Does the Rogue Cronus Magnum III have any real competition in its same price point of $3k?

If so, what is it? (new and tubes only please.)

Sfar:  So you were ok with the amp being 20wpc?? You didn't  miss anything compared to the Rogue?
the raven has 20wpc.  the rogue has 100wpc.
Jay:  I have the JBL studio 590 and an old pair Genesis APM-1s that i thought I would sell, but decided to keep.
i was just reading the "stuff" on the raven website.  they're claiming their 20wpc amps are the equivalent of a high quality 100wpc solid state amp.  that's quite the claim.
I used to have the 60wpc primaluna monos in a much smaller room than what I have now. I had them paired with APM-1s. That was a long time ago. I don’t know if 60 watts will be enough now, let alone 20 watts that the Raven has to offer. I’m trying to get the most tube power out of 1 unit, since I do miss the sweetness of tubes, but not go over $3k.  The units suggested look good, I just don't know if they'll work for me.
