Prism Sound Lyra 2

$2,695.00 $2,270.00

Description

The Lyra family of USB audio interfaces offers Prism Sound performance at its most affordable ever. They are based on the Orpheus audio path and clock circuitry, but in a smaller package for those who don’t need eight channels of analogue I/O. There are two models Lyra 1 and Lyra 2.

Lyra is based on an ARM Cortex processor design which offers class-compliant USB and the possibility for future Ethernet AVB interfacing, plus DSP and local mixing capacity beyond that of the present Orpheus platform.

Signal path

Analogue and digital input channels are available as inputs for your audio workstation software through the host computer’s audio driver. Similarly, analogue and digital outputs and stereo headphone outputs can be played independently.

For low-latency foldback or monitoring to headphone or main outputs, each output pair (1-2, 3-4, digital out or the headphone output) can optionally be driven from the built-in DSP mixer with an individual local mix of any selection of inputs through the controller applet. All analogue inputs are electronically balanced with automatic unbalanced operation. Analogue outputs are electronically balanced with ‘bootstrapping’, i.e. level is maintained if one leg is grounded.
