Primare has announced a significant Prisma automatic Over-The-Air firmware update, effectively delivering a new build of the Prisma network player platform, adding new features and functions, in the process eliminating previous patches and unnecessary coding.

The Scandinavian Hi-Fi specialist says the firmware update 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, and shortly thereafter for all Prisma models.’

Apple (1.3.4(62)) and Android (1.3.8.8) Prisma applications are now in a single app for both phone, in portrait orientation, and tablet, in landscape orientation. New apps are live in Google’s Play Store and Apple’s App Store.

These include AirPlay 2 coming to all Prisma models ; a ‘Heartbeat’ function which improves discovery, as well as active network connection and communication between the Prisma device and application, and more Wi-Fi setup options. There’s also now a choice of Android, from the initial Discovery page in Prisma application; iOS – using AirPlay, from WIFI Settings menu and Google Home.

The NP5 network player gets RS232 Link functionality improvements and additional digital output options: native playback, with selectable maximum sampling rate pass-through options of 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4 or 192kHz, and fixed, selectable up-sampling/down-sampling to 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4 or 192kHz

Bug fixes include the elimination of pop noises while playing high resolution files over Airplay and Chromecast, and DLNA/UPNP protocol improvements for improved playback performance across all platforms (this resolves playback issues with Audirvana and Primephonic).
