The Primare A34.2 amplifier significantly changed what I formerly thought of Class D. Having had lots of experience with previous amplifier using B&O ICE modules, Hypex and others, I always appreciated the extreme clarity, extension and bass control of this technology. However, like others, the overall sonic signature seemed a little flat and sterile for me. Ultimately, they always left me wanting. The Primare changed that. The A34.2 is Primare's proprietary 'UPFD' design -- no off the shelf modules. I immediately appreciated that as I knew I wasn't going to get a 'house sound' representative of so many Class D amps on the market using the same old tech. It was developed from the ground up to be Primare's new amplifier technology, and as I understand it will be their design of choice for future amps.
The A34.2 has everything a great Class D amp offers compared to typical Class A or A/B amps -- lightweight (although the Primare is handsomely robust looking and feeling), extremely efficient with low power consumption (I left it on all the time, which is recommended) and negligible heat generation (allowing for placement in enclosed quarters if needed). Where this amp differs from it's Class D competition is what counts the most -- the sound! Absolutely SUMPTUOUS midrange and a holographic, reach-out-and-touch-it dimensionality. It was simply revelatory and immensely enjoyable and musical. For those of you with similar previous Class D experiences as mine, I invite you to hear what this amp can do. It sounds nothing like typical Class D amps, but more like an excellent Class A/B amp.
I'm the original owner, purchased from an authorized dealer. I'd rate it a conservative 8. For all practical intents, it's as-new. In absolute full disclosure as an honest and upstanding seller, I've taken a couple pictures of the only things I noticed. There is the faintest scratch in the top case toward the back, not seen unless in the right light, and there is an almost imperceptible mark on the right side. I had this amp displayed prominently and it looks as-new. Any other apparent flaws in the pictures are just dust or particles picked up by my camera. Functionally perfect.
Included with the amp are all original packaging and materials. Priced to sell at over 50% off retail. Please check my feedback here and on Audiogon (username tholt -- 330, 100% positive).
