Parasound JC3 Jr.The Parasound Junior is, without a doubt in my mind, the best under-$2000 solid-state phono stage I have ever heard, or even know about.
– Positive Feedback

..the stereo soundstage is well proportioned and clearly defines, with a good sense of width and depth. Tonally things are smooth and balanced.
– Hi-Fi News

Even on a familiar mono track like The Beatles’ “Revolution” (fast tempo, not “Revolution 1” from the White Album) Jr. hit me with an onrushing wave of guitar distortion and nerve-shredding feedback so fraught with intensity that it was almost like hearing the cut anew. Low-level detail was equally superb while lower mids and bass octaves were taut in pitch, dense in timbre, and brimming with complexity.
– The Absolute Sound (Neil Gardner)

The Parasound JC 3 Jr. performed way beyond its price class…a fantastic boon to audiophiles everywhere. I cannot recommend it more emphatically!
– Positive Feedback

It’s quiet, quiet, quiet; paints a big soundstage and is incredibly dynamic. Like the more expensive models, you have balanced and single ended output options and the choice of a fixed 47k loading or a variable 50-500 ohm MC setting, with three gain settings; 40, 50, and 60db.

It is dead silent. It is mellifluous. It is sophisticated. It is truly high definition. It yields rock solid imaging and great clarity.
– Positive Feedback

The JC 3 Jr. performs the admirable trick of allowing all that detail and texture to come through and paints it in a realistic manner – not harsh or sibilant, but in the right context of the music. Switching to a Japanese pressing of Rickie Lee Jones’s self-titled debut album, the JC 3 Jr. again allowed for a very enjoyable rendition. Rhythm and dynamics are well rendered and the mid-high forward balance of most Japanese reissues is welcome, not something to be feared.

OUTSTANDING . among the best.
Providing pace, punch and panache, the Parasound pack plenty of power
– Hi- Fi World

I for one find the Halo JC 3 Jr outstanding for value and performance.
– hometheaterhifi

..it remains enjoyably engaging at all times, yet largely agnostic about the music you choose to use.
