Parasound’s John Curl has been designing phono preamplifiers for over 30 years but this new JC3 ‘Junior’ version of the JC3+ will be his most compact and affordable yet.

With turntable and vinyl sales still growing this new phono preamp boasts a plethora of features including 50 to 550 ohm continuously variable MC impedance, mono switch to improve the sound of older vinyl and a Carl Thompson designed circuit board.

The JC3 Junior specification boasts RIAA accuracy to within 0.2dB, S/N ratio up to 94dB and THD below 0.02%. Low level circuitry is housed in isolated sub enclosures and the design uses branded audiophile components, from the likes of Vishay-Dale, Vampire and Neutrik, throughout. Catering for a wide range of MM and MC cartridges, the JC3 Junior features selectable gain output, 24kt gold plated balanced and single ended output terminals, and a 12v trigger. 

The new JC3 Junior is available in Silver or Black and will be available in the UK from October at an SRP of £2,199.00
