The Primare SP32 HD Pre-amp Processor is a fully balanced design in the highest Primare tradition, delivering exceptional performance and ease-of-use enhanced by cool Scandinavian aesthetics. It's also a comprehensively specified AV controller, complete with the full gamut of Dolby® and dts® multi-channel audio formats, and supporting decoded multi-channel PCM audio from Full HD sources through three switchable HDMI1.3 A/V inputs, and also capable of decoding it's own Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD bitstream signals. Other features include a dedicated 7.1 channel input, balanced inputs/outputs, fully configurable format independent bass management, discrete IR and full RS232 operation, programmable triggers, and upgradable architecture.

The Primare SP32 HD Pre-amp Processor's modular design allows for DSP, video and connections to be upgraded with proprietary Primare boards, incorporating thoroughly evaluated and optimised versions of the latest technologies and connectors. This makes the Primare SP32 HD Pre-amp Processor an ideal high-end audio and video processing platform for many years to come.

Almost every parameter in the configuration of the Primare SP32 HD Pre-amp Processor can be user defined. Any input can be assigned a name and associated with any audio and video source. Surround format, trigger activation and input sensitivity can be specified for each input, and surround formats can be custom-set for level, speaker type, crossover frequency, delay and bass configuration. Delay adjustment of 140mS is incorporated for the best possible picture to sound synchronisation. All of the Primare SP32 HD Pre-amp Processor's functions can be controlled in three ways: from the front panel, IR or RS232.

The Primare SP32 HD Pre-amp Processor provides three HDMI v1.3 inputs for audio and video, incorporating a user-selectable audio processing and bypass function. HDMI v1.3 capability is significant because it carries uncompressed multi-channel PCM audio from a Blu-ray player through the SP32 HD's DACs to the amplifiers and loudspeakers. This means that while Primare's proprietary HD audio board is being perfected, HD audio in its highest resolution is processed through the SP32 HD and is immediately available to all SP32 HD owners.

Eight pairs of unbalanced and two pairs of balanced analogue audio inputs are provided together with seven digital audio inputs (incl. AES/EBU). In addition to HDMI v1.3, video inputs include 3 Component, 3 S-Video and 4 Composite inputs. There are Component, S-Video and Composite analogue video outputs. Blu-ray, DVD-A and SACD players may also connect with 7.1 channel analogue audio inputs. Both balanced and unbalanced pre-amplified audio outputs (FL, FR, C, SUB, SR, SL, SBL and SBR) are provided for connection to any type of power amplifier.
