And a minor change in fusing. Minor as seen as a part of the DiaLogue Premium design, but major as part of the complete PrimaLuna (and Mystère) design story.
To be honest, until recently we did not really emphasize on the sound effects of fuses. Last year we started experimenting with that as we wanted to know if we could improve something without really adding too much cost to the design.
We actually found that we were using functional, but very standard slow blow fuses. No audio grade, or not even special quality. We do not want to go to the known audio-grade, audiophile fuses, but for sure we want to have good quality brand name fuses. After more time than we expected, we came up with fuses which could handle for a short moment the high switch on current and at the same time could break (and that is actually their function) if for a longer time during normal use, the current goes up to a certain unwanted level. We came up with 2 different types of a brand called LITTELFUSE.
We are so satisfied with these that we want to go so far that we actually RECOMMEND these for a better sound ánd for a better handling of unexpected issues like a problematic tube. For this new PrimaLuna DiaLogue Premium Integrated Amplifier, but also for all other models produced since 2003!
