Primare PRE32 pre amplifier is designed to match with the Primare A34.2, Primare A32 or any other fine power amplifier. It features the comprehensive OLED display and control parameters established by the EISA award-winning I32 integrated amplifier.
This model was available with the optional MM30 media board for high end music streaming but this has been discontinued - we recommend using this model with the Primare NP30 streamer.
The PRE32 is housed in a heavy gauge alloy steel chassis, and incorporates two pairs (L/R) of low-noise balanced XLR inputs and 4 pairs of RCA inputs. Additionally, there are two pairs of RCA outputs and a single pair of balanced XLR outputs, as well as a record output, RS232, trigger, IR and RF inputs.
Just like with the integrated Primare I32 or Primare's other amplifiers, this pre amplifier is designer first and foremost for sound quality. However, unlike the integrated models, combining the PRE30 with the A34.2 or flagship A32 is a stunning system that offers true high end performance and easily improves over anything else we've heard at this level.
"Allowing microscopic analysis of the recording engineers art, Primare's I32 is a fine example of a modern industrial design that looks a million dollars. And its variable-brightness OEL display is simply gorgeous, as is the ability to name and configure the inputs." (Hi-FI News Yearbook 2011)
"Sounding crisp and squeaky clean, the I32 delivered startling clarity that was captivating." (Hi-FI News Yearbook 2011)
"...sounded tight and grippy along with a highly explicit treble... And the bass was impressive: extended, powerful and highly descriptive. The Primare digs deeply into the minutae of recordings..." (Hi-FI News Yearbook 2011)
