That amplifier not only sounds good, it has a unique appearance that is attractive in its simplicity. Your wife has good taste.
Thanks Dan - she does. I'm still trying to figure out how she ended up with me though!!

I just received my PL dialogue hp integrated with EL34s. Can't wait to hook this up! This thing is a beast.... weighs almost as much as one of my speakers.

Congrats. Please post pics of your setup with speakers.

I have a few questions below:

1) How long has the the current model been out (DiaLogue Premium Integrated)?

2) What is the typical life of the tubes?

I know this thread is a bit old. But a couple of questions. Has anyone tried the PL HP amp in stereo mode and then moved to mono block mode by buying a second one? Is it a knee shaker? Or is it just a wee bit better?

Kevin you moved to the mono blocks from the integrated - you said it was terrific but I didn't see your comparison. Maybe I missed it.

timm,

Unfortunately I have not made the comparison between stereo and monoblock in my system. I have always been a fan and proponent of monoblock configuration for amps so just went that route initially. I will say that I have had ZERO regrets in going from my McIntosh equipment to the PrimaLuna. My system has never sounded better.

I have not started tube rolling for the power tubes yet, and am still using the stock EL34's. I keep thinking about the TungSol KT150's but they are pricey, especially as I would need 16 of them. The TungSol 7581A tubes also look like a very interesting consideration. I'll definitely post some comments if and or when I make the change.

Anybody audition the DiaLogue Premium/HP with B&W 803D3? I had a combo of 2600/452 (McIntosh before).

I auditioned DiaLogue Premium (I think) about 4 years ago with the Kef LS50 and it was fantastic but during that time I was new to audio and didn't care for the look when the salesman was giving me info.

I spent time with the Dialogue Premium HP Int Amp with my 800D2s. I also tried a couple other tube amps and came to the conclusion that they like big SS amps. Ended up running mine with the 452. YMMV
