    Currently using a Rogue Cronus Magnum II in one of my setups. It replaced a Silk Audio MC-100 integrated amp. HUGE jump up in sound and performance.

    I also owned the Cronus Magnum for over three years, the Cronus has got to be one of "Audio's Best Values".

    Roll in some Vintage Glass and this thing will kick your A-Double S.

    Stereophile Rated 'Class A". The same power portion of the Cronus. Will accept about any power tube. They are a steal in the used market.

    Have an Eighty Eight Magnum amp from them that I love! Going to get a Stereo 100 from them one day. That's my dream amp.

    I had a Stereo 90 for a short time and ended up keeping my Eighty Eight. Unless you need the extra power, you might hold on to that Magnum.

    I’m liking this stuff, it seems they use high quality components inside. My phono preamp is pretty simple inside, but holy crap is it sounding good.

    Hey guys wanted to share some pictures. Anyone who owns an Ares may know of the monster death grip the sockets have on the tubes.
    I decided to order 4 movib socket savers from Tube monger.

    Good idea, I will have to look into these. The tube sockets in my Perseus were as you describe, too tight.

    I was nervous swapping tubes as I could see the board flex while swapping. These are also tall enough to allow swapping without removing the cover. I haven’t notice any degradation in sound. I consider them expensive, but weren’t bad for a Black Friday deal.
