"That Parasound box is the bomb. You would not believe how good it made a 200-gram copy of Hotel California sound. It totally smoked the CD in my A/B comparison. Bass was big and creamy smooth. The vocals were like live in the studio. And the top end was crystal clear and sizzling from my Bostons. That Parabox was the best $150 I've spent in a while. I am amazed at how quiet the system was during the track runoffs. This set up made that 30-year-old Marantz sound like high-end new gear. You are the man. Making the world safe and affordable for old-school audio geeks like me." - (F.D. - Parasound customer)
