Primare NP30 Network Music Player

Refined High Quality Phono Stage Amplification

The NP30 Network Player M30 adapts any high quality music system for audiophile streaming, internet radio and gapless audio playback, through integration with UPnP devices such as PC/Mac/NAS iPod®, iPad®, iPhone® or USB thumb drive. It’s a genuine 24/192 DAC including 3x optical, 1x SP/DIF, USB-A, USB-B, WLAN, LAN inputs (incorporating an asynchronous master clock for low jitter), and XLR, RCA, Digital (192 kHz), IRout, TRIGout outputs.

Audiophile Topology:

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-balanced output 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.

Volume Control:

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 )
