Prism Sound Lyra USB Audio Interface
If you’re working in music industry at a pro level, you certainly know about Prism Sound, manufacturer of high end audio products.
Unfortunately, Prism Sound products kept out of reach for many semi-pro or small budget studios due to their pricing, those pricing are totally justified regarding how great their equipment sound, no debate here…
But Lyra is a game changer and place itself in a market pointed towards bands or solo musicians who really care about sound quality without having to fully break the bank.
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.
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.
No-compromise, full Prism Sound audio quality
Lyra makes no compromises on audio quality. It is the result of years of research and development into digital audio conversion and extensive dialogue with Prism Sound’s customers.
The Lyra design brief was: Prism Sound quality at an even more accessible price point. Lyra has the same no-compromise analogue front and back ends as its brother Orpheus, with the same fully-balanced-throughout architecture and the same isolation barriers protecting the analogue from digital and computer interference.
