In the case of the A21 amplifier (having been designed by audio engineer and electronics/engineering guru - John Curl ) you can be assured of a rock solid, high current, high powered, great sounding, neutral and reliable amplifier. The A21 amplifier is renowned for delivering a sound and technical performance way beyond its price point - indeed that rarity of a brand being used and praised both by Hi-Fi reviewers as well as being used in professional studios such as : Lucasfilm, Pixar, 20th Century Fox, Skywalker sound, and even by Kanye West!
The Parasound A21 class A/B amplifier is designed to run nearly any speaker due to it's huge power output (2x400w rms into 4 ohm), oversized power supply (1,2kVa), high current output (60 amperes/channel) as well as also passing stringent THX Ultra2 certification.
What does all of this technology mean? In essence, you can use the Parasound A21 amplifier in a variety of situations/purposes... from upping the power, control and drama for your front speakers in a Home Cinema Surround System or for pure Hi-Fi enjoyment with a clean, wide bandwidth design coupled to awesome sound staging, true bass depth and vice like grip of your speakers. The A21 delivers a pure, deep, punchy and authoritative sound with all types of speakers including difficult to drive panels or low impedance loads.
The Parasound A21 amplifier has both regular RCA input jacks as well as 3 pin XLR inputs guaranteeing compatibility with both consumer and professional grade equipment. The A21 amplifier also thoughtfully includes independent left and right rotary input gain controls for matching input and output levels to whatever equipment is connected to it. To top it off, the Parasound Halo A21 is built like a tank, choc full of real speaker driving power and an award winning sound that is delivered with authority, finesse and natural detail.
Quote from Audioholics Award :
"For those who desire the power of a Mack truck with the finesse of a Mercedes Benz in a two-channel amplifier, look no further than Parasound. The A 21 has a solid foundation with a power supply consisting of a 1.2 kVa transformer and 100,000uf filter banks, pelting out 250wpc into 8 ohms and 400wpc into 4 ohms for both channels. Our bench tests confirmed that this is one solid contender. This is no surprise considering its THX Ultra2 certification. With the assortment of unbalanced and balanced inputs, triggered output, and ground lift option no stones were left unturned with this well built, attractive design."
Quote from Australian Hi-Fi:
"This power does not come at the expense of subtlety. I took particular care to listen carefully to the very tiniest details of performances, right down to the whisper of pages being turned by performers, faint sounds in audiences, even the breathing of singers not singing at all, but simply awaiting their entrance, and I could detect no difference in these details between the P3/Halo A21 and the same signal played through headphones… yes, these Parasounds are that good."
Quote from Australian Hi-Fi:
"Its luxurious appearance is more than skin deep. Parasound’s A21 dispensed truly sumptuous sound from Maxwell’s ‘Everwanting…’ with oodles of bass grunt and tight precision. The singer’s soulful multi-tracked vocal lines were depicted exquisitely within the track’s myriad percussion details. Demonstrating the control and grip of the Bryston and Anthem but with the velvety midband richness of the ATC, the Parasound’s ability to resolve detail, while remaining composed and easy on the ear, proved the equal of my ‘reference’ Levinson amplifier."
