Bottom Line:   
Part 1: Comparison: Primaluna Dialogue One to Primaluna Prologue Two

My previous experience with Primaluna is the Prologue Two. I have been very happy with it after swapping the Primaluna KT88’s for Siemens EL34’s. Since my preference was the EL34 tube sound (mostly for jazz, with vibes, keyboard, vocals), I purchased the Dialogue One, an EL34 based amp. Current speakers: Energy RC-10 w/Polk Audio PSW-111 subwoofer and Energy RC-30 speakers.

Prologue Two: Whether using the EL34 or KT88 tubes the presentation is very open, airy and intimate. Like being at a live performance with the performers 10 feet away. You’re drawn into the music. Less detail captured. Bass is not as defined, with the midrange and highs emphasized. Good soundstage.

Dialogue One: A more accurate interpretation of the recorded music. Able to capture more detail within a recording. Better bass control with more impact. Performers are easy to identify their location within the soundstage. The presentation is more laid back with either EL34 or KT88 tubes, like the performers are 20 feet from you.
