Description

Parasound Halo Integrated in great condition. Used for a few months before the client upgraded to separates.  No box but we do have the manual and remote.

From Stereophile:

After lots of listening, I realized that it has a recognizable sonic personality: easy flowing, mostly smooth, and decidedly mellow. I imagine a big part of this perceived mellowness might be a result of John Curl’s disdain for odd-order distortion. But don’t worry—it’s not milquetoast mellow or unwashed-hippy-stoner mellow. It is, instead, an everything’s-under-control, don’t-worry-now mellow. The Halo played tunes and sang songs as if they mattered. It stuck close to the facts. It was never boring. It frequently enhanced my feelings of devotion and mindfulness.
