  1. Item: Primaluna Dialogue Premium Pre-amplifier Location: Sydney 2166 Price: $2,600 (RRP $4,195) Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: It's pretty hard for me to let this go, but rather than being unused it's probably better to have a new home. My power amp is using XLR/Balanced only connection so I had to use my other preamp. All tubes are standard stock primaluna tubes. It's going to be hard for you to get this quality gear at this price, it's almost half price from the RRP of $4,195. I'm the 2nd owner. The PrimaLuna brand has been making waves in the High end Audio industry for producing premium built products that perform to a standard well beyond their peers at the same price point. The PrimaLuna Dialogue Premium Pre-Amp is a wonderfully detailed and warm sound with plenty of treble extension and air. The soundstage that this tube pre-amp presents is huge! This is an excellent valve pre-amp that is super quiet/low noise, a nice dash of the famous tube warmth all with fabulous frequency extension both in lowest bass power and highest, airiest treble. Featuring dual pre-outs, Home Theatre bypass functionality and an awesome sound here is your chance to save a bundle. I would like to do PICK UP ONLY - No Shipping.

  2. Item: For sale is my much loved PrimaLuna Prologue Premium Integrated Amplifier with KT120, KT77 and EL34 Tubes. Location: Bayside (Melbourne) Price: $2,550 Item Condition: The amplifier is in excellent condition and has been meticulously looked after, there is one minor surface scratch on the tube cage, however this is not very noticeable. Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Accompanying the amplifier are: Matched quads of power tubes Tung-Sol KT120, Genalex KT77, PrimaLuna El34 and PrimaLuna stock 12AU7’s for the gain and driver tubes. The amplifier was not used heavily and is easy on the tubes, so there will be plenty of life left in all the tubes. Slimline heavy duty remote control. There are many great reviews on the PrimaLuna Prologue Premium if you search around the Web. I am the original owner and purchased the amplifier new 2 years ago from Class A Audio. I have the box and packaging as well as the instruction manual and will consider couriering at the buyer’s risk where the buyer organises and provides confirmation of shipping insurance. I plan to sell the amplifier and tubes as a package and will not separate. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  3. Item: PrimaLuna EL34 - Matched Quad Condition and Description: Excellent, bought new from Class A Audio, to try an EL34. I also had KT77’s so didn’t use these much, they probably have had less than 10 hours use. Price: $175 - Price Reduced (for the quad) Item: PSvane 12AU7-TII – Two pairs available Condition and Description: Excellent, bought from a fellow SNAer about two years ago with less than 100 hours on them. Used them for another 30 hours before settling on the Gold Lions. Price: $70 per pair Item: Tung-Sol 6SN7-GTB – One pair Condition and Description: Excellent, purchased new for my Icon Audio ST60 MK3 but ended up getting a pair of PSvane CV181’s instead so they were used for less than 50 hours. Price: $50 per pair Reason for selling: I'm selling off most of my valve collection now as I’ve settled on an amp that only uses 6922’s. All the valves listed, with the exception of the 6SN7’s, were only used in my PrimaLuna Dialogue which is notoriously easy on valves. Location: Sandringham, Melbourne Payment: Paypal, Cash - Pickup, or Australia Post COD. A relevant donation will be made to SNA after the sale. Pictures:
  4. Item: Primaluna Dialogue Premium Integrated Amplifier with over $1k of extra tubes Location: Daylesford Price: 3200 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Change of direction Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: 1st owner of this lovely amplifier that works flawlessly. Just over a year old. Includes the following tubes for you to find the sound you like (I've mostly been using the KT120's with nos Mullards - Matched quad Gold Lion KT77 Matched quad Gold Lion KT88 Matched quad Tung-Sol KT120 6 x Primaluna 12AU7 4 x nos Brimar CV4003 2 x nos 1960's Blackburn Mullard ECC82 2 x nos 1964 RCA Cleartop 12AU7 2 x PSVANE 12AU7 -TII Remote control & gloves for tube handling also included as well as a few spare fuses. I have the original box, but would prefer pickup due to weight. Can send at buyers risk using Pack & Send. Last package I sent around this weight was just over $200 with insurance etc. Cheers Pictures:
  5. Item: Primaluna Dialogue Premium Valve Line Stage Preamp Location: Melbourne Inner East Price: $3,500 $3,250( RRP $4,195) plus including free shipping to major cities and regional centres in Australia; SNA donation on completion of sale Item Condition: Near new Reason for selling: Simplification of music chain Payment Method: Pickup with cash, otherwise Bank Transfer Extra Info: I bought this preamp in Dec 2018, so it is almost new. It replaced an Audio Research LS17SE. What impressed me was its dead quiet background and its ability to control all elements of the sound stage, making the resolution superb. The warmth and musicality it gave my setup was excellent. Oh, it also has 6 tubes that you can indulge in tube rolling. If buyer is interested, can include 2 almost new pairs of 12AU7 PSVane tubes (used for less than 20 hours,) and 2 pairs of 12AU7 GE NOS tubes, used for testing. The 4 pairs of tubes will cost an additional $150 when purchased together with the preamp (Paid $455 for tubes). Will sell 4 pairs of tubes separately as a package for $300. www.primaluna-usa.com/dialogue-premium-preamplifier While it is difficult to ignore (& you may even hate!) Ken Deal’s bombastic American pitch in the video, he does make some good points about how well built it is as an analogue device and why it sounds so good. Reviews here www.primaluna-usa.com/reviews-dialogue-premium-preamplifier Warranty is 2 years for original owner only. If the buyer is in Melbourne or in country Victoria, it will be relatively easy for me to lodge a warranty claim with the retailer. However, if the buyer is interstate and prepared to ship this 30 kg package to me to lodge the warranty claim, I will consider the offer. Of course, let’s assume it will run without problems. Please note that there is no manual, despite being listed as in the box in the electronic copy. Shipping is extra with original packaging. Pictures:

  8. Item: Primaluna Dialogue Premium Power Amp Location: Melbourne Price: $2695 Item Condition: Immaculate Reason for selling: Regretful sale to fund another purchase Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Bought brand new in April 2017, so it's just over 18 months old, the amp was unpacked onto a HiFi shelf in a dedicated music room and hasn't moved since. It's in as new condition and comes complete with all original supplied accessories including the remote, cotton gloves, spare fuses etc, and also the double box. I am selling it with the original Primaluna KT88 and 12AU7 valves, which have probably had less than 30 hours use, and are excellent valves in their own right. This is a second amp in my system, or spare as my wife says, so it's not had a lot of use. I think this amp is truly a giant killer and, I'm my experience, for the money nothing comes close. It responds so well to different types of valves and I particularly love the sound of the Genalex Gold Lion KT77's, but you can also use EL34's, KT120's and KT150's (as well as the supplied KT88's). And if that's not enough fun for you, you can also roll the 12AU7's input valves just as easily. This is due to the clever adaptive bias system the amp which makes 'rolling valves' a simple plug and play process. On top of that the adaptive bias runs valves in a low stress state so they last a lot longer than in some other amps, all this with impacting the sound. The amp has plenty of power, my speaker's sensitivity are 87db, and it drives them really well. You also get a choice of 4, 8 and 16 ohm taps so you can match a wide variety of speakers. The advantage of this particular version of Dialogue is that you only need to buy a quad of power values if you want to play with different types and it makes the exotic NOS valves more attainable. There are many many glowing reviews online, just do a quick search, but to quote one very famous HiFi critic, Art Dudley from Stereophile Magazine, “I tried to find fault with the PrimaLuna DiaLogue Premium. I failed.” Pictures:
  9. Item: Primaluna Dialogue Premium Power Amp Location: Sandringham Price: $2950 Item Condition: Immaculate Reason for selling: Regretful sale due to a vehicle purchase Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, EFT, COD Only Extra Info: I know people always say that it's a regretful sale, but this truely is, I agreed that I would sell some of my 'spare' HiFi to fund the purchase of a vehicle. Anyway, I bought this power amp brand new in April 2017 so it's just over 18 months old. It was unpacked onto a HiFi shelf in a dedicated music room and hasn't moved since. It's in as new condition and comes complete with all original supplied accessories including the remote, cotton gloves, spare fuses etc, and also the double box. I am selling it with the original Primaluna KT88 and 12AU7 valves, which have probably had less than 30 hours use, and are excellent valves in their own right. This is a second amp in my system, or spare as my wife says, so it's not had a lot of use. I think this amp is truely a giant killer and, I'm my experience, for the money nothing comes close. It respond so well to upgrades and I particularly love the Genalex Gold Llion KT77's in it, but you can also use EL34's, KT120's and KT150's (as well as the supplied KT88's). And if that's not enough fun for you, you can also upgrade of the 12AU7's input valves. Due to the clever adaptive bias system the amp uses all this can be done easily and 'rolling valves' is a simple plug and play process. The amp has plenty of power, my speaker's sensitivity is 87db, and it drives them really well. You also get a choice of 4, 8 and 16 ohm taps so you can match a wide variety of speakers.

  10. Item: PrimaLuna Dialogue Premium Pre-Amplifier Location: 3782 VIC Price: $2.600 plus shipping Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Chasing butterflies. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal (Friend) . Extra Info: Item can be shipped in original packaging. Extra Info: Item can be auditioned. This amp has been my reference for audio, but is hardly being used since I mostly watch movies or play games in my home theater room. I kept it around because it is such a great performer, but it deserves a whole lot more use than what I am giving it. Because of this I have decided to chase butterflies in pursuit of the same kind of performance in multichannel audio and looking for a new home and free up some funds. Pictures:
  11. I’m part way into the process of gradually upgrading most of my 2 channel system. One of the components I’m looking to upgrade soon is my integrated amplifier, which is currently a Audiolab 8000A. I’m very tempted by a PrimaLuna Dialogue Premium integrated amplifier. I haven’t yet auditioned one but will do so soon. But I notice that the “standard” model is listed as 2 x 36W, which I’m worried might not be powerful enough. I’m no head-banger (way too old for that), but I would have thought that it’s good to have an amplifier with enough power reserve to properly cope with musical transients. So is 2 x 36W “enough” or should I look at spending the extra money on the HP version which claims to have 2 x 70W? I know that “enough” is very subjective, but I’m new to valve amps and it would be tricky to organise a home trial of both versions of the amp. (My current speakers are currently a pair of Whatmough 202’s, but they’re probably going to be replaced soon too.)
  12. Item: PrimaLuna ProLogue Premium Stereo Power Amplifier (KT120) Location: Victoria Price: $1200 Item Condition: Excellent - they look pretty much like new to me - no scratches, marks etc. Reason for selling: Upgrade Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I have this amplifier for about 3 years and in storage for 1.5 years. Only had about 150 hours on it as a 2nd system. I have upgraded the stock power tubes to Tung Sol KT-120 matching tubes. The amplifer is in perfect working conditions. Will ship to other states plus extra shipping cost. Pictures:
  13. Hi peeps, Any sugguestions as to where I can get a PrimaLuna preamp serviced in Melbourne? Many thanks.
  14. Item: PrimaLuna - Prologue Premium - CD Player $2000 Location: Clayton VIC, freight available. Price: $2000. (RRP $3999) Item Condition: Like New, played a handful of discs comes with 3 months warranty and all packaging and accessories. Still has plastic protective film over metal chassis Reason for selling: Display Model. Payment Method: Eftpos, Cash, PayPal (+3%) or Direct Deposit Extra Info: The ProLogue Premium CD Player comes equipped with: True Dual Mono design using two 12AU7 dual-triode tubes and one 5AR4 rectifier tube per channel. While it is fine to use a single tube as a buffer and claim your CD player is "tube", it can't be compared to the PrimaLuna design and what it does for the music. Vacuum tube rectified power supply adapted from the award-winning ProLogue Three preamp that incorporates eleven separate power supply regulation circuits. Tube rectification is synonymous with organic sound, especially with CD players being know as sounding like "a computer." State-of-the-art Burr Brown SRC4192 24 bit/192kHz upsampling circuit and Burr Brown PCM1792 DACs. Two SuperTube Clocks™. An ultra-low jitter clocking device that replaces the solid-state oscillator with a vacuum tube. Yields incredible detail retrieval and dynamics throughout the entire audio spectrum. Why use two? The addition of the second clock further reduces jitter, resulting in greater detail and resolution. Highest quality USB digital input allows using your computer for storage and playback of your music with all the benefits of features like playlists and easier access to your whole music library. Rather than just add in a USB input as an afterthought, PrimaLuna engineers searched endlessly looking for the best-sounding USB interface we could find. We found the hiFace, made by M2Tech in Italy. This USB input converts the jitter-filled USB digital signal to S/PDIF, dramatically improving the digital signal quality before it even gets to the SuperTube Clocks. This USB input is a true high-resolution digital input, so you can play back your high resolution digital files, up to 24-bit/192kHz. Premium parts including polypropylene coupling caps, triple pi power supply filters, custom designed isolation transformers which separate the analogue and digital devices, Resulting in decreased signal degradation and improved sonics from top to bottom. Many CD players weigh in at five kilos or less. The ProLogue Premium tips the scales at 15 kilos! Beautiful heavy-gauge anodised brushed aluminium remote control. Controls all important CD operations and will even control functions on the DiaLogue components. Comes with rubber rings on both ends to protect furniture. New power transformers. Heavy-duty, dual-mono, power transformers increase control and detail. PTP-circuit. If the power transformer should overheat, this innovative "Power Transformer Protection" circuit cuts primary power, allows the preamp to cool down, then resets itself. Chassis made of finely finished heavy gauge steel, and five step automotive quality finish. Each coat hand rubbed and polished. Removable tube cage included no charge. Conservative design runs tubes easy for long life. Specifications: Freq.

  17. Item: Primaluna Dialogue Premium Integrated Amplifier with KT88 tubes Location:Denmark, WA Price: $2,900 plus shipping. Item Condition:Excellent and in perfect working order Reason for selling:Rationalising gear and moving to solid state Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I purchased this Primaluna dialogue premium amp in July 2015 from Aussie Hi fi. It is in excellent condition and perfect working order. There is a slight knick on one of the input terminals on the back that I made. It has a set of Primaluna KT88 power tubes and I have several sets of preamp tubes including prima luna and tung sol which I will also include. I am moving away from tubes and into solid state for the time being. No doubt that will change again in the future but for now it is sitting unused which is just silly. It has been driving a pair of Harbeth Super HL5s with ease. Of course, the Primaluna gets outstanding reviews and I will leave it to anyone interested to look those up. Dont hesitate to contact me by PM or phone to discuss. Cheers Rob Pictures:
