A state-of-the-art dedicated CD drive supplies a jitter-free digital signal to an all-new DAC stage utilising a superb-sounding eight channel ESS Sabre chipset to convert that signal to analog for delivery to a finely tuned output stage.
Each component part of CD35 Prisma – the drive, the DAC, and the output stage – work together in balance and harmony, contributing to what is the best CD player Primare has ever offered.
CD35 Prisma features Prisma, Primare’s new whole-home, high-fidelity control and connectivity solution. Prisma provides multi-room/multi-zone connectivity and control for playback of stored and streamed media, wired or wireless, all managed from any mobile device through a dedicated system control app. In addition to Bluetooth®, AirPlay, and Spotify Connect, Prisma features Chromecast built-in, a unique streaming portal allowing effortless direct connection to hundreds of streaming applications.
For those who wish to have a player dedicated solely to CD playback, CD35 is available, without Prisma control and connectivity technology, but with the same extraordinary drive, DAC and output stage as the CD35 Prisma. Prisma technology can be added as a plug-in module at a later date.

CD35: The most beautiful of all CD players
It's true, the Primary CD35 surprised us. Such a beautiful CD player, one does not trust too much. But here we had to learn a lesson: the pretty sounds also beguilingly good... always playful, informative, but never hard. Only a few CD players can do that - and if so, they are much higher in terms of pricing.View full review

I35 Prisma + CD35 Prisma: Versatility at its best
Primare is among the most consistent class-leading high-end brands of the last few decades, continuing to refine a balanced and coherent sound. These new I35 and CD35 Prisma models are still following this more evolutionary course. However, a true revolution, and certainly for this brand, is now suddenly the maximum seamless integration of almost all digital source standards currently available. Add to this the maximum sound quality, and the trouble-free and smooth operation of the app for each of these sources, and the Primare team has seen the light again!View/download full review as PDF
