Integrated amp and CD player equipped with the Swedish brand’s new system management tech
The latest network components from Primare – the I35 Prisma integrated amplifier and CD35 Prisma CD player – are the first outing for the Swedish manufacturer’s whole-home, high-fidelity control and connectivity platform. According to marketing director Terry Medalen, Prisma “provides a complete spectrum of system management from a single point of control”. The platform not only allows network playback from both stored and streamed media, wi-fi and Bluetooth connection, but also multi-zone control – all managed from any mobile device through a dedicated system control app.
Rated at 2x 150W (8ohm), the I35 Prisma is the first integrated to use a reworking of Primare’s Class D amplification tech, and includes a DAC stage with support for up to PCM 768kHz and DSD256 formats. The CD35 Prisma is fitted with a TEAC CD drive and an ESS Sabre chipset, handling music files up to PCM 384kHz and DSD256. Both are available in black and titanium finishes and cost £4,000 and £2,900 respectively. Distributed in the UK by Karma-AV, you can find out more here.
