“My first tube amp and I’m amazed at how great it sounds. It replaced a 30-year-old Linn integrated amp. It sounds very good but compared to the PrimaLuna it is like night and day. The PrimaLuna sounds impressive and detailed. Kevin helped me choose the power amp. He is very knowledgeable and helpful. I’ll be going back to complete my new system.”
The team of Upscale Audio received a very nice review from Skip Gordon about his PrimaLuna EVO 400 Tube Preamplifier.
I have had a keen interest in high end audio for over 40 years. I have owned many high quality solid state product but I never have owned a vacuum tube product until recently. I had Klipsch RF 7III speakers and two REL S/5 SHO subs that were powered by Anthem STR separates with a Thorens TD 146 table when I began my adventure into the vacuum tube world. I had always thought about trying a moving coil cartridge and upgrading my table so I bought the EAT C Sharp table and it comes with their MC J No 5 cartridge. The improvement was good but I wanted more. EAT has a vacuum tube phono preamp so I though ok give it a try. Now I had the EAT table, phono preamp + their LPS (Linear Power Supply). Again this was another set up. The store I bought the EAT gear also sold PrimaLuna and after reading and hearing so much about the sound of PrimaLuna I decided to give them a try. The EVO 400 Preamp came first and then the first EVO 400 power amp and then the second. The improvement cannot be described. I truly have been blown away. The clarity and dimensional character to the sound I have now is remarkable. The dynamics are beyond my highest expectations. Anyone that is interested in having the best listening experience possible should own PrimaLuna. It is just that simple. You cannot go wrong.
