Primare’s industrial design speaks volumes in this sleek, slim amplifier. Despite its compact size compared to conventional designs, it punches well above its weight in sound and features. Along with the conventional analog inputs, there is a DAC of the highest quality and connectivity, its Prisma control platform includes Bluetooth, AirPlay, Spotify Connect and Chromecast functionality. It sounds surprisingly good for its size: super smooth and creamy with plenty of detail and satisfying stage depth. The Class D power amplifier is meaty enough to drive most speakers, while the fascia’s crisp OLED display keeps track of source and volume settings. The chassis design is spectacular, it makes a lot of sense for those looking for something out of the ordinary.
