Only PrimaLuna could come up with an EL34 push pull ultralinear amplifier and price such a musical accomplishment under 1800 euros. With the Classic,the vast experience acquired by this manufacturer is reflected in the rigorous design, in the production quality and in the great reliability. If you think this is too much praise, then listen to this amplifier in a double blind test against other tube or solid states amplifiers in this price range with exactly the same system configuration (including cables).
The differences will be immediately apparent. You don’t need to be a great expert on comparative listening tests. The overall clarity and the spontaneity of the musical events will impose themselves on you with the ProLogue Classic when compared with other systems, not only in this price category but also with more expensive units. Who would now dare to say that you need to go bust in order to have access tothe very essence of musical expressivity?

Again a very enthousiastic review from the French magazine Stereo Prestige & Image. The pleasure of listening and reviewing is very clear in this article. For me it is also a pleasure to feel the enthousiasme, the pleasure for music and in this case for the PrimaLuna Classic Integrated Amplifier. It is indeed a joy to hear this amp sing together with a nice pair of speakers. Last week I “met” the amp in a system with small ProAc loudspeakers and one thing was for sure: the sound was not small at all. It was like listening to much larger speakers while the music was coming from a large stage and certainly not from the speakers. It was vivid, it was dynamic, sweet and natural. Difficult to neglect that kind of “art of sound”… Hope a lot of people still can discover such experience after they have laid off their MP3 headphones ….
