Prism Sound Music and Recording products, the ADA-8XR and Orpheus are discussed in the August 2018 issue of Headliner Magazine.
Cambridge, UK: August 15th 2018: The August 2018 issue of Headliner Magazine contains two articles which relate the benefits of using Prism Sound's Music and Recording products.
The Prism Sound ADA-8XR used Backstage with Del Amitri
Paul Watson's article "Backstage with Del Amitri" explains why the tour's System Tech Steve Norman, chose to use the ADA-8XR analogue to digital converter.
...With Dave Kay opting for analogue at FOH, to allow him to stay true to Del Amitri’s chunky sound, Steve Norman had to find a way to transport and distribute this analogue audio without degrading the quality of it. He looked no further than a Prism Sound converter. "Yes, it could be done in the analogue world, but it seemed to make sense to convert that into digital, so whatever you convert it to, it’s now lossless, giving you cable redundancy, and the ability to split it in a multitude of ways, or combine different inputs on top of that as well," Norman explains. "So that bit in the middle - the converter - needed to be the best we could get, and having worked with and owned Prism Sound converters myself, it was a no-brainer for me to go there." It’s a Prism Sound ADA-8XR doing the trick, which has the a jitter-free clock; that also gets the thumbs up from Norman: "And you can hear that, because the stereo width and depth you get out of the unit is massive. It’s like comparing an mp3 to a wav; it’s like you’ve peeled the grills off the speakers, in the sense that it completely opens up the sound. So through the Coda system, you hear every single bass note, and the subs aren’t just something that make a noise, there is true definition; and that’s the converter helping that along. It’s a hell of a combo!"...

The Prism Sound ADA-8XR used within FLYNTs state-of-the-art studio
Adam Protz's article "FLYNT: Cumbria Calling" discusses the studio set-up that FLYNT uses to record their "northern brewed" music and makes mention of the Prism Sound Orpheus as "without a doubt, the best thing they ever bought".
...I ask the guys about their core studio setup. "We use an iMac Pro, and record and produce in Pro Tools 12," Norman tells me. "I really enjoy using Pro Tools because of its editing capabilities and functionality. The star of the show for us, however, and without a doubt the best thing we’ve ever bought, is the Prism Sound Orpheus interface. It’s phenomenal. We had been using various interfaces before, from the MBox Pro to the Digidesign 003, but when we heard the Orpheus, it just had something special. "The top end is flawless, and the dynamic range is incredible. You hear things in mixes and recordings that you never noticed before, and the clarity almost makes you sweat! "Another major difference we also noticed was the width. Our mixes just opened up, and our space sounded like it had more depth, and a greatly improved stereo field. I find it hard to fully explain, but it’s almost like there isn’t just left and right, there’s also back and forward, and up and down... if that makes sense? You can pinpoint something in the mix, and really hear everything. That was a game changing moment for us when we got the Orpheus, and it certainly made us better at capturing sound."...
