Parasound Debuts NewClassic 200 Pre – Stereo Preamplifier & DAC

Parasound NewClassic 200 Pre

Parasound has introduced the NewClassic 200 Pre analog audio preamplifier and DAC combo in a one rack-space chassis. It claims outstanding sound quality, excellent connectivity, and versatility at an affordable price of $895.

Parasound NewClassic 200 Pre Front

The 200 Pre offers up a versatile analog signal path which includes analog bass management with high pass and low pass outputs. It has inputs for just about any source including phono MM/MC, two line inputs, theater bypass for L, R and two subs, digital USB, Coax and Optical and a front panel Aux line level input with an automatic 12 dB gain increase to improve sound quality for portable devices. 

The built-in DAC features a Burr-Brown IC with circuitry pulled directly out of Parasound’s award-winning Halo P5 preamplifier. The 200 Pre home theater bypass and DAC are virtually identical with an adjustable 20-140 Hz high-pass crossover for the L and R outputs, and it uses the same highly-regarded Burr-Brown DAC. 

Parasound NewClassic 200 Pre Back

Convenience and custom installation features include turn-on volume preset, a favorite volume setting, a bi-directional RS232 serial port, rear panel IR input and 12V trigger output. Input offset (level matching) ensures that all sources play at the same level, regardless of their output levels. The dimmable front panel LCD display facilitates assigning input names for every source input. The back-lit remote control includes adjustments for L-R balance, bass and treble adjustment, subwoofer on-off and even subwoofer level.

Price and Availability

The Parasound NewClassic 200 Pre is available now with an MSRP of $895.
