PrimaLuna at the Manila Hifi show 2022!

Recently, our PrimaLuna distributor in the Philippines attended the Manila Hifi Show 2022! From Mr Lars Chua we received the following message!

“Hi Herman!

We have just concluded our Manila Hifi show. The number of guests’ turn-out was very, very good, and my two rooms were packed most of the time.

In the first room, my trusted old Magnepan 3.3s were easily driven by PrimaLuna DiaLogue HPs. This small room was filled with fast planar magnetic 30Hz bass.

The second, bigger room had the old Infinity driven by the latest all EVO amplifications.

In both rooms, the PL EVO 100 Tube DAC was fantastic. This DAC made it easier for us to amaze the guests with digital music.

Just the same, my analog gear sounded fantastic also in both rooms.

In a third room, The Cebu audio Room 507, they had the EVO 300 Floyd Hybrid driving KLH threeways. The combo sounded lovely.

All I can say is our rooms had the best sound with the most powerful but controlled bass. The adjacent rooms had to close their doors :-).

Other exhibitors at the Manila Show were Gryphon and the latest Goldmund. I have attached pictures of our setup in the two rooms.

All the best!

New Review! PrimaLuna EVO 300 Hybrid Integrated Amplifier by Michael Lavorgna of Twittering Machines!

Is Elon Musk entering the hifi ”underground“ with his TWITTERING MACHINES? No, not Elon Musk. He was too late. But …

A while ago, Michael Lavorgna of Twittering Machines, famous for his opinions on Integratedz amps, announced the following on his website: 

“My hifi underground, yours may be a different one, spoke with a unified voice about the PrimaLuna EVO 300—“You have to hear this!”

On this comment, he contacted Upscale Audio in the USA to ask whether it was possible to put the PrimaLuna EVO 300 Hybrid through its paces. And after listening to the EVO 300 Hybrid Integrated at length, Michael Lavorgna concluded as follows:

“Delicacy, detail, and power, from a whisper to a scream. To my mind this is what an integrated amplifier needs to deliver and the PrimaLuna EVO 300 proved to be a heavyweight champ. What’s more, the EVO 300 operates from a place of crystalline clarity with a rich timbral voice, a real marriage of strengths made in hifi heaven. Add in iron-fisted control and you’ve got one helluva highly recommended integrated amplifier from me and my hifi underground. Bravo!”

As you will understand, we are delighted with this statement about our PrimaLuna EVO 300 Hybrid Integrated Amplifier. The entire review is NOW online and available to read at the website of Twittering Machines:

We want to thank Mr. Michael Lavorgna of Twittering Machines (ánd his hifi underground contact). Also, we would like to thank Upscale Audio for making the review possible.

Owner Review: PrimaLuna EVO 100 Tube Preamplifier

“This was my first time ever listening to a tube preamplifier and my intro into tube amplification. Growing up in the 70’s my parents had solid state all in one systems that we listened to for playing music. I have truly enjoyed listening to my new EVO 100 Pre, it has taken out the harshness from my solid state power amplifier while playing hard rock and heavy metal. Absolutely love it! It is persuading me to go all tube for my power amplifier as well. Both the PrimaLuna and Upscale Audio websites have explained and taught me alot about tube amplification. I sincerely appreciate the resources on those websites. The YouTube videos featuring Kevin from Upscale Audio are fantastic! Very inspiring, insightful and instructional for learning all about tube audio. Thank you Kevin for taking the time to make them! Your passion and joy displayed in those videos is why I bought the PrimaLuna EVO 100 Preamplifier. Looking forward to upgrading my power amplifier soon to match the wonderful sound the EVO 100 has provided. Thank you for having such well made and great sounding audio gear!” John

Thank you John for your support! Highly appreciated.

Owner Review: PrimaLuna EVO 100 Tube Integrated Amplifier!

The Team of Upscale Audio in the USA received a very nice message from Kenneth about his PrimaLuna EVO 100 Tube Integrated Amplifier.

“The most incredible component in my system, I had some good solid state amps before with a tube preamp front end that had me happy, but I had eyed the PrimaLuna for quite a few years. Finally purchased thanks to expert advice from Chris at Upscale and the improvement to my system is just magical. It wasn’t subtle, it was dramatic. All the holographic presence and soundstage I read about I now experience for myself. Chris was zero pressure, just all knowledge and help to this rather novice audio enthusiast. Thank you Chris, thank you Kevin and all your staff. LOVE my PrimaLuna and only thing I can imagine replacing it with is a higher-end PrimaLuna!”

Thank you very much Kenneth for your support and kind words! Highly appreciated!
