FS: Primaluna Dialogue Premium Pre-amplifier

Recommended Posts

Item: Primaluna Dialogue Premium Pre-amplifier
Location: Cabramatta, Sydney NSW
Price:
$2,600 (RRP $4,195)
Item Condition: Excellent
Reason for selling: NLR
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
Extra Info:

Had a bit of technical issue on the last sale, so I dropped this to Pacific Hi-Fi for inspection, and apparently there was a bit of short circuit which has been repaired by them and given a clean bill of health. Can provide the receipt for 120 days of warranty from them.  

 

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.

just noticed you have a few Parasound amps there, Im currently in the process of changing everything.

At the moment I have maggie 1.7, 2x A21 parasound, Audio research LS17se.

A friend has given me a pair of harbeth SHL5+ to listen to but the treble is a bit harsh for my liking although they are beautiful and you can hear every bit of information from a cd, I have been trying  to borrow a Primaluna to see if I can tame that treble a bit.

Also I have recently listened to a pair of Focal 1008be which sound delightful, lots of energy so not sure what to do yet!!!!

What does the Prima luna sound like in comparison to the Parasounds ?

Hi motorsportmatt

 

My primaluna is preamp, not a poweramp so I'm not sure if i can give you an apple to apple comparison. My parasound amps are solid state so the high freq are more present and detailed. Primaluna is more about warmth and musicality in the sound. You will have less ear fatigue listening to a tube gear for a long listening sessions.

      Item: Devialet 400 Mono Amplifiers/ Streamer/ DAC/ PhonoStage.
      Location: Adelaide 
      Price: $7900
      Item Condition: As New
      Reason for selling: NLR 
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info: Selling a pair of Devialet 400 Mono Amplifiers in As New condition!
      Come with remote and original factory packaging. These amps don’t disappoint and they have an excellent Dac and PhonoStage. Cheers.
       
      * Even under the unforgiving microscope of the Magico Q7s, the pair of Devialets sounded like much, much, more expensive electronics. This level of dynamic verve, bass authority, clarity, and resolution is unprecedented at this price, in my experience.
      Just to check myself, at the end of the auditioning I switched back to the Berkeley Alpha USB and Alpha DAC reference digital front end, Soulution 725 preamp, and 701 monoblocks, a roughly $230k combination (which I had not heard for about two weeks). This juxtaposition only reinforced just how great a pair of Devialet 200s sound, and what an amazing value they represent. A mono pair is significantly better sounding in all respects than a single stereo unit.

      Item: FS: Monitor Audio Gold 200 5G - Satin White
      Location: Perth
      Price: $4,999 (RRP: $6,990). Free Delivery in Perth Metro - Interstate shipping at buyer's cost.
      Item Condition: Absolutely immaculate
      Reason for selling: Wrong colour!
      Payment Method: Bank Deposit
      Extra Info: These speakers are the brand new 5G Series. We were the first store to get a pair of new Gold speakers in for audition - at the time there was no colour option available. These present as new and are perfect in every way, not a blemish or mark. They have had their typical run in time - I would guess they have had no more of 100 hours use, 90 of which would have been the run-in period. We have had some assistance from the distributor in regard to moving these along to make way for our floor colour option of choice, so take advantage of this one-off special price of a truly beautiful sounding and looking speaker. Full five year warranty will apply.
