The evolution of Primare’s technology since 2022, notably marked by the success of the “I35 Prisma” amplifier, is evident in these latest offerings.

Streaming capabilities abound, with compatibility with popular services like Qobuz, Tidal, and Deezer, along with support for AirPlay 2, Chromecast, Spotify Connect, and Bluetooth connections, making it a true audio powerhouse.

Furthermore, it’s Roon ready, ensuring seamless integration into any setup. The “SP25 Prisma,” sharing similar technological prowess, functions exclusively as a preamplifier.
