The Perfect Power Amp for Smaller Rooms
Thanks to Parasound, anybody can afford to get onboard its New Classic series of amplifiers. With an advanced and extremely efficient low-heat design, this superb new product line of power amps runs cooler than previous Parasound Classic series models, making these amps ideal for rack or cabinet mounting. The newly designed power supplies deliver all the voltage you need for transient peaks in musical programs and stunning special effects.
The Model 275 is the perfect amplifier for smaller rooms with its 75-watt-per-channel output at 8 ohms and 125 watts at 4 ohms. It will also deliver 200 watts into 8 ohms or 4 ohms in bridged mono mode. And it boasts 30 amps of peak current per channel for superior resolution of demanding musical peaks. The sound quality is pure Parasound pleasure, of course. Looking for lots of capability in a slim silhouette chassis? The Model 275 is half the size of its predecessor HCA-750A.
Fully Discrete Circuitry
Fully discrete circuitry with a large toroidal transformer keeps the noise floor exceptionally low and the musical signal pure. The 'Class AB' circuitry provides efficient operation with less heat output than pure 'Class A' for the highest degree of reliability with DC servo and relay protection circuitry. Standby, channel status, and high temperature indicators keep you informed of the operation status.
Ideal for Custom Installations
The New Classic amplifiers have several features that make them ideal for custom installation. These include automatic switch on and off when the amplifier detects the presence or absence of an audio signal. It can also switch on and off via its DC trigger with looping output. The soft touch power buttons glow in standby mode.
The Model 275 can drive and select two speaker pairs (or two mono bridged speakers) with two pairs of speaker terminals and speaker select buttons with relay switching.
Other features include handy rear-panel gain controls, a ground lift switch for helping eliminate system-induced hum problems, gold-plated RCA input jacks and loop output jacks, and heavy-duty 24K gold-plated five-way speaker terminals.

I was looking for amplification for my recently purchased Kef Q300's - I had settled on an integrated Yamaha Amp, or a B-Stock 2100 Preamp and the 275 v2 amp. I have to admit that I was a bit reluctant to purchase B-Stock without knowing the product's history, but it really is a good value based on the other options I was considering. After speaking with Tim Hahn, I took the plunge and placed my order. Shipping was really fast, received the items the next day and I chose free shipping. The items looked like new and sound fantastic! I would definitely recommend this amp if you are looking for a step up from the mass market options at best buy, etc.. I also highly recommend working with Tim as he was very helpful and accommodated all of my newbie questions...he's the man!
