About the Parasound NewClassic 200 Pre

A lot of ways to listen to your sources

The Parasound's NewClassic 200 Pre preamp really impresses us with its sound quality and range of features — and its price. With optical, coaxial and USB digital inputs running through the 200's Burr-Brown 24-bit/192kHz DAC, the 200 will bring out the best from your digital sources. Three analog inputs — including a phono stage for moving magnet and moving coil cartridges — give you flexibility for your analog sources.

The Parasound's NewClassic 200 Pre preamp really impresses us with its sound quality and range of features — and its price. With optical, coaxial and USB digital inputs running through the 200's Burr-Brown 24-bit/192kHz DAC, the 200 will bring out the best from your digital sources. Three analog inputs — including a phono stage for moving magnet and moving coil cartridges — give you flexibility for your analog sources.

If you're new to using a separate preamp, the 200 Pre is a great way to start, with its compact design, flexible system setup options, and clean, precise sound.

Speaker options and control

Along with its flexible input array, the 200 offers a number of useful ways to configure your speakers. It features two mono subwoofer outputs and a handy subwoofer level control that's accessible from the front panel. You can even use one subwoofer output to feed a mono full-range listening zone if, for example, you want music in the kitchen or bathroom off your main listening room.

The 200's switchable, adjustable high-pass crossover comes in handy when you're using a subwoofer in addition to your main speakers. It allows your amp to reproduce only the frequencies that aren't covered by your sub, giving you the most efficient use of your available power. Dedicated "bypass" inputs for mains and subwoofers let you integrate the 200 Pre seamlessly with your home theater setup.
