Parasound has introduced a 350-watts-per-channel stereo amplifier in its ZoneMaster line of components for custom and commercial installation. The new Parasound ZoneMaster 2350 draws on the company's heritage of low-noise, high-resolution analog input stages and bass management, combined with Class D amplification to drive up to 600 watts per channel in typical 4-ohm custom applications.
In addition to providing high power and sound quality to stereo speakers, the Parasound ZoneMaster 2350 offers a full package of installer-friendly features that have proven popular on previous ZoneMaster amplifiers. These include line-level and speaker-level inputs, A/B/both speaker outputs, mono/stereo switching, 30/80-Hz high-pass filters for improved efficiency with small speakers, 80-Hz low pass filters to drive subwoofers, lop outputs, and auto-sensing/12-volt trigger turn-on.
"In the three years since we launched the ZoneMaster line at CEDIA 2014, we've had great feedback from the custom installers and integrators who've adopted the line,” said Richard Schram, Parasound's president and founder. “But, as one dealer put it, 'there are times when you just need more horsepower'—for big speakers, passive subs, and long chains of small speakers—hence the ZoneMaster 2350."
The Parasound ZoneMaster 2350 will be available in the fourth quarter with an MSRP of $1,295.
