    Default The Parasound NewClassic Model 5250 v.2 5-Channel Power Amp – Redesigned, But Good En


    The Parasound NewClassic Model 5250 v.2 is a redesigned version of their 6 year old New Classic line flagship power amp. With a robust 250 watts per channel, you’d think it would be more than enough for just about any home theater.

    I’m definitely one who subscribes to the “too much is never enough” when it comes to amplifier power.
    Parasound says there are more than 60 improvements to the design. It’s still THX Ultra 2 Certified, five-channel, and 250-watts per channel as before, but now they’ve gone and thrown in adjustable gain controls, so if you are adding it to your receiver, instead of using it with a pre/pro, you can dial it in for a perfect level match.

    That's really not too much money for an amp with that much to offer...

    It really isn't. I'm a big fan of Parasound as they make truly world-class components. I would love to own this amp some day.

    I've never auditioned Parasound equipment but it was described to me as "krellish without costing as much". As a big Krell fan, I can't but support Parasound if it does indeed sound krellish.

    Any idea what kind of power it puts out X 5 @ 4 ohms? It may be reasonably priced but I'm on a budget. Wonder how this compares to a classic HCA-2205 which you can get from ebay for ~$8-900?
