An optional DAC board is available for the I22, comprising three digital inputs for the upgrading of existing CD players via their digital outputs, and the streaming of music files from PCs and Macs. There is an isochronous USB-B, TOSLINK and RCA SPDIF inputs. Specialised processing at the Isochronous USB-B input re-clocks the incoming data for reduced jitter and greater bit resolution through the DAC, optimising sound quality from music files.

"Yes, the 22s have a little less power, and the stripped-down equipment could be mentioned, too, but what remains are the open, honest tone and the unbridled enthusiasm of the Primare combo. For me, the CD22 and I22 are a true HiFi highlight not only because of the very fair price!"View/download full review as PDF

Primare’s engineers truly have an exceptional mastery of digital and analogue circuit configuration. They prove it not only with the CD22 player’s quite exceptional analytical capability and well structured rendering of timbres, but also with the I22, defying all the prejudices regarding switch-mode power supplies and switching power levels.

to their very interesting UFPD architecture (creating unconditional stability of operation regardless of the type of speakers) and the selection of sampling frequency from the CD22, the reproduction allows listening in complete serenity, without aggression, from these two perfectly matched electronics.

“..visually, these units just ooze class…the chassis are based on thick steel sheet – you could probably stand on these without leaving a mark…we’ve seldom heard energy and detail so well balanced in an affordable system...We were particularly aware of this neat balancing trick when listening to a recently bought CD of the Canadian piano virtuoso Marc-Andre Hamelin, playing some of his own compositions. He plays so many notes per second that it’s quite a tall order for a hi-fi system to reproduce them all clearly and we’ve heard one or two manage that, but lose the overall shape of the music. In this case however, we were able to hear with great precision, not only which notes were going down, but where the general progression was leading and what the piano itself sounded like.”View/download full review as PDF
