PRE35 Preamplifier and A35.2 Amplifier

In this video we review the features and functionality of both the A35.2 amplifier and the PRE35 modular preamplifier platform that may make them the perfect addition to your system.

A35.2 is a powerful balanced input stereo amplifier, utilising our UFPD 2 amplficiation technology to deliver 200 watt of power per channel in stereo and 800 watts of power in bridged mono mode.

Technology

A35.2 is the most powerful amplifier we have designed using our new proprietary UFPD 2 analog class D amplification technology.

In fact, a completely new UFPD 2 power module was designed to provide the power and performance we felt necessary for such a statement stereo amplifier.

As a result, a completely new power supply, with custom wound transformers, was designed to deliver the immense electrical power needed for the amplifier module to produce the immense amount of musical power of which it is capable.

With that essential circuitry in place, A35.2 is capable of providing immediate and sustained high power output with very low distortion, instantaneous rise time and absolutely linear amplification across the entire bandwidth resulting in a naturally fast, clean and agile sound over an ultra-wide frequency range and with exceptional headroom.

A35.2 features balanced inputs and 200 watts of output power into 8 ohms, with the ability to be bridged to mono for 800 watts of output into 8 ohms. With this level of truly massive power output, A35.2 is capable of driving even the most demanding stereo speakers, or for an awesomely powerful multi-channel system array.

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 the standby button discretely placed within the Primare logo on the faceplate of our R15, R35 and A35.2 models – 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 integrated amplifiers, as well as the PRE35 preamplifier, all of which can be updated with DAC and Prisma modules, as well as the CD35 CD playerthat 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. The A35.2 is the obvious partner for the PRE35 in its various configuration, and while not modular itself, it does allow for a number of configuration options to fit system needs, either as a single stereo amplifier, or as a pair for use in bi-amping or in bridged mono mode for 800 watts of pure power per channel.

About brand

Primare

During the early 1980’s, leading Danish industrial designer and passionate audiophile Bo Christensen set out to create a new kind of audio company. Frustrated by the sound quality, aesthetics, and user interface of typical audio gear, he created a team of designers, which included gifted engineer Bent Nielsen, to form a technology group named Primare Systems AB. Their corporate mission was, first and foremost, design components of exceptional sound quality. Secondly, the products must have an elegant appearance, precise proportions and a user-friendly interface. Additionally, it was decided to eschew the industry standard twelve-month product life cycle and instead develop “living products” that could easily evolve as technologies and methodologies changed. The potent combination of clean Scandinavian design, simple yet elegant circuitry, and straightforward operation created audio components of uncanny originality.

TIME LINE

1986: 928 Series
Introduced shortly after being founded in 1985, Primare’s first products, the 928 series, embodied a true “minimalist aesthetic” that was in stark contrast to the typical “button-cluttered” audio components of the day

1992: 200 Series
The somewhat more radical 200 Series was acclaimed for its innovative and groundbreaking industrial design. It included not only a preamplifier, mono amplifiers, a tuner, and CD player, but also a system remote, unique at the time for ultra-high-end designs.

1994: 300 Series
In 1994, before leaving Primare, Bo developed the 300 series. Primare was transformed with the advent of these products. Not only was Primare’s ongoing aesthetic idiom firmly established, but also the new design approach allowed Bent to better craft the circuitry within for improved performance.

1998: 30 Series


In 1993 Primare formed an association with another Swedish audio company Xena, known for the popular Scandinavian brands Copland and QLN. This partnership fused the design and business talents of Mr. Nielsen and Xena’s Lars Pedersen, setting a new course for Primare,  resulting in the 1998 introduction of the 30 series, the basis for all future designs.
