The New RP-5 v2 Preamplifier Shipping Monday August 14, 2023

Rogue is proud to announce the new RP-5 v2 preamplifier. The new RP-5 v2 borrows world-class award winning technology from the RP-7, RP-9, RH-5 and Triton II. The volume control uses technology from the RP-7 and RP-9 making it quieter and giving it more steps for finer control. The phono stage is directly derived from the Triton II that makes it the best phono stage ever in a Rogue preamplifier. The headphone circuit incorporates technology from the RH-5, and with both improved sound and power, it will get the best performance from even the most difficult to drive headphones. Other upgrades include an OLED display for better contrast contrast and an optical rotary encoder for smoother volume knob operation Complete specifications and pictures are available on it's product page.

Beginning Monday April 3rd Rogue Audio is proud to ship the new DragoN Monoblock amplifiers. With the great reception the Stereo DragoN amplifier has received Rogue was looking to make a statement. These amplifiers gracefully blend brute power with musicality, finesse, accuracy, and stunning dynamics.

Tube Update for models that use power tubes March 6, 2023

As you are probably already aware, the ongoing conflict in Ukraine has seriously constrained the flow of KT-120 power tubes. Fortunately each of the Rogue Audio amplifier models that use power tubes runs fine and sounds great with KT-77s, KT-88s, KT-90s, and 6550s. Months ago we established reliable sourcing from a vendor we have trusted for many years for quality KT-88s. Starting today the following amplifiers will begin to ship with KT-88s as standard equipment:

Atlas Magnum III
Cronus Magnum III
ST-100 and ST-100 Dark
M-180 and M-180 Dark

The KT88’s sound terrific and have only a negligibly lower output than the KT120’s.
Our small signal tubes (12AU7 and 12AX7) are sourced from the Czech Republic so there are no issues regarding our hybrid amplifiers or preamplifiers.

New Cronus Magnum III Review in The Absolute Sound December 2022 - Named Product of the Year!

The Rogue Audio Cronus Magnum III was just reviewed in the December 2022 Absolute Sound. Since its introduction almost 20 years ago the Cronus has evolved and improved through multiple revisions. Whereas the Cronus has always been a great value and a customer favorite, the Magnum III has really elevated the performance and value equation. Reviewer Wayne Garcia says, “Actually, it's won me over for a second time, as a decade ago I was likewise highly enthusiastic about Rogue's original Cronus Magnum. But as good as that version was the latest iteration punches several levels above, thanks to a slew of tasty upgrades.” He continues, “This amp is musical; it rocks; it's fun; and lo and behold, it isn't tweaky. It's warm sounding but not fat; it's airy; it's resolution is plenty satisfying. It is simply very, very good.

Stereo 100 "Dark"

November 1st 2021 will mark the official introduction of the Stereo 100 "Dark" power amplifier. Based on our award winning Stereo 100 amplifier, the new Dark version features power supply modifications, upgraded coupling capacitors, PRP and "Nude" vishay resistors (in critical spots) along with upgraded Cardas binding posts and RCA jacks. Also included are premium small signal tubes to bump the performance up to an even higher level. Now you can finally have the DNA of our flagship Apollo Dark monoblocks in a simpler stereo package.


Pharaoh II

Based on the critical success of the DragoN power amplifier, we have spent much of the past year redesigning the Pharaoh integrated amp to achieve a similar level of performance. The power amplifier section has been upgraded to incorporate the more powerful and more accurate Hypex N-Core modules with output power increased to 250WPC. The MM/MC phono section has been upgraded for lower noise and improved sonics and the headphone amplifier has been redesigned around our popular hybrid MOSFET design. With an updated line stage and all new buffer stages, the Pharaoh II has raised the bar for what a true high end integrated amp is capable of.

Ares II Phono Preamplifier

At Rogue Audio we truly love vinyl and to that end, we are always looking to improve the performance of our vinyl rigs. the new Rogue Ares II circuit board has been further refined to extract an even higher level of inner detail while also significantly lowering the overall noise floor. Based on customer feedback, we have also added a mono switch. With three gain levels and a variety of loading options, the Ares II will further enhace your vinyl experience and will allow for an almost unlimited selection of cartridge choices.

New DragoN hybrid amp

Rogue Audio is honored to announce that The Absolute Sound magazine has awarded our new DragoN power amplifier the solid state Amp Of The Year award. The DragoN has been designed around the Hypex NCore NC500 amplifier module (hence the capital N in DragoN) and replaces the formidable Medusa. The unique circuit design is based on our proprietary TubeD technology which integrates the tube input stage into the Hypex output stage to provide outstanding tube sound yet with a remarkable 300Watts of power. And with its cool operation and no regular tube maintenance, the DragoN is an exceptionally versatile amplifier that can be used in virtually any high end application. Microprocessor controlled, the DragoN features smart turn-on sequencing as well as sophisticated protection circuitry to detect overcurrent, a short circuit, and DC at the output. The new DragoN is priced at $3,995 retail and is shipping now!



The Cronus Magnum III

The new version of the Cronus Magnum features several significant and exciting upgrades along with a new triode/ultralinear switch.

For vinyl enthusiasts the phono section has been completely redesigned for mm and mc cartridges. Two gain settings provide for 45dB and 60dB of gain so you can now use either high or low output cartridges. The phono also has five individual load settings so you can fine tune the phono for optimal results.

A Triode/Ultralinear switch allows for on the fly switching between Ultralinear operation and pure triode. Ultralinear offers the most power and a commanding grip on the bass while triode provides a slightly softer and more romantic sound. You choose which works best in your setup - maybe both!

A completely new headphone circuit is based around MOSFET buffers capable of massive current sourcing. The design is basically a simplified single ended version of our RH-5 headphone amplifier and puts out enough power to drive the most difficult headphones for clean crisp personal audio.

The line stage has been improved and has an amazingly low noise floor for a completely black background for your listening.

Finally, a beautifully machined aluminum metal remote completes the Cronus Magnum III.



The RP-7 is named The Absolute Sound preamplifier of the year!

We are proud to announce that our newest preamp, the RP-7 has just been named the preamp of the year by TAS magazine. This is a truly gratifying award from one of the most important audio publications in the world. Thank you TAS!

The all new Triton II is simply a terrific sounding phono preamp and is a bargain at its price. With its large variety of loading options, the Triton's flexibility and high performance make it suitable for virtually any phono cartridge and system. The completely new circuit design offers improved sound, better dynamics, a significantly lower noise floor and higher overall gain (70dB). Because of its ultra low noise floor the Triton II excells with the most difficult cartridges. We have also added a user selectable rumble filter and an external mono switch to the new design. The MSRP is $1,295 and the Triton II is available now!
