    LIMITED TIME SPECIAL - FREE REMOTE CONTROL - LIMITED TIME SPECIAL - FREE REMOTE
     

    MY TAKE: Established in 1996, Rogue Audio has a well-earned reputation for quality and performance. Their products have received rave reviews and awards from the audio press worldwide. We especially appreciate the fact that 100% of their products are proudly crafted right here in the USA. - Galen


    Rogue offers a wide variety of full tube and tube hybrid electronics. From cost effective integrated amplifiers, starting at just $1295, to their flagship Apollo monoblock tube amplifiers at $11k, Rogue likely has a product to satisfy most any audiophile need and budget.


    Build quality is first rate. The construction quality and fit and finish is impressive both outside and inside - the photos don’t do justice to the products.


    Internally you’ll find a neat and tidy layout with wire looms properly dressed, high quality boards and component parts. Analog fans will appreciate the fact that all three integrated amp models include a phono input for MM cartridges.


    The Sphinx v2 Hybrid Integrated is one of the most popular units in the Rogue line. One listen and you’ll know why. This unique hybrid designs combines the qualities of tubes with the practicality of solid state. The tube input stage offers the harmonic fullness and refinement associated with this topology while the solid state output stage delivers high power and plenty of current to drive virtually any speaker with ease. Recent upgrades have further enhanced performance and include:

    -Significantly lowered noise floor
    -Improved phono circuit with 6db additional gain (same as in Cronus II)
    -Improved 1W headphone circuit
    -Mute function added to the new “skeleton” remote
    -Updated faceplate
