Consistent with Primare design philosophy, the NP30 incorporates multiple power supplies to ensure that optimum levels of clean power reach the digital and analogue sections -a master switch mode power supply feeds a total of six analogue and three digital power supplies. To further protect the purity of the analogue output signals, digital and analogue signal paths have their own dedicated ground planes. Sound quality is preserved to the output with a fully balancedoutput stage incorporating discrete FET amplifiers. An audiophile relay-controlled MUTE circuit ensures super-quiet input selection.
24/192 USB Interface
For reliable 24/192 operation,Primare has chosen XMOS because it offers an integrated communication hub hosting the MCU. XMOS and Primare’s developers in Sweden, have collaborated to optimize XMOS firmware for better performance from Primare’s XMOS application.
The NP30 uses a SRC4392 sample rate converter in conjunction with a Burr Brown PCM1792 24/192 DAC, running continually at 24/192. Incoming data at rates other than 24/192 are up-sampled to 24/192 to ensure the optimal operation of the DAC.
Digital volume with default, fixed or variable selection is possible. The VC allows direct connection to a pair of active loudspeakers or power amplifier.
Primare Control App available for iPhone/iPad and Android.
The Primare App allows you to choose and play media (including Internet radio) at resolutions up to 24bit/192kHz from network shared music sources and storage through NP30, PRE60 and from I32 and PRE32 with installed MM30 board.
Primare App will:
Establish network connections and play from any network shared music source
Play from USB-A, (stick, iPhone etc.)
Play files up to 24bit/192 kHz resolution
Play internet radio (vTuner –http://www.vtuner.com )
Display and save playlists
Display format, bit rate and sample rate of the song playing
Provide fast forward and back navigation of the song playing
Provide volume control including default at start-up (fixed or variable on NP30) more....
Allow source selection of devices connected to inputs of the I32, PRE32, PRE60 and NP30
Allow the renaming of inputs on I32, PRE32 and PRE60 Give the I32, PRE32, PRE60 or NP30 a name on the network
Manage software updates on I32, PRE32, PRE60 and NP30
Using a standard UPnP App
Any standard UPnP application on Android or IPhone/IPadcan be used to access the streaming functionality. However, while UPnP will allow you to browse a media server with playlists, tracks, album-art and transport controls, some features are not available (USB-drive, IPod, IPad, IPhone-USB devices). Also no radio is supported with a standard UPnP App.
If a network connection is available, the NP30 can connect to a Primare server to download new firmware. The Primare App offers an auto-upgrade feature, which automatically notifies the user when an upgrade is available. Simply activate the upgrade from the App. New Firmware can also be upgraded using a USB flash memory.
For compatibility with Primare’s high-performance audio design, the Bluetooth receiver-only module supports high quality Bluetooth via aptX (android), AAC, MP3 but rather than use an integrated DAC (as employed by other Bluetooth upgrades) the output is fed to the product’s own Sample Rate Converter and up-sampled to 192kHz for optimum performance through the existing high resolution DACs. In this way Primare’s Bluetooth the MM30 provides excellent Bluetooth sound quality to the convenience of wireless Bluetooth connections.
