Primare I15 Analog Integrated Amplifier
The Primare I15 Analog Integrated Amplifier is all-analog, with 60 watts of power per channel, and the option of adding the MM15 moving magnet phono stage at any time. With the three-quarter-sized compact cabinet of I15, even greater possibilities open up for providing the highest quality music performance in even the smallest of living spaces.
The Primare I15 utilizes the same Hypex all-analog class D power module as used in the award-winning I15 Prisma. But, without the need to provide power to the digital to analog conversion stage and network player found in the I15 Prisma, the power supply has been configured to allow I15 to perform with even greater drive and detail.
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 the functionality.
An example of this is the compact, essentially three-quarter sized, of the 15 series, cabinets creating the sense of perfect proportions being just right for allowing placement within any living environment – or as we say 'lagom', not too much not too little, everything in balance, proportion, and harmony.
With the 15 Series, Primare offers a carefully considered array of models in order to allow for the best selection to fit any of your system needs. For example, the ultimate 15 Series system might be the DD15 CD transport, SC15 Prisma preamplifier, and network player, I15 analog integrated amplifier, and R15 MM/MC phono preamplifier, allowing for the best performance, analog or digital, with the greatest number of connection options. However, there may be no need for additional digital inputs, MC phono preamplification may not be a requirement, or simply to address budget or size considerations, a system composed of CD15 Prisma CD and network player with an I15 MM integrated amplifier with MM15 MM phono module installed could be assembled. This compact and reasonably priced system provides multiple analog source playback, including vinyl disc, as well as digital disc, stored or streamed media playback, with remarkable power, control, and connection flexibility.
Note: If you need a phono Moving Magnet phono section in the future, the MM15 Phono card can be purchased and added to your "I15 Analog", anytime, for $300. If you already need a phono stage, we suggest that you see the "I15 MM" model for a $100 savings over the "add on" phono card.
