Primare has launched the SPA25 Prisma, a nine channel home cinema amplifier designed to satisfy cinephiles and audiophiles alike. Distribution is via Karma AV.

The new flagship model features Dolby Atmos and DTS X codec support, along with Dirac Live EQ, 4k HDR switching, eARC over HDMI, and proprietary Prisma network player technology.

Power output is rated at 90 watts per channel, with all channels driven. In addition, an advanced adaptive power supply provides increased power output in stereo mode: 145/250 watts into 8/4 ohms and 290/405 watts into 8/4 ohms with four channels used in bi-amp stereo mode.

This power management flexibility allows the SPA25 Prisma to offer as many as seventeen customisable input presets, and five customisable speaker setup presets, allowing integrators to accommodating a variety of digital and analogue input and speaker/DSP configurations, including 5.1.4, 7.1.2, or 5.1.2 with bi-amped Front Left/Right channels, and 7.1.4 when a stereo amp is added for front speakers.

Room tuning comes via Dirac Live Room Correction technology.

The Spa25 also sports Primare’s Prisma network player, offering access to hundreds of music services, including high resolution platforms like Qobuz, Spotify, and Tidal HiFi. It’s also Roon Ready.

Selling for £5,000, the Primare SPA25 Prisma will make its UK show debut at The Bristol Hi Fi Show, which runs February 24-26 Feb (head to room 332 for a hands-on).
