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.

      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.

      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.

      Items: Great Desktop/Small System

      Kingrex Pre-Amp V3

      Kingrex T20U Amplifier and USB DAC

      Kingrex Linear PSU MKII (matching T20U)


       
      All original packaging in good condition. Original power supply and cables for T20U are included (although you'd never go back to this after using the PSU).


       
      Location: SYD – Hurlstone Park 2193


      Item Condition: Excellent


      Price:  $400 obo (original retail for the lot was over $1.6k)


       
      Reason for selling: Used to be set up as a desktop system on my wife's desk while she was working from home, we're down to one desk now and unfortunately no room to set this up currently.


       
      Payment Method: Cash on pick-up, PayPal (+3% or as friend)


      Extra Info:

      I am the original owner of all the Kingrex gear. T20U and PSU were purchased from Coem Audio here in Oz in mid-late 2012. Pre-Amp was purchased from authorised seller in the UK in 2014.


       
      This is an amazing and well-reviewed setup for desktop listening. Smooth, detailed, fast and with awesome mids and imaging. The Pre-Amp is a great piece of gear in its own right, and elevates the whole stack to another level. Very sad to see this go, and definitely prefer to sell as a package.


       
      Used to run these with various speakers over the years and they are able to drive even mid-efficient speakers to levels you would not expect from the size/specs. Just don’t try anything that dips into the sub-4Ohm region consistently, they’ll be challenged …. 😊 


       
      On the desk they were set up with a pair of John Blue JB3s, which was an amazing match for near field listening.


       
      Can be inspected/tested at my place in Hurlstone Park, and am happy to post insured at buyer’s cost as all original packaging is available. Can also drop off within Sydney Metro area if paid at or near the asking price prior.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.
