Parasound launches the JC3 Jr designed by John Curl.

Parasound is proud to announce the launch of the JC3 Jr- a new, slimmer, more affordable  ‘Reference class’ HALO Phono Preamp with many of the features and benefits of the multi-award winning JC3+ !

The JC3 Jr has been designed by the legendary pre-amp designer John Curl (designer of many highly respected world class audiophile preamps).  The JC3 JR is the lowest cost product to ever bear his name.
