Primare NP5 Prisma MK2
Best Product, Awarded by HiFi Audio Group
“Primare’s NP5 Prisma MK2 makes it easy to introduce streaming capabilities to any outboard DAC or other component with a digital input/DAC. This well-priced device is based on the multiroom audio platform the Swedish brand utilises in even its most expensive hi-fi components, meaning there’s slick control via the dedicated Prisma app, playback from local USB and networked storage, and streaming over Spotify Connect, AirPlay 2, Bluetooth, Chromecast and Roon.”

Modularity and System Building
We feel it is essential to offer modularity whenever possible in order to have just the right features, both now and for the future. Modular design is featured in the I25 and I35 integrated amplifiers, as well as the PRE35 preamplifier, all of which can be updated with DAC and Prisma modules, as well as the CD35 CD player that can have the Prisma module added, either at the time of purchase or at a later date. As a result, we are able to offer a carefully considered array of models and configurations in order to allow for device selection that best fits any system need. And while not strictly modular, the NP5 Prisma MK2 is in effect a module for adding Prisma network music player capability to any system that has a digital input.
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 and elegant, with approachable and easy to understand functionality.
An example of this is the idea of being inconspicuous, of not drawing undue attention, which is inherent in the physical design of the NP5 Prisma MK2, allowing it to be tucked away within a system without being noticed – or as we say lagom, not too much not too little, everything in balance, proportion, and harmony.
