Prism Lyra-2 Stereo

The Prism Lyra-2 is a Stereo USB2 Recording interface that features uncompromising pursuit of quality does mean that its products are not the cheapest, however, so it has tended to be found only in the upper echelons of recording. The Lyra range is its most affordable yet but it uses much of the technology of its bigger and more expensive siblings.

The Lyra is rugged and beautifully built. The front panel sports two instrument inputs, a metering section, an assignable level control and a headphone output with dedicated level control. On the back are input XLRs for microphones, two line input 1/4-inch TRS jacks and four 1/4-inch TRS outputs.
