Stereophile Recommended “Class A” Component 2020: PrimaLuna EVO 400 Tube Preamplifier!


Stereophile’s Recommended Component 2020 list is now available on the website of Stereophile Magazine. We are proud that several PrimaLuna’s are included in this renowned list. Our PrimaLuna EVO 400 Tube Preamplifier is listed as Class A Recommended component in the category preamplifier.


“PrimaLuna’s brand-new flagship line-level preamp—it replaces the company’s DiaLogue Premium—the EVO 400 uses tubes for rectification as well as for gain and buffering, and includes input and output transformers that allow balanced operation. Noting that its extraordinary weight (52.8lb) comes not from its steel chassis but from its abundance of power-supply transformers and chokes, HR praised the EVO 400’s very high parts quality and lavished similar praise on its “scintillating” presentation and ability to portray vivid, well-saturated musical colors while nevertheless being “more concise-sounding” than its predecessor in the PrimaLuna line. “It generated clearer, more muscular presentations with sharper focus and more distinctly punctuated momentums.” Reporting from his test bench, JA noted that “the EVO 400 measures well for a tubed design.”
