This is a 12AU7 Rogue Sixty-Six Magnum Preamp - NON-Phono - Tube Preamplifier. The unit includes a new remote and a Rogue Factory service in February 2021. The unit has been fully tested and factory certified to like-new condition by Rogue. Specifically, they replaced the receiver module for the remote control (new remote purchased and integrated), installed new filter caps in the power supply, and fixed an issue related to the grounding of the volume control.
-The power transformer has been filled with sand, and sealed, to ensure the lowest possible transformer noise.

-Additionally, per a TMR (The Music Room) review, This original top-end Magnum 66 is extended enough to bring out minute details. Transients sound quick and clean, and the timbres of percussion instruments sound natural. The Magnum also has an excellent bass extension, with Bass that is nimble and appropriately quick and articulate. Instruments in the rand don't sound too "tight," but have the correct weight and heft.
Includes (2) New 12AU7/ECC82 electro-harmonix tubes.
