MrF, you have in your posession there the gem of Primare amplifier range IMHO, almost what is classed as a "loss leader" to me, it could easily be priced at the Â£1000-1100 mark. Only its big brother causes it to be looked down upon I reckon, not by me FWIW give me that amp any day over any other brit made job at the same price level. I think the A20 MkII (in essence your I20) second hand is one of the bargains of the century in this hobby.Nice to see what they write about your kit after you've bought it. Love my Primare entry level CD and Amp (CD21 & I20). Must get round to demoing one of the *30 amps at some point - not many dealers stock Primare round my way.
Wow, she drove, and didn't talk all the way AND you got a really nice amp. You are one lucky chap IMO.:dude::dude::dude::dude::dude::dude::dude::dude::dude::dude::dude::dude::dude:contourmy i30 remote also operates my naim 5x,which is very handy.
no primare dealers in my area at all. i made a 500 mile round trip to the republic of ireland for my amp and got lost along the way ! !had a massive row with my darling girlfriend (who was driving) and never spoke the rest of the trip .
but it was well worth the stress ! !
Yeah Phil useful I agree and putting review links like that in with the quality of the photographs which are stunning, quite a smart move actually for potential buyers browsing the net and finding that site. Does its own marketing really, PS I noticed you had a loan spell of a A30.1, that is one lovely looking rig you have there at Chez Sony. Quick cue to gratuitous shot your loaned A30.1.Thats a really usefuly site Colin. It would be great if other sites were as comprehensive. I guess they have faith in their products whatever a review says. I have a Primare A30.1 on loan and as you would expect its remote controls my Bow cdp, for obvious reasons. But what surprised me was the Primare's RC can even turn off the display on amp and cdp.
Both lovely looking devices - have said earlier Sony has a great eye for detail. Still prefer the Primare though, good to see where Hovalnd got the insparation for the HP-100 from though, or maybe Primare my money is on Bo.C coming up with the look first though.might get lynched for saying this in a Fans + Owners thread, but I prefer the looks of the Bel Canto to the Primare :minikiev:then again, you've all seen what my kit looks like, so I shouldn't really comment :lmao:
