I have had the Tempest II Magnum and now have a Cronus Magnum. The Cronus is as you describe. The Tempest is a bit thinner. I forgot the name of the guy I talked to at Rogue (it wasn't Mark) when I was thinking about buying the Cronus. He said the Tempest is probably the most solid state sounding amp they build, and that they sell far more Cronus' than Tempests. The one redeeming thing to my tastes about the Tempest was its passive preamp. There was more incremental volume adjustment to it. The remote on the Cronus makes far too big a jump each time the button is pushed. I just turn it manually. Whatever model you choose, one thing is certain, you won't find better customer service than Rogue- maybe some are as good, but none better.
