    I35 DAC: Seemingly similar, but very different

    Every type of music sounds perfect. It is great in respect to dynamics, speed, timing, resolution and providing a sense of surround sound. Dryness and “Scandinavian” coolness of tones? Nothing of the kind. This device is neutral with no evident tendencies to embellish the sound. It is also the kind of device you can listen to constantly with no signs of fatigue... Can I say anything else? Just that we will buy one for ourselves.

    I35: Integrated amplifier with class D power plant

    The Primare i35 is a special, positive piece of work... In the LowBeats listening room, this sounded wonderfully smooth, silky in the highs and with impressive force in the lowest bass.

    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!

    Primare I35: Capturing the music’s heart and soul

    However, it’s the ability to reveal the heart and soul of the music that is the Primare’s most endearing trait. It certainly proves that Class D has come of age, and that efficiency and pace can be delivered without sacrificing the emotive core of the music.
