    (5 customer reviews)

    The most innovative integrated tube amplifier world wide. A unique Dual Class mode coupled with autobias managed by microprocessor.  All this for an incredible sound performance.

    Description

     

    We announce that the Doge PRIMA DONNA is discontinued and is replaced just for range naming simplification by the DOGE 10 PADC (“PADC” stands for Precision Autobias with Dual Class mode).

     

    The DOGE 10 keep 95% of the features. In order to make a better understanding of our DUAL CLASS mode with simplified it between class A and class AB, and we removed the subdivision between class AB1 and class AB2.

    We also offer upgraded coupling capacitors, the UK Claritycaps ESA type.

      Hello Doge – this is NOT an review !
      I suggest you support your products – with offers of TUBES; that connector for Doge 8 & 9 – we all know cables DO fail in time. And any other item to assure this equipment will continue working in the future.
      What occurs to me and concerns me is the BIAS control board. How long will this last? Can you make this board available? Is there anything you can think of WE may need and is not available here is the United States?
      It seems 211 tubes are very hard to find. I found TWO stores trying to sell the Natural Sound tube for nearly $1000.00 an quad – No one will pay this price – they are dreaming! I know I can contact the company in Hunan – BUT I would place TRUST in DOGE assuring WE can get MATCHED quality tubes.
      Had my Wife talk to someone in China….surprised they do not believe matching is important. Had the same experience with an company selling Treasure tubes in Canada. This problem means WE can not get tubes!
      PreAmp tubes are not an problem, what is needed is: 6CA7 and 211 tubes.

      On a side note – I request an better explanation of the FEEDBACK control on the Doge 9: normal, med/mid and low. I have top of the line Definitive Technology speakers.

      Appreciate your time and hope you like the review. Sorry I looked like a slob when I did the video

      Found the Prima Donna Amp by following the YouTube video done by Oto. I was looking at the Tekton Design Impact Speakers (first Double Impact but my room is small so I didn’t need ‘that much speaker’. This Amp is an excellent match to to the TK Impact Speaker design- the sound stage is amazing, the Amp is so quiet during music pauses it’s almost unreal but the power is there if you want it. Combined with a decent turntable and the music comes alive. Shipping was easy with payment through PayPal. I had a few customer service questions and followed the links – responses were within hours. Overall very satisfied with the system and I’ve recommended this set up to several friends. Well done Doge!

      Hi Marc

      the Prima Donna is fantastic, the burn in done and as you said, it would sound even better!
      my vinyl sounds amazing through the amp, so much more detail in the sound.

      thanks

      Hi Marc,

      I have received the Prima Donna, so far it works wonderfully !!!

      The auto bias is amazing!
      As well, all the other technologies implemented in the unit. Bringing tube technology into 2020 !

      The sound of the Prima Donna 88 is warm and precise. The Tekton Design – Double Impact speakers on Class A setting came alive and really unleashed the beauty of the sound these speakers are capable of producing. The Prima Donna with a nice DSD player and the Tekton Double Impact pair of speakers will sound like a high end system satisfying even the most demanding listener.
