Primare PRE32/MM30/A34.2 Amplifier Bundle

Primare


Collections: Primare Amplifiers

Type: Amplifier


The PRE32 is an upgradable audiophile pre-amplifier designed to match the Primare A34.2 and all Primare power amplifiers. It features the comprehensive OLED display and control parameters established by the EISA award-winning I32 integrated amplifier. The PRE32 is housed in a heavy gauge alloy steel chassis, and incorporates two pairs (L/R) of low-noise balanced XLR inputs and 4 pairs of RCA inputs. In addition there are two pairs of RCA outputs and a single pair of balanced XLR outputs, as well as a record output, RS232, trigger, IR and RF inputs. MEDIA/streaming connections such as USB, iPod, LAN etc are available through the modular MM30 media board, which may be enhanced with a high quality aptX Bluetooth upgrade.

The MM30 Media Board

The MM30 multimedia upgrade module adapts the EISA award-winning I32 integrated amplifier and the recently introduced PRE32 stereo preamplifier for audiophile streaming, internet radio and gapless audio playback, through integration with UPnP devices such as PC/Mac/NAS iPod®, iPad®, iPhone® or USB thumb drive. It’s a genuine 24/192 DAC board including coax, TOSLINK, USB-A and USB-B inputs (incorporating an asynchronous master clock for low jitter), and a high resolution coax output. The MM30 can itself be enhanced with a high quality aptX Bluetooth option.

DAC upgrades from certain brands are known to interfere with the analogue output causing a noticeable deterioration in sound quality. Consistent with Primare design philosophy, the digital and analogue signal paths within the Primare media upgrade have their own dedicated ground planes; a design feature which protects the purity of the analogue signals.

The I32 and PRE32 can be purchased with or without media upgrade. Primare Control Apps are available for iPhone/iPad and Android.

Please go to the 'Primare App' section of the 'Streamers' product category and click 'Technical Guide' menu button to view a video about how to install the latest firmware on I32 and PRE32 with MM30 streaming boards. 

A34.2 power amplifier

The A34.2 is a 2 x 150 watt stereo power amplifier utilising proprietary UFPD technology. It is designed to provide high power output with very low distortion for Primare’s PRE32 audiophile preamplifier and all other preamps, as well as multi-channel audio processors. UFPD’s instantaneous rise time results in a naturally fast, clean and agile sound over a much wider frequency range and with exceptional headroom. Ecologically the A34.2 is far superior to conventional Class A/B designs being extremely efficient without generating excessive heat. - See more at: http://www.primare.net/product.asp?ProductID=54#sthash.7VHMr9Cj.dpuf
