ROGUE PREAMP

pearsall001pearsall001 Posts: 4,362
I'm think about giving some "Tubes" a try. I have an opportunity to pick up a new ROGUE RP-1 preamp at a great price. From what I can gather it receives stellar reviews. It has a HT Bypass & remote that is just what the Dr. ordered. Does anyone have any experience with the RP-1 or Rogue gear in general. I like that their made local & that the owner is great to work with. Comments, thoughts, other recommendations welcomed. I was originally thinking about a new DAC but I think this is a better move.

    That's a very cool preamp! Go for it! gce posted up some feedback of his RP-5 awhile back: https://forum.polkaudio.com/discussion/167654/rogue-rp-5-review/p1

    Been wanting to try a Rogue Audio pre myself for a bit and especially the newer platform RP-1. I've listened to their stuff many years at AXPONA and find the company's story pretty cool. Some day...

    I have a Rogue Audio Triton phono pre-amp that I love. If I weren't so entrenched in a PS Audio stack, I would probably go for a Rogue stack.

    A local shop here sells their stuff. It seems pretty nice, and I like that it’s made here in PA. Hopefully someday I can check it out. Post a review if you pull the trigger!

    I have a Rogue Cronus Magnum II integrated amp. Very well built. Really like it. Have not had any problems or issues with it.

    I had a couple versions of the Rogue Perseus preamp, and found them to be able performers, but the Pass Labs preamps were a better fit for my amplifiers. I would consider going with a used Pass X1 as an option.

    The RP-1 is ordered in silver. It should be here in a week to 10 days.
    I'm going to stick with the stock tubes for awhile to get the feel for them.
    After that I just might take you up on your kind jesture.
    It comes stock with JJ's.
    What are your recommendations.

    Thanks 🍺

    Well on my system I like the Raytheon tubes but you may not. I've never tried the JJ's so those could be ideal for your likes. PM me when you get the urge to roll.

    I'm a tube head, You will want to get some NOS tubes tubes, trust me! But I think it's a good idea to start with stock so you can get a feel. The amp won't be at it's best till you get some good tubes. Psvane and Gold lion are the only new production tubes I recommend but NOS are the way to go eventually. Enjoy and let us know what you think

    I currently have the Rogue Perseus magnum. It's a solid piece of equipment, it also has a phono input and HT bypass switch. I like the sound more from the Rogue than my old Cary. I also have the RCA cleaptops in it which I find to be a tad bright. I'm looking for another set of tubes that can tame it abit off the highs.

    Looks like delivery is set for Wed 6/17. Can't wait to get 'er set up & get these old crusty ears on it.
    If all goes well my eyes are focused next on the Rogue Model 100 tube amp.
    Things are looking up in tubevile.
