Primare CD15 Prisma
Best possible performance with full music playback.
The CD15 Prisma is a compact digital music source that features a dedicated CD drive with slot and Prisma control and connectivity technology that feeds a carefully engineered DAC stage and a finely tuned analog output stage that enables full-featured digital music playback from stored or streamed media, as well as multi-room multi-zone capabilities.
In fixed output mode, it is a complete digital music source for any high-end audio system. In variable output mode, simply connect a pair of powered speakers to get a complete digital music system.
Prisma – Network and Multiroom Technology
Prisma is a bundle of technologies that provide a wide range of network music player functions. Prisma was designed as a streamer that allows anyone, anywhere in the home to explore, discover and share the deeply satisfying experience of powerful music playback.
Prisma offers multi-room/multi-zone connectivity and control of stored and streamed media, whether wired or wireless, and can be controlled from mobile devices via the dedicated Prisma system control app.
In addition to AirPlay 2, Bluetooth®, Roon Ready and Spotify Connect®, Prisma features Chromecast, a unique streaming portal that enables effortless direct connection to hundreds of streaming apps and services, including voice control, for the best possible performance and user experience.
The Scandinavian look and feel
Primare believes that every aspect of their products – the look, the pleasant feel of the controls – contributes to the overall experience of living with Primare. Therefore, Primare products are characterized by Scandinavian design – simple, elegant design with easy-to-understand functionality.
An example of this is the compact, essentially three-quarter-size cabinets in the 15 Series, which feel like the perfect proportions to be placed just right in any living environment – or as they say, lagom, not too much, not too little, all in balance, proportion and harmony.
With the 15 Series, Primare offers a carefully considered range of models to provide the best choice for all your system requirements. For example, the ultimate 15 Series system could consist of the DD15 CD transporter, SC15 Prisma preamplifier and network player, I15 analog Vollverstärker, and R15 MM/MC phono preamplifier, giving you the best performance, analog or digital, with the greatest number of connection options.
However, it may be that there is no need for additional digital inputs, that an MC phono preamp is not required, or that simply for budget or size reasons a system of CD15 Prisma CD and network player could be put together with an I15 MM integrated amplifier with MM15 MM phono module installed.
This compact and affordable system enables playback of multiple analog sources, including records, as well as digital records, stored or streamed media with remarkable performance, control and connectivity flexibility.
