Reference Grade USB Audio interface with AD/DA conversion based on the Orpheus

Based on the Orpheus' audio path and clock circuitry, Lyra is ideal for those who don't require a large I/O count, but do demand the highest quality and most transparent AD/DA available.

Lyra cuts no corners in its design and boasts the same trusted Prism Sound convertors used on countless hit records. It's ultra-transparent characteristic means what you put into the Lyra is exactly what you get out of it.

Featuring a single class-A microphone preamp, Lyra 1 guarantees superbly clean, detailed recordings that capture a performance the way it was intended.

Lyra's analogue input channels include a switchable Prism Sound 'Overkiller' circuit. This soft-clip limiter gently absorbs transients and allows signal levels to be pushed to their limits without risk.

Prism Sound's reputation for audio excellence has been matched only by its top quality after-sales support and technical advice. The longevity of a Prism Sound product is a testament to the dedicated team behind it.
