I have never heard them, but the Rogue preamps have a very good reputation. I have heard the Rogue 88 amp, and it offers great sound, I would expect the same from the preamps.

There is a Canadian company, Space-Tech-Lab, that sells direct. They are GIANT killers in my opinion. They are point to point wired and they can build to suit your needs.
Outstanding value and priced right. Call Albert he is the designer and builder of these tube amps. They also offer a 30 day in home trial.
I also agree that you should give a Rogue 66 a listen. There is one for sale right now on audiogon (centurymantra member). I used a Rogue 66 for about a year and loved it and then decided to move up to the Rogue 99. The Rogue customer service is outstanding which is another reason I recommend a Rogue pre. Good luck in your search and let us know what you decide on!
A used Kora Eclipse betters anything mentioned here so far. It offers fabulous resolution, holographic imaging & well defined soundstage; smooth extended highs. deep tuneful lows and mids that are as palpable as anything I've ever heard.
Like all Kora gear it also has an intangible quality -- an ability to bring the essence of the music to life.
The Kora looks very interesting I will have to do some more research on this model.
I have another question. There is a Rogue 66 for sale now for 600.00 no remote or mangum upgrade. What if I purchased that unit and liked it could I send it back to Rogue Audio for the remote and Mangum upgrade. If it doesn't work I could just sell it or should I just purchase one new. I don't think Rogue Audio offers a 30 Trial period.
