    I know these have been discontinued, but there are a number available in the used market. Any comments, they would be used to drive a pair of Paradigm Studio Ref 100s. Also, anyone know when Parasound will be releasing their new series of amps???

    Parasound amps and Paradigm Ref speakers have a very nice synergy. I drove my 100's with a 2003 and then a 2205at both sounded very very good. It topped the RX-V1 and Citation 7.1 and the DSP-A1.With the power of the amp it should make the 100's sing!

    Michael,
    Not sure if the 3500 is available anywhere. However they did have it at Audio Advisor a while back on clearance. If it is anything like the 2205 which I am sure it is,,it will be a winner.

    I checked Audio Advisor and can't seem to find the 3500 on their webpage.
    This one produced 350 watts x 2 I believe and would make a nice mate with the 2205.

    The 3500 is the ultimate expression from John Curl.
    380w x 2. Load invariant. Fully monoblocked. Two powersupplies, two powercords, two switches, mirrored contruction.
    It would be an excellent match for any Parasound multichannel owner. I'd love one.
    They sold like crap due to the popularity of the 5 channels.

    Trevor,
    So are you thinking of adding this amp to your 2205 to have a full 7 channels of parasound amplification???
