New Roon Ready Certifications for Primare Networking Components

Swedish company Primare announces that 15 Prisma integrated amplifiers (both original version and MK2 version), 25 Prisma and 35 Prisma have received Roon Ready certification from Roon Labs. Roon Ready functionality will become available on these models with a system firmware update. The new firmware version dated January 23, 2023 will be automatically downloaded and installed on any Internet-connected integrated amplifier I15 Prisma, I25 Prisma and I35 Prisma.

In order to make sure that the software version is up to date, you need to go to the Prisma branded application to the “Settings / Information / System Information” tab and check the firmware versions on the connected device:

 I15 Prisma: MCU v2.74 / streaming v15376

 I25 Prisma: MCU v2.62 / streaming v15376

 I35 Prisma: MCU v3.48 / streaming v15376

If the update does not happen automatically, it is recommended to start it manually by selecting “Reboot” in the settings menu or turn off and then turn on the power of the device using the switch on the rear panel. Restarting will force the Prisma to perform a full system check, including checking for new firmware updates, which will be installed automatically. Restarting and updating the software can take up to ten minutes – during this time the device can not be used. If for some reason the restart process is interrupted, you need to restart the device again.

When using the new firmware, an error in Bluetooth operation may occur, leading to loss of connection after the device is rebooted. To re-establish the connection, it is recommended to enable playback via Chromecast, Spotify Connect, Roon Ready or AirPlay. The next software update will fix this error.

The SC15 Prisma and PRE35 Prisma will soon be Roon Ready, followed by the CD15 Prisma and CD35 Prisma, and then the SP25 Prisma and SPA25 Prisma.

Roon is a multi-room networked audio platform that fully meets the high audiophile standards with its versatility. Roon has features such as bit-perfect playback and high resolution support for DSD and PCM formats.

With updated firmware, Prisma has full control over RAAT (Roon Advanced Audio Transport), allowing full use of Roon’s sophisticated software to control digital music playback.

The use of Roon makes the process of listening to music modern, corresponding to the possibilities of the 21st century. Artist photos, related data, biographies, reviews, lyrics, tour dates, and composers are automatically pulled up when a track is played, and then linked to create a digital magazine of the music collection with the ability to view various information and advanced search.

Roon finds all available links between the audio files of the music collection and millions of tracks on TIDAL and Qobuz, which allows, starting from familiar music, to discover completely new music – far beyond the limits of a personal collection.
