Product Description

Primare aptX Bluetooth Upgrade Module adapts the EISA award-winning I32 integrated amplifier and the PRE32 stereo preamplifier for audiophile streaming and internet radio.

Wireless Streaming

Along with audiophile streaming capability, it adds gapless audio playback, through integration with UPnP devices such as PC/Mac/NAS iPod, iPad, iPhone or USB thumb drive. It’s a genuine 24/192 DAC board including coax, TOSLINK, USB-A and USB-B inputs (incorporating an asynchronous master clock for low jitter), and a high-resolution coaxial output. The MM30 also includes a high-quality aptX Bluetooth receiver.

Pure Analogue Signals

DAC upgrades from certain brands are known to interfere with the analogue output causing a noticeable deterioration in sound quality. Consistent with Primare design philosophy, the digital and analogue signal paths within the Primare media upgrade have their own dedicated ground planes; a design feature which protects the purity of the analogue signals.

Audiophile Topology

For compatibility with Primare’s high-performance audio design, the receiver-only module supports high quality Bluetooth via aptX, AAC, MP3 but rather than use an integrated DAC (as employed by other BT upgrades) the output is fed to the product’s own Sample Rate Converter and up-sampled to 192kHz for optimum performance through the existing high resolution DACs.

In this way Primare’s Bluetooth Upgrade is among the most audiophile available, adding excellent Bluetooth sound quality to the convenience of wireless Bluetooth connections. Following an easy software update via the PrimareApp, the BT input is added to the product control menu in a discrete BT section, which allows for the renaming of the input for the product display and the also the BT connection. Other controls are ‘Visible’, ‘Unpair’ and ‘Autoconnect’.

Compatibility

The I32 and PRE32 can be purchased with or without media upgrade. Primare Control Apps are available for iPhone/iPad and Android.
