Platinum-selling rock star Fish is backing Parasound. He is endorsing Parasound’s Halo integrated amplifier, which will be used to monitor his studio recordings prior to release, "in order to ensure an authentic playback experience in the home."

The artist says the upcoming album, Weltschmerz, which is currently being recorded in a dedicated studio facility, will be monitored on the Parasound system before commercial pressings are made.

“I have been listening extensively to the Parasound Halo amplifier ever since it was installed and am blown away by its combination of accuracy and musicality,” enthuses Fish. “The first night with it involved a few glasses and playing albums into the small hours – time ran away with me as the sound was so absorbing. I am under no illusion that it is going to contribute hugely to the creation of my next studio album and can’t wait to hear the results as we start the recording process. In the meantime, my extensive music collection is going to get some serious and very enjoyable listening!”

Fish (aka Derek Dick) has forged a successful solo artist after fronting Marillion during the Eighties, releasing 12 albums that have covered multiple genres, including rock, pop and traditional folk.

The Halo Integrated amp features an ESS Sabre32 Reference DSD capable DAC, MM/MC phono stage, balanced XLRs and analogue bass management. Power output is rated at 160-watts per channel.

The endorsement is a considerable coup for UK Parasound distributor, Connected Distribution, who installed the amplifier in Fish’s premises in conjunction with Doncaster-based Parasound retailer Audio Elevation.

“To have an artist of Fish’s standing choose to equip his home with the Halo amplifier is a testament to the dedication shown by Richard Schram, and his team at Parasound, to produce amplifiers that allow artists to capture their music without compromise and music lovers to enjoy it sounding as good as it possibly can,” says Mike Bonnette, technical director of Connected Distribution. “We are delighted that Fish has agreed to act as an endorsee for this superb amplifier and look forward very much to hearing the next album, which will be the first to have been monitored using the Halo.”
