PrimaLuna ProLogue Specs Info
ProLogue Six, 70W mono power amplifier
Tubes: 2 x 12AX7, 2 x 12AU7 and 4 x EL-34
Input: RCA single-ended
Outputs: 2, 4 and 8 Ohm
The ProLogue Six shares much of its basic circuitry with the ProLogue Four stereo power amp. The
novel phase splitter and driver stage implementation have been adapted for monaural functionality in
linearity, distortion, and power delivery. We accomplish this by using an industry unique dual
feedback topology: Cross coupled current feedback for superior impulse behaviour and gain stability at
any level. We use very small amounts of negative feedback for a more precise gain setting, lower
distortion, and lower output impedance. This feedback technology effectively cancels the byproducts
of negative feedback, thus creating an amplifier circuit that gives you all the benefits of properly
implemented feedback, but without the drawbacks. Newly designed PrimaLuna wide band low loss
output transformers designed to handle more difficult speaker loads. A 2 Ohm tap is included in
addition to the 4 Ohm & 8 Ohm taps. As with all PrimaLuna amplifiers, the ProLogue Six comes
standard with Adaptive Auto Bias, fuse protection, and soft start circuitry for extended tube life.
Specifications:
Power: 70 Watts per channel
Frequency response: 20Hz – 85kHz +/- 1dB at rated power; 11Hz – 120kHz –3dB @ 1W

PrimaLuna ProLogue Export Info
Sonic Nirvana somtimes comes from gentle nudges...
At PrimaLuna, we have the experience to know that there is no product that is “perfect” for
everybody. That’s why we have our exclusive Adaptive AutoBias that allows the customer to finetune
the sound of any PrimaLuna amp by changing to a HUGE number of different tubes, with
absolutely no need for the tubes to be matched, or biasing once you put them in.
Getting that last 10% of performance does not have to mean spending five or ten thousand dollars
of upgrades. It can be a matter of a gentle nudge or a small tweek that can lead to sonic bliss and
the feeling of “Ahhhh….this is right”.
The PrimaLuna ProLogue Eight CD player already hit the home run. With reviews from around the
world and statements like “Indeed their latest ProLogue Eight "hybrid" CD player drops a real
bombshell on the traditional CD player competition.” You can see it is something special.
But every person and every system is different. With 99% of the CD players on the market you are
stuck with what you bought. Not so with PrimaLuna. One, in a way you would expect from us, that is
changing out a couple tubes and taking advantage of a
huge color pallet available to you.
The other, a way not seen in any other CD player
available anywhere. Simply turn the CD player over,
remove the bottom, and pop out four chips, then plug in
one of our special Super I/V op-amp kits.
The Super I/V Board incorporates a new type of op-amp that to our knowledge, has never been
used by any audio manufacturer before (as far as we
know). For Euro 100,- you are going to get:
• Slew-rate upgrade from 13 to 100V/uS
• 50% noise reduction
• Bandwidth upgrade of a factor 10!
The Super I/V Board Plus for Euro 150,- (pictured
below) also installs bypass caps and
power supply caps, so with the increase of speed,
detail, and quietness you get above,
you'll also get a prettier “picture”.
