO A 31 three-channel power amplifier, followed in roughly monthly intervals by the A 51 five-channel and A 21 two-channel amplifiers.

San Francisco (9/24/12) -- Parasound has announced that its flagship

HALO product line will now be offered in a black finish in addition to
the titanium-silver finish that has characterized the line since it was
launched over ten years ago.

The new front panels are made of extruded aluminum, with a brushed
hairline black anodized finish. The recess in the front panel is
bead-blasted for a contrasting texture. This high-quality finishing
process produces a durable, long-lived finish that has contributed to
the timeless Halo design concept and, in the opinion of Parasound's
founder and president, Richard Schram, "continues to be uniquely
satisfying and less "techy" looking than the majority of audio
products."

"The impetus to offer Halo in black," Schram continues, "comes from our
dealers and their customers, who are increasingly using AV receivers
and popularly priced surround processors as the "front end" of their
surround systems. The majority of AVRs are black and some end users
have a strong preference for components of a single color. HALO black
panels will be manufactured by the same vendor that has made HALO
silver panels since HALO was introduced. Their finish/color have been
absolutely consistent among models and year after year."

The first HALO product to be offered in Black as well as Silver, is the
HALO A 31 three-channel power amplifier, followed in roughly monthly
intervals by the A 51 five-channel and A 21 two-channel amplifiers. All
three of these amplifiers use the same 250-watt high-current power
amplifier stage so they can be used together in large multi-channel
home theaters, while retaining identical sound characteristics from
channel-to-channel. After these three models, the company will continue
to work through the full HALO line, including those audiophile
favorites, the HALO JC 1 400-watt monoblock power amplifier, JC 2 and
JC 2 BP preamplifiers, and JC 3 phono preamplifier.

There is no upcharge for black and prices are the same as present
silver HALO.

The Parasound HALO A 31 black will be available in October with a
manufacturer's suggested retail price of $3,000.
