John Curl è uno dei progettisti di circuiti più rispettati di tutti i tempi e il genio creativo dietro l’audio di fascia alta e l’home theater di Parasound amplificatori. Dalla metà degli anni ’70 ha lasciato una scia di hardware di riferimento in tutto il settore … il classico Mark Levinson JC-2, la testa SOTA amplificatore e il suo preamplificatore Vendetta. Ognuna delle circa 200 Vendette è un’opera d’arte costruita a mano che è apprezzata dai suoi proprietari. Il primo lavoro di Curl come ingegnere del suono è stato presso Ampex, dove ha lavorato al progettazione di registratori a nastro. Successivamente è stato coinvolto nel pionieristico di quell’azienda ricerca sui videoregistratori. Da lì Curl si è trasferito nella roccia e roll business, progettando e realizzando i sistemi audio per The Grateful I road show dei morti. In qualità di consulente indipendente, Curl ha lavorato a dozzine di progetti sia in pro audio che home audio; fare master recorder, studio schede, preamplificatori microfonici, amplificatori di potenza e molti altri prodotti. Nel 1989 John Curl è stato presentato al fondatore di Parasound, Richard Schram e da allora, Curl ha progettato tutti gli amplificatori ad alta potenza di Parasound e consultato sulla progettazione dei circuiti di basso livello di molti dei suoi altri componenti.

LowBeats (Germany) November 2020
“the Parasound P 6 and Parasound A 23+ play together in a pleasingly balanced and precise manner, while still musical with tonality that tends toward warmth. The consistently very supple reproduction and simultaneously true-to-size presentation and pin-point positioning of individual instruments and voices is amazing. Yes, this is how HiFi is fun.”

Reviewer’s Choice

“Parasound provides great value in the Halo A 23+. I haven’t heard better sound or seen higher build quality at this price. An impressive power amplifier.”

Stereo+ (Norway) January 2019
“Together, the Parasound P 6 and A 23+ are dynamite. Pure sonic magic with brilliant dynamics, delicious midrange and impressive resolution. To get such good sound for the price of this duo seems almost unnatural. One incredibly appealing preamp-amplifier package from Parasound.”

ON-OFF  (Spain) September, 2019
“One strength is its capability to reproduce a wide sonic palette, with depth and plenty of micro information. Parasound’s power amp is able to bring out the best bass from speakers. Different kinds of music made us appreciate the unusual character of this amplification. Outstanding!”
