Primare Prisma update


Primare have announced the launch of new Prisma applications and automatic OTA (Over-The-Air) firmware update, effectively providing a new build of the Prisma network player platform, eliminating past patches and unnecessary coding to increase control, connection speed and stability. This represents a significant step in the ongoing evolution of the Prisma platform in advance of the pending Roon Ready update, first for the NP5 Prisma. network player, and shortly thereafter for all Prisma models.

Apple and Android Prisma applications are now in a single app for both phone, in portrait orientation, and tablet, in landscape orientation. Both new apps are live in the relevant app stores. OTA Update highlights include:

All Prisma models
AirPlay 2 – all Prisma models are now AirPlay 2 enabled
Heartbeat function – this feature improves discovery, as well as active network connection and communication between the Prisma device and application
WiFi setup – WiFi setup can now be done using three options:  Android – from the initial Discovery page in Prisma application; iOS – using AirPlay, from WiFi Settings menu; Google Home – setup with Google Home and a Chromecast account is required to use Chromecast built-in related applications and features

NP5 network player
RS232 Link functionality improvements
Added Digital output setting options: Native – native playback, with selectable maximum sampling rate pass-through options of 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4 or 192kHz
Fixed – selectable up-sampling/down-sampling to 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4 or 192kHz

Bug Fixes
Elimination of pop noises while playing high resolution files over Airplay and Chromecast
DLNA/UPNP protocol improvements for improved playback performance across all platforms (including solving playback issues with Audirvana and Primephonic)
