I35 DAC – modular integrated amplifier and digital to analog converter
I35 DAC combines the DM35 digital to analog converter module with the award winning I35 modular integrated amplifier platform, featuring our UFPD 2 amplfification technology delivering 150 watts of power per channel and balanced inputs, with the option of adding the SM35 Prisma network player module at any time.
I35 DAC modular integrated amplifier is the latest iteration of Primare’s now iconic integrated amplifiers and among the first to use our new UFPD 2 power system, a radical reworking of Primare’s award-winning UFPD all-analog Class-D technology.
Providing 150 watts at 8 ohms of absolutely linear UFPD 2 amplification across the entire audible bandwidth, I35 DAC delivers naturally fast, clean and agile sound with an unprecedented ability to bring music to life.
In addition to a pair of XLR balanced and three RCA analog inputs, I35 DAC includes a DM35 full-featured digital to analog converter stage enabling up to PCM 768kHz/32bit and DSD 256 conversion.
The modular design of I35 DAC allows for the Prisma network player module, SM35, to be added to the amplifier at any time for unprecedented system customization.
I35 DAC continues a Primare tradition of delivering astonishing performance from compact and elegant integrated amplifiers for easy installation into virtually any living environment.
The look and feel of Scandinavia
We believe that every aspect of our products – the way they look, the satisfying feel of the controls – contributes to the overall experience of living with Primare. As a result, Primare products exude the hallmarks of Scandinavian design – simple, elegant designs, with approachable and easy to understand functionality.
An example of this is our signature control knob, known throughout the industry for both its appearance as well as how it feels in the hand as an input is selected or volume adjusted. – or as we say lagom, not too much not too little, everything in balance, proportion, and harmony.
Modular Design and System Building
We feel it is essential to offer modularity whenever possible in order to have just the right features, both now and for the future. Modular design is featured in the I25 and I35 modular integrated amplifiers, as well as the PRE35 modular preamplifier, all of which can be updated with DAC and Prisma modules, as well as the CD35 CD player that can have the Prisma module added, either at the time of purchase or at a later date. As a result, we are able to offer a carefully considered array of models and configurations in order to allow for device selection that best fits any system need. For example, a CD35 with Prisma module installed can be paired with an I35 integrated amplifier, allowing for a separation of analog and digital stages. Or, an I35 with DAC and Prisma modules installed can be paired with a DD35 CD transport, allowing for multi-room and multi-zone playback of every input, whether analog or digital source.
