Un-"Official" Rogue Sphinx V1&V2 owners thread
The Rogue Sphinx Integrated Amp. Made in the good ol' U.S. of A!!
I've had mine for about 4 months and am absolutely loving it! I have yet to roll the tubes, but I have found the overall sound to be amazing. Goldilocks would love the sound. Not too warm, not too cold. Nothing's lacking, nothing added. It's just right. Audiophile sound is rarely this affordable.
The phono stage sounds sweet (if a little quiet) on my V1, so I'm using an external phono preamp stage which has adjustable loading and gain buttons to boost the gain while listening to records. The line stage is amazing on this amp, and the headphone amp sounds great too.
Mine came with a home theater bypass as opposed to fixed level "Rec Out" RCAs.
My phono preamp is in one input. Blusound Node 2i is in input 2 for listening to Tidal MQA, acting as the DAC for my TV audio signal and for accessing my ripped digital files. And my Sony Blu-ray (I use for CD/SACD and "Blu-ray Audio" HiRes discs) is plugged into the third.
I use Energy RC-70's with an Energy subwoofer (using the preamp output) for speakers... and they pair extremely well with the Sphinx in both tonal quality and wattage. Revealing but not clinical and sterile. Sweet sounding but not coloured or warmed. What's there in the source is there in your ears! Synergy, defined.
Who else? Tube rolling experiences? Speakers you're pairing with it? Sources?
I'm a fan. You?
