keep the RM10 - it's a keeper. Check in with audiogon'er clio09 as to the synergy w/the Reference speakers he may have some experience.

I have owned an RM-10 for going on 20 years and it is one piece I will never sell but with that said the RM-10 is not your "euphonic" tube amp. I have found it over the years to be pretty much neutral as is the case with all of RM's amps. Not sure of the character of your Rogue or what sound you are trying to achieve. There seems to be a lot of Reference 3A fans that prefer the pre-BE version of the DeCappo. I have successfully used the RM-10 with bookshelf speakers from Reynaud, Nola, Fritz and others.
The Music Ref RM 10 was designed by Roger RIP with Vandersteen 2 series speakers. I would lose the Focal box and get a pair of 2 series to experience how great that amp plays music.instead of treble artifacts and port breathing boxes you will hear an amazing time aligned transition from top to bottom. if that room does get heavy get a pair of 50 K vandersteen High pass units 140 bucks installed at the amp.
