Rogue Audio


With a perfect blend of a silky tube sound, an incredible level of detail and transparency, the new RP-7 redefines what a reference-level preamplifier can achieve.

The RP-7 is Rogue Audio’s first balanced preamp designed on the groundbreaking RP-X hardware and software platform, and every aspect of the RP-7 design is aimed at maintaining near-perfect signal integrity. In addition to the computer-optimized circuit topology, all capacitors, resistors and other critical parts are of ultra-high quality, ensuring the highest sonic integrity. The sophisticated electrical design is based on pure class A tube amplification with MOSFET output buffer, to provide enormous potential along with super low output impedance.

In addition to the excellent sound, the RP-7 provides all the features required of a high-end preamplifier. Included are a home theater bypass, processor loop, mono knob, slow start circuit and a variety of other features. Two pairs of XLR-balanced inputs and three pairs of RCA line inputs provide ample options for connecting multiple sources, while two pairs of XLR-balanced outputs along with two pairs of RCA variable outputs enable a wide range of outputs. Also included is a high power tube-based headphone amplifier capable of driving even the most difficult headphones.

The attractive industrial design includes an easy-to-read OLED display that further enhances the preamp’s elegant appearance. The display provides all relevant information in large easy-to-read blue-tinted characters. The ultra-high quality tactile buttons and knobs further add to the RP-7’s exclusive feel.

the abso!ute sound

Reproducing this in a high-end stereo system that contains the RP-7 makes “Gypsy Eyes” sound even cooler, mostly because this tube preamp is reproducing the sound as it was meant to be heard

Enjoy the Music

It was dynamic. It delivered exceptional transparency along with extraordinary weight and body. It played with a relaxed, organic tone enhanced by only the slightest touch of burnished tube glow
