Blissful Sound at a Very Reasonable Price
by Happy Jack
I bought this Rogue Pharaoh amp almost 4 years ago from Needle Doctor and it's the only piece of equipment I own that never gives me "Upgrade-itis." Rogue does the hybrid concept of mixing tubes with solid state very effectively. I had one other hybrid among the many amps I've owned. No comparison. The sound here is very natural. Bonnie Raitt sounds sweet and soulful. Stone Sour has plenty of clear and articulate SLAM. I've owned other more expensive integrated amps, but there is something magical about the sound from this amplifier. Oodles of power and lots of juicy detail. For the price, I believe it cannot be beat. The headphone amp is unbelievable. I listen to more music via headphones than ever before. Very, very happy with my purchase. Highly recommended!
