PRODUCT REVIEW: Primare CD35/I35 Prisma, Hi Fi News


“There’s something deeply alluring about this streaming CD player/ integrated amp combination, in both sound and function. An enjoyable music maker, it brings together a myriad different digital sources under one roof – so to speak – and allows easy control of them all. In turn, this makes it easier to appreciate the music without being distracted by the technology. Now there’s a thought for the future…”



A Hi Fi Choice Group Test win makes a compelling case for the gorgeous Primare CD35 flagship CD player, which has beaten rivals from Cyrus, Marantz, Musical Fidelity, Rega and Roksan to top honours under the same test conditions. Writing in the March issue David Vivian says “the Primare CD35 looks rather self-effacing. Neat, clean, minimal. It doesn’t sound it…the dizzying speed, dynamic tension and mix of delicacy and bite are jaw dropping…if you want to discover just how glorious your CDs can sound, this is the one to get.”
