Great amp! You should buy another and run them bridged in mono (close to 400w I think).

I was going to do that but my speakers are 4ohm and in bridge mode these are not suitable for 4ohm.

      Hello everyone, 
      Good day . I am new to stereonet. Looking for some recommendations for my stereo(40%)/HT setup(60%).
       
      Current setup:
      Klipsch RP 260F (L-R), Klipsch 450C (Centre), Klipsch RP250S(surround)
       
      Sub : SVS PB2000
      AVR : Denon X 520BT
      Connected to TV.
       
      Looking to upgrade my AVR and add power amplifier. Looking for some recommendations.
       
      As klipsch are bright sounding speakers need to pair with Warm sounding amplifiers like Denon/Marantz
       
      I am looking to invest in something which will future proof for next 5 years at least.
       
      Any recommendations will be helpful. I am new to this world of amplifiers and sound. Please excuse for newbie mistakes/questions.
       
      how good is ATI power amplifier?
       
      Thank you.

      Item: Parasound JC-2 Preamp (black)
      Location: Adelaide
      Price: $3200 negotiable (ORP $9k)
      Item Condition: Excellent - 1 scuff mark (see close up photo)
      Reason for selling: change in direction
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Bank transfer

      Extra Info:
      This rare black JC-2 (not BP) was purchased ex-demo in April, with 2 years factory warranty - ie warranty until April 2021 
      Aside from the small mark on the upper facia above the volume control, it is flawless.
       
      The remote, on the other hand is a different story. While perfectly functional, It suffered from the usual breakdown of the rubberised coating, which has been stripped away (along with a couple of chips of paint). New replacement remotes are purchasable, or it will function just fine with a universal remote.
       
      Designed by John Curl, and part of the "Halo" series, it is a cut above Parasound's more recent preamps.
      Its successor, the JC-2 BP (just HT bypass added) was on Stereophile's Class A recommended preamp list until this year.

      It was shipped to me with good, but ad hoc packaging, arriving unharmed, but a local sale is preferred.
       
      Thanks for looking

      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 around 568w/8ohms each! Very powerful solid state amps that can drive any speakers on planet earth (even Bose!). I used these to power my Dynaudio Confidence 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.
