- Data sheet
In the home of the noble Hi-Fi manufacturer, Primare slowly ticking clocks. Five years the Sweden settled time, to make the CD 32 (2450 EUR) on the legs. His nationality is it written in the face. With his massive, eight millimeter thick front plate and the robust chassis is processed as solid as bodies of Volvo or Saab. But the newcomer is styled more noble than his predecessor.
And he offers more technical refinements. Button oversampelt he the sampling rate of the CD at 48 or 96 kHz. A trigger output turns it with accordingly equipped amplifier and off.
Burning Primare already nothing left in the parts Assembly: A toroidal transformer delivers power in abundance, large buffered and cooled voltage stabilisers guarantee energy independence from the power supply.
The output stages, first and foremost two manufacturer Texas Instruments affectionately as “sound plus” – for highest audio playback – certified D/A converters, are strictly channel separately. The still puny Converter output signals peppelt Primare not with highly integrated semiconductor ICs from the rod on. The final filtering and amplification takes place in boards, which protects the copper casing to parasitic interference with individual transistors are built.
The primary 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: The pair of Primare shows that lavish facilities, ample power and fine sound not must mutually. In addition, the streaming update is a real argument for the feinnervig and elegant musical team from Sweden.
