Rogue Audio Cronos Magnum II Integrated Amplifier w/ Tube Cage/Cover and NOS Brimar CV4003 (12AU7) Center Pre-Amp Tube. Power Tubes - KT120s. 100 WPC. W/ Phono Stage.

Up for auction is a Rogue Cronos Magnum II in near-mint condition. 9/10 mint (see photos) only because it is used. Purchased from Needle Doctor in August of 2017 with the optional tube cage manufactured by Rogue for the Cronos. Immaculately cared for in a non-smoking home. Estimated play is 15-20 hours/week. Less in the summer months as I’m gone 4 days per week.

Also included is a Brimar NOS CV4003 12AU7 (purchased from Upscale Audio 6 months in) placed into the center pre-amp section. (Original JJ 12AU7 tube (stock from Rogue) also included). The Brimar 12AU7 added a bit more tube richness and a touch of warmth that I thought was missing for my system. This also provided the top end with some very nice air and space. The phono stage on the Rogue is dead quiet and has plenty of love to give as an on-board phono stage. There is a long way to go before needing a separate phono pre-amp. Overall this is a very musical and engaging integrated that has serious slam and just enough tube sweetness. Rogue has the secret sauce in this regard. Plenty of power but never too much honey. As all components from Rogue, the Cronos performs way above its pay grade. If this is your entry into tubes…this is a great place to start. The KT120 drivers are pretty darn bomb proof. Biasing is super easy and completely DIY (tiny screw driver included). I paid $2,710 new complete per above.

I’m selling as I consolidated two systems for relationship harmony. My other amp is the Rogue Pharaoh. I’m obviously a fan but something had to give. Check out the reviews and specs. This is a beast of an integrated amp. Beautifully hand made here in the States. Rogue Audio customer service is outstanding for even just the simplest of questions. Shipping is as much as it is, as the Cronos weighs in at 55 pounds, unboxed. Tube cover will also ship separately in its own box. I will be shipping UPS Ground to the continental US only. I will carefully pack in original Rogue cartons with driver tubes boxed and bubble wrapped, volume/mute remote wrapped, and original Rogue manual included. Happy to answer any questions as to sound and how it worked in my system. No returns, please. Sale is final.
