  1. Hi Manta_act, Nice to hear from another Primare owner, your right they are spot on for music reproduction. I do. like their styling and quality of build. Unfortunately the only thing it can do is play music via bypass mode and still sounds good for music/ so will probably keep this for audio and then look for something else for Home Theatre . All the HT side Dolby Digital side has died and Primare no longer have parts for this model I was told. I did here that they were looking at bringing out the SPA25 later this year but could be early next year the way its going so maybe worth having a
  2. Thanks Steam I have sort of wondered what extra do you incrementally gain with separates for the almost double the price. Yes Hifi can be a money pit not as much as boats. (I’m glad I don’t own one!) The primate receiver is working fine for Music with Direct Passthrough and have Primare CD player so DACs are good. So in similar position to you re Music even though oddly not what it was originally bought for. Might take a good look at the Denon had them in past and happy with them sound quality was pretty good rom memory.
  3. Thanks Snoopy8 for the advice, yeah I could look at seperate's so would need an Amp + Processor. The Primare SPA21 when I bought it didn't have the latest technology at the time was back to basics and probably more neutral musically oriented than Home Theatre. The Arcam link that you provided looks quite interesting so what would you recommend for AMP to match this? Thanks MC
  4. Hi All, Am looking for some recommendations for new AV Receiver to replace old Primare SPA21 which did a fantastic job to be honest for both movies and music reproduction. Tried to have it repaired but no longer supported and parts not available according to repairer and Primare. I am now using it for just for music in bypass mode as only option available and sound is still good, unfortunately end of Home Theatre life. I have a Yamaha RX-V477 as my back up which is now being used for Home Theatre it does the job for now. Other equipment: Sony OLED A1 TV
  5. Hello hoping to read and gain more information before next purchase.
