Primare I35

I can’t help thinking that right now, this is perhaps the focus point in amplifiers. It’s the point where all the good things in audio come together, and beyond this you are more likely to get ‘more’ instead of ‘better’. OK, if you triple the cost of the I35, you begin to get back to ‘better’ as well as ‘more’, but the Primare I35 just does it all so well, it makes me question the need to spend more. 

We sometimes try to describe products in a sound bite. It’s the ‘if I can sum this up in a single word...’ cliché, and I’m as guilty of it as the next scribe. With the Primare I35, though, sound bites don’t work because it’s more complex than that. So, instead, if I could try and describe the I35 as a person, it would be ‘a good bloke with whom I’d happily sink a few pints.’ Not showy or self-important... just entertaining to be around. As any British bloke will tell you, pub-related praise is the highest you can get!
