Primare PRE60 Preamplifier


Designed and built in Sweden, the PRE60 is a reference audiophile preamplifier designed to complement the matching A60 UFPD power amp. With these new components Primare reclaims its presence in the high-end music system market, reprising the iconic designs of previous decades with ravishing new separates, complete with state-of-the-art audio streaming performance and striking two-tone bodywork. By combining our traditional build quality and analogue circuit design with the finest digital processing, the first 60 series music system represents a major step-up from the 30 series and introduces a new supremely audiophile level of performance to Primare's product range.

The PRE60 features the comprehensive OLED display and control parameters established by the EISA award-winning I32 integrated amplifier. The integrated DAC/media board offers PRE60 functionality and streaming options can be fully controlled using the Primare App for iOS and Android, including input selection, volume control, file browsing and selection from online and stored music libraries.
