PrimaLuna Story continues ……


Today we received a nice story from Chris from the UK. Although we have never really “met” Chris, he is loyally traceable in our email archives as he has been in contact with us since he started with his very first PrimaLuna steps. About what to do next, about registering the products he owned, getting Littelfuse fuses to replace the standard fuses etc etc.

As said, we never met Chris, but we do “know” him. Read his today’s story and start to know Chris as well.

PrimaLuna Story continues ……

Ten years ago I bought a pair of ProLogue 7 monoblocs. I was using an Audionet preamp and Tannoy Stirling SE speakers.  That was the beginning of an odyssey which has continued to this day.

When the opportunity arose I bought a ProLogue 3 preamp to replace the Audionet and was so happy with this combination for many years.  Faultless performance, just one tube failure (a KT88) and replaced. I later put 8 Svetlana winged C 6550s in the amps.

Early in 2018 I started looking to upgrade and bought a new DiaLogue Premium Preamplifier and was amazed!  I had no trouble selling my ProLogue 3 to part fund the upgrade.

Then the thought came of changing the poweramps and, after listening to advice from PrimaLuna, decided not to get a DiaLogue Premium Stereo Power, but to get 2 and run them in mono!  The ProLogue 7s in part-exchange helped in this.

So now I have the DiaLogue Premium Pre/Power mono combination, and what a revelation! Forget the incredible bass, the clear and sweet highs, the marvellous midrange, etc. etc. the sheer musicality of the amplifiers is stunning. Enjoyable is an understatement. I just can’t wait each day to play music!

I still use my Audio Research cd5 along with Raspberry pi and hard drive for hi-res music into a Wyred4Sound dac2v2, and, of course, the fabulous Tannoys with supertweeters. The speakers are very efficient, so I don’t feel the need for the HP versions of the poweramps.

In ten years, just one tube failure and everything else faultless!

Now, no hassle amplifiers with the adaptive autobias, and 4in1 with the choice of EL34 or KT88 bias and triode or ultralinear, what more could I wish for?

Thank you PrimaLuna for the sheer joy your amplifiers have given me, and continue to give.

Chris

“The PrimaLuna monoblocks blew him away.”


The message below is shared on Facebook by Mr. Paul Quilter, distributor of PrimaLuna in New Zealand, PQ Imports.

I had a call from a dealer this morning. He had just taken delivery of a pair of Prima Luna Dialogue HP power amps and had been up till 2am listening to “just one more disc” – you know how it goes. He was marveling at the space and completely new aural experience, even on well-known discs. He had previously been listening to the HP Integrated. He was pretty impressed with that model, but the monoblocks blew him away.
Then I opened an email with the latest Prima Luna Newsletter and found this mentioned…

The Absolute Sound 2019 High-End Audio Buyer’s Guide.


The Absolute Sound’s 2019 High – End Audio Buyers’ Guide is now available through the website of The Absolute Sound magazine.

We are proud that THREE PrimaLuna amplifiers are listed in the 2019 High – End Buyers’ Guide.

PrimaLuna DiaLogue Premium HP Poweramplifier

For someone looking to indulge in the tube experience, with most of the drawbacks superbly minimized, GW cannot recommend the 70Wpc (40Wpc in triode) PrimaLuna DiaLogue Premium HP highly enough. It offers creative and thoughtful design, exceptional build-quality, first-rate parts and assembly, tremendous attention to detail, and elegant look and feel—and its sonic performance is clearly well above its reasonable asking price. (269)

PrimaLuna ProLogue Premium Integrated Amplifier

For PrimaLuna, the Premium Series is the tweener line, geared to bridge the gap between the performance/feature set of the entry-level ProLogue Series and that of the more advanced and costlier DiaLogue Series. Sonically, the 35Wpc ProLogue Premium does not have the rosy, euphonic colorations of traditional triode or SET tube varietals. True, there is a glimmer of romance in its palette, but tonally it’s a thoroughly contemporary tube amp that walks a mostly neutral line, yet still reproduces the lowest-level details of music with an almost tender delicacy and resolution that combine the best of the valve and solid-state worlds. There’s an inner light to images, plus a huge soundstage and cavernous dimensionality. The ProLogue Premium places the emphasis on ingredients that often elude more commonplace electronics—the liveliness and fluidity of the musical event. (212)

PrimaLuna DiaLogue Premium Integrated Amplifier

PrimaLuna DiaLogue Premium $3399 The Premium version of the DiaLogue incorporates select parts such as an ALPS volume control, Takman resistors, and SCR tin-foil coupling capacitors in critical signal-path locations. The front end is now all 12AU7-based. The amp ships with EL34 pentodes, but KT88 and even KT120 beam power tubes may be substituted, which nudges power output to 42Wpc. DO opines that the KT120 produces the best sonics in either ultra-linear or triode modes. Operation of the KT120 in triode mode is a potent option that can work miracles with some speaker loads, though output power is halved. You can hardly do any better when it comes to user-friendliness and operational flexibility. It is a tube roller’s delight as it dispenses with the bother of having to deal with biasing issues.

Recommended Component 2018: PrimaLuna ProLogue Premium Preamplifier and Poweramplifier


Stereophile magazine has published their latest “Recommended Component” list.

We are happy and proud that our PrimaLuna ProLogue Premium Preamplifier & ProLogue Premium Poweramplifier are listed in their “Recommended Component” list.

Herb Reichert of Stereophile concluded after his review about the ProLogue Premium Preamplifier the following:

“I’ve listened to the PrimaLuna ProLogue Premium preamplifier at great length and carefully studied its construction. I’ve installed the review sample in my system many times and removed it just as often—it’s been banged about. So I can say, without doubt, that it’s built to last and is musically effective. Its combination of beguiling transparency and dynamic authority reproduces complex music and recordings with ease and élan. In even a very expensive system, it will not set limits on musical enjoyment. As I concluded my review of PrimaLuna’s ProLogue Premium power amp: Class A sound at a Class C price.”

Herb Reichert also reviewed our PrimaLuna ProLogue Premium Poweramplifier and he concluded the following:

“Equally obvious was how clearly and powerfully the ProLogue Premium reproduced bass… High frequencies had a captivating purity.”

“PrimaLuna’s ProLogue Premium has become my new reference for low-power, high-value amplification. Class A sound at a Class C price.”
