This phono preamp hardly needs an introduction. The Parasound JC 3, a John Curl designed preamplifier, is a modern classic. Its design is minimal but deeply thoughtful. A similar phonostage of the JC 2 linestage preamp was miniaturized so as not to act as such a noise inducing antenna. Curl then introduced a sophisticated power supply which employed a R-core transformer, again, a move which helped greatly to reduce noise. The result is a contemporary phono preamp that does away with things such as infinitely adjustable load settings and leaves you with a stark black background on which to deliver one of the most warm and inviting balance of tone and soundstage you're likely to hear from a piece of audio equipment.
This unit is in excellent condition both operationally and cosmetically. Original box, packing, and manual is included.
