Parasound NewClassic 2250 v.2

Great amp but it should not cost $900.00 more than it used to 2 years ago. Same amp same great performance. Not for $900 more. Crutchfield and Music Direct ran this amp at for much less. This is crazy.

Pros: Great amp

Cons: Price increase is ridiculous.

Parasound NewClassic 2250 v.2

I tried out this amp from a neighborhood dealer to replace an aging MC2100. The positives--a little more detailed than the 40 year old Mcintosh. The negatives--music did not sound like music (compared to the mac). On the Mc horns sounded like horns, flutes like flutes, etc. On the Parasound instruments sounded not real, not having quite the right tone. On the positive side, unit had plenty of power to drive my Ohm 2000's to punishing levels. I would recommend for home theater or house music, but if you listen primarily to classical look elsewhere.

Pros: power, detail

Cons: harsh, non-musical, bright

Parasound NewClassic 2250 v.2

I am very happy with my new Parasound Power Amp. It is just the ticket to power my two front speakers (Polk LSiM 707's). My Denon 7200 AVR was not capable of powering (at higher levels of volume) all of my speakers in my 5.1 system, hence the need for a separate power amp. Previously I had a Yamaha power amp and it developed some issues and had to be replaced. The Parasound 2250 v.2 is a very high quality product for not a huge amount of money. It is a bit heavy but it now sits very comfortably and stably on my new Solidsteel s2-5 rack.

Pros:

Cons:

The was game changing for me. I thought I was going to have to upgrade my tower speakers. Once I connected them to this amp. Mind-blowing. I went from having my receiver volume on 19 to now 39. Would definitely recommend.

This is a great power amp, very strong, stable down to 2 ohms, sounds fantastic. Had a Emotiva xpa 2 gen 2 and I don't miss it at all.

I'm currently using the Parasound New Classic 2250 v2 to power a pair of Dynaudio Excite X44 tower speakers in my main HiFi stereo system, with a Cambridge Audio Azur 851N acting as my Pre-Amp and DAC. The 2250 v2 is an excellent value for a power amplifier at around $1000. It has enough power to drive even some challenging speakers, and handle dramatic dynamic swings. The sound is clear, detailed, articulate, and punchy. It has a very low noise floor for its price point with crisp, detailed highs, clear mids, and nice bass slam. With my speakers and sources it's revealing enough that you can discern differences in recording qualities, and enjoy discovering some new details in your favorite songs if you're new to HiFi. However the 2250 v2, and Parasound equipment in general tends toward neutrality in presentation. Recordings that are a little flat or dry, can sound that way. Also, the amp sounds better after running for 30min or so to come up to operating temp. I have heard more enveloping, and more resolving amplifiers with Dynaudio speakers, but they also cost 3x as much as the 2250 v2.

Pros: Lots of power, nicely detailed, textured and articulate. Can deliver bass slam and big dynamic swings. Runs very cool for a class AB amplifier, and Parasound has a great reputation for service & reliability. Nice features for use with different applications.

Cons: Versatile, jack of all trades amplifier which is good at everything, but not truly spectacular at any one thing. If you really like lush warm sounding lower mids/upper base, or conversly a very forward sound, then there are probably better options than the New Classic 2250 v2 for your taste.
