So says Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity magazine.

Read the review here:

Here is the conclusion:

‘Parasound has long been admired for their preamplifiers and power amplifiers. The JC 1+ monoblock power amplifier is their latest achievement, and it truly is an achievement to the highest degree. It has enough power (450 watts RMS into 8 Ohms) to drive any speaker, and the parts quality is a statement on its own. The sound is exemplary and one would expect that from the almost $17,000/pair price, but high price is no guarantee of quality for any product. It has to be verified. Proof of Performance for the Parasound has been verified. They are worth the price.’
