I know Vix has one of these too but I just received an SP32 to test and wanted to share some thoughts. I currently have an Integra Research RDC-7.1 (Onkyo flagship from 3-4 years ago, RRP was £4K, it was a higher end design than the current PR-SC886). Other gear is an EAD Powermaster 7300 and a full set of Dali Euphonias. Build Quality: Very solid build with a sort of minimalist front panel, not as intricate as the more expensive Integra but well above build standards for some other equipment in the £2K+ market. Connections: Only 3 HDMI inputs and basic video. Sound and hifi type connections are much better catered for, 2 Balanced Stereo Inputs, AES/EBU input and 3 fully programmable triggers were the more unusual bits I saw on the back. HDMI and whole video board is a removable module, a 5 HDMI input card with HD codec dcode and full VP is already announced for Q2/Q3. Operation: Very nice clear display which enlarges text for volume changes or input changes, unlike the Integra you can clearly read the volume and input from the listening position (Sounds minor but it is actually quite important). Powerup inludes a short warm up and some relay switching but no relays switching seems to occur once it powers up. Volume is quite sensitive but no clicks or hiccups. Input switcher is stiff on the demo unit. Remote is very cheap but I guess most people will use a bigger multi remote. Input switching is very quick with the exception of HDMI that takes 5-7 seconds to lock on! (I have asked Primare about this). Its a bit odd that there is no info type button, the Primare only gives the most basic info about the input (Dolby, DTS, 2ch PCM or Multi PCM). All inputs can be renamed and can have any audio or video assigned (Including HDMI for Audio and a different connection for video type combos). Crossover is per speaker pair in 10hz steps (I use 70/70/100). There is also delay and trim setting per input. Triggers are fully assignable to zone or particular input. I like the way you can disable unused inputs to make selection using the selector knob much easier. HDMI Compatability: Surprisingly good. I have a BH200 which is known to cause issues with some gear but it has behaved very well so far. The SP32 cannot decode HD codecs but does accept multichannel PCM up to 7.1. Apart from the long lock on I have not had any dropouts or issues so far, my chain is actually BH200 to SP32 to Lumagen HDP over DVI to Projector and it works well including input switching and powering on anf off various parts of the chain. In fact the SP32 seems to negotiate video levels with the BH200 and so I get better video performance with the SP32 in the chain!?! I tested DD, DTS, DTS24/96, DTS-ES, DD-EX, TrueHD5.1 (Decoded to 5.1PCM), TrueHD 6.1 (Decoded to 6.1 PCM) and PCM 5.1 and all worked fine. The only complaint I have is DPL2X is forced on for lossy codecs and forced off for MPCM (Again I have asked Primare about this). 1080P/24 pass though was OK too. Delay is a global setting, not a per input one (Seems like an oversight). Sound Quality: First up, the noise floor it is incredibly low. A volume of 30 is more than loud enough for most sound tracks on my setup, I could not hear any noise with my ear at point blank to the speaker above the very very low amp noise floor until I reached 65 on the dial. The volume goes up to 99, this thing could happily tear your head off in most setups, considering the Integras known peak voltage figures I reckon this thing must be capable of 20V+ on the balanced outputs. Sound quality with stereo source is rather excellent, its is on the slightly lush side of neutral, probably well suited to the likes of B&W. Imaging and the very low noise floor make for some lovel clarity and an excellent dynamic range. I experienced better imaging and a stronger midband than the integra, detail was likely helped by the very low noise floor. Contrary to what the manual says, 24/176 and 24/192 stereo work fine over coax digital and they work well. Films were more enveloping with all soundtracks and had more depth and body than I'm used to in the HD soundtracks. Steering was as expected fast and accurate, the very low noise floor helps, it seems some lossless tracks have a very high dynamic range on this unit (The first attack in iron man has explosions that must be +15-20db over dialogue), great if you like to be around reference level but there is a night mode to compensate for quieter times. My test discs were The Rock Bluray, Dark Knight Bluray, Live At Abbey Road Vol 1 Bluray, Lady in the Water HDDVD, Matrix HDDVD, Master and Commander DVD, DVE HDDVD, Iron Man Bluray and NIN HDDVD. I only tried digital inputs. The unit has a true balanced analogue pass through and I suspect an even lower noise floor with balanced analogue. I would consider the new Sony SACD player to go with this unit if I buy but until then I unfortunately dont have an analogue source I would conisder worthy of listening to. Verdict: If they fix the missing parts in the user interface and the HDMI slight noise on hand shake I will probably buy this unit (They are doing comparatively well considering its Firmware V1.00). These fixes are all that keeps it from a kind of minimalist perfection for my own use, the sound quality and noise floor are excellent so if it is made functionally perfect then I cant ask for a lot more and in my case it is then worth £2.5K.
