    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!

    I25: Primarily Versatile

    Even though Primare’s I25 Integrated amplifier’s cleanliness, deep-bass strength, and control can be considered to be prime virtues, it is first and foremost an all-rounder without any real weaknesses or anything that draws attention… The Swede, at all times, with its effortless homogenous musicality, unconditional control and balanced, slightly sonorous tonality, avoids sounding hard or flat. This makes the I25 suitable as an inspiring sounding companion for the long term - even in combination with more demanding loudspeakers.

    I25: I25 Test

    It turns out that the Primare I25 is a very versatile device that will fit most systems, will show off most discs in a nice way. Playing with a large, full sound in which the midrange is most important, but not because the frequency extremes are limited - absolutely not, as I would even say that the bass is slightly pronounced and the treble has a lot of energy - but we have such an impression because everything is sweet and pleasant.

    I25: Primare I25

    The sound is clear, it is solid and dynamic, it has a bit of an analytical tendency and, above all, it does not impose any particular character on the whole. But it is not a tense technical performance, it remains impartial and close to the theoretical audiophile ideal. A big bonus is the possibility to expand its capabilities with a solid D/A converter module and/or the Prisma module, which will provide the comfort of the world of streaming and modern control. Overall, the Primare I25 is a frequency-balanced and tonal-neutral amplifier, well processed and very orderly - at least on paper, it is very close to the theoretical hi-fi ideal.
