EMM Labs Switchman 3 Preamp + Parasound Halo JC 1 Monoblocks

Hello!

Has anyone heard the COMBINATION of EMM Labs Switchman 3 Preamp and Parasound Halo JC 1 monoblocks?

I'm not interested in opinions as to whether each of them is good/bad, separately or in other combinations, only in whether THIS COMBINATION works well or not.

Thank you for your help!
Amir

A very specific combination, and very specific parameters on the response you desire. Good luck.

Thank you for wishing me luck!

When I have one component (EMM preamp) and am considering another (Parasound power amps), I believe it would be helpful to all involved to be VERY specific, not wasting anybody's time on writing irrelevant posts... :-)

Why don't you ask Ed Meitner himself? EMM doesn't make power amps so there would be no conflict.

Hi, JoeE!

Thank you for your suggestion.

I've asked both EMM Labs and Parasound.

Both said that, technically, there should be no problem.
None of them has had the opportunity to actually hear whether the COMBINATION works well or not, and let "The ears decide" :-)

Sometime, components that are superb with other components just don't work too well together... That's my concern.

By now I've already ordered the Parasound, and will try it out myself... :-)

Enjoy!
