New Primare networked Prisma I35 amplifier and CD35 player now on demonstration


The Swedish specialist has started shipping its first Prisma models.

Both the I35 Prisma integrated amplifier/network player and CD35 Prisma CD/network player are based around Primare’s new Prisma wireless multi-room network module that offers playback from stored and streamed music over wi-fi, as well as Bluetooth connectivity.

The I35 Prisma integrated amplifier is the first product to make use of the second generation of Primare’s UFPD Class-D power system, which Primare claims is a ‘radical reworking’ of the original, and delivers 150 watts per channel (into 8 ohms).

In addition to balanced and unbalanced analogue inputs, the 135 Prisma has seven digital inputs – four optical, two coaxial and an asynchronous USB – as well as a coaxial output. It features a DAC that’s capable of 768kHz playback and DSD 256 conversion.

The CD35 Prisma CD player couples a TEAC CD drive with a 384kHz/DSD 256 DAC fed by optical and coaxial inputs – there’s a balanced analogue output stage too!

Both players are available now in black or titanium finishes, and can be purchased with or without the Prisma module.

The I35 is priced £4000 with, or £3700 without – and there’s also the option to buy the amplified network player without Prisma or the DAC for £3200.

The CD35, meanwhile, costs £2900 with Prisma and £2550 without.

Thanks to the players’ modular nature, those that forego the features can add them at a later date.
