SPA25 Prisma Home Cinema Integrated Amplifier

The SPA25 Prisma is a multi-channel integrated amplifier and processor designed for both cinephile and audiophile, composed of carefully considered and crafted features and functionality to provide the best home cinema experience for the greatest number of people.

For the cinephile, the SPA25 Prisma includes a nine-channels of amplification, with a maximum total output power of 900 watts, 4K dynamic HDR switching, eARC, Dirac Live and eleven-channel Atmos/DTS X processing that, with the addition of a stereo amplifier, allows for 7.1.4 cinema configurations

For the audiophile, the SPA25 Prisma utilizes dual eight channel DAC chips allowing for a unique digital to analog conversion circuit that allocates four channels of conversion to the front left and right channel output for improved stereo performance. That combined with the adaptive power supply providing power delivery of 145 watts into 8-ohms and 250 watts into 4-ohm speaker loads in stereo mode, as well as the ability to bi-amp the main left and right channels supplying 290 watts into 8 ohms and 405 watts into 4 ohms per channel, make the SPA25 Prisma the most powerful “stereo” integrated amp Primare has ever produced.

Primare’s proven Prisma network player platform provides complete streaming features and functionality, as well as multi-room / multi-zone options, with AirPlay2, Bluetooth, Chromecast, Roon*, and Spotify Connect (HiFi ready). With the associated Prisma application, combined with the onscreen setup menu, offering easy system customisation from the listening position. Additionally, Prisma provides comprehensive control of network connected hard drives, as well as embedded Prisma Radio, Tidal HiFi*, and Qobuz* services for simplified access to these most used music sources.

*By future update, noting that Roon with AirPlay and Chromecast as endpoint is available now with Roon Ready by future update.

For both cinephile and audiophile, Dirac Live® Room Correction utilises state-of-the-art, patented algorithms to analyse and digitally reduce the impact of the room, enhancing the performance of any audio system. Dirac optimises the sound not only with respect to frequency, but also to phase, providing not only linear frequency response but precise arrival time for both two and multi-channel listening with previously unheard detail and clarity.

Individualised control and connectivity is afforded by seventeen customisable input pre-sets for virtually any combination of digital and analog, video and audio input configurations, combined with five customisable speaker setup pre-sets for a variety of speaker and DSP configurations to suit any viewing and listening requirements. 

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 the idea of being inconspicuous, of not drawing undue attention, which is inherent in the compact physical design of the SPA25 Prisma and elimination of unnecessary display and front panel controls.

    SPA25 Prisma: Primare SPA25 Prisma AV Amplifier

    “Primare has developed the SPA25 Prisma home cinema amplifier especially for demanding music lovers who want to listen to music in its purest form, but also want to experience an optimal movie experience. With this beautiful Primare you make no concessions in the search for perfect image and sound…

    The sound quality of this SPA25 Prisma can not only compete with many high-quality integrated amplifiers, many preamp/amp combinations will also have difficulty matching the sound quality of the Primare. Let alone surpass it…

    Conclusion – Primare recommends this SPA25 as the ultimate solution for audio and cinephiles. After our review period, we believe that the Malmö-based high-end audio manufacturer is one hundred percent right. If you do not value specifications on paper but prefer an easy-to-use AV component with an uncompromising construction and perfect image and sound quality, then this high-end AV amplifier from Primare will last you many years. Five-star award.”

    SPA25 Prisma: Tight Step in Scandinavian Style

    “Just right for us – In conclusion, we can summarise that Primare continues to be Primare, by deliberately thinking for themselves and going their very own ways in our hysterically varied consumer society. Their new integrated home cinema amplifier SPA25 is a result of clear priorities, the sound quality and joy of long-term ownership for the music and film enthusiast had to go before graphic finesse and chameleon-like versatility that is exhibited and offered by several competitors at present.

    The ascetic fluidity of Primare’s single-mindedness and elegant design also make high demands on you as a user. If you feel you are right for this purification bath, and that you otherwise also fit the proposed “user profile”, you will be richly rewarded, for SPA25 sounds very good, unusually good, even. And in the long run this is the most important feature for a multi-channel integrated amplifier, which by virtue of its quality and tightly restrained elegance adorns its place on the top shelf in your austere Scandinavian dream home better than any other.”

    SPA25 Prisma: EISA Best Product AV Receiver 2023-2024

    “Marking a welcome return to the AV receiver arena, Primare has created a multichannel, immersive audio powerhouse that captivates with both movie and music playback. A nine-channel design based around energy-efficient Hypex Class D amplification, and supporting front speaker bi-amping, the SPA25’s sound mixes delicate smoothness with transient attack, bass weight and seamless soundstaging – all ready to be fine-tuned by Dirac Live software. Other features, including the company’s well-regarded, hi-res Prisma streaming platform, and a high-quality USB DAC input, will satisfy two-channel audiophiles. Finally, the elegant style and premium build quality of the SPA25 ensures it looks as good as it sounds.”

    SPA25 Prisma – Equally Strong in Music as Surround

    “It is striking that Primare never loses sight of stereo enthusiasts with its multi-channel products. The A35.8, for example, is as good an 8-channel power amp as it is a very powerful stereo amplifier (via bridging and bi-wiring). Same with the SPA25. It is an AV receiver, but the Swedes state that it can also be set up as a powerful integrated stereo amplifier. If you choose stereo and can bi-amp speakers, 290 watts per channel are available.

    The SPA25 is not your average AV receiver where a long list of features seems more important than the actual performance. Not that it’s missing business. Thanks to Dirac, the Primare has an excellent manner to tailor the playback to your speakers and room. There is also a lot of flexibility in how you can configure the device, without making the interface very complex.”

    SPA25 Prisma – Slick and smart Swedish receiver

    This receiver marks the triumphant return of a somewhat ’boutique’ brand to the world of multichannel AV. There are more affordable competitors that carry more channels and more advanced HDMI connectivity, but I’m hardpressed to think of one that sounds so comprehensively accomplished. Primare’s SPA25 looks premium, sounds superb, and is worth every penny of its price.” HCC Verdict – Best Buy / Five Star
