The CD player when it comes to electronics to be already desired, the integrated amplifier I puts on it yet another 32 (2450 EUR). Not with his measured data, anticipating the power output 2 x 184 Watts at a power consumption of only 25 Watts (no signal). The reason for this low power consumption at idle can be found under the housing lid: Heatsink Thick – bodied flanking only a switching power supply, measly plate lamb Ellen keep the “power transistors’ lower operating temperature.

And before the speaker terminals and make wide filter coils. “Aha’, ponders the technician, “Primare entrusts the lion’s share of the gain digital amplifiers in class-D technology.”

The principle is quite simple: the output stage is either on or off. When “On” she snorts the music particles to the pits piecemeal and at lightning speed. The coils act as memory and bypass the breaks. Advantage of digital amplifier: little performance of loss of. The powerhouse was little impressed by low-impedance loads or hideous phase turns of exotic speaker.

In the hearing test, 32 I gave a confident debut. Most complex orchestral passages remained well-balanced until the last corner. The amp enthusiasts with a reproduction, which is refined to harmonious sounds and went under the skin. He offered the right amount of dynamic and precision to give impetus to rhythmic performances. Delicate criticism was possibly the bass range. At bottomless bass tirades 32 holding back I distinguished, as the comparison with the stereoplay highlight showed Creek destiny 2 amplifier (11/10).

Also the CD 32 was with delicate overtones and natural sound colors rather than striker, but joined in the College of fine spirits. So the Primares as a pair with flattering floral sounds spoiled.

Opinion: Who wants to let it rip correctly, is with the Primare Combi wrong. Sound is the crack for fine nuances and harmonious color scheme. The components complement each other very well: the amp provides power in abundance, the player gives posh templates.
