So I have to connect the Amiga Paula outputs to the inputs of the Prisma and then the Prisma outputs to my HiFi?
So then it's a pass through just to use the same Audio equipment with just a pair of cables.

You should include with the Prisma when it's available for sale a couple of male RCA adapters (for the female RCA Amiga Paula output) to female 3.5 mono jack plus the cable with dual male mono jacks in both sides.

This card is an audio stream decoder, not a sound card, so I think it's very unlikely that it will support AHI at all. Would be a million times more useful than decoding MP3s on an Amiga though...

You are right, but the headline does say 'sound card' so perhaps that is a bit misleading as people expect it to do stuff it is not meant to.

The MAS player uses AHI and it isn't a sound car either. Edit: Sorry, no, I was wrong.

In fact it can also use MHI.

Even A-EON's own Press Release said "Sound Card" ;-)I

it was pointed out for a considerable number of times, that it is not a soundcard but a streaming audio decoder and that advertising it as a sound card is misleading. look up this very thread. i dont even understand why they insist on this, even though it doesnt look like the product is going to be delivered any soon and those, who nevertheless intend to buy it, would probably do, no matter what it is.

I have zero interest in this card, but I find it amusing that the official press release calls it a sound card and there's a zillion page thread with ppl arguing about what it actually is or isnt.

Im sure it was metioned before. Obviously a typo.
Should have been corrected by now though.

To be fair, the official Prisma page looks like this:
http://www.a-eon.com/?page=prisma
(At the time of writing: it simply says "product page coming soon".. No reference to the previous press release.

The old press release was a PDF and I guess they didn't want to edit it afterwards as it was already spread all over Internet. ..

You need a special AmigaAMP beta for the Prisma. Contact the author for it.

Oh yes, you are true. Thank you.

AmigaAMP development continues. I'm currently working on porting version 3 to AmigaOS 3.9 so that classic users can benefit from all the new features and bug fixes in this version (and probably from some new bugs introduced during porting as well :-)).

The new version 3 OS 3.9 build will support sending not only MP2/MP3 but also other compressed files through MHI so that you can play them on the new Prisma Megamix soundcard. This is currently in closed beta test phase.

Ummm... The MAS player uses MHI, yes, but it absolutely does not use AHI. Why would it?

As for whether it's a soundcard or not, it may be a little misleading because people equate soundcard with an AHI-compatible output device. However, it does output sound from software sources on the computer so I would definitely consider it a soundcard - just one with a particular purpose (in this case for decoding audio). There have been other cases of this in the past too - plenty of MIDI bank hardware and the likes have been advertised as sound cards, once they have their own audio output ability.

Bottom line, all that's needed is to be clear about what *type* of soundcard it is. Personally I've never had any doubts about this, but maybe others less familiar with the terminology might be confused.

They've told me they are currently working on updated drivers. Zorro seems to be sorted now and clockport driver is now being worked on.
