New Primare NP5 Prisma MK2 Shipping Now

We are pleased to announce that the revised version of our popular NP5 Prisma network player, the NP5 Prisma MK2 has begun shipping. 

The development of the new model was necessitated primarily by the AKM chip factory fire, causing long-term disruption of the supply of the critical sample rate converter (SRC) chip at the heart of the NP5 Prisma design that allowed for the selection of output sampling frequencies. 

To continue to make available one of our most popular models with the minimum of interruption, we have sourced a readily available SRC chip and redesigned the circuit to maintain the performance of the original NP5 Prisma while allowing for:  

  • DoP (DSD over PCM) output as an available setting option when using Roon Ready and a DoP ready DAC. 

  • MQA passthrough allowing for Tidal Master and MQA files from a NAS to passthrough for higher resolution processing by a connected MQA capable DAC. 

All other features and functionality remain the same as in the original version, with connection and control features that include AirPlay 2, Bluetooth, Chromecast built-in, Roon Ready, Spotify Connect (including Spotify HiFi when launched), and a host of other features – making the NP5 Prisma MK2 more than ever the network player for everyone.
