FAQ: Prisma

How do you play Qobuz with Prisma?

Currently Qobuz is played from the application on your mobile device and cast to the NP5 Prisma using either Chromecast built-in technology (resolution up to 24/96kHz, not gapless) or AirPlay (resolution up to 16/44.1kHz, gapless). 

You can access Qobuz in two ways:

  • Using Chromecast built-in, with resolution up to 24/96
  • Using Roon, either with Chromecast built-in as endpoint, with resolution up to 24/96, or directly with Roon Ready, following pending update, with resolution up to 24/192

We are currently in discussion with Qobuz regarding the adoption of their Connect platform, in part to provide gapless and resolution up to 24/192kHz, but can’t be sure when we might be able to offer that (maybe around the time Qobuz is available in Sweden 😉 

One final note: with Roon, either using Chromecast built-in as endpoint (again 24/96) or soon with the pending Roon Ready update (24/192), you will be able to play Qobuz gapless, along with the many other features Roon media management software provides.
