Primare Prisma December Software Updates

We are pleased to announce that much anticipated updates will be released to the Prisma platform and application throughout this week.

The first automatic OTA (over-the-air) update to the Prisma platform will begin early in the week to prepare for the Prisma application updates that will be made available at the end of the week.

The updates include:

  • Roon Ready for SC15 Prisma and PRE35 Prisma
  • Embedding into the Prisma application:
    • TIDAL MAX for MQA and HiRes FLAC file playback
    • Qobuz for full 24/192 kHz
    • Gapless playback for both Qobuz and TIDAL (except for MQA files from TIDAL)

Note: to activate the new services, after updating the Prisma application in your mobile device, logout and log in to the streaming service account being used.

  • MQA decoding for all Prisma models allowing for first full unfold of MQA files, and full MQA decoding by those models with DM36 DAC module installed

As a result, there should be a noticeable improvement in audio performance as well as convenient and consistent connection when using TIDAL and Qobuz, in addition to extending Roon Ready media management and control to our preamplifier models.

Next up for Roon Ready certification are first the Prisma CD players, CD15 Prisma and CD35 Prisma, followed shortly by the home cinema models, SPA25 Prisma and SP25 Prisma.
