Feature-Rich for it's Size

You can run the Zamp in stereo, or get two and run them both in bridged mono mode for more power. You can rack-mount this amp using the optional Parasound ZRK Kit, or even mount two side by side in a single rack space. The RCA stereo loop out makes it easy to daisy-chain multiple amps together.

Stereo gain controls on the rear panel let you dial in the lowest noise floor for your system. There's also a three-way switch for choosing how you want to turn the Zamp on and off — "audio" for automatic power-up when the amplifier senses an audio signal, "manual" for front button control, and "12V" to trigger the power from other components or controllers via 12-volt back-panel connections.

Plugging in to the front-panel 3.5mm headphone output disables the speaker output, so you can listen without disturbing the peace. And the detachable 3-prong power cord means you can upgrade to a better cable to clean up power feeding the amp.

Parasound's Most Affordable Amp
