  1. EQ for Subwoofers after Parasound P7

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Is it possible to use any of the MiniDSP units with Dirac capability between a Parasound P7 and a subwoofer? The P7 has no HDMI inputs or outputs. Are any of you aware of any means to use an equalizer with and analog preamp/processor?
  2. Parasound P/HP 850

    Two Channel Audio
    I have a parasound preamp and after an hour of listening to music last night the left channel stopped working. I have narrowed it down to this preamp. No left channel with headphones as well. What should I be looking for or is there a likely cause? Thank you. Erik

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Hi All, Probably showing my ignorance here, but I have been experiencing some pop/crackle coming from my 2 channel set up. The speakers are brand new and I have checked all cables, wires, etc. I swapped out the amp mentioned above with an Emotiva Mini-x currently not being used. The pop/crackle...
  4. Parasound vs. Emotiva

    Two Channel Audio
    Hi all. I finally got myself a pair of large bookshelf speakers for a dedicated 2-channel listening area. Rather than buying a new amp & pre amp, I chose to move my Parasound Z pre & Z amp into that room to drive the speakers. I had purchased an Emotiva Mini X A-100 awhile ago and thought it...

    What are my alternative analogue options when considering a multi-chanel analog preamp like the Parasound P7? I thought I read somewhere sometime ago about a competitors offering, but I dont remember what that was.

  12. Sunfire TGA-7401 vs. Parasound Halo A51 vs. Wyred 4 Sound MC5x500

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Any comments/opinions on these three amplifiers will be appreciated. According to what I have read so far, the Sunfire sounds warmer, but almost dull and muddy with the highs rolled off. Is this true? As for the Parasound, it sounds more neutral and offers a more "detailed" sound. Is this also...

    I've been looking at amps for about a month now and i narrowed it down to either the parasound 5250 or the emotiva xpa-5.
