Excerpt: It takes a brave company to change a winning formula, but that’s exactly what Primare has done with the I32 integrated amp.

Pros: Immaculate build, elegant design, plenty of power, informative presentation
Cons: Clinical sound fails to engage, treble lacks subtlety, stilted sense of rhythm
