Overview

CD35 Prisma

CD35 Prisma is a complete digital music media source, providing CD disc, stored and streamed music file playback, along with wired and wireless connectivity and control capabilities.

Features

Technology

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. 

Prisma

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.

Optional Configuration

CD35

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 PrismaPrisma technology can be added as a plug-in module at a later date.

DD35

For those who need a dedicated CD transport to connect to a DAC, like that found in our I35 DAC or I35 Prisma, DD35 is available; without Prisma control and connectivity technology and DAC, but with the same extraordinary drive as the CD35 and CD35 Prisma.

    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.

    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!

    CD35: CD with potential

    So, success? Of course. It is enough that CD35 offers a potentially attractive and interesting expansion option for the Prisma network player module, which will turn this disc player into a true multi-format source, in addition to being a class-leading player. A CD about free, open, natural and - most importantly - engaging sound. Feeling the sound of progress, without a doubt. Recommmended

    I25 Prisma + DD35: On the must hear list

    The I25 Prisma is a dike of an amplifier that plays music easily and naturally. From the first note you have the impression that the view is just right. No emphasis on a particular aspect, simply a complete picture. The DD35 CD transport will make every true CD enthusiast happy. Beautifully built and equally good sounding. Anyone who is looking for a new amplifier or CD player would be doing themselves a serious injustice if both Primare devices are not put on their must hear list!
