    Absolutely superb! Wonderful build quality and usability! Had predecessor SPA22 home a few years ago and loved the music but thought it was missing something with film. What however snowed on Audyssey EQ at the time and found it hard to listen to anything but. The replacement works better have something to do with that I have other speakers now than then (Ken Kreisel) and SPA23 fits like a glove with them. Film made as much justice as music - big, detailed, airy and dynamic. The sound is also very clean and easy to play higher than normal when the amp seems quite untroubled by the higher power output. Primare's UFPD works apparently fine. Did not notice any compression or listening fatigue - on the contrary! Here it is fun to listen, and listen more! However, I had wished for anything more pressure to the subwoofer, the same weight and depth as with NuForce AVP-18 preamp is not really there (and then it's a cheap preamp). Slightly more lightweight with Primare then. Advantages: + Detailed musicality works for both film and music + Large soundstage with power and airiness + Fast locking HDMI signals (unlike its predecessor) + Flexible settings + Solid design that oozes quality + Wonderfully beautiful to look at Cons: - Slightly more attack and bite to the sound would not hurt - Signal to the subwoofer is a bit tame and restrained - Somewhat counter-intuitive software updating - Gross volume (0.5b step would have been better) - Not OLED display (as its stereo sibling I32) - Will be as hot as most other integrated

    Stunning amplifier. It really gave a new life in my home theater and when I was looking for something that sounded just as good in two channel caught my SPA23. The combination with Primare BD32 is incomparable and music quality has never sounded this good at home. Extremely good dynamics, heat and aplomb.
