«The John Curl–designed Halo JC 3+ is the best commercially available phono preamplifier I’ve used—period.»
-Stereophile Recommended Component – 2018
“This sturdy, well-built, and – at nearly 20 pounds – quite beefy unit, represents electronics wunderkind John Curl’s latest thinking on affordable phono pre-amplification. The results are magical: impressively wide dynamics, superb neutrality, excellent detail retrieval, wide staging, holographic imaging, and more than a whiff of the air and ambiance one gets from great tube gear. In the real world, it doesn’t get much better.
– Stereo Times
The JC 3+ conveys a heady mix of profound silence and kick-butt energy.

“As with the JC 1 and 2, the construction quality of the Halo JC 3 is first-rate.”
“Like the Vendetta, the JC 3 wasn’t merely quiet, or even really, really quiet-it was silent.”
“In every case the portrayal of the recorded acoustic was exquisitely detailed.”
“It’s superb at both frequency extremes, and tonally it’s as close to neutral as any component I’ve heard.”
– Stereophile Brian Damkroger
