PRIMARE SC15 Prisma Preamplifier and Network Audio Player
PRIMARE SC15 Prisma
SC15 Prisma is a full-featured network player and DAC, incorporating pre-amplifier functionality and WiSA high resolution wireless speaker connection technology.
SC15 Prisma continues a Primare tradition of delivering astonishing performance from compact and elegant devices for easy installation into virtually any living environment, and with the three-quarter-sized cabinet of SC15 Prisma, even greater possibilities open up for providing the highest quality music performance and access to any and every room in the house.
SC15 Prisma is a full-featured system control and network player, providing digital to analog conversion with up to PCM 384kHz and DSD 128 capabilities, as well as complete digital media access and system management by way of the Prisma connectivity and control technology.
With selectable fixed or variable output, SC15 Prisma can serve as an advanced network player for any system in fixed mode, or connected directly to a pair of powered speakers for a compact high performance stereo system in variable.
SC15 Prisma also includes WiSA high resolution wireless speaker connectivity with WiSA enabled high performance powered loudspeakers, offering an additional output option for this most versatile performer.
Prisma – Network and Multiroom Technology
Prisma is a bundle of technologies that provide the broadest range of network music player features and functionality. Essentially created to be a streamer that would allow everyone, and everywhere, in the household to explore, discover, and share the deeply satisfying experience of high-performance music playback – Prisma provides multi-room/multi-zone connectivity and control of stored and streamed media, whether wired or wireless, all managed from mobile devices through the dedicated Prisma system control app.
In addition to AirPlay 2, Bluetooth®, Roon Ready*, and Spotify Connect®, Prisma features 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.
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, 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.
With the 15 Series, we 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 preamplification 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.
