Big powerful amps do not get any better than this. The A32 from Swedish high end audio manufacturer, Primare, is a big and physically dominating amp. It measures 17″ wide, 22″ deep and 9″ tall and weighs a hefty 90lbs. Bulk of that weight is due to the heavy gauge steel chassis and the massive 2000VA toroidal transformer that powers the two channels. In 8 ohms the A32 can produce 250W and in 4 ohms, 400W. This is more than sufficient to drive any speakers out there. There are many other features in the A32 that makes it a winner – like its dual mono with current feedback design, DC protection circuitry, short signal path etc, just to name a few. When using this in one of our audio rooms, it drove a pair of Magnepans MG3.7 with great east and control. There was just this relax demeanor in the amp where it flows with the incoming signal. With vocals, there was this richly textured mid-range, sweet highs and tight bottom end. With rock, it gave a thunderous display of its bass energy and detailed highs and mids. The A32 is not a fussy amp to match. It paired well with passive and active preamps and was adept with all genres of music. For under $2,000 now, this is a winning ticket to some high end sound at mid-fi prices. Add the reliability of the Primare brand and you are buying into years of worry free enjoyment (unless of course you abuse it). The A32 is still a current offering in their lineup.
Cosmetically, the unit looks good. Some minor scratches on the chassis cover and nicks along the edges from use so we have priced it accordingly. Manual is available online and the amp will be securely packed in its original box for safe shipping.
