Rogue Ares Magnum all tube phono stage with a separate power supply and upgraded cinemag step up transformers (top of the line) capacitors and jacks. I upgraded the tubes with (2) 12ax7 gold lions & (2) NOS 12at7 Mullards from the stock jjs to fantastic effect. Low hours on the tubes that were bought from upscale audio (platinum quality for lowest microphony) retail at an additional $300. (NOS mullards $100ea. Gold lions $50ea. ) This phono stage has terrific deep and tight bass great space and liquid mid range the upgraded tubes added bloom and shimmering airy treble Plenty of adjustability for almost any cart. Up to 72 dB of gain by using 12ax7 in place of the 12at7 or less with 12au7. So this is a tube rolling dream and very good for the retail price. Rogue is not slow and syrup it is fast with slam but retains the great space only tubes can provide. The upgrades over the regular Ares especially the best of the Cinemag SUTs really take it to another level where it easily betters many well regarded phono amps in and above its price See GREAT REVIEWS all over the web including a rave by Michael Fremer asking how it can possibly do so much right at its $2800 retail.
Bought new a little over a year ago. Will ship only to CONUS in the original box w all paperwork insured and I’ll cover PayPal @ my asking price. Feel free to ask any questions
