    If you get information about the pre/pro, I'd be interested in seeing it.

    Looks good although they have been pushing this product back for licensing reasons as well as to work out some bugs. I can't reveal my source, but Parasound seems to be in some financial difficulty and really needs to be on top of their overseas production vendors to avoid delays after the specs are ready for the HALO line. To put it simply, Parasound's future really depends on the success of its HALO line of products and its ability to penetrate the hi end market, which is a step up from their mid-hi position.

    With the "disappearance" of EAD, I'm afraid that Parasound may also meet the same fate. We'll wait and see.
