Parasound Halo JC 2 BP Home Theater Preamplifier with Bypass

Your new Parasound Halo JC 2 BP preamplifier represents the pinnacle of analog audio technology. The JC 2 was originally conceived by Parasound president, Richard Schram, as a companion for the famed Halo JC 1 mono power amplifier. In the spirit of the JC 1, Parasound commissioned John Curl and CTC builders to design a two channel preamplifier without compromise. It uses the highest quality parts and achieves a higher level of sonic and measured performance than any preamplifier we’ve made since Parasound was founded in 1981. We’re proud to offer you this exceptional audio component, knowing that it will bring you many years of enjoyment and dependability.

What is the JC 2 BP Bypass

The JC 2 BP bypass enables you to blend the JC 2 BP into a surround sound system by inserting it into the Left and Right channel signal path “downstream” between your surround processor or receiver and the power amplifier for your Left and Right speakers.

How does the JC 2 BP Bypass work

The JC 2 BP Bypass locks out the master volume control and the left and right channel gain controls so its output level is fixed at unity gain. When the JC 2 BP output is fixed at unity gain the signal level at its output jacks is the same as the signal level at its input jacks. The JC 2 BP will be transparent to the left and right channel analog line level outputs from your surround
processor or receiver. This will allow you to share amplifier(s) and speakers with both the JC 2 BP and your surround sound system. Your analog sources will continue to be routed through the JC 2 BP and the left and right channel signals from your surround processor or receiver will be unaffected by the JC 2 BP as they pass through it. The Bypass function requires the JC 2 BP to be powered on, since its bypass circuit is active. The Bypass function in the JC 2 BP has been accomplished without modifying the JC 2 left and right channel audio boards in any way. The JC 2 BP measures and sounds identical to the JC 2 in every respect.
