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 (Maybe the Wiki is outdated?)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.

Don't believe any price until you hear from an official source.
Any rumors can be based on wild speculation 😀

How do you figure? Its very obvious that the software was the big challenge in this project, not building the hardware.

Excellent news! I might consider one for my A1200 jukebox to replace the MAS player it currently uses, especially with the support for more formats.

Software-wise, MHI support is great, but is there a similar interface for non-MPEG formats?

Official sell page maybe should say something about installation in A1200 desktop like the Wiki does?
You know, to *not* scare off A1200 desktop owners (who probably outnumber 1200T owners by 20:1)
thus maybe helping sales.. ;-)

If I've installed a RapidRoad USB in the Amiga 1200 clockport, what can I do? Do I need a clockport expander?
