Similar amps to compare would be the Krell integrated, Caspian, Naim XS, Destiny etc.
I only heard it a couple of time & IMO It's a good amp. AFAIK It retails arnd 1.2-1.4 Lacs. It sounds musical, may sound bright with a few speakers & also seems to lack grunt in the bottom end. So make sure of the speakers you are pairing them with. I Know dinyaar is one person who has heard it quite a few times he might be able to give you more input.
As for the resale value i'm no expert, but i guess if it's in good condtion then arnd 50k would be a good deal.
All the best
The I 30 is a good amp, it is very hard to find bad reviews (pro or user) on it. However, according to dinyaar (as commented by him in my amp thread), it may have some issues with occasional break down, as far as I can remember. Please try to get this out of dinyaar why he said so. I don't see him around for the last few days, probably very busy with the beforemath and the aftermath of the budget. He would also know what is a fair price for a 3 year old I 30.
I would like to know how good Primare I30 is..
What other amps it compares to ..
what should be the price of 2-3yrs used amp.
I dont think the I 21 is the amp to buy. The bigger amp is far better sounding. Similar sound with much more dynamics.
Regarding the Primare "cold" sound , does the A32 power amp also shares the same sound as I30 . And how is Bryston 4bsst sound signature compared to Primare.
Though I have no plans of buying a new amp now, even if buy it sometimes later , looks like the NAD will always have to remain in the system , for a large section of songs
