The new SPA23 4KVM AV amplifier is definitively Primare, integrating superior innovation, flexibility and signal purity with an exclusive visual sophistication. Equipped with five identical 120W UFPD amplifiers, HD audio processing, the new 4KVM 4K UHD video module, and a versatile range of analogue and digital audio inputs, the SPA23 will realise the potential of high definition film and music sources.
The SPA23 4KVM performs brilliantly at the centre of your home AV system. Through simple onscreen menus and the new C24 remote supplied you can optimise the performance of every component with ease. Connect all of your sources to the SPA23 and customise each input with a name - ‘Blu-ray’ or ‘cable’ for instance. Then select a surround format for each according to source: Dolby TrueHD or DTS-HD Master Audio would be appropriate for FullHD movies from Blu-ray disc or online sources. Next match the sound of each format to your room with precise adjustments for level, speaker type, crossover frequency, delay and bass management. Fine-tune performance and functionality still further with sensitivity control and 12V trigger activation per input. With all of your sources set-up you can create automatic audio and video associations between them, achieving perfect sound and picture synchronisation every time through the SPA23’s global delay DSP. New 4KVM video circuitry features 4K and 3D video pass-through, with matrix switching facility for six HDMI inputs and two ARC assignable HDMI outputs. All this is possible with fingertip control from the C24 remote. Beyond the handset, compatibility with third party home automation systems is assured through IR and RS232 connections.
Use the SPA23 4KVM with the matching and acclaimed BD32 MKII universal player, with 4K upsampling, and add the A34.2 two-channel power amplifier for full seven channel surround.
