PrimaLuna Prologue 3 preamplifier and ProLogue 5 power amplifier

Whether you prefer KT88s or EL34s, this power/pre combination “offered a lot of sound for the money.” Well-executed and flawlessly assembled in China, the ProLogues produce “great sound and are very musical,” and they even perform well in otherwise spendy systems.
