Up for auction is a Rogue Audio Sphinx V2
hybrid tube integrated amp. I am the original owner and it was purchased from a Rogue Audio dealer.
The V2 improves upon the original Sphinx in several key areas including a significantly lower noise floor, remote mute function, upgrade to the Cronus II phono stage and an upgraded headphone output: http://www.rogueaudio.com/New.htm#Sphinxv2
Reviews of the original Sphinx in Stereophile, The Absolute Sound, Part Time Audiophile and others were all excellent and the V2 update only improves upon the original formula.
This unit is in outstanding condition. I can't find anything that makes it any less than a 10/10, but just in case your eyes are better than mine I'm rating it a conservative 9/10. I've been using it in my pet free, smoke free home office.
