Need a phono stage. ARC LP1 or Rogue Ares?
I'm in need of a phono preamp for my system. My preference is a tube phono, which the LP1 and Ares are. The core of my system is based around an ARC tube preamp and ARC SS amp. I will most likely use the phono pre with a Rega RP series turntable. I have read very good reviews about the Rogue Ares. From the reviews it appears to be equal to the ARC LP1 in overall performance, and beats the ARC with greater feature. My system before recent upgrades consisted of a Rogue preamp and Rogue monoblocks; I know they make a good sounding quality product. But is it better than the ARC?
Any input is appreciated.
