Customers dipping their tones into the world of vinyl get a lower-cost phono preamplifier option from Parasound-- the JC3 Junior, a compact version of the JC3+ preamp catering for a wide range of MM and MC cartridges.

JC3 JuniorThe JC3 Junior handles 50 to 550 ohm continuously, with variable MC impedance. It has a mono switch for use with older vinyl, and offers selectable gain output, gold-plated balanced and single-ended output terminals, and a 12V trigger for system integration. The S/N ratio reaches up to 94dB, while THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) is specified below 0.02%.

The low level circuitry is housed in isolated sub enclosures, and incorporates components from Neutrik, Vishay-Dale and Vampire, many identical to those found in its bigger JC3+ sibling. All is found inside an all-new Halo chassis just 1 rack-space tall.

The JC3 Junior is available with black or silver finish from mid-October 2017.
