DiaLogue Four, Five, Six and Seven. Those were some heady days. On the heels of the most awarded series ever, the ProLogue series, PrimaLuna showed the world that you could make an amp better built and better sounding at a quarter of the price you expected to pay. World class. Try to buy a used DiaLogue amp. Nobody's selling. It is the most cherished, best loved series ever. And those owner's know they have an iconic product that is built to last a lifetime.
How do you exceed the performance of something that is so close to perfection? The design team in The Netherlands took years to make sure that once again, PrimaLuna would make something that was considered to be not just better, but ground-breaking.
The result has been awe-inspiring. Art Dudley, one of the most famous and well-respected reviewers in the industry, reviewed the DiaLogue Premium power amp as a $3199 stereo amp, not even in the more powerful monoblock mode. He was swift to say "I tried to fiind fault with the PrimaLuna DiaLogue Premium. I failed." He went on to say that he has had the pleasure of reviewing some remarkable amplifiers, and that the DiaLogue Premium "is among the four or five most enjoyable." This is important because Art is the reviewer responsible for some of the most expensive products in the world. Tone Audio Magazine's Jeff Dorgay followed suit, awarding the Product of the Year award. Please go to the review section for more details.
Word travelled. Martin-Logan, one of the finest loudspeaker manufacturers in the world, asked to use five DiaLogue Premium monoblocks for their incredible surround display at the biggest industry show in America: CEDIA. You have to put your best foot forward at that show. And Martin-Logan has enough clout that virtually any company would die to be in their room. Now, KEF has asked PrimaLuna to provide electronics for their display at AXPONA. Of course we are humbled and thrilled.
Let's look at the way this amplifier is designed and built.
