Full-Function Tube Preamplifier with Phono Section and Headphone Jack

The RP-5 is our first preamplifier based on the groundbreaking new RP-X platform. Silky smooth yet extraordinarily high tech, the RP-5 sets a new benchmark in performance and functionality. Utilizing four 12AU7 tubes in a mu-follower configuration, the computer optimized circuitry boasts outstanding sonics as well as industry leading specs.

The RP-5 offers much more than just sonic excellence with numerous features to further enhance your listening experience. The onboard MM/MC phono has user adjustable gain settings ranging from 40 to 60 dB. And with a wide variety of loading options, your favorite cartridge can be configured to sound its very best. A tube based headphone circuit offers smooth and detailed sound for your late night personal audio sessions. Other features include home theater inputs, a processor loop and mono button. The ten button remote allows you to conveniently access volume, balance, selector, mute mono and on/off from your listening position. The elegant appearance of the RP-5 is enhanced by an easy to read VFD display that provides volume, balance and source information in large easy to read characters.

    Rogue hits a home run!


    I have owned far more preamps than I should have. I always wanted to find "the one" but I never really did, and trust me, I spent a lot of money trying. Enter the Rogue RP-5! Like a perfect match from a dating service, I have found a preamp that is as close to perfect as I can imagine. This is a neutral sounding preamp with a hint of warmth but not a thick and overly sweet like tube preamps can be. Not this one! Detailed, light in the upper ranges, a midrange with lots of impact, and tight bass. Overall a highly musical presentation. No need to tube roll either to get the great sound (though I confess I have). An onboard phono section that is good (the linestage is better though) and a headphone section that is good enough for me but in truth, I use 'cans very little.
    The remote does it all, and the VFD panel is easy to see, the volume easy to control. Well built, weighs a ton, and just a great musical preamp that made this wanderer stop looking.
