About the Primare CD35

A finely tuned CD player

This is the finest CD player Primare has ever made.

A finely tuned CD player

Primare often separates the basic tasks of playing CDs, offering dedicated disc transports and a variety of components with built-in DACs. In the case of the CD35, all of the key ingredients — the disc drive, DAC, and output stage — work together to create beautifully balanced, natural sound. This is the finest CD player Primare has ever made.

The CD35's high-performance TEAC disc drive supplies a jitter-free signal to the digital output stage, which boasts its own discrete power supply, ensuring that the digital signal sent to the player's DAC is as noise-free as possible. The DAC is the state-of-the-art ESS ES9028Pro SABRE DAC. This 8-channel DAC chip is used in a double-differential mode here — four DAC channels per stereo channel — resulting in vanishingly low distortion and noise.

Attention to every detail, inside and out

The CD35 is no lightweight whether you're talking sound quality or build quality. Weighing 23 pounds, it's one of the heftier CD players we carry, yet its minimalist design gives it an air of visual elegance. Inside, carefully crafted ultra-short signal paths allow each individual component and sub circuit to operate sympathetically to achieve a cohesive whole.

The CD35's playback combines absolute accuracy with compelling musicality, which you'll experience whether you use the player's balanced XLR or unbalanced RCA outputs to connect to your gear. You can select either fixed or variable volume level — choose fixed mode for connecting to a receiver or preamp, while variable mode is the best option for connecting directly to an amplifier or powered speakers.

Stylish sound from Scandinavia

Founded in Sweden in the mid '80s, Primare relies on a talented team of designers to create its innovative high-end audio components. Among audiophiles, their equipment is admired both for its exceptional sound quality and its elegant appearance.
