The No.53 ($25,000 each; $50,000/pair) is Mark Levinson's first new Reference series monoblock since the No.33, way back in 1993, when Madrigal owned the company. Like other Mark Levinson products, it is manufactured at an independent facility in Massachusetts."

Of course, it's hard to argue with Parasound's build quality and sound, but I still hate to hear about so many US companies outsourcing their products.

DALI Epicon 2 front speakers; DALI Epicon Vokal center speaker; Definitive Technology ProMonitor 1000 surrounds; SVS SB 13 Ultra subwoofer; Marantz AV 8801 pre/pro; Parasound Halo A51 power amp; Sony XA5400ES SACD player; Oppo BDP 105 SACD/Blu-ray player; Sennheiser HD 800 headphones; Woo Audio WA6 headphone amp.

I don't think you can buy just the JBL SDP-40 outright. Synthesis dealers are about selling a complete solution, not the individual pieces.

Well that's the idea they try to sell, but in reality things aren't that way...

Check here as an example... I can buy the SDP-40 in a minute and for a great price:

http://bestofaudio.com/product_info.php?manufacturers_id=90&products_id=9704

This is only an example, but as you can see we can buy whatever we want in separates. But one of these days i will try the speakers from JBL Synthesis...

Good points but I think in Parasounds case "not for all" That being able to design there products in the USA but build them out of the country ables them to keep the costs down and offer the public a better product for a lesser price . Now again that's not the case for all manufactures that do that some not only cut cost building out of the USA but also in the parts, design and quality control . I thank Parasound for taking the avenue they have because it allowed me to own a amp at a quality and performance level I would normally not be able to afford smile.gif

+2

All this talk of where it's made is kinda pointless. All anyone needs to know is that the amps are built like a brick s**thouse, sound excellent, are affordable, and are backed by a sound warranty and company to match. Add to that a customer service dept that is rivaled by none, an owner that personally responds to questions at all hours of the day including weekends and holidays makes Parasound the company to beat.

Disclaimer, I am not in any way affiliated with Parasound other than having a love for the sound they manufacture............in Taiwan of all places! wink.gifbiggrin.gif

As one of the thousands of parasound amp owners who dont live in the usa. I could care less if its made in us or Taiwan . From my dealings with Richard I can't fathom him ever having a factory with sweat shop conditions . He is too classy.

Looking forward to when it does become available.
Looking forward to seeing a review as well.

Guess that's not what the discussion is about. What matters here is that usually "Made in Japan" for example means more care on assembly and better products than "Made in China" or "Taiwan".

And don't go for the "classy" because Apple guys are also classy and in China they make 8000 iphones per day without conditions. But those are other stories, and they are not called here.

I personally don't believe that the components go from USA to Taiwan, they are manufactured there.

But, like i said, that is not going to be a reason for my not to buy, and besides, they put only a small sticker below the power socket that i will remove right away.

And how does that change anything?? You and everyone else still knows where Parasound amps are made.

Face the facts! Ever since NAFTA, US industries have run from the US shores. The overall quality of any given brand is strictly determined by the company's oversight of manufacturing...not where that manufacturing takes place.

Yes, it is even better if they own their own manufacturing plants, like B&W group that includes Classe, Rotel and B&W

About a decade ago I did some work for a guy who's job was to advise companies what would be the best location for a plant, depending on the product being built. He told me that even in China, the companies who put out the best products were the ones who had hands on supervision. As opposed to the companies who left the QC until after the products were shipped to the States.
And maybe shared a manufacturing plant with other brands.
Certainly makes sense.

I am not trying to play the "good guy" here by posting that comment, just saying...
But as i referred i am going to buy Parasound anyway, that is not something that will stop me. Besides if we were in Parasound place we would do the same to low our costs.

Wells guys I think today will be the day I hook my A21 up to my 2ch setup . It's been running my fronts in my HT. I was waiting for my NAD 326bee to burn in which btw has done a fine job powering my power hungry 4ohm Dynaudio focus 160s . I'm going use the NAD as a pre/amp I'm thinking it should sound pretty good with the A21 .EDIT : My 356 bee oops lol

Well just finished the switch I'm beyond words really wasnt expecting this big of a difference . The NAD 356bee is a fine IA but felt my Dyn 160s would prosper from the power and finess of the A21 . I'm now using the NAD as a Pre/amp and letting the A21 handle providing the power and what a great combo they really mate well . I'm listening to some Nils Lofgren Acoustic live and what a treat ! The sound stage got bigger really spread out nice , more detail . All the instruments sounds like there farther apart and silky smooth . I especially noticed it with some Miles Davis and Chick Corea . It looks like the A21 will be staying with my 2ch setup biggrin.gif What a strong performer this A21 is it really stepped up to the plate and made a huge difference . That says a lot to because I was very happy with my NAD but just had to see what the Halo could do . It didn't disappoint !

Yes and I'm doing some revisiting as we speak biggrin.gif I love it how when you make changes for the better and it's like getting new music all over again hearing things you haven't heard before and what you have heard sounds better . It's very rewarding in our Hobby because theres so many twists and turns in our learning curve a long the way. .

True that.........I can't tell you how many times I thought for sure I had my system ultimately dialed in only to read something here on AVS and apply that to my system and voila, mo bettah all over again. This hobby is just one big ass learning curve if you're willing to be humble enough to accept the fact that you may not have things ultimately dialed in and are willing to experiment.

Don't get to lost in your re-visitations and do come out once in awhile and get something to eat! biggrin.gif

So true I was fighting changing out the A21 from my HT it sounded so good there and was really happy with my little NAD for 2 ch . But I kept feeling it was a waste since I do more critical listening for 2 ch music and I was leaving some performance on the table .On paper the A21 should take no prisoners and it didn't biggrin.gif
I did big break away very briefly to throw a chicken wrap in the microwave tongue.gif

That is not an official dealer and therefore not the same thing. There is absolutely no warranty for anything you buy at that site. This is a known unauthorized dealer for nearly ever audio product they claim to have in stock. The goods are likely used, stolen, or acquired via other illicit means. The domain is registered out of Pakistan. Seems legit. rolleyes.gif

Google. wink.gif You can usually find a registrar record for domain name registrations. This is called a whois domain lookup. I don't know how accurate some of them are.

It isn't uncommon for these sites to operate out of another country. A big giveaway is not allow any local pickup / interaction. Searching for the website domain usually gives a thread of other people asking if the site is legit. There was a past thread on AVS: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1265469/best-of-audio-legit

They also appear on audio manufactures known list of unauthorized vendors. I wouldn't be surprised if many of these websites are run by the same people and they keep changing the names.

I don't know if the JC1 is also made in taiwan...because to make a Home Theater of JC1's..give me a break! With that cash i have the Datasat RA7300 and for less. I am 100% int movies, not music at all.

All Parasound products, speakers aside, are made in Taiwan under close supervision of Richard and pals. If you like the bang for the buck aspect of their stuff than you have to deal with the fact that they are not made in the USA.

I've come to the conclusion regardless of the product some folks will never be happy so they'll find out what they can to satisfy there need . Fortunately with Parasound in regards to there amps that's the only thing they can say lol . In all my years I've never seen a single product on a forum that didn't get bashed and that says a lot .
