Primare NP5 Prisma MK2 set for release this summer

Primare has announced a revised version of its popular NP5 Prisma network player, scheduled for release in August this year.

The NP5 Prisma MK2 has been developed in response to the AKM chip factory fire, which has caused long-term disruption to the supply of the critical re-clocking chip at the heart of the NP5 Prisma design that allowed for the selection of output sampling frequencies.

To ensure it can continue supplying the model with as little disruption as possible, the company has sourced a readily available chip and redesigned the circuit to maintain the performance of the original NP5 Prisma while allowing for MQA passthrough, which was not possible with the original chip.

The MK2 model will have all the same features and functions, with Spotify HiFi and Tidal Connect expected to join the list this summer of connection and control features already available, which include AirPlay 2, Bluetooth, Chromecast built-in, Roon Ready, amongst many more.

The NP5 Prisma MK2 will be available in August 2021 priced at £550.
