Dutch firm PrimaLuna was founded in 2003 and have steadily released new products ever since with multiple product levels including ProLogue Original, ProLogue Classic, ProLogue Premium, DiaLogue and DiaLogue Premium.

16 years on and the company’s founder, Herman van den Dungen, has decided now is the time for the next phase in PrimaLuna’s evolution. The existing product range has been phased out, replaced by the 13-model EvoLution Series which reorganises the range into four clear levels – EVO 100, EVO 200, EVO 300 and EVO 400. EVO 100 represents entry-level, while EVO 400 is the pinnacle of the range.

Each of these four levels comprises an integrated amp, a preamp and a power amp, all building on the design of outgoing models with enhancements including new transformers and greater output power, upgrades to key circuit components and improved internal wiring. New facilities have been added to some models, including dedicated headphone amplification and – in the case of the EVO 300 and 400 power amps and EVO 400 preamp – balanced XLR connections. A separate phono stage, isolated in its own enclosure, attaches underneath the integrated and preamp models as an option for those running a turntable.

There is also a thirteenth component – a DAC called the EVO 100 Tube Digital AnaLogue Converter, which features the world’s first valve-based data clocking device.

The new models embody all the things that PrimaLuna fans love about the company’s products – superb valve sound at affordable prices, with class-leading reliability, flexibility and ease of use – whilst bringing enhanced design and some ingenious new ideas to the table.

The 13 new models are listed below, together with their UK RRPs. All are available in the UK from September 2019 and are distributed in the UK by Absolute Sounds.
