Technology

CD15 Prisma is a compact complete digital music source featuring a slot load dedicated CD drive with Prisma control and connectivity technology feeding a carefully crafted DAC stage and finely tuned analog output stage, allowing for full featured digital music playback from either 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 form a complete compact digital music system.

Prisma – Network and Multiroom Technology


Prisma is a bundle of technologies that provide the broadest range of network music player features and functionality. Essentially created to be a streamer that would allow everyone, and everywhere, in the household to explore, discover, and share the deeply satisfying experience of high-performance music playback – Prisma provides multi-room/multi-zone connectivity and control of stored and streamed media, whether wired or wireless, all managed from mobile devices through the dedicated Prisma system control app.

In addition to AirPlay 2, Bluetooth®, Roon Ready*, and Spotify Connect®, Prisma features Chromecast built-in, a unique streaming portal allowing effortless direct connection to hundreds of streaming applications and services, including voice control, for the best possible performance and user experience.

The look and feel of Scandinavia

We believe that every aspect of our products – the way they look, the satisfying feel of the controls – contributes to the overall experience of living with Primare. As a result, Primare products exude the hallmarks of Scandinavian design – simple, elegant designs, with approachable and easy to understand functionality.
An example of this is the compact, essentially three-quarter sized, of the 15 series, cabinets creating the sense of perfect proportions being just right for allowing placement within any living environment – or as we say lagom, not too much not too little, everything in balance, proportion, and harmony.

System Building

With the 15 Series, we offer a carefully considered array of models in order to allow for the best selection to fit any of your system needs. For example, the ultimate 15 Series system might be the DD15 CD transport, SC15 Prisma preamplifier and network player, I15 analog integrated amplifier, and R15 MM/MC phono preamplifier, allowing for the best performance, analog or digital, with the greatest number of connection options. However, there may be no need for additional digital inputs, MC phono preamplification may not be requirement, or simply to address budget or size considerations, a system composed of CD15 Prisma CD and network player with an I15 MM integrated amplifier with MM15 MM phono module installed could be assembled. This compact and reasonably priced system provides multiple analog source playback, including vinyl disc, as well as digital disc, stored or streamed media playback, with remarkable power, control, and connection flexibility.

    I15 MM & CD15 Prisma: Primare I15 and CD15 Prisma – a wonderful duo

    “We have experienced the Primare I15 and CD15 Prisma as a wonderful duo. We praise the balance that the manufacturer has managed to find in construction, optics and performance… The Prisma App is one of the best streaming apps on the market and soon all streaming Prisma products will even be ROON certified. When we weigh everything up, this Primare 15 Series reviewed by us is hard to beat. The sound quality is of an amazingly high level and the sound character particularly appeals to us.”

    R15, SC15, I15 MM, CD15 Prisma: The Swedish Approach

    “The 15 Series includes after all, relatively many models, so that anyone can build a system which suits their needs… And that fits in perfectly with Primare’s focus on ‘lagom’ (read: exactly what is needed), which is the Swedish approach.”

    CD15 Prisma: Primare CD15 Prisma! Scandinavian Jewelry.

    “After all, Primare’s CD Player is more than just a CD Player. It is aimed at friends who, while demanding a very good solution for their CD library, are also interested in the convenience of wireless playback and streaming services. Being a package of elegant, minimalist look with correspondingly elegant musical presence but at the same time offering many possibilities, the CD15 is a remarkable proposal for any living room.”

    I15 MM + CD15 Prisma: A Delightful Duo

    “We have experienced the Primare I15 and CD15 Prisma as one blissful duo together. We praise the balance that the manufacturer has been able to achieve in construction, optics and performance… New from the box, we immediately fall for the warm-neutral sound signature and the detailed sound stage of the I15… The CD15 Prisma is just about everything that could be expected from of a modern digital player… the price-performance ratio is unsurpassed.”
