NEW BRANDS

PrimaLuna

PrimaLuna ProLogue Two integrated ampOne of the hardest and yet most important tasks we undertake at Audio Nexus is our continual search for affordably-priced products that offer true, audiophile performance. Beyond that, of course, we want these products to look good and be reliable. Those of you who follow the audiophile press have probably noticed that one such brand, PrimaLuna, has been garnering effusive praise and a plethora of astonishing reviews all over the world for the last few years. There have also been numerous awards such as "Product of the Year for 2006" from The Absolute Sound for the ProLogue Six mono-block power amplifiers and "Class B Recommended Component" from Stereophile for the ProLogue One integrated amplifier, the ProLogue 3 preamplifier, and the ProLogue 7 mono-block amplifiers.

Recently, PrimaLuna has decided to add to its distribution by forming partnerships with a very limited number of U. S. dealers so that customers will have the opportunity to audition and purchase these magnificent products from a local dealer. It is our great pleasure to announce that, after over a year of negotiation, we have been named the exclusive dealer for PrimaLuna sales in New Jersey!

The driving force behind PrimaLuna, a Dutch company, is Herman van den Dungen. He has created a line of preamplifiers, integrated amplifiers, and power amplifiers that sound terrific, are amazingly reliable, and are built to a quality standard that is rarely matched by even some of the most expensive components out there. To top all of this, the PrimaLuna products are surpassingly attractive. They have neat, clean lines, superb fit and finish, and are decked out with a high gloss finish consisting of 5 coats of hand-polished lacquer. They are very pretty pieces! There are four integrated amplifiers (ProLogue One, ProLogue Two, DiaLogue One, DiaLogue Two), a preamplifier (ProLogue Three), two stereo power amplifiers (ProLogue Four, ProLogue Five), and two sets of mono-block power amplifiers (ProLogue Six, ProLogue Seven). In addition, any of the integrated amplifiers or the preamplifier can be fitted with a built-in phono preamplifier. Please visit our Products page for pricing information.

Here are some of the seminal features incorporated into the PrimaLuna line:

  1. Gentle Power Up: A soft-start circuit extends component and tube life by powering up the unit gradually whenever it is turned on.
     
  2. Extra Protection: A tube plate fuse protects amplifier output stages from tube failure, preventing unnecessary repairs. Just plug in a new tube and fuse, and the music is back.
     
  3. Adaptive AutoBias: Exclusive to PrimaLuna, this circuit monitors and adjusts bias automatically. Each power tube is automatically kept in a peak operating range. This results in improved performance and better sound, with distortion reduced by 40% to 50% over conventional bias setups. There's never a need to match tubes or adjust tube bias. Adaptive AutoBias also allows you to experiment with different power tubes.
     
  4. Custom-designed output transformers : The integrated and power amplifiers use encapsulated, low-hum, wide-bandwidth designs for great bass and extended highs. They are designed by Marcel Croese in cooperation with one of the most prestigious transformer designers in the USA .
     
  5. Premium Parts: These products are made with parts whose quality is normally associated with much more expensive brands. Examples include ceramic tube sockets, Alps potentiometers, Nichicon and Realcap capacitors, WBT style speaker terminals, and gold-plated input jacks.
     
  6. Construction: All models are hand-made with the finest point-to-point wiring, with workmanship equal to or better than any product you can buy at any price .
     
  7. Chassis Construction: Each piece is built in a fully-vented chassis made of finely finished heavy gauge steel. Forget about those ubiquitous pebble or powder coat finishes you see on so many electronics. Each PrimaLuna jewel is finished with a five-step, automotive-quality finish, and each coat is hand rubbed and polished. A removable tube cage is included at no extra cost.
     
  8. Toroidal Power Transformers: What you don't want is to hear a component's power transformer humming along with your music. These toroidal transformers give you low hum and a front end that is dead quiet.
     
  9. Conservative Design Parameters: These products run the tubes very conservatively for long tube life.
     

Here's what one of our customers wrote to us two days after picking up his brand new PrimaLuna ProLogue Two:

I just want to let you know that the Prima Luna Prologue 2 has far exceeded my expectations. Not just mine but also my wife's. It is as if filters and coloration have been removed and the full 'bandwidth' and nuance of the music are now flowing out of the speakers in an effortless sort of way. There are voices behind voices, harmonies underneath harmonies, sub tones and whispers that just were not part of our listening experience before. There is an uncanny sense of dimension, clarity and balance. All of this is amazing since it is experienced with my existing low-budget DVD player and record player, and the amp is not yet broken in. I never thought that a good quality amp would offer such an immediate and profound improvement. A friend of mine who has a good system came for a listen and was blown away - he actually called me yesterday to tell me that he is now depressed when he listens to his system. Any, way, I thought that I would share this with you and thank you for making this wonderful component available.--L. S., Teaneck, NJ

The point is that you get all of this construction quality and all of that great sound in products ranging from only $1375 to $3150. Please come down to audition these remarkable products, and we think you'll be as impressed as we are. For more information, please visit:
