NP5 Prisma MK2 – Stereo+ awards it 5 Stars – Highly Recommended!
“Instead of pushing a DAC and an analog output section into the device as most others have done, absolutely all the money has gone to make as good a streamer as possible, and it immediately sounds like they have succeeded in delivering a product with pleasant sound quality for the price. For no matter how strange it sounds, there is a difference between streamers even if they only send zeros and ones on to the DAC. Why does NP5 sound more distinct and more precise than a Bluesound Node in the latest version, and why does it sound like Sonos’ equivalent device is both grey and matte compared to the NP5, even though they send out a digital signal?
Conclusion: With the NP5 Prisma MK2, Primare has created a smart and user-friendly streamer. Just what a budget HIFI enthusiast needs.”
5 Stars – Highly recommended!
