Inside the I15 Prisma's petite case you'll find a smooth-sounding DAC and a cool-running Class D amplifier with surprising poise and punch.

In Primare's I15 family of integrated amplifiers, the I15 Prisma is the brainy one. Think of it as a one-box solution for most people's digital music needs. You can connect one analog and multiple digital music sources, or choose from an array of wireless streaming options.

This svelte 3/4-size component includes a nice remote, but the best way to navigate your music options is with the clean, intuitive Prisma app, available for both iOS® and Android™ devices.

Primare's Class D amp sounds... classy

The amplifier section of the I15 Prisma delivers 60 watts per channel into 8 ohms, and 100 watts per channel into 4 ohms. It's rated conservatively — when you connect it to your speakers, you'll swear the actual power output is higher.

Primare has been refining their Class D technology over the past ten years, and reviewers describe the sound of their latest amps as unfailingly smooth and natural.

The brilliant Prisma network player

Prisma is actually a bundle of technologies that provides a broad range of network music player features and functionality. It makes it easy to discover, explore, and share high-performance music playback, whether the source is stored or streamed, wired or wireless. Whether you're listening to Spotify or files from your NAS drive, the Prisma control app provides total system management from your mobile device.

The I15 Prisma also features Chromecast built-in, a streaming portal that lets you connect directly to hundreds of streaming applications. Chromecast built-in streams audio directly from the cloud, so you get the highest sound quality. It's even possible to enjoy high-res music (up to 24-bit/96kHz) from services like TIDAL and Qobuz. The I15 Prisma is also Roon Ready (firmware update required).

The built-in high-performance 32-bit AKM DAC presents virtually any digital music source with a level of clarity and detail you may not have experienced before.

Stylish sound from Scandinavia

Founded in Sweden in the mid '80s, Primare relies on a talented team of designers to create its innovative high-end audio components. Among audiophiles, their equipment is admired both for its exceptional sound quality and its elegant appearance.
