The preamp had an inner resolving power that established a sense of dimension and space so specific to each image that I was almost able to isolate each player visually, as if I were attending a live concert.

“The RP-5 relays the finesse of “Stairway To Heaven” as well as $10,000 preamps I have auditioned. It is just musically right right with no omissions, or tonal additives that spoil the music’s essence.”

Rogue Audio’s RP-5 surprised me. I found it a fundamentally neutral and wonderfully musical preamplifier that would easily be at home in an all-tube system.
