Tekton DI with PrimaLuna Dialogue Premium

Hi Everyone, my first inquiry/post here and a newbie to the topics here. I love to listen to music but I don't have anything close to an entry level audiophile. But I have a good background/experience with analog electronics and a switch-mode power supply designer by trade. So I should be able to follow some technical stuff you can add to your input. My room is close to 10X20 feet. Listens to jazz, rock and pretty much in between.
I will be getting a DI pretty soon and I would like to drive it with a PL Dialogue Premium. If any of you have done this (I'm positive there are some, hopefully) what can you share, positive or not between using the HP and the non-HP versions?

What do you think between the integrated version and the amp version (separates) for this speaker? Does it matter?
Just in case you are wondering why PL, my analog background wants to play on the electronics of this design, got my interest.

Thank you in advance. Happy listening.
I have a PL Dialogue integrated....really like the amp, it has way more power than the specs suggest. BTW, IMO the stock EL34 tubes do not sound harsh at top end frequency extremes as some have suggested. Good luck on your search.
Are You Nuts Man?
You mentioned Tekton! 
Sorry,just getting you ready for the H8R's.
I have a Prima Luna Prologue 5 and enjoy it.KT88's in it now and have some KT120's,6L6 and EL34's to Roll in later
Not too many folks will beat you up for Prima Luna tho..
Had the Pendragons[had to sell in a money crunch]
 and now am running M-Lores[new from the sale this year]
and Lore References[bought used a few weeks ago but they look new!]
Got you, axememan,,,what I'm I thinking,,,well, I got a good welcome not having to hear all that in my inquiry. But I am aware now and not feeling sure footed anymore. But I do wanna hear good feedback with sound backup positive or negative. I'd like to know the truth about the product and not so much about legalities of patents. That is the job of the examiner.

In my job, I encounter stuff like hey you got a good concept there the boss is asking if we can have it patented,,, just shook my head. That is somebody's job. But I'm a sucker for innovators, the outside thinkers, the term they use is the "disruptors". We need them. We all benefited from them except the ones being disrupted. Change is constant.

I really like to know if this design works and not just something new and just fade away slowly. Too bad I have to ask you all who have to spend some money to know the real story. So if ever you are so nice to share to me your experience, positive or negative, with the DI's, I would be so thankful. I agree the outside looks is something to get used to. But if I can hide these statues and just enjoy the sound, I can live with that.

One I don't like to do is repacking anything I just bought. 

back to the PL's so I reckon the integrated version is just as good and can be a savings to spend for something else like a good DAC streamer. I like that. Is this true statement?
For those who were rolling with the HP version, have you tried running two or four less tubes without any problem. So running only four tubes on an HP version, will it work and what was the result.

To those who have the integrated version, is the preamp power supply sharing with the amp? No tube rectifiers? Just regular SS diodes, I assume.

Tuberist, thanks for your input.

I believe the Pendragons do not have this new innovation?

To those who do not want to see posts about Tekton, I'm sorry.
Many folks DO want to hear about The Tektons[me too] there are just some hardcore Tekton Trolls out there.
There are a couple really good info packed threads on the DI's and a few posters have been on the Inside of the DI's.
I would love to have a pair..someday.
I do not believe the Pendragons have the latest innovations.
I wouldn't apologize about wanting to talk about your Tekton Speakers at all.
Some just can not say"the Tektons are not for me" and leave it at that.
Good luck on your journey!
