NEW PRODUCTS
SPRING 2017
For over thirty years, Primare has been designing and producing award-winning
hi-fi components that exemplify honest integrity and timeless design. Every Primare
product reflects a commitment to Scandinavian ideals such as lagom – the sense of
true satisfaction that comes from balance and harmony. Not too much. Not too little.
Just right.
With a modular, environmentally conscious approach that complements core
values of lasting quality, ease of use, and deeply satisfying performance, Primare
effortlessly delivers today’s ever-expanding music and visual experiences in all their
richness and variety, whether the source is analog or digital, wired or wireless,
stored or streamed.
This spring 2017, we are pleased to announce three exciting new Prisma products,
for delivery late summer and early fall – the first of many more to come: I35 Prisma
integrated amplifier, with new UFPD 2 amplification technology; CD35 Prisma CD
player; and I15 Prisma integrated amplifier – all incorporating Primare’s new
connectivity and control technology, Prisma.
Primare – the sound and vision of Scandinavia
As a prism provides a complete spectrum of colors from a single point of light, Prisma
provides a complete spectrum of system management from a single point of control.
Prisma features include network playback from stored and streamed media, Wi-Fi
and Bluetooth® connection, as well as multi-room/multi-zone connectivity and control,
all managed through the Prisma application, allowing Prisma system management
from any mobile device.

The I15 Prisma integrated amplifier is a compact, full-featured system control and
power center, providing 75 watts per channel, digital to analog conversion with PCM
768kHz and DSD 256 capabilities, as well as complete digital media access and
system management by way of the Prisma connectivity and control technology.
The I15 Prisma continues a Primare tradition of delivering astonishing performance
from compact and elegant devices for easy installation into virtually any living
environment. With the three-quarter-sized cabinet of the I15 Prisma, even greater
possibilities open up for providing the highest quality music performance and access
to any and every room in the house.

UPFD 2 incorporates all that we have learned designing and producing Class D
amplifiers for over ten years. UFPD 2 is based on the new UFPD 2 Power Supply,
which possesses significantly greater efficiency than from past designs, with lower
ripple, to produce more and better power with less noise. This supply allows the
UFPD 2 Power Module to effortlessly provide absolutely linear gain across the entire
bandwidth with greater stability into even the most difficult speaker loads.
