We want you to take a moment, please,
to take a close look at what you're getting for your hard-earned cash.
Looking at the picture above, you'll see some of the finest point-to-point wiring and assembly available at any price. Why point-to-point wiring? It's the way it used to be done when cost was not the #1 priority back in the 1950's and 60's. It's much less expensive to stuff circuit boards instead of the fine finishing you see here, but the benefit is obvious. Point-to-point wiring is more dependable, easier to service, and you have less of a chance of large problems, like circuit boards cracking.
The number one reason for point-to-point wiring, is that it sounds better . It gives your amplifier a soul, its what McIntosh and Marantz did back in the hey-day of hifi, but had to stop doing because it requires skilled craftspeople and time. Now there are some companies that still have point-to-point wiring. The best ones being Cary and Atma-Sphere, but these are hardly products that everybody can afford. There are also some products that are less expensive that have point-to-point wiring, but the workmanship is shoddy at best.
That's why we want you to look carefully at how these are made. Look at the ceramic stand offs, where wires are joined, at the perfect solder joints, and superb machining. We're very proud of how this product is made, and especially proud with how it produces music.
All Mystere amplifiers feature an exclusive dual mono Adaptive AutoBias circuit. The control board for both channels is pictured above. The genius of this design is tubes do not have to be matched, and there is no bias adjustments needed... ever. This makes the Prima Luna a joy to own and operate.

The Adaptive Auto Bias board actually improves the overall sound quality and performance. At full power, distortion drops by over 50 percent! No other manufacturer offers you this kind of build quality, performance and convenience anywhere near this price. In fact, we can't think of a product that does what the PrimaLuna does at ANY price.
