Talking A52+

I have heard a lot of talk about the Parasound A52 on this forum. I thought you might be interested in this...

Hi all, a few updates.

I switched over an ran the 12V trigger cable from my receiver to the A23, and now it doesn't auto shutoff at low volume!

Second, I'm still getting some buzz, especially through my tweeters. I was considering buying a power conditioner (leaning towards a Furman Elite), but noticed some posts from a few years back where people (Rich) weren't necessarily recommending them.

Inputs/thoughts?

I have a question the Marantz 7702 puts out 1.2 volts through the pre amp outputs is that RMS or peak voltage. I bought a Parasound 5250 V1 and it states in the manual it needs 1 volt for THX levels and 1.6 volts to drive it to full power. So i am worried that i will not get the full power out of this amp and possibly clip the 7702 outputs could someone explain this to me thanks! I am worried about this as the LSIM polk speakers i have have a nominal impedance of 5 ohms and i am in a 5000 cubit foot room.

Sony Z9D / Marantz AV 7702 / Emotiva XPA-5 / Polk LSIM 705 / Polk LSIM 706C / Polk 702 FX / GoldenEar XXL / PS4 /

It's not likely that power conditioners will help. I tried a Torus on my Parasound amps and the only thing that reduced my hum to an extremely low level was using a HumX on each of my amps. My amps are on a separate circuit from my Datasat preamp/processor.

Datasat LS10 with Atmos / DTS X and Dirac Live cards __ Parasound Halo A31, Parasound Zonemaster 1250 bridged, Parasound Zonemaster 450 bridged
Procella P8 LCR, Procella P5iw and P5v for surround/Atmos speakers __ JTR Captivator S2 front-center, Dual Seaton Submersive on side walls, JTR Captivator S1 center-rear
Screen: 2.40:1 Seymour XD, 128" diagonal / 118" wide __ Projector: JVC 4910

Hello there,

I have a question for owners or enthusiasts alike that know more than me!

I have a short list of amplifiers that I am considering and would love some feedback. Here is the list below.

Parasound HCA-2200II
Proceed HPA 2 or 3
Citation 7.1
McCormack Power Drive DNA-1

Can anyone provide any feed back to their experiences and impressions or thoughts with these amps? I am really intrigued with comparison between the Parasound HCA -2200II and Citation 7.1. I love movies and probably 60/40 for movies.
but lately have been enamored with 2 channel music. I rub 4 ohm speakers and want to make sure which ever amp I decide to go with if I find one...will have enough power for anything I pair with it. I currently have KEF signature series model 1 4 ohm speakers which are pleasant to listen to with music. The last question is budget. What would be a fair to good price for these units? I suppose I like a neutral sound and not to bright. I hear the parasound is neutral and this unit has a lot of power to spare but due to this loses some clarity with the highs? would love some opinions here.

I know these units are 20 plus years old which is another concern and hope a service call wont need to happen for a while if I decide to go ahead with one. Im assuming all of these amp as AB right? with a smaller wattage load going to A?

[I]Video: Sony XBR-75X850C 75 inch 4k - Samsung 55inch 4k - 58 PANASONIC PZ850u plasma
4k-Blu Ray: Samsung UBD‑K8500 - PS3 -
Amp and power : Pioneer elite SC - 27 - Monster Power AVS 2000 Reference
Speakers and Sub : Def Tech BP 10s - Def Tech CLR 2000 - Def tech UIW BP/A in ceiling rears - Def tech BPX Rears - JTR Captivator 118HT
