Rogue Audio RP-7 Preamplifier
With a perfect blend of tube smoothness and an almost unbelievable level of detail and transparency, the new Rogue Audio RP-7 Preamplifier essentially redefines what a reference level tube preamplifier can achieve.
The RP-7 is Rogue Audio's first balanced preamplifier designed on the cutting edge RP-X hardware and software platform and every aspect of the RP-7 design is aimed at maintaining near-perfect signal integrity. Beyond the computer optimized circuit topology, all of the capacitors, resistors, and other critical parts are of ultra-high quality assuring the highest sonic integrity. The sophisticated electrical design is based on pure class A tube amplification with MOSFET output buffering to provide a huge drive along with a super low output impedance.
Beyond the excellent sound, the feature-rich RP-7 provides all of the functions demanded of a luxury hi-end preamp. Included are a home theater bypass, processor loop, mono button, defeatable display, slow start circuitry, and a host of other features. A full-function remote provides additional convenience. Two pairs of XLR balanced inputs and three pairs of RCA line-level inputs allow for numerous source components while two pairs of XLR balanced outputs along with two pairs of RCA variable outputs facilitate a wide range of output connectivity. Also included is a high-power tube-based headphone amplifier capable of driving even the most difficult headphones.
The attractive industrial design includes an easy-to-read OLED display that further enhances the preamp's sleek and elegant appearance. The display provides all relevant information in large easy to read azure tinted characters. The ultra-high quality tactile buttons and knobs further add to the exclusive feel of the RP-7.
