Review: Rogue Audio 99 Tube preamp


Category: Preamps

Musical Taste: Classic Rock, Vocals, Folk, Modern Jazz, Eastern Instrumental
Recordings I use for testing: Jennifer Warnes-Famous Blue Raincoat, Patricia Barber-Night Club, George Michael-Faith, Audiophile Collection -4-various artists, Getz and Gilberto-Girl from ipanema
Important aspect of sound: Non Fatiguing..so that I can have music playing all day long and not feel like I want to sut my system down

What is the worst thing a system could do to turn you off? artificial coloration and overly bright high frequencies.

I have had it for 18 months now. It is truly a wonderful preamp..very fluid..and nice detail... Build quality is OK. Poor aesthetics.

It is a great preamp for the money...and it matches my ARC VT100 MkII very well..I have the home theater bypass model

Great buy...audition it...

and I'm very happy with it. Customer Support is good too.

Associated gear
ARC VT100 MKII POWER AMP, CARY CD303 CD PLAYER, VANDERSTEEN 3A SPEAKERS, KIMBER CABLE SILVER STREAK INTERCONNECTS, KIMBER KABLE 8TC SPEAKER CABLE

Did you like it better than your other preamps listed?
I have heard that they are very noisy, background that is.
Have you found that to be true?
Thank you
