Primare will release a revised version of its network player, the NP5 Prisma MK2, this summer.

The Swedish audio specialist says the development of the new model was necessitated primarily by the AKM chip factory fire. This resulted in a long-term disruption of the supply of the re-clocking chip at the heart of the NP5 Prisma design, which allowed for the selection of output sampling frequencies.

Consequently, Primare turned to another chip supplier and redesigned the circuit to maintain the performance of the original NP5 Prisma. One benefit of the change was support for MQA, not possible with the original chip.

Other features and functionality remain the same, with Spotify HiFi and Tidal Connect scheduled to join the extensive list of connection and control features already available, including AirPlay 2, Bluetooth, Chromecast built-in and Roon Ready compliance.

The NP5 Prisma MK2 is available this August, from Karma-AV, priced at £550.
