Rogue 99 Magnum Preamp Line Stage with Remote [Expired]


no longer for sale

Rated 8/10 due to a tiny nick on rear edge of left side of the facepate and some minor inconsistency in the finish of the top (only visible in strong lighting). The remote is in good condition with just a couple of tiny flaws. I've had this unit almost a year now. I bought it on audiogon. In this price range, I just haven't heard better from a tube unit. Detail retrieval and imaging/soundstaging are very very good as is the extension at the frequency extremes. This unit was borderline class A in Stereophile. The only design flaw I see is the crappy little unbilical cables/connectors used between the outboard power supply and the main unit. I had trouble with these and finally replaced them. You'll notice the Supra Lorad 2.5 power cord has been hardwired from the power supply to the board. Not only did this eliminate the issues of broken connections, I think it noticably improved the ease of sound out of this unit. But, it sill just never sounded as good as I thought it should. And there was a reason for that. I sent the unit to Rogue a few months ago and a few weak parts were replaced. Now the unit sounds really good and I am asking myself why I am selling it. But as always, I am trying some new gear and so this unit needs a new home. Nick from Rogue said he was impressed with the Supra power cable hardwire job I did and that it probably lowered the noise floor. This unit comes with the original, box, packaging, remote, 4 Herbies Audio Labs Ultrasonic RX-30 tube dampers, and 8 6sn7 GTB tubes as described below: A matched quad of GE 6SN7GTB made in Canada by General Electric, made in Canada. These are black plates. They test strong and have nearly matched reading. They test very strong. Test 80/77, 86/80, 83/90 & 78/90 2 Sylvania phone grade 6sn7 GTB Chrometop 2 Sylvania made (Philco) phono grade 6sn7 GTB I recently tested all 8 tubes in the preamp, they are all quiet and sound very good, but please note I don't have a professional tube testing machine and I cannot guarantee the performance of the tubes.
