Parasound NewClassic Model 2125 - Power amplifier Power, Features, Build, and Affordability Parasound's New Classic Model 2125 is destined to be the company's most popular two-channel power amplifier. Its winning combination of power, features, build quality, and affordability make it a must-have for all but the most demanding systems. And the THX Ultra2 certification means that it meets the highest performance standards for convincing reproduction of movie soundtracks. With its advanced and extremely efficient low-heat design, the New Classic Model 2125 runs cooler than previous Parasound Classic series models, making it ideal for rack or cabinet mounting. The newly designed power supply delivers all the voltage you need for transient peaks in musical programs and stunningly realistic special effects. "The NewClassics make a fine upgrade for those wanting to ditch their mass-market receivers and step in to the world of hi-fi separates," writes Clarke Robinson in his November 2007 review of the Parasound Model 2100 preamp and Model 2125 power amp for EnjoyTheMusic.com. "I am very easily excited by the music they produce. For that they get my recommendation." High-Resolution Power On Demand The Model 2125 delivers the high-resolution power you need for big entertainment. It offers 125-watt-per-channel output at 8 ohms and 200 watts at 4 ohms. It will also deliver a huge 400 watts into 8 ohms or 4 ohms in bridged mono mode. And it boasts 35 amps of peak current per channel for superior resolution of demanding musical peaks. The sound quality is pure Parasound pleasure, of course.

Standby, channel status, and high temperature indicators keep you informed of the operation sta.
