Rogue 99 pre vs Kora Eclipse pre

Hi has anybody compared the Rogue 99 pre amp vs Kora Eclipse pre amp? Also how do they compare to the BAT pre amp in the same price line? Does it make any difference running single end vs balanced, because the Rogue is single ended only?

i have never heard the kora, but i owned a magnum version of the 99 a year ago, when i was in preamp-upgrade-mode. i'd definitely get the kora! ;~)

in fairness, the rogue may have fared better if i had shorter interconnects from the pre to my outboard active x-over, or if my x-over's input impedence were higher than 25kohms. serious impedence mismatching took place here... the rogue's output impedence has to be at least 2kohms, not the 100 ohms as stated...
