In true PrimaLuna fashion, the stunning ProLogue Classic CD Player revolutionized the audio industry by introducing the world's first tube-based data clocking device: the SuperTubeClock™.
By incorporating a low-noise mini-triode vacuum tube into the digital clock, this boldly conceived design provides vastly superior resolution, detail retrieval, improved clarity, increased definition and detail from top to bottom.
The ProLogue Classic CD Player is a true dual-mono design, right down to the dual vacuum tube rectification - another first in a CD player. The power supply is adapted from the award winning ProLogue Three preamp. High quality resistors, mosfets, and Solen capacitors yield superior transient response, detail, and channel separation.
Point To Point Wiring
You spend a lot of money on interconnects. So why have the signal go right from the RCA jacks or speaker terminals into circuit boards with copper traces so thin you can hardly see them? What’s high-end about that?
PrimaLuna employs Point to Point Wiring on all products. The entire signal path, including resistors and capacitors, is painstakingly hand wired with heavy-gauge cable by craftsman.
An ultra-low jitter clocking device that replaces the solid-state oscillator with a vacuum tube. Yields incredible detail retrieval and dynamics throughout the entire audio spectrum.
Premium parts including polypropylene coupling caps, triple pi power supply filters, custom designed isolation transformers which separate the analog and digital devices, resulting in decreased signal degradation and improved sonics from top to bottom. Many CD players weigh in at ten pounds or less. PrimaLuna CD players weigh 33 and 25 pounds!
Dual Mono Topology
Per channel dedicated tubes. While it is fine to use a single tube as a buffer for both channels and claim your CD player is "tube", it can't be compared to the PrimaLuna design and what it does for the music.
Vacuum Tube Rectified
Vacuum tube rectified power supply adapted from the award-winning ProLogue preamps incorporates eleven separate power supply regulation circuits. Tube rectification is synonymous with organic sound, especially with CD players being known as sounding like "a computer".
