The Parasound NewClassic 200 PRE is a new highly adaptable and very high quality two channel preamplifier.
The 200 PRE is a more modern incarnation in many respects, and that can be primarily seen with the addition of an extremely high quality DAC. The NewClassic 200 PRE now has the Burr-Brown 192kHz-24 bit DAC from the Halo series P 5. As such, the 200 PRE now also boasts USB, Coaxial and Optical digital inputs to fully accomodate this new feature. Alongside the addiiton of the DAC and connectivity options for the digital relam - the 200 PRE also has four analogue inputs, one of which is selectable as a dedicated phono input (MM/MC - selectable). All inputs also benefit from input level attenuation (source volume offset), accounting for a flexible amount of smoother source integration. Finally, as you would expect - nothing gets in the way of the audio purity internally - as the NewClassic 200 PRE enables pure analogue signal path from input to output.
As you would expect though - the input options are not where things stop. The NewClassic 200 PRE has a dedicated home theatre bypass input alongside dedicated outputs for a subwoofer, and both fixed or variable (selectable) outputs too. Obviously, for home 'theatre' integration or more specifically 2.1 integration as well it also hosts analogue bass management with both a dedicated high-pass adjustable crossover and 80Hz low pass subwoofer output. The sub output can also be configured for usage as a dedicated mono output too.
