Re:6550 vs KT88


First of all what pre-amp are you going to use? This will make a greater difference then changing the tubes in the 88!!

The Rogue 88 is a great tube amp for the $$. Changing the 6550 for KT88 will give you a warmer midrange and softer but airy highs. This is at the expense of a decrease of deep bass (in my experiences). The brightness of this amp and the preamp come from the silver coated copper internal wiring used in these units. I changed all the internal wiring in the 88 to Kimber wire and have noticed a more warm & detailed sound.

Haven't heard the Parasound so I can't comment.
