Compact yet very capable amplifier from Parasound, with the same great sonic fingerprint found in all of their amplifiers.

"Born of the original Zamp, Parasound's new-generation Zamp v.2 offers a host of new features including loop out jacks, ground lift, audio and DC triggering, and a sleek, smooth modern skin.

Two discrete channels of 30 watts each offer the power to propel desktop, game, tv and distributed home audio systems way past "good enough" and far into the "WOW" zone. Start with just one; we'll be here when you want more!"

  • The Zamp is so cute. Is it a serious amplifer?

    Why yes, it is! The Zamp incorporates a lot of the same technology that make all our amplifiers great. Torroidal transformers, discrete components, JFET inputs, BiPolar outputs, and high quality parts throughout.

The SkyFi Testing Process for Solid State Amplifiers:

We start with a visual inspection of all internal components to make sure there are no signs of stress or aging. Capacitors are checked for telltale sings of bulging or leaking, resistors are checked for signs of overheating or cracking, and transistors are checked for signs of stress or damage.

We then power up the unit carefully and run a simple 1k sine wave while monitoring the output on an oscilloscope for signs of distortion or noise. Finally, we run the amplifier to its full rated power into the appropriate resistive load provided by our Sencore amplifier tester. If there is an issue, it will usually be noticeable at this point. If everything reads clean, we will often test for THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) measured by our Keithley distortion meter, and compare it against the original manufacturers specifications. The amplifier then remains powered on to "burn in" on our test bench for a few hours to make sure there are no heat related issues. If there are balanced inputs available they will be also be tested.

Final testing involves pushing actual music thorough the amplifier. We've learned over time that some issues are only noticeable to a trained ear while listening to familiar source material. Our test bench has reference vintage KEF speakers that we're very familiar with which quickly reveal any discrepancies. Some amplifiers will then move into our listening room where they are tested with our in-house reference speakers of choice.
