PRIMARE HOME THEATRE Transform the quality of your Home Theatre » Primare design will deliver all the scale and impact of high-end home entertainment » PERFORMANCE TO BELIEVE IN Primare home theatre balances breathtaking audio and video resolution with beautifully understated design sophistication. From the awesome award-winning BD32 MkII universal player, the new SPA23 AV amplifier and SP33 processor, and the A30.7 or A34.2 power amplifiers you’ll experience a wonderful consistency of high build quality and performance in a style that’s easy to appreciate and use. Over decades we’ve dedicated our engineering to the purity of signal transfer and product operation, giving film and music fans access to fidelity without complication. By combining ultra-low noise circuit topology with potent reserves of clean power, Primare design will deliver all the scale and impact of high-end home entertainment, complete with the utility of intuitive control and the satisfaction that comes from owning a product that looks and feels beautiful in the home. These are the virtues that make Primare unique. For those who value performance over gadgetry, convenience over complexity, understated elegance over flashy display, Primare separates can inspire satisfaction on every level, not just from the astonishing natural accuracy of their pictures and sound, but also from the rare and enduring luxury of their design. A30.7 SEVEN CHANNEL POWER AMPLIFIER Projecting an elegant efficiency that is the hallmark of Primare design, the Primare A30.7 is a seven-channel power amplifier housing seven discrete 150W Ultra-Fast Power Device (UFPD) amplifiers in a gorgeous heavy gauge alloy steel chassis. It is designed to provide high power output with very low distortion for the SP33 audiophile preamp/ processor and all other multi-channel audio processors. LIFE WITH THE A30.7 Matching the SP33’s outputs, each channel of the A30.7 incorporates unbalanced (RCA) and balanced (XLR) inputs, as well as high quality gold-plated speaker terminals, trigger and RS232 control inputs. UFPD’s instantaneous rise time and wideband response result in a naturally fast, clean and agile sound over a much wider frequency range. This means that through the A30.7, super-clean signals from the SP33 are turned into dynamic three-dimensional audio, rich with natural detail, texture and atmosphere. What’s more, the A30.7’s efficient UFPD design converts more power into sound and less into heat, making it economical to run and ecologically in tune. Audiophile UFPD amplification UFPD (Ultra Fast Power Device) amplifiers represent a new type of purified Class D/switch-mode design, which delivers a natural dynamic quality of sound across the entire audible spectrum with an amazing energy-saving efficiency. Before UFPD, Class D modules worked well as compact bass amplifiers but proved to be inherently unstable when called on to reproduce accurately the full frequency range of a female voice for instance or the natural resonance of percussion instruments. All this has changed with Primare’s innovative UFPD design. It is consistent in resolution across the entire audio band, treating all frequencies with the same level of care, regardless of load. This means that UFPD is able to drive any speaker, creating a natural, rhythmic sound while keeping power consumption at a fraction of that used by a traditional amplifier. SP33 AUDIOPHILE AV PROCESSOR Featuring no fewer than five HDMI inputs and two HDMI outputs, together with a wide range of analogue and digital audio connections, the SP33 gives you the power of fingertip control over all your home entertainment sources, including disc players, DACs, TV boxes and gaming consoles. And with versatility and convenience comes the superb audiophile performance of a Primare 30 series design. LIFE WITH THE SP33 With a comprehensive array of digital and analogue connections: low-noise balanced audio inputs and outputs, HDMI inputs and outputs, a Zone 2 output for performance in a second room, and IR and RS232 connections for the highest possible automation flexibility, the SP33 will integrate easily with any high quality installation. It gives you the opportunity for powerful custom configuration in your home environment, allowing you to personalise operation and to optimise the performance of your system. Almost every parameter can be user defined using new onscreen menus and the C24 remote supplied. Assign a name to any input and associate it with any audio and video source. Surround format, trigger activation and input sensitivity may be specified for each input, and surround formats - including Dolby TrueHD or DTS-HD Master Audio - custom-set for level, speaker type, crossover frequency, delay and bass configuration. In addition, a 250mS global delay system with dedicated DSP is incorporated in order to achieve the best possible picture-to-sound synchronisation. The SP33’s new video board will allow the upscaling of all video sources to FullHD 1080p/24 with 3D video pass-through, as well as ‘per input’ calibration of the two HDMI outputs for perfect performance from a choice of two displays. In the SP33 you’ll own a finely-engineered, easy-to-use audio and video design, complete with excellent system expansion flexibility and the promise of astonishing sound and picture resolution for years to come. Match the SP33 with the Primare A30.7 UFPD power amplifier and BD32 MkII universal player for the ultimate statement of home entertainment luxury from Primare. BD32 MkII UNIVERSAL PLAYER Delivering the highest quality music and film replay from the widest range of sources, the BD32 MkII media player adds 4K up-scaling, Netflix support and improved circuit design to the awardwinning BD32. The MkII has truly universal playback capabilities. It’s the only player you’ll ever need and the perfect complement to our stereo and home theatre products. LIFE WITH THE BD32 MkII Equipped with audiophile reserves of clean power distributed across multiple supplies, the MkII will render spectacular detail and luminous colour from native 4K sources, and transform Blu-ray and DVD at four times the resolution of FullHD 1080p.
