When a replacement for the awe-inspiring DiaLogue One and DiaLogue Two integrated amplifiers were being penned by the PrimaLuna engineers in The Netherlands, it was a difficult job ahead. They had to exceed the performance of two products that were some of the best reviewed in the industry. Both models had won more accolades and awards than they surely could have hoped for. It was a challenge that the Dutch team took to heart.
The result has been an explosion that could never be predicted. Immediately, there was a rave review Stereophile’s Sam Tellig resulting in a Stereophile Class A rating, which means “the best without regard to cost”. A review from The Absolute Sound’s Dick Olsher ended by saying “It is my current benchmark in integrated tube amplifiers.” The Absolute Sound followed up by awarding a 2014 Editor’s Choice Award. But it was the buzz generated by audiophiles around the world that propelled the DiaLogue Premium to a position of the being the one you want to own.
Now..the introduction of the DiaLogue Premium HP
It’s easy to get more power from a tube. Run it harder. You will see claims of up as high as 100 watts from a pair of KT120’s. PrimaLuna amps, however, are famous for long tube life, running cool, and being absolutely the easiest amplifier to own. They’ve done this by increasing the power and output transformer size and designing and building a larger Adaptive AutoBias board and supporting circuitry to run eight power tubes instead of four – doubling the power and increasing bass slam. Customers can use almost any tube on the market from EL-34’s or KT88’s to Tung-sol KT120’s.
The new headphone amp may be the best you ever heard. Why? It’s running from all the power tubes! An elegant, well-designed circuit allows you to switch from speakers to headphone as you wish. If you love private listening, this amp will wow you!
