I just want to share my story to become a PrimaLuna fanboy. Yesterday I went to my dealer to have an audition on the PrimaLuna ProLogue Premium Preamp. I intended to use it with a pair of SS monoblocks. When I came there the owner greeted me and we speak about my system while his staff preparing the set up. I told him that I’m using a pair of Magnepan and my room size is not big, however I still want to have powerful system to keep me for future upgrade (1.7 or higher). Then he suggested why not try PrimaLuna integrated and explained a bit more to me about their integrated amps driving Sonus Faber and Martin Logan with ease… Although I know the output power of tube amps is always much bigger than the number it suggest, however I doubt it… To convince me he said “I guaranteed you that the PrimaLuna integrated can easily drive your Maggies beautifully”. Then he told his staff to bring out the DiaLogue Premium integrated, running with 4 x KT88 tubes (which output is 40wpc). The speakers in the audition is Martin Logan Theos. I was stunned immediately by the PrimaLuna DiaLogue amp. Seeing my hesitation, he added “You can bring back the amp in a week to get full refund if you’re not happy” which finally made me take out my wallet.
Straight out of the box, I was surprised by the DiaLogue Premium. That’s the very first hours so the burn in time is not finished yet, but its sound is so powerful, smooth, warm and inviting… I read all the reviews about it on the internet but nothing like you can feel it yourself. I think my search for the amplifier is over… Running KT88 tubes which put out 40wpc, it drives my Maggies beautifully and blew away my integrated 200wpc…
I’m a happy camper now. So far I can stop thinking about upgrading the core units (speakers, amps, DAC…) in a couple of years.
Thanks for bringing such an amazing product to life. I wish you all the best with your company.
