Parasound Halo P6 HiFi Preamplifier/DAC

The Parasound Halo range is their crowning achievement. The Parasound P6 is an analogue Preamplifier with built in DAC meaning that it is capable of handling an array of both analogue and digital sources. The inclusion of an improved phono stage as well as improved DAC have made the P6 a natural progression with improved sound and specifications from the P5. Parasound have also included full 2.1 bass management for the modern Hifi enthusiast wishing to integrate sub woofers into a 2 channel set up.

Featuring 5 Stereo line inputs and an array of digital inputs (including USB to connect a computer), a quality headphone out, both RCA and XLR inputs and outputs - the Parasound P6 can form the heart of a complex 2 channel system and yet remains easy to set-up and use.
