This pre-pow kit can be viewed as the premium version of the DiaLogue Premium HP Integrated integrated tube amplifier when the amplifier components are separately separated and built with quality and power and performance. more impressive performances. Although only a young brand (founded in 2003), but with more than 30 years of experience in the field of amplification by founder Herman Van den Dungen and talented design team, led by Marcel Croese – former Golmund’s chief engineer, this Dutch amplifier still knows how to reach users in the most practical aspects that high quality comes at a more affordable price than competitors of the same class.
The pre-amp floor is the most obvious upgrade point of this pre-pow compared to the integrated version. Compared with D-P-Pre integrated amplifier (Dialogue-Pre) -amp still use the same input ball cluster of 6 lights 12AU7. However, it is different from the DiaLogue Premium HP Integrated in that it is equipped with 2 more 5AR4 rectifier balls in the dual mono design to provide better quality preamplifier signals.
In the DiaLogue Premium HP pow-amp, it is built with glossy configuration and power parameters similar to the integrated amplifier version.

I experienced this pre-pow in monoblock configuration, using the pre-amp DiaLogue Premium combined with 2 DiaLogue Premium HP pow-amp runs in mono mode. I chose to combine this system with Sonus Faber’s high-class bookshelf Guarneri Tradition – the legendary loudspeaker of Italian speaker company.
Really, the full, subtle and luxurious sound of Sonus Faber Guarneri Tradition speakers is extremely suitable for the “color” of this PrimaLuna amplifier. Its music immediately gives me the feeling of listening softly and pleasant. It is not the feeling of brilliant sound, impressive at the first few notes so that listeners have to lean up to listen carefully to each timbre which is the kind of music that can help people drop souls. into real entertainment, instead of focusing your time and mind on scrutinizing and judging it.
