EVO 100 Tube Phono Black

The EVO 100 Tube Phono Preamplifier is their family’s newest and first member of affordable, high-quality tube phono products.

The designers and builders of the PrimaLuna equipment all have a long history in high-end audio.

They have shown with PrimaLuna that they can offer a range of affordable yet elegant audio instruments that can easily compete with today’s most expensive brands.

Their quality level will set the bar at a difficult height for other products to match.

The starting point in designing this model was to keep the controls and features as specific as possible—no special features for only a select number of users.

Straight forward the possibility to connect one turntable and for that connected turntable, cartridge make the possible adjustments as simple as possible.

Depending on that choice, an initial choice of MM or MC system allows further adjustments regarding the load, gain, and capacity in the case of MM.

High sound quality, simple ease of operation. This PrimaLuna EVO 100 Phono Tube Preamplifiers features:

Hand-made construction of a heavy-gauge, fully-vented steel chassis with a five coat finish, each coat hand-rubbed and polished, holding the finest point-to-point wiring, using workmanship that is normally only available at the highest price.

Premium parts like used in all their other models; wide bandwidth for great bass and extended highs

EVO 100 Tube Phono Silver

Ceramic tube sockets

Nichicon and DuRoch capacitors

5AR4 tube-rectifier-circuitry

gold-plated panel mounted RCA input and output jacks.

A 100% shielding Phono chassis where needed.

SoftStart™ circuit for extended life of sensitive components, plus a reduced chance of tube failure from thermal shock.

All PrimaLuna power transformers include the PTP™ (Power Transformer Protection) circuit.

When the power transformer overheats due to environmental circumstances, overloading or some problem in the unit,an internal thermal switch breaks the primary, allowing the unit to cool down before harm is done.

After it has cooled, contact is restored and if nothing is broken, the pre-amp will re-power and function properly.

PrimaLuna The driving force behind PrimaLuna is one of high-end audio’s most astute and colorful figures, Herman van den Dungen. It’s been said that many successful, creative people “march to the beat of a different drummer,” but it’s the ability to get others to hear your tune and march with you that distinguishes the most accomplished. Van den Dungen is undoubtedly one of them. With a reputation of gathering the best talent for his projects, the widely-known, Dutch-born entrepreneur in 1998 launched the well-valued AH! Njoe Tjoeb CD player to critical acclaim in Europe. A year later, seeking to expand sales in the United States, he forged a relationship with Kevin Deal. A dynamic, high-end dealer with sufficient capital to import the product, Deal also possessed a characteristic Herman found invaluable—decades of experience in tubes with an intimate knowledge of their ups and downs as they relate to the consumer. The two immediately hit it off, sharing the philosophy of providing an exceptional, reliable product at a great price and delivering incomparable after-sales service.
