It won’t. The previous Prism Dream design never made it to the Lyra. Neither will this one. Migrating the flagship design to the lowest product would increase the cost of the lowest product.

This isn’t surprising. No other company does either. You aren’t going to find the Apogee Symphony SE converters in the Duet.

None, I believe. Top tier conversion in a compact box.

BTW, for those interested, I did a per channel cost for the Prism Dream ADA-128 as a Dante converter (each interface maxed on AD/DA conversion with at least one Dante interface connection.)
This was street prices pre-any "professional" discounts (US$):
Some of the top (highest to lowest; this list is much longer than shown here for our buying decisions)
  • DAD AX32/MTRX (using MTRX): $378.50/channel
  • Prism Dream ADA-128: $330.87/channel
  • Burl B16: $318.00/channel
  • Prism Titan: $294.88/channel
  • Burl B80: $251.11/channel
The Prism Dream ADA-128 is far more competitive than the old Dream 8XR and competitive in the marketplace when you consider all the other functionality.

I think at this level of 'rarefied air' it becomes a matter of taste.

That being said I still loive my B80 Digilink Mothership and am committed to this format now for the foreseeable future.

If i was to start agin the new Prism would defo get a look in at that price and in that amount of space!
