SPA25 Prisma Home Cinema Integrated Amplifier
The SPA25 Prisma is a multi-channel integrated amplifier and processor designed for both cinephile and audiophile, composed of carefully considered and crafted features and functionality to provide the best home cinema experience for the greatest number of people.
For the cinephile, the SPA25 Prisma includes a nine-channels of amplification, with a maximum total output power of 900 watts, 4K dynamic HDR switching, eARC, Dirac Live and eleven-channel Atmos/DTS X processing that, with the addition of a stereo amplifier, allows for 7.1.4 cinema configurations
For the audiophile, the SPA25 Prisma utilizes dual eight channel DAC chips allowing for a unique digital to analog conversion circuit that allocates four channels of conversion to the front left and right channel output for improved stereo performance. That combined with the adaptive power supply providing power delivery of 145 watts into 8-ohms and 250 watts into 4-ohm speaker loads in stereo mode, as well as the ability to bi-amp the main left and right channels supplying 290 watts into 8 ohms and 405 watts into 4 ohms per channel, make the SPA25 Prisma the most powerful “stereo” integrated amp Primare has ever produced.
Primare’s proven Prisma network player platform provides complete streaming features and functionality, as well as multi-room / multi-zone options, with AirPlay2, Bluetooth, Chromecast, Roon*, and Spotify Connect (HiFi ready). With the associated Prisma application, combined with the onscreen setup menu, offering easy system customisation from the listening position. Additionally, Prisma provides comprehensive control of network connected hard drives, as well as embedded Prisma Radio, Tidal HiFi*, and Qobuz* services for simplified access to these most used music sources.
*By future update, noting that Roon with AirPlay and Chromecast as endpoint is available now with Roon Ready by future update.
For both cinephile and audiophile, Dirac Live® Room Correction utilises state-of-the-art, patented algorithms to analyse and digitally reduce the impact of the room, enhancing the performance of any audio system. Dirac optimises the sound not only with respect to frequency, but also to phase, providing not only linear frequency response but precise arrival time for both two and multi-channel listening with previously unheard detail and clarity.
Individualised control and connectivity is afforded by seventeen customisable input pre-sets for virtually any combination of digital and analog, video and audio input configurations, combined with five customisable speaker setup pre-sets for a variety of speaker and DSP configurations to suit any viewing and listening requirements.
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 idea of being inconspicuous, of not drawing undue attention, which is inherent in the compact physical design of the SPA25 Prisma and elimination of unnecessary display and front panel controls.
