I have not owned Rogue gear, but I can comment on driving the speakers with a tube amp. I drove my Aerius i's with an Audio Research VT-60 and it sounded great. I thought the nasty impedance curve would pose a problem for the tube amp, but even on the 4-Ohm taps it was as loud as my Bryston 3B for the same volume setting on the pre-amp. It sounded better to me than the Bryston, however, because it was more full and smooth. That is just my experience, and others may vary.
