In addition to comprehensive input and output options, featuring both XLR and RCA connection, the PRE35 Prisma includes includes both the sophisticated digital to analog converter module, DM35, as well as a Prisma network player module, SM35, to create an extraoridinarily versatile system control centre.

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.”View full review
