Connecting the SP33
This page shows how to connect your SP33 to other equipment in your system.
Power
Audio inputs
Video connections
Record outputs
Connect the power connector on the back
panel to your power outlet using the mains cable
supplied with the SP33.
The SP33 provides a total of ten analog inputs
and seven digital inputs. Because the SP33 is
configurable, you have total flexibility about which
input you use for each of your sources. In addition,
you can optionally use four pairs of analog inputs
for a single, multi-channel source, such as SACD.
The SP33 provides a choice of five HDMI inputs
and two HDMI outputs.
The SP33 Multi-Channel Processor allows you to
make a recording of a digital source to the two
digital record outputs, or of an analog source to
the analog record output.
If this cable is not suitable for your power outlets
contact your supplier for an alternative cable.

WARNING: Always disconnect the
SP33 from the mains power before
connecting or disconnecting any
cables, including the HDMI cables.
Main outputs
The SP33 provides eight discrete analog audio
outputs for connecting to the power amplifiers
and loudspeakers in the surround system. Each
output is provided in both an unbalanced and a
balanced version.
The SP33 is supplied with a suggested set of
sources already set up, and you may choose to
leave the inputs assigned in this way. However, if
you prefer, you can re-assign the inputs to sources
in any way you prefer.
Digital inputs
The SP33 provides a total of seven digital inputs:
one AES/EBU digital input, three SPDIF digital
inputs, and three optical TOSlink digital inputs.
Analog inputs
The SP33 provides eight line-level stereo RCA
inputs and two XLR inputs for connection to a
source providing balanced outputs.
You can adjust the settings for each output for
optimum performance with the display device,
for example a TV and a projector. The on-screen
display is provided on both outputs.
Connecting to a television or monitor
The SP33 provides two digital record outputs,
SPDIF and optical TOSlink, and one analog RCA
record output.
Connect the appropriate output to your television
or display.
IR , RS2 3 2 , a n d
Triggers
If your television includes an HDMI tuner output
you can use the SP33 to perform switching
between the television tuner and your other
video sources such as DVD or Blu-Ray. In this
case connect the television tuner output to the
HDMI input corresponding to your TV source. If
your television does not provide a tuner output
you will need to switch the television between its
internal tuner and the external video input.
The IR input allows you to connect an external
infra-red eye, for operation of the SP33 if the
front panel is inaccessible.
Zone 2
An additional audio output is provided to feed a
second zone, such as a second room system.
The RS232 input allows an authorized dealer to
connect the SP33 to a computer, for service and
future upgrades, or to controller systems. For
more information and details of control codes
contact Primare or see the Primare Audio Web
site at www.primare.net.
The Trigger outputs allow the SP33 to control
external equipment, such as power amplifiers, or a
projector screen.

To mute the sound
•
Press the O button on the front panel or the
MUTE button on the remote control.
To restore the sound to its original volume
•
•
Press the O or MUTE button again.
Use the VOLUME control on the front
panel, or the A and V buttons on the remote
control, to adjust the value.
Each setting can be changed from -10.0dB to
+10.0dB.
The sound is also restored to its original volume if
you increase the volume.
After a short delay the display will revert to the
normal display.
Changing the
levels
Changing the
lipsync
You can independently change the balance, center
level, surround level, surround back level, and
subwoofer level to alter the balance of sound in
your surround system.
You can change the AV Delay (lipsync) from the
front panel to compensate for processing delay in
some video displays. Choose the setting that gives
correct lipsync.
Changing the balance alters the level of both
the left and right main loudspeakers to shift
the position of the stereo image, keeping the
overall level of the sound the same. The other
adjustments change the level of the corresponding
speaker(s) without affecting the remaining
speakers in the surround system.
To change the lipsync
To change a level
•
Press the _ button on the front panel, or
the BAL/ST button on the remote control,
until the display shows the level you want to
change.

Choosing the
surround mode
0.0dB
The surround mode determines how the sound
is divided between the loudspeakers in your
surround system. Each source is associated with
a default surround mode, which will be used
when you select that source, but you can choose
a different surround mode for the source if you
prefer.
L=R

Subsequent steps allow you to change the levels
of the surround speakers:
CENTER
SUBWOOFER
SURROUND
SURR BACK
0.0dB
0.0dB
0.0dB
0.0dB
For example, the standard surround mode for
the DVB source is PLIIX Movie, since most TV
broadcasts are Pro Logic encoded, but if you
are watching a music concert you may prefer to
choose the Stereo or Bypass surround modes, as
these give a more natural sound when listening
to music.
To change the surround mode
•
Press the AUDIO button on the remote
control to display the current surround mode.
•
Press again to step between the available
surround modes.
The options available depend on the source you

This product is designed and manufactured to meet
strict quality and safety standards. However, you
should be aware of the following installation and
operation precautions.
1. Take heed of warnings & instructions
You should read all the safety and operating
instructions before operating this appliance. Retain
this handbook for future reference and adhere to all
warnings in the handbook or on the appliance.
2. Water and moisture
The presence of electricity near water can be
dangerous. Do not use the appliance near water – for
example next to a bathtub, washbowl, kitchen sink, in
a wet basement or near a swimming pool, etc.
3. Object or liquid entry
Take care that objects do not fall and liquids are
not spilled into the enclosure through any openings.
Liquid-filled objects such as vases should not be
placed on the equipment.
4.Ventilation
Do not place the equipment on a bed, sofa, rug
or similar soft surface, or in an enclosed bookcase
or cabinet, since ventilation may be impeded. We
recommend a minimum distance of 50mm around
the sides and top of the appliance to provide
adequate ventilation.
The lightning flash with an arrowhead symbol within an equilateral triangle, is intended to alert the


user to the presence of uninsulated 'dangerous voltage' within the product's enclosure that may be
of sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of electric shock to persons.
The exclamation point within an equilateral triangle is intended to alert the user to the presence
of important operating and maintenance (servicing) instructions in the literature accompanying the
product.
5. Heat
Locate the appliance away from naked flames or
heat producing equipment such as radiators, stoves
or other appliances (including other amplifiers) that
produce heat.
6. Climate
The appliance has been designed for use in moderate
climates.
7. Racks and stands
Only use a rack or stand that is recommended for
use with audio equipment. If the equipment is on a
portable rack it should be moved with great care, to
avoid overturning the combination.
8. Cleaning
Unplug the unit from the mains supply before cleaning.
The case should normally only require a wipe with a
soft, damp, lint-free cloth. Do not use paint thinners or
other chemical solvents for cleaning.
We do not advise the use of furniture cleaning sprays
or polishes as they can cause indelible white marks if
the unit is subsequently wiped with a damp cloth.
9. Power sources
This appliance must be connected to a mains socket
outlet using the supplied power cord. To disconnect
this apparatus from power, you must disconnect the
power cord. Make sure the power cord is always easily
accessible.
Only connect the appliance to a power supply of the
type described in the operating instructions or as
marked on the appliance.
This is a Class 1 device and must be earthed.
The power switch is a single-pole switch. When the
switch is in the “Off ” position, the appliance is not
completely disconnected from the main power.
10. Power-cord protection
Power supply cords should be routed so that they are
not likely to be walked on or pinched by items placed
upon or against them, paying particular attention to
cords and plugs, and the point where they exit from the
appliance.
11. Grounding
Ensure that the grounding means of the appliance is not
defeated.
12. Power lines
Locate any outdoor antenna/aerial away from power
lines.
13. Non-use periods
If the unit has a stand-by function, a small amount of
current will continue to flow into the equipment in this
mode. Unplug the power cord of the appliance from
the outlet if left unused for a long period of time.
14. Abnormal smell
If an abnormal smell or smoke is detected from the
appliance, turn the power off immediately and unplug
the unit from the wall outlet. Contact your dealer
immediately.
15. Servicing
You should not attempt to service the appliance
beyond that described in this handbook. All other
servicing should be referred to qualified service
personnel.
