    Has anyone here listened to or purchased the new P6 preamp from Parasound? I have the P5 and in my opinion it's an extremely nice sounding pre. Parasound is claiming they upgraded the Dac, improved the phono stage, and also improved the volume control. They also added a 2nd optical. Would love to hear it, have you??

    If I were looking for a preamp in the $1500 range that would be the one I would look at first. Sorry, I haven’t heard it. I was using the P5 for a garage system for a couple of years before I went with an integrated amp (Rotel).

    Some time has passed since the P6 release so I thought I’d bump this thread.

    I’ve become a big fan of the P5, especially after comparing it to the Schiit Saga. The Saga was nice, but in my system I could not achieve the same depth to the sound stage that the P5 provided, so the Saga was returned.

    With the new volume design and better dac(among many other improvements), the P6 surprised me as I didn’t see it coming. I’m pretty surprised actually that Parasound has been so busy in upgrading several models.

    The classic line 2100 preamp was replaced and in the Halo line the A21, A23, A52,(brought back),Hint, and P5 were all updated.

    An all new amp, the JC 5 was also released. I haven’t kept up on the other lines, but it’s obvious that Parasound has been busy.

    That said, has anyone tried out the P 6?
