The MM30 multimedia upgrade module adapts the EISA award-winning I32 integrated amplifier and the recently introduced PRE32 stereo preamplifier for audiophile streaming, internet radio and gapless audio playback, through integration with UPnP devices such as PC/Mac/NAS iPod®, iPad®, iPhone® or USB thumb drive. It’s a genuine 24/192 DAC board including coax, TOSLINK, USB-A and USB-B inputs (incorporating an asynchronous master clock for low jitter), and a high resolution coax output. The MM30 can itself be enhanced with a high quality aptX Bluetooth option.
DAC upgrades from certain brands are known to interfere with the analogue output causing a noticeable deterioration in sound quality. Consistent with Primare design philosophy, the digital and analogue signal paths within the Primare media upgrade have their own dedicated ground planes; a design feature which protects the purity of the analogue signals.
The I32 and PRE32 can be purchased with or without media upgrade. Primare Control Apps are available for iPhone/iPad and Android.
