Introducing the I15 Prisma

Product Features

  • Stream hundreds of music services using familiar apps and devices, including high resolution platforms like Qobuz, Spotify, and Tidal HiFi
  • Complete control of network connected hard drives using the Prisma application
  • Advanced input, output and control options to satisfy virtually any system needs, including voice control and Roon media management software
  • Powerful amplification and sophisticated DAC sections deliver every detail and nuance with power and precise control

Technology

Input Section
Carefully crafted input circuitry utilises relays for input switching providing better isolation and sound than found in more conventional CMOS (Complementary metal– oxide–semiconductor) switches, and improved 2 x 4 channel balanced mode volume control IC selected for optimal channel balance and low listening level performance.

Amplification
The I15 Prisma employs a specially made Hypex UCD102 amplifier module, fed by our custom heavy duty switch mode power supply and carefully crafted analogue input stage, provides a dynamic and detailed sound. The large scale mass production of this module allows us to provide the balanced and coherent sound for which Primare has become known at a more reasonable price than can be achieved with our limited production UFPD 2 amplifier module technology found in the larger I25 and I35, and A35.2 amplifiers.

Digital to Analogue Conversion (DAC)
In order to allow for playback of virtually any digital source with absolute accuracy and musicality a high performance 32-bit stereo ESS ES9028Q2M reference DAC chipset was selected for the I15 Prisma MK2, which uses the critically acclaimed ESS patented 32-bit HyperStream technology capable of delivering a DNR of 129dB and THD+N of -120db S/N, while supporting up to 384kHz PCM and 256/11.2MHz DSD; performance levels that will satisfy the most demanding system needs and audio enthusiast.

In Review

“Compact and Powerful: The dimensions of the I15 say nothing about the performance, because the amplifier combines power and refinement and by the broad support of modern hi-res audio formats you can also enjoy the best quality music. The I15 Prisma indeed delivers, as Primare has already thought up, performance that matches the Swedish expression ‘LAGOM’. This is just right. Especially when you look at the price.”

Prisma – Network Player And Multi-Room Technology

The Prisma technology bundle was created to allow everyone in the household to explore, discover, and share the deeply satisfying experience of high-performance music playback, providing multi-room/multi-zone connectivity and control of stored and streamed media, whether wired or wireless, all managed from mobile devices with familiar streaming apps and a dedicated system control app.

In addition to control of network connected hard drives using the Prisma application, Prisma includes AirPlay 2, Bluetooth®, Roon Ready, Spotify Connect®, and Chromecast built-in, a unique streaming portal allowing effortless direct connection to hundreds of streaming applications and services, including voice control, for the best possible performance and user experience.

Amplifier and DAC Technology

The amplification utilises a class leading Hypex all analogue output stage providing 60 watts of power into an 8-ohm and 100 watts into a 4-ohm load for amazing drive and control of virtually any speaker, completely belying the amplifier’s compact size. The digital to analogue conversion stage is equally impressive, capable of processing music files with resolution up to PCM 384kHz and DSD 256 capabilities.

The look and feel of Scandinavia

Primare 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, elegant designs, with approachable and easy to understand functionality.

An example of this is the compact, essentially three-quarter sized, of the 15 series, cabinets creating the sense of perfect proportions being just right for allowing placement within any living environment – or as we say lagom, not too much not too little, everything in balance, proportion, and harmony.

System Building

With the 15 Series, Primare offer a carefully considered array of models in order to allow for the best selection to fit any of your system needs. For example, the ultimate 15 Series system might be the DD15 CD transport, SC15 Prisma preamplifier and network player, I15 analog integrated amplifier, and R15 MM/MC phono preamplifier, allowing for the best performance, analog or digital, with the greatest number of connection options.

However, there may be no need for additional digital inputs, MC phono pre amplification may not be requirement, or simply to address budget or size considerations, a system composed of CD15 Prisma CD and network player with an I15 MM integrated amplifier with MM15 MM phono module installed could be assembled.

This compact and reasonably priced system provides multiple analog source playback, including vinyl disc, as well as digital disc, stored or streamed media playback, with remarkable power, control, and connection flexibility.
