Primare SP33 4KVM AV Preamp


Featuring the new 4KVM 4K UHD video module, with six 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.

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 personalize 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 4KVM video circuitry features 4K and 3D video pass-through, with matrix switching for six HDMI inputs and two ARC assignable 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.
