Parasound Halo JC1 vs MEGAschino
« on: 27 Jan 2018, 04:05 pm »
Hey guys,
Can anyone give me a breakdown comparison of these two amps? Parasound has a nice track record but the new MEGAschino sounds like a pretty well-received alternative. I realize a lot of this is personal perception, but I don’t really have a great way to get my ears on either of these. Just starting to build my new rig and would like some input before I pull the trigger.

I heard some modded JC-1's on YG speakers and the sound was so razor sharp I could not stay in the same room. I have never had that with Tommy's amps. Very smooth and musical.

Unless you were listening to the same speakers on the maraschino that’s not a very valid comparison. I haven’t heard the maraschino but have heard the JC1’s. no sharpness like described with high end Ushers and Gamuts. I’m sure both amps are great.
