There’s a new stereo preamplifier on the market for the custom installation crowd. Parasound’s Model 2100, part of the New Classic series, is an audiophile-grade preamp with a high-current power supply and low-noise circuit topology. The unit sports seven line-level inputs including one that can be switched to a phono input with correct gain and load impedance for both moving-magnet and moving-coil cartridges. There’s also a front-panel input jack for MP3 players with an automatic 12dB gain offset to match the volume level of an iPod with that of other source components. For installers, the Model 1200 packs two-way RS-232, discrete IR codes for power on and off, and infrared input and loop out jacks for use with IR repeater systems. Optional automatic turn-on is available for either AC power or 12V trigger inputs with 12V trigger input and output jacks.
