The Cronus Magnum II is now shipping and features a host of upgrades over the original Magnum. To begin with, we added 6 dB of gain to the phono section and improved the sound with an additional stage of regulation. The variable outputs are now buffered for better subwoofer performance and the headphone amplifier has also been improved. A mute function has been added to the remote control and the overall noise floor has been significantly lowered. Please visit your authorized Rogue Audio retailer in April to audition the Magnum II for yourself!
Vacuum tube audio amplifiers have long been recognized by the audio community as providing significantly better sonics than solid state transistor-based designs. Unfortunately, well designed vacuum tube products are much more expensive to produce than their solid state counterparts. As a result, this superior technology has only been available to a small but fortunate group of audio enthusiasts. Enter Rogue Audio.
Our amplifier designs combine the finest in tube-circuit topology with meticulously engineered circuit layout to achieve superior performance. Unflagging attention to the integrity of the audio signal path and power supplies results in truly superior designs. The most discriminating audiophile will delight in the impeccable fidelity of recordings reproduced through our amplifiers.
The Titan series of products presented us with a significant engineering challenge; to create truly high end products at entry level prices. We believe we have succeeded! The Titan series offers outstanding performance and build quality that is accessible to almost anyone with a love for great sounding music. Entirely hand built in the USA, the Titan products are assembled to the same exacting standards as our most expensive amplifiers. Since their introduction last year they have won numerous industry awards.
