Primare has announced the launch of new Prisma applications and automatic OTA (Over-The-Air) firmware update, effectively providing a new build of the Prisma network player platform, eliminating past patches and unnecessary coding to increase control, connection speed and stability, while adding new features and functions to improve overall performance.

This 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.
