Primare NP5 Prisma Streamer now Roon Ready
Primare has announced that its NP5 Prisma network player has achieved Roon Ready certification.
Primare's NP5 Prisma network player now has Roon Ready status and owners can expect an automatic update to land on their device as of today.
The proudly Scandanavian-brand's NP5 Prisma adds its Roon Readiness to an already comprehensive list of connectivity options including AirPlay 2, Bluetooth, Chromecast built-in, and Spotify Connect.
For anyone with a digital library of music on their network, as well as looking to access subscription-based streaming services, Roon is pretty much a must-have. Roon is an intuitive and engaging way to browse, organise, and listen to music. Additionally, artist photos, credits, bios, reviews, lyrics, tour dates, and composers are located automatically, then interconnected by links to build a surfable digital magazine. Roon is also a multi-room, multi-user networked audio platform that offers bit-perfect playback, DSD and PCM upsampling, multi-channel support, and Signal Path display.
Rob Darling, Director of Strategy, Third-Party Partnerships at Roon Labs, told StereoNET:
The broad, multi-purpose nature of the NP5 Prisma created some tricky obstacles for the team at Primare, and we appreciate all the hard work Primare's team put in to overcome them. Primare has proven to be a great partner, and we look forward to seeing more Prisma models Roon Ready certified in the very near future.
The Swedish company's NP5 Prisma has been designed to be small enough to slip inconspicuously into any system setup. Furthermore, the Primare streamer can be used with any product with a digital input, whether stereo or multi-channel, and now provide Roon Ready connectivity and control.
Siemen Algra, General Manager at Primare, remarked:
The NP5 Prisma being Roon Ready makes it even easier for everyone in the household to experience high-performance music playback, all managed from familiar devices.
Terry Medalen, Marketing Manager at Primare, added:
The ability to offer Roon has always been a critical component in the development of the Prisma model range because it gives our customers the most sophisticated media management tool available to enhance the total experience that our products provide.
The NP5 Prisma network player is priced at US$600 (MYR $2,700). We can expect more Primare devices joining Roon with the SC15 Prisma network player and DAC, CD15 Prisma and CD35 Prisma CD and network players, PRE35 Prisma preamplifier, and I15 Prisma, I25 Prisma, and I35 Prisma integrated amplifiers are all being readied for certification.
