A like-new condition, 1 owner, 1 year old PrimaLuna Prologue Premium tube power amplifier with original TRIPLE shipping boxes, packing materials, paperwork, power cord, full set of vacuum tubes, extra fuses, and protective tube cage. This unit has the latest white caps instead of the black ones, which are not as good sounding. This was purchased new from Upscale Audio last year by a close audiophile friend of mine, who recently passed due to Leukemia. I am helping his wife out by selling off his system so she can try to cover some of his medical expenses. He bough this new last March from Upscale Audio, and it has only seen a few weeks use, for he began his treatments soon afterwards, and his health declined quickly after that. I tested the amp out myself this week, and had all the tubes professionally tested as well, to confirm their strength. You can see the test results for each tube, which were checked using the manual bias settings on a recently calibrated state-of-the-art Amplitrex AT1000 digital tester. The four Prima-Luna branded EL34s tested 91%, 89%,87% and 90% GM. The two PrimaLuna branded 12AU7's tested over 100%, and the other pair of upgraded, NOS 12AU7's he used as input tubes (desireable CBS blackplate 5814's) tested between 81 and 86%.
The test result tags will be included for each tube.
I tested the amp myself, and it sounds quite fantastic. I was very tempted to purchase it and replace my current $5,800 integrated tube amp with it.... It sounded that good! I can understand why the Prologue Premium has won so many awards and so much praise from all the reviewers. Feel free to e-mail me with any questions you may have. Buyer to pay actual shipping and insurance charges. I will cover PayPal fees at my reasonable asking price. Local pick-up and demo is possible and preferred. Thanks for looking!
