Prisma – Network and Multiroom Technology
Prisma is a bundle of technologies that provide the broadest range of network music player features and functionality. Essentially created to be a streamer that would allow everyone, and everywhere, in the household to explore, discover, and share the deeply satisfying experience of high-performance music playback – Prisma provides multi-room/multi-zone connectivity and control of stored and streamed media, whether wired or wireless, all managed from mobile devices through the dedicated Prisma system control app.
In addition to AirPlay 2, Bluetooth®, Roon Ready*, and Spotify Connect®, Prisma features Chromecast built-in, a unique streaming portal allowing effortless direct connection to hundreds of streaming applications and services, including voice control, for the best possible performance and user experience.
*with future update
New to the SC15 Prisma MK2 is automatic Room and Manual EQ function using a program built-in to the Prisma application. The EQ function can be used with any iOS mobile device, while Android devices require the use of the Zen microphone (currently on back-order until March 2024).
Room EQ automatic optimisation method is easy to use. During the measurement sequence, the speakers will play back pink noise for 60 seconds while the iOS device or Zen mic is moved around the room in large circular motions. The EQ function samples all positions in the room to identify each room mode.
When the measurement sequence is complete, the speaker compensation will be automatically calculated, and a bass filter will be applied to the system to counteract boundary effects, compensating for the interference caused by the room.
Once the room has been measured and the system calibrated using the automatic Room EQ, it is possible to manually adjust the speakers’ response to meet personal preferences.
The look and feel of Scandinavia
We believe that every aspect of our products – the way they look, the satisfying feel of the controls – contributes to the overall experience of living with Primare. As a result, Primare products exude the hallmarks of Scandinavian design – simple, elegant designs, with approachable and easy to understand functionality.
An example of this is the compact, essentially three-quarter sized, of the 15 series, cabinets creating the sense of perfect proportions being just right for allowing placement within any living environment – or as we say lagom, not too much not too little, everything in balance, proportion, and harmony.
With the 15 Series, we offer a carefully considered array of models in order to allow for the best selection to fit any of your system needs. For example, the ultimate 15 Series system might be the DD15 CD transport, SC15 MK2 Prisma preamplifier and network player, I15 analog integrated amplifier, and R15 MM/MC phono preamplifier, allowing for the best performance, analog or digital, with the greatest number of connection options. However, there may be no need for additional digital inputs, MC phono preamplification may not be requirement, or simply to address budget or size considerations, a system composed of CD15 Prisma CD and network player with an I15 MM integrated amplifier with MM15 MM phono module installed could be assembled. This compact and reasonably priced system provides multiple analog source playback, including vinyl disc, as well as digital disc, stored or streamed media playback, with remarkable power, control, and connection flexibility.
