Parasound Halo P3 Stereo Preamplifier Reviewed

 

How many near state-of-the-art preamps are priced under $800? The Halo P3 is on that short list. The P3 is musical, involving, has a built-in phono stage, and is as easy to use as a light switch. It's also one of Andrew Robinson's all-time favorite...

The P3's sound is musical and involving, with just a touch ofupper-end energy mixed with a midrange that is to die for in its pricerange. Female vocals and well-recorded trios and or/live mixes soundutterly fantastic through the P3 ; The P3's smooth...

The P3's built-in phono stage is a welcome addition and a nice touch,but it is far from the best there is and can be bested by a marginalinvestment in an outboard third-party stage ; The P3's bass prowess is not as deep or defined as that of, say,...

The Parasound P3 preamplifier at $799 retail is the absolute rightproduct for today's audiophile enthusiast on a budget. In a world gonemad over HDMI and Blu-ray, the P3 fits the bill and speaks to a moresensible time in a meaningful way by not trying...

Parasound Halo P3 Balanced Preamplifier Preamplifiers

 

I have never felt compelled to do a review of product before I bought this preamp. To say I was disappointed is an understatement. This preamp sounds pretty good in most respects but has almost no bass at all and what bass it does have is very muffled...

Purchased this preamp after much consideration of the Anthem TLP-1, AMC1100, as well as Adcom and B&K models. I decided on the Halo P3 because it had the features I needed (direct input/outputs, adjustable tone/contour, remote, and balance functions)....
