The NP5 Prisma has Ninja skills too as it's been designed to be able to be slipped inconspicuously into any system setup. It can be hooked up to any product with a digital input, both stereo and multi-channel. Once connected, it provides you with full Prisma connectivity and control, making it a versatile network player for everyone and every system.

Siemen Algra, Primare general manager, told StereoNET:

NP5 Prisma represents the best solution for incorporating the latest stored and streamed digital media playback features for owners of any of our past products incorporating a digital input. We particularly wanted to provide our existing streaming customers, some who have been using our initial technology launched eight years ago, with an unprecedented update, one with all the amazing features our current Prisma platform can provide, so we have developed the NP5 Prisma update program.
