    The Lyra-1 audio interface offers Prism Sound performance at its most affordable ever. It is 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. The Lyra-1 is based on the new ARM Cortex-based processor design which offers class-compliant USB and Ethernet AVB interfacing, plus DSP and local mixing capacity beyond that of the present Orpheus platform.

    No-compromise, full Prism Sound audio quality
    Class compliant (UAC2) USB interface
    ASIO drivers for Windows (32 and 64bit)
