Parasound's NewClassic Model 2125 power amplifier just received an update. It's been reborn as the NewClassic Model 2125 v.2. Parasound's NewClassic Model 2125 has been one of the company's most popular two-channel power amplifier. Its winning combination of power, features, build quality, and affordability make it a must-have for all but the most demanding systems. And the THX Ultra2 certification means that it meets the highest performance standards for convincing reproduction of movie soundtracks. This the new v.2 version offers several new features for enhanced performance and convenience. First is a new A/B speaker button lockout switch on the rear panel. When this switch is set to Lockout, the front panel A and B buttons are disabled and speakers A and B will always be on. This can be particularly useful for a professional audio installer who never intends for the client to use the front panel buttons. The new ultra-sensitive two-position audio trigger allowed Parasound to eliminate the audio trigger sensitivity knob. A 'Quieter' setting will automatically turn on the amp at a very low volume. If this isn't sensitive enough for your system needs, you can also use the 'Louder' setting. Updated front and rear cosmetics give the v.2 amps a fresh new look. The front panel has been updated with rounded corners, a new display lens, and updated silk screening. The rear panel has updated silk screening making it easier to read and understand the functions. The Model 2125 v2 delivers the high-resolution power you need for big entertainment. It offers 150-watt-per-channel output at 8 ohms and 225 watts at 4 ohms. It will also deliver a huge 400 watts into 8 ohms or 4 ohms in bridged mono mode. And it boasts 35 amps of peak current per channel for superior resolution of demanding musical peaks.
