I believe these are the best Valve amps on the market for durability, reliability, build quality, versatility, value and ease of use

Auto Bias. Bad tube indicator

Fantastic amps for tube rolling. 12U7 signal tubes-the most prolific & inexpensive tubes available

Power amp can use 

  • For 12AU7: ECC82, ECC802S, E82CC, 5814, 6189, CV4003

  • For KT88: 6550, KT90. You may also use EL34, 6L6GC, 7581A and KT66 though power will drop

    slightly.

  • For EL34: 6CA7, E34LS, E34L. You may also use 6L6GC, 7581A and KT66 KT120  KT150

PrimaLuna® ProLogue PremiumEL34/KT88 Switch

The ProLogue Premium Stereo Amplifiers—as well as the Premium Integrated and Mono amplifiers—come with an EL34/KT88 bias switch. This means that by the flip of a switch you can choose the optimum bias setting for EL34s or KT88s. No hassle with screwdrivers, no messing around with meters etc. If you swap tubes, simply flip the switch for optimum bias!

And should you use the “wrong” bias setting for the tubes in use, don’t worry. It just means you did not choose the “optimum” bias setting as decided by the PrimaLuna design team. Some PrimaLuna owners even like to “play” with this switch to see what is the optimum bias setting for their circumstances and some go even further and play with this switch while having a mix of EL34 and KT88 within one channel. All is possible due to the PrimaLuna Adaptive AutoBias Circuit.

.

Power Amp can operate in Stereo or Mono at the flip of a switch

 

This PrimaLuna ProLogue Premium Stereo Amplifier features:

  • Hand-made construction with the finest point-to-point wiring, using workmanship that is equal to orbetter than any product you can buy at any price.

  • A heavy-gauge, fully-vented steel chassis with a five coat finish. Each coat is hand-rubbed andpolished.

  • Premium parts that include a toroidal transformer for power supply; custom designed -inconjunction with one of the most prestigious transformer designers in the USA- encapsulated output transformers the quality of which fits nicely between standard ProLogue and DiaLoguetransformers; wide bandwidth for great bass and extended highs; ceramic tube sockets; ALPS volume control; Nichicon and Solen capacitors; superfast Philips-diode-circuitry; gold-platedheavy duty WBT style speaker terminals (all speaker connectors are solid shaft, without hole, forbetter conductance, better sound and higher reliability); gold-plated panel mounted input jacks.

  • SoftStartTM circuit for extended life of sensitive components, plus a reduced chance of tube failurefrom thermal shock.

  • A new generation Adaptive AutoBiasTM exclusive to PrimaLuna. This circuit monitors and smoothlyadjusts bias constantly and instantly, reducing maintenance and increasing performance due to the dramatic reduction in distortion. It comes with a new extensive output stage protection circuitry with +B relay to protect output transformers, resistors and high voltage power supply in case a tube fails. In all ProLogue Premium Amplifier models the new generation Adaptive Auto BiasBoard comes with our new BTITM circuit. BTITM stands for Bad Tube Indication (by LEDs), makingtube-life again a bit easier.

  • The ProLogue Premium Stereo Amplifiers as well as the Integrated and Mono amplifiers come with an EL34/KT88 bias switch. This means that with the flip of a switch you can choose for the optimum bias setting for EL34 type of tubes or KT88 type of tubes. No hassle with screwdrivers,no messing around with meters etc. Just switch tubes, switch bias!

  • No more 12AX7 tubes in the ProLogue Premium range of products. Instead of a 12AX7/12AU7 combination in each channel, we use a double 12AU7 combination. Lower distortion levels, higherlevel of sound quality. Distortion levels in the first stage have dropped with a factor of 5 at low levels to at least 20 at higher levels, above 1V.
