Each single Primare device, like e.g. the A30.7, is measured prior to shipping and checked for trouble-free function.
The well-structured onscreen menu of the SP33 enables an extensive configuration of each input complete with editable clear name, assignment of picture and sound sources, stereo audio mode, triggers as well as a level and audio delay adjustment for synchronising picture and sound.
With its DVDO video board the Primare almost offers the parameters of a dedicated video processor. Thus for the sat receiver the reviewers were using e.g. the low setting of the mosquito artefact reduction together with a delicately dosed contour and detail enhancer to get a quieter and yet crisper picture from the TV reception.
Rare and highly professional: the trigger signals for the remote activation of power amps, active speakers/subwoofers et cetera can be coupled with individual delay settings to avoid unwanted start-up peaks. This will save you quite a few walks to the fuse box.
