Parasound HINT 6 Halo Integrated Amplifier $2995 Review

May 17, 2023 § Leave a comment

The DAC section of the HINT 6 provided a wonderful foil to the sameness of digital that can be apparent when streaming a variety of genres. Even great-sounding DACs can impart a common cleanliness to the sound of any recording played through them. Without being too revealing or edgy the HINT 6 DAC stepped out of the way of the music better than the outboard options I tried for comparison. Hoodoo Man Blues by Junior Wells and Buddy Guy (Delmark, 1965) is a classic slab of Chicago blues that sonically stands apart from most ‘60’s blues albums. The sound has an immediacy that is apparent on virtually any system. It’s a studio record that doesn’t sound like it came from a studio—it jumps right out and grabs the listener. This raw effect was more present when using the HINT’s own DAC than the Ferrum ERCO which kept things slightly more reserved.
