For the first time in PrimaLuna’s history they’ve launched a Hybrid Amplifier, an intriguing adaptation of their ever popular EVO 300 integrated amplifier
The brand new Floyd Edition EVO 300 features a valve based pre-amplifier design and solid state power amp section
In their own words PrimaLuna have set out to “Combine valve and solid-state amplification in a single chassis to capture their inherent qualities – the effusive fluidity of valves, the power and grip of solid-state amplification”
Right from the off there’s a different feel about this amplifier to the “all-valve” PrimaLuna models we know and love. It doesn’t take long to spot the obvious visual differences and I especially love the huge crate housing the transformers, two for the pre-amp and one large 500VA unit dedicated to the power amplification
Initial impressions reveal a fast, weighty sound with the fluidity they desired… We’ll run it over the weekend with their EVO 100 DAC and reserve critical judgement until Tuesday!
