Parasound JC 5 Stereo Power Amplifier


Parasounds’ top of the line stereo amplifier, the JC 5 is ultra high bias class A/AB and outputs up to 600 Watts per channel or 1200 watts when used in bridged mode. Incredibly powerful and reliable, the JC 5 is our go-to pick for a stereo amplifier in this range. 

Parasound JC 5

Dual mono input stages. Balanced inputs with discrete circuits. Vampire gold plated RCA input and loop output jacks. Everything about the JC 5 exudes quality. Pair that with the incredible power of up to 1200 Watts, and its easy to see why we recommend this amp so heavily.

The JC 5 outputs 400 Watts per channel at 8 Ohms, 600 Watts per channel at 4 Ohms, and 1200 Watts when ran in bridged mode. The peak current per channel is 90 amperes, and all of your equipment is protected by the included DC servo and relay protection circuits.
