Primare BD32 Universal Disc Player

Based on the popular Oppo 93, Primare was displaying their universal player that will retail for $5495. It plays all the typical Oppo disc formats including 3D Blu-ray and has custom audio, video and power supply circuitry. The BD32 is a gorgeous-looking product and the photo does not do it justice.

Yes, like all Primare products I've seen, the BD32 is very pretty.  I especially loved the clever, softly lit display with its big, bold function icons.

Why not just buy an Oppo BDP95 instead?

Besides being beautiful and having that gorgeous user interface, the Primare is handmade in Sweden; is compatible with all the usual disc formats (SACD, DVD, DVD-A, CD, Blu-ray); is compatible with Netflix and Internet Radio; is capable of streaming music and movies wirelessly, via Ethernet, or USB; has dual, 3D-capable HDMI 1.4 outputs; is capable of decoding native audio formats, including DSD, Dolby True HD, and DTS Master Audio; has balanced and unbalanced analog outputs, as well as S/PDIF, AES/EBU, and optical; and, perhaps most importantly, the BD32 uses Primare's proprietary audio stage and custom-made power supplies.

However one question, is the cd tray plastic or aluminium ?

The player uses the same Mediatek platform as the Oppo 93 and the Cambridge 751.  It's an upgreaded 93. So why spend $5000 when you can spend less and get the basic same thing. The difference is the upgraded audio stage, power supplies and a few input control and user interface functions.
