The new Primare I32 amp (due out for Christmas) will have only two knobs, the current I30 has 3, & the CD32 has only half the number of buttons of the CD31 too.

Check it out on the primare.net website.

I have always liked the looks of the I30 but this new one is a little more 'modern' looking which is great.

Hope it sounds as good as the previous model or even better!

Anyone know what the pricing is going to be on this new range?

I feel a demo coming on to compare it with my I30.

The full spec. for the new i132 Amplifier is on the Primare website and it looks great. I understand that it will be available before the end of the year.

I am interested in exchanging my i130 for this new model but am having difficulty finding a dealer who has stock.

Also cannot find confirmation of the retail price.

Has anyone had the luck to track one down to have a demo? Have to assume that it will sound better than the previous model, although that will take some beating, but a demo is key.

Any information out there would be most helpful.

Thanks

It would seem less is more, it is on one dealers website in the UK at £2000. Hopefully WHF will get a test model soonish to put it through it's paces.

I believe that the UK distributer for Primare went into administration earlier this month. It is no longer listed on the Primare website. This may have an impact on the supply of the new line; but I hope not.

Paul Green Hi-fi had to have Primare send me my new I30 & CD31 direct from Sweden. My thanks goes out to Paul Green Hi-fi in Bath for pulling out all the stops to get me the gear (great service); after a long long wait & more than a few excuses from the distributer.

I assume the missing knob will be the on/off switch - always seemed a bit of overkill but it looks sweeet. Prefer the look of the CD31 I think, but they have both been around a long time. Will be nice to have a WHF review
- they don't even appear in the index at the back any more

Agree with Joe. Good service from here


They are trying to source the new Primare 132 amplifier for me but with lack of UK distribution it is making this rather difficult.

Here's hoping!!

Lack of space I think...

Lol, yeah I know - just I think Primare should be prioritised

Sorry to hear that - I lost a knob on my vintage silver series Pioneer amp and it wasn't easy finding a replacement.

Having said that, try emailing Primare to see if they can send a replacement - info@primare.net

Have you even read this thread, or are you just trying to get your name as last poster on every thread on the front page?

Actually in this single case, I saw "lost a knob" and was too hasty to reply from my own experience with my amp. Having duly reread this, IMHO I think it looks sleeker with one fewer knobs (as it was intended that is and not lost!)

I understand that a new UK Distributor for Primare has now been appointed, so we should be able to get hold of the new 30 range soon.

From what I can gather the new I32 will retail at £2200.

Hi Oakman - Any updates on this? Are you able to manage to get a demo / upgrade and what are the views of I32 vs I30? Please let us know.

Nothing this week but with a bit of luck and a following wind from Sweden, I might be able to answer your question next week!

It's ordered and may be available before Christmas so could not ask for a better present from Santa in his groto in the 'Arctic'.

Will put a report on here when I can.
