An unfortunate choice of words. We already said its not a sound card. Maybe people find it easier to call it that.

But, yea lets not nitpick.. ;-)
Anyway, I don't get the following.. The clockport version requires a A1200 Tower? (I Read it on Wiki page)
First of all, if its targeted at A1200 Tower users, why not a PCI (Mediator) version. And secondly.. card seems small, seems to me you could fit it in a regular A1200 with a proper connector / adapter to the clockport, no? (Maybe the Wiki is outdated?)
Its a mistake. The press release clearly shows the A1200 Desktop backplate. Think he ment A4000, as they had some setup for bigbox Amiga's with them.

I got a V600 too, which plays mp3s flawlessly, but for games and demos (nonRTG) I use the A1200.
If there is sufficient performance differences and features Prisma vs MAS, I might consider upgrading.
It works find here on a non expanded A1200, without any slow downs, regardless of what your doing.
Is able to play higher quality without issue, unlike mas player which can struggle in some situations.
