I35 Prisma: Primare I35 Prisma – Fairaudio’s Favorite AWARD 2019
Primare I35 Prisma – fairaudio’s favorite award 2019, integrated amplifier with DAC and streamer – awarded by the fairaudio editorship due to excellent sound characteristics. Exceptional clarity, a fine feel for nuance and rhythmic flair throws the Swedish integrated amplifier into balance – which also includes, in the tested version, a network player and DAC module for great connectivity. And on top of that is the chic Scandinavian design.

I35 DAC: Seemingly similar, but very different
Every type of music sounds perfect. It is great in respect to dynamics, speed, timing, resolution and providing a sense of surround sound. Dryness and “Scandinavian” coolness of tones? Nothing of the kind. This device is neutral with no evident tendencies to embellish the sound. It is also the kind of device you can listen to constantly with no signs of fatigue… Can I say anything else? Just that we will buy one for ourselves.

I35 Prisma + CD35 Prisma: Versatility at its best
Primare is among the most consistent class-leading high-end brands of the last few decades, continuing to refine a balanced and coherent sound. These new I35 and CD35 Prisma models are still following this more evolutionary course. However, a true revolution, and certainly for this brand, is now suddenly the maximum seamless integration of almost all digital source standards currently available. Add to this the maximum sound quality, and the trouble-free and smooth operation of the app for each of these sources, and the Primare team has seen the light again!

I35: Capturing the music’s heart and soul
However, it’s the ability to reveal the heart and soul of the music that is the Primare’s most endearing trait. It certainly proves that Class D has come of age, and that efficiency and pace can be delivered without sacrificing the emotive core of the music.

I35 Prisma: Five Stars – Editor’s Choice
The sound of the I35 has something noble, special, some kind of rare consistency and analog smoothness. It’s a fantastic amp, a very good DAC and more than a decent streamer. Hot recommendation!

I35 DAC: Primare – Traditionally Strong In Integrated Amps, Comes Up With An Even Stronger Integrated Amp!
The sound had no impurity at all… Whatever music was chosen, there was no excess or shortage in the sound of I35 DAC, and its fresh performance was impressive. It would be hard to find another amp that equals this performance at the price level of the I35 DAC. This amp is recommendable even to those audiophiles who have groundlessly negative worries about Class-D amps. In the market, there are many amps that are different inside from outside. But, through I35 DAC, I was able to confirm the reputation of Primare again.

I35: Primare I35 integrated amplifier
This is an amplifier that has the Devil’s Amplifier Class running cool and clear and it is extraordinarily modern in design inside and out. And yet, if you listen with your ears instead of your eyes and your prejudices, you’ll discover that this is an absolute blinder of an amplifier – possibly one of the best there is!
HiFi Stars, Germany, September 2018
I35 Prisma: Really everything in it!
It’s all incredibly fast and natural in its performance, lively in the best sense of the word! The quality of music playback over the network connection plays in the same league as the analog and digital inputs of the I35 Prisma. The Swedish amplifier is once again characterised by its enthusiasm, dynamism and balance.

I35 Prisma: Nordic Charisma
It draws a crystal-clear sound through the entire spectrum, the timpani are voluminous and can resonate very freely, the strings are brilliant even in the highest registers, without sounding exaggerated.
The amplifier succeeds in an excellent spatial separation and it is able to deliver dynamic peaks very energetically.

I35 Prisma: Primare I35 Prisma
The top model of integrated amplifier manufactured by Primare is offered at a significantly higher price compared to that of the small I15 Prisma, winner of the EISA award, but offers a much higher power and even higher technical and sound performance. The high build quality and the sober and elegant design further increases the appeal of the amplifier.

I35 Prisma: Primare I35
The 30 series amplifiers have a well-deserved reputation for fantastic sound, stellar build quality, and understated visual design. The new UPFD 2 power amplifier features 150 watts per channel, and like the model before it, defies pre-conceived notions of what you might think Class-D sounds like. It’s actually quite good. For the music lover wanting high performance, a modest form factor and stunning good looks, look no further.
