Technology

PRE35 DAC modular preamplifier is an exceptional system control center, providing umprecedented low noise and distortion free selection and transmission of any analog input, as a result of the carefully crafted fully balanced circuit design benefitting from the use of a four layer main board to achieve the shortest possible signal path.

In addition to comprehensive input and output options, featuring both XLR and RCA connection, the PRE35 DAC includes the DM35 full-featured DAC stage enabling up to PCM 768kHz/32bit and DSD 256 conversion, and due to its modular design also allows for the Prisma network player module, SM35, to be added to the amplifier at any time for unprecedented system customization.

With the DM35 module installed, PRE35 Prisma includes WiSA high resolution wireless speaker connectivity with WiSA enabled high performance powered loudspeakers, and is a feature unique to this high-performance preamplifier.

The look and feel of Scandinavia

We believe that every aspect of our products – the way they look, the satisfying feel of the controls – contributes to the overall experience of living with Primare. As a result, Primare products exude the hallmarks of Scandinavian design – simple, elegant designs, with approachable and easy to understand functionality.
An example of this is our signature control knob, known throughout the industry for both its appearance as well as how it feels in the hand as an input is selected or volume adjusted. – or as we say lagom, not too much not too little, everything in balance, proportion, and harmony.

Modular Design and System Building

We feel it is essential to offer modularity whenever possible in order to have just the right features, both now and for the future. Modular design is featured in the I25 and I35 modular integrated amplifiers, as well as the PRE35 modular preamplifier, all of which can be updated with DAC and Prisma modules, as well as the CD35 CD player that can have the Prisma module added, either at the time of purchase or at a later date. As a result, we are able to offer a carefully considered array of models and configurations in order to allow for device selection that best fits any system need. For example, a CD35 with Prisma module installed can be paired with an I35 integrated amplifier, allowing for a separation of analog and digital stages. Or, an I35 with DAC and Prisma modules installed can be paired with a DD35 CD transport, allowing for multi-room and multi-zone playback of every input, whether analog or digital source.

    PRE35 Prisma: Primare PRE35 with WiSA and System Audio Legend Audio 40 Silverback

    “From the perspective of the discerning music lover, the interesting thing is that this wireless music system makes very few compromises in audio quality. The WiSA system is lossless and hi-res (to a certain extent), and together with a source/hub like the PRE35 you talk about a high-end audio chain that remains completely in the hi-fi atmosphere. Thanks to Primare’s excellent Prisma platform, you are in the right place in terms of streaming options. 4.5 stars out of 5.”

    PRE35 Prisma + A35.2: Volcano in Two Stages (English)

    “This pre/power tandem conjures up lust and passion, no matter how classically-refined its appearance may be. We were thrilled… We would like to go easy on our proofs of love. But we have really fallen for these two Swedes. As a mix of control centre and powerhouse we don’t know a better tandem in this price category.”
