Primare has launched a new high-end pre/power hi-fi system. Designed and built in Sweden, the PRE60 preamplifier and A60 power amplifier signify the brand's return to the premium music market; the two-tone design of the set is intended to echo earlier models from the brand. The company describes the duo as "supremely audiophile." 

The PRE60 (pictured below) is a audiophile pre-amp/music streamer with heavy gauge alloy steel chassis and OLED display, and sports two pairs of low-noise balanced XLR inputs, 4 pairs of stereo phonos, USB A/USB B, Ethernet, RS232, 12v trigger and IR inputs. Outputs comprise two pairs of phonos, plus two pairs of balanced XLR outputs, as well as a record output. File support extends to 24 bit/192kHz content played from NAS or PC. Additional control for input selection, volume and media browsing can come from Primare's iOS and Android apps.

The A60 (pictured above) is a 2 x 250W UFPD (Ultra Fast Power Device) amplifier. Primare says this Class D/switch-mode design provides "a natural dynamic quality of sound across the entire audible spectrum while retaining an amazing energy-saving efficiency." Each channel incorporates unbalanced phono and balanced Neutrik XLR inputs, as well as WBT Nextgen speaker terminals, trigger and RS232 control.

The PRE60 preamp retails for £6,500, while the A60 power amp is priced at £6,500. Distribution is via Karma-AV. For more on Karma-AV's product portfolio and services, visit our partner page here.
