Up for sale is my Primaluna Dialogue One integrated amp. The amp is in excellent condition. The only cosmetic issues are a very slightly bent speaker terminal and a couple scratches from where the tube cage pin goes in to the chassis. The speaker terminal hasn’t affected the use of either spades or banana plugs. I got the amp a couple of years ago from Upscale Audio as an open box item. I believe it was used in their demo room and/or at audio shows. It has never had an issue performance wise. It sounds amazing. The only reason I’m selling is because I’m trying a Class A SET tube amp and I have to sell what I’m not using as part of a deal with my wife. Otherwise I would keep this amp. I had thought about upgrading to the Dialogue Premium HP, but when I heard them side-by-side I couldn’t tell enough of a difference in sound to justify the cost. The Dialogue One was one of the first Primaluna models but is built similarly to the Dialogue Premium. Even someone at Upscale told me upgrading to the Dialogue Premium or Premium HP wouldn’t change the sound much unless my speakers needed the extra power of the HP.
This amp has some upgrades that I am including in the sale at my asking price. The upgrades include a Synergistic Research Blue fuse ($150 value). I also attached some Vibrapods for the feet, and will include the original feet as well. It will include the stock Primaluna tubes, which have very low hours on them. I’ll also include a matched quad set of Genelex Gold Lion KT-88 tubes which have about 200 hours on them and a quad set of Tung-Sol 6L6GT-STR (pictured).
This amp is heavy. I'm charging a flat $50 for shipping to the lower 48. I'll pay the paypal fee at my asking price. I have the original packing.
Here are some videos I’ve posted of the amp in action:
