Dare to Compare

Compare PrimaLuna construction to any other brand, at any price. You will be amazed.


The ones you get when music comes out of a background so quiet, you may say to yourself “Just how is this possible?”

PrimaLuna custom-winds their own massive toroidal power transformers that are low in hum and EMI.

But they wanted more.

Their engineers designed the AC Offset Killer to lower transformer noise to a place no other manufacturer dreams of going, regardless of how bad your electricity is.

The result? Sense of space. Texture. The resonance of an acoustic guitar or violin string that seems to trail on forever. The AC Offset Killer will amaze you.


If you bought a lesser amplifier, you would pay hundreds to make this upgrade.

Easy to identify through their pink color, these premium resistors from Japan are popular with those who rebuild and upgrade their equipment.

“Modders” love TAKMAN for their low noise, linearity, and musicality.


In the world of preamps, experts agree that tube rectification is the gold standard.

It’s quieter than solid state rectification, dropping the noise floor. And it offers the most natural, textured, and vibrant presentation because the circuit is now pure tube.

But because it is expensive to implement, you’ll only find it in the top of the line models typically costing  a lot more.

Finding a preamp using one rectifier tube is sweet. PrimaLuna goes even further using two 5AR4 rectifier tubes in a dual-mono design to present your music with a three-dimensionality that will give you goosebumps.


The best tube preamps use analogue volume controls.Not volume control chips. Look inside the most well-known brand of tube preamps and you will see a chip called a DS1666-10 Digital Resistor IC.

At Primaluna, they understand the temptation to use this chip as they are in-expensive.

The preamp will sound fine and be quiet, but true to “chips” it will add an electronic “sheen” to the sound. PrimaLuna prefers analogue. And they use the Gold Standard in motorised potentiometers:  The iconic Alps Blue Velvet. Why? Because they track perfectly, stay quiet, and don’t sound like chips!


Input selector switches leak noise and signals from other sources, as they never turn off the other inputs completely. And, they deteriorate with age, requiring the use of cleaners.

Many are mounted on the front panel requiring long runs of wires to the back panel inputs. These wires pick up stray noise from RF and EMI.

PrimaLuna has a better way. Instead of a switch, input selection is done using premium quality sealed relays mounted in the rear where you plug in your components.

When an input is selected, that relay closes giving you the best connection possible.

All the other relays are left open, so noise and signals from other sources can not leak in. The signal path is now almost non-existent, so there are no wires to pick up noise.


You spend a lot of money on interconnects.

So why have the signal go right from the RCA jacks or speaker terminals into circuit boards with copper traces so thin you can hardly see them?  What’s high-end about that?

PrimaLuna employs Point to Point Wiring on all products. EVO 300 Preamplifier uses Swiss-made silver-plated OFC wire.

The entire signal path, including resistors and capacitors, is painstakingly hand wired with heavy-gauge cable by craftsman.


Expensive and exotic preampsalways use a dual-mono design to achieve a level of imaging not possible otherwise.

Most manufacturers don’t employ dual-mono because of expense. It requires two power transformers,double regulation circuits,and in fact….everything is double.

In effect, dual-mono means building two discrete and separate preamps into one box. It is so expensive to build, it’s a rarity even at the highest price points. All PrimaLuna preamps are dual-mono for the ultimate in stereo imaging and a sense of space that goes on forever.

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.
