  2. Where we are now: The site is back up and running! The character set encoding issue has been fixed so old posts should now look ok. I am currently working on themes/skins etc and I will be deleting the temporary green skin very soon as it has many issues. I will do a very quick variation on the stock blue skin first just to get a light-grey background and san-serif font, and I will set this as default. Later this week I will hopefully add a professional third-party skin in pfm colours (life is way too short to do this crap myself, and I've found one I really like than needs next to no tweaking). We are getting there slowly...

I ask as I’m getting countless bounce errors as the server fails to send notifications through etc. I’ll eventually figure out how to send these to a black hole somewhere, but it makes sense to address it at source as quite a few folk are obviously not getting the thread and conversations notifications they have set in their preferences.

    I had a Prologue Two for a good few years and liked it a lot. I ran the Prologue with EL34s rather than the supplied KT88s as I seem to prefer them as a tube. The Prima Luna responded very well to tube-rolling too, I ended up with some nice tubes in mine.

    Have a prologue and use EL34's also but they have autobias and will take KT88.s 90's and 120's +6650's. Great amp for the money. Quality is not at Jadis level but excellent amp and well worth getting

    I have a Dialogue. I am not sure how old it is, it was owned by several forum members before me I think.

    It's built like a tank as is the supplied remote control.

    I have used it with both EL34s and KT88s into Tannoy Berkleys which works really well. I prefer it with EL34, the KT88s give a more muscular sound.

    The previous owner didn't think the amp was as good on more complex classical music. My tastes are more jazz, rock and pop but I noticed it a bit. I swapped the small rectifier tubes for some good Mullards and for me it resolved this issue.

    Overall I think it's a great amp and testament to that is that my Naim 252 and Olive 250 lie idle!

    Had the demo yesterday- very,very nice amps heard the Dialogue HP and Prologue Premium, and am in the process of a home loan with PRologue Premium ( Dialogue HP extra power not required as it turns out) the Dialogue Premium was unavailable to listen to yesterday, so have to decide between the Prologue and Dialogue there is a believe a bit of a price hike between the two amplifiers, l have been advised that the Dialogue has a bit more grip and control, can anybody chime in?:)

    interesting thread for me - i was considering the Prima Luna as well. The Prolog Premium falls in my budget and not the Dialog HP.

    I am also looking at the Trafomatic Experience Elegance Integrated amp.

    Do update this thread with your listening experience of the Prolog premium integrated

    regards

    Had the Prologue Premium at home for a week, sounded lovely at the demo, however in my listening room, it did not do enough for me to warrant a purchase:(, quite laid back (EL34 trait?), sounded good though and the finish and build quality was really something, bummer but l will stick with the amps l have at the moment.

    Thanks to all those who replied.:)

    Have you considered an audio research integrated amp?

    Not sure what your budget is, but the latest VSi75 using KT150 tubes is supposed to be fantastic. Maybe you could pick one up an ex demo or second hand.
