      Item: Parasound JC1 - Power Amp Monoblock (x2) 400 watts @ 8 Ohm
      Location: Sydney
      Price: 6,500 6200
      Item Condition: Used
      Reason for selling: NLR. Settling in with tubes amp
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info: PICKUP ONLY - NO SHIPPING. Third owner. Age is around 6 years old. Still current model at their product range because it is just THAT good. I would like to sell these rather than being unused because I'm quite content with my tubes amp. Still have boxes available. Even though these are 400w / 8ohms each, Stereophile did a measurement test and the true numbers are somewhere around568w/8ohms each! Very powerful solid state amps that can drive any speakers on planet earth (even Bose!). I used these to power my Dynaudio C2 and they power them without any sweat, even though Dynaudio C2 are famous for being difficult to drive. Happy to provide demo for serious buyers. The amp was designed by the famous John Curl, read up the story about this amp and you will be convinced that this is a serious piece of engineering and they did not skim with the components inside either. There are minor scuff marks on the chassis which is quite normal for amps at this age. The JC1 runs in pure Class-A up to 25 watts at eight ohms, with its bias set to high and ten watts into eight ohms with the bias set to low.
      The sticker that you see on the back panel is from the first owner from repairing a power button and an LED, so it's a very minor repair.
      These amps are still being sold on hi-fi stores in Sydney for $9,000 EACH. So grab a massive bargain, it's a no brainer to get it at this price when you could have spent $18,000 for the pair.

      I bought this amp off the forums in 2017, and it has mainly done HT duties as well as spinning 10 hours or so of vinyl each week. The amp has performed flawlessly and presents as warm and emotive, ie. the Exposure house sound. 
      The amp is rated at 100w / channel into 8 Ohms, and has the capability to run as a mono amp, as well as the option to biwire. Note: the amp only takes banana plugs. 
      Cosmetically, there are minor blemishes and some light scratches on the top of the unit.
      I have the original box, so happy to post.
      Power Output (Stereo): 100 Watts per channel at 1KHz into 8 Ohms
      Power output (bridged mono): 110 Watts at 1KHz into 8 Ohms

      Frequency Response: 20Hz - 20 KHz ±0.5dB
      Total Harmonic Distortion: <0.015% at rated output ref 1 KHz
      Signal to noise: >100 dB ref rated output
      Channel Separation: >60dB, 20Hz - 20KHz
      Mains Supply: 110/120V or 220/240V, 50/60Hz (factory set)
      Power Consumption: <350VA, 8 ohm load both channels driven

      Extra Info: Boothroyd and Stuart. 
      Made in Cambridge, England. 1989.
      I am the 2nd owner of these. 
      They are cosmetically 9/10. One very tiny scratch on one side of speaker. 
      I have tried to show in last 2 photos. 
      They certainly sound amazing and I’ve been told I will regret selling but simply no room. 
      I powered these through an Audiolab 8000S. 
      Aproximately 8meters of high quality interconnect cable on each speaker for perfect placement.  
      They are 31kg each. 
      900 high. 210 wide. 295 depth. 
      I have all original boxes with solid foam packing and manual.
