PrimaLuna have taken their extremely well regarded line-up and outdone themselves with the new EVOLUTION range.
These modern tube amplifiers have the magical warmth and depth of tubes with modern world technologies applied to make them relatively fuss free without impacting sound. The Prima Luna range is all expertly designed and manufactured to a level that seems impossible for their price.... more importantly the sound has the sublime sound of tubes coupled to a neutral, airy top end without the roll off of many others.
The EVO 400 integrated shares several upgrades that step it up a notch over the EVO 200 and EVO 100 and with twice the output tubes it has the most power of any of the integrated Tube amplifiers in the PrimaLuna range.
EVO 300/400 upgrades over the EVO 100/200 include:
Swiss Made Wiring
EVO 400 & EVO 300 models use Swiss-made, silver-plated, oxygen-free continuous crystal (OCC) copper with a Teflon dielectric in the critical signal path for superior signal speed and increased clarity.
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 gear. "Modders" love TAKMAN for their low noise, linearity, and musicality.
DuRoch Tinfoil Capacitors
Premium tinfoil capacitors made to PrimaLuna specifications are used in the critical signal paths. These are very expensive but the sonic results speak for themselves.
AC Offset Killer - A PrimaLuna Exclusive
AC Offset Killer is about goose bumps. 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. Our 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.
Both the EVO 300 and 400 have an RCA Subwoofer outputs
