Parasound Amplifier

Can Best Buy stock Parasound A51 Amplifiers to go with Martin Logan electrostatic speakers since they provide 400w at 4ohms all channels driven?

@bobberuchi is most likely correct here, but I guess you never know. Would anyone else like to see us carry these amps? Make sure to vote for an idea if you like it.

Parasound with one of the very top end of audio amplifiers on the market. 


Looking at the stores that do carry Parasound I tend to think Parasound would not allow their products to be sold at BB.  Almost all the authorized dealers are high end Audio/Video stores that specialize in a lot of customized setups.

It is not outside of the realm of possibility. 


Best Buy does carry a selction of CNO (Cost is No Object) Amplifiers.


Such as Marantz, Mark Levinson, and some others.  


BB does carry the Marantz SR8015 that does support 4 OHMs

Sales Team,  I wanted to write to your company.  I have been doing alot of research and from what I have found it appears you have the some of the best products on the market.  I am curious as to why you do not offer Parasound specifically the A51 5 channel amp for sale at Best Buy.  Best Buy offers the Martin Logan speaker line. The A51 can produce 400 watts at 4 ohms all channels driven.  This is the power needed for the electrostatic speaker.  I feel the company is losing out on a huge amount potential revenue. If customers were informed of the possible options to pair with this product they would not be purchasing other amplifiers that cost just as much or more and do not offer the level of quality that your product brings to the table.  Respectfully, Jacob

I agree Parasound is one of the top end amplifiers on the market.  


But amplifiers at that level are probably less than .01% market share of amplifiers purchased annually, and are generally going to be purchased by people who are paying someone to do a full on home theater install that is going to be tens of thousands of dollars. 


I have a friend who owns just such a company and he does carry Parasound as one of his offerings.  But he is looking at the $20,000 plus setups and that is before the TV and wire. 


Companies like BB are probably better off staying away from them.  At this level of power and cost you really want to get it professionaly set up unless you are very comfortable with such things. 


Yes Best Buy does carry some of the best products on the market, but they cannot carry all of them.  Most customer are not going to be willing to pay $5000 for just the receiver. 


I am not an employee of Best Buy. All opinions and comments are my own.
