Primare SPA22 Amplifier – the world’s first upgradable hi-fi component?


This Primare SPA22 Amplifier is the first one we’ve seen that offers PC type upgrade functionality. The object is to let you upgrade the components as more, different, better, sweeter technologies come on to the market. The Swedish designers have come up with a clever plugin board option, which means you should be able to keep the amp much longer before consigning it to that great big scrap heap in the sky. Such flexibility costs, of course (but you knew that right?) so prepare to shell out £3000.00 for the privilege of saving the planet.


 The SPA22’s innovative open architecture looks beyond the latest fad or next format war by providing an easy way to upgrade entire audio, video and control sections as new technologies arrive. As with PC upgrades proprietary video, DSP and communications boards, incorporating optimised versions of the latest digital processing, are simply plugged-in to replace the previous ones. In a single step, Primare has ‘built-out’ waste and obsolescence and secured long- lasting satisfaction for lovers of film and music…

  • I had this type of flexibility with my old Quad 33 Pre Amp with interchagable input boards so I could have 2 phono stages, or 1 phone and 1 line in etc
