NewClassic 200Pre

Like all NewClassic products, the model 200Pre represents a new generation of affordable, high-performance audio products from Parasound. The heart of the 200Pre is a versatile analogue signal path which includes analogue bass management with high-pass and low-pass outputs. The 200Pre also uses the same Burr-Brown 192kHz-24 bit DAC found in the Halo P5 to enable USB, and optical and coaxial digital audio inputs.

The Parasound 200Pre has a phono input (MM/MC), two line inputs, theatre bypass for L, R and two subs, digital USB, coaxial and optical inputs and a front panel auxiliary line level input with 12dB of gain for portable devices. The bass management circuit includes a variable 20–140Hz high-pass crossover, an 80Hz low-pass subwoofer output and a full range subwoofer output. Subwoofer switching and level is able to be managed via remote control. The Parasound 200Pre has both default and programmed turn-on volume levels, plus input level matching. It also comes with a dedicated headphone amplifier.
