Home Amp/Preamp Asylum

Looking for a new Amp or Preamp? If you're after tubes, post over here.

Thanks . . .

The RP-5 is burning in nicely, and I'm not hearing anything that would suggest microphonics or vibration problems. But I'm in my total system vibration control phase now. ;-)

The Mullards opened up with great bass and midrange very quickly (after about 6 to 8 hours), but for awhile they had what I would describe as a hard treble and a twangy sound with some guitar and piano music. Those two issues are mostly gone by now (entirely with digital and mostly with vinyl, which might just mean I need to adjust the load setting for the cart). Paul at Goodwin's said to ensure 72 hours of playing time before any "critical listening" and I only have about half of that on it now.

As far as the remote, I agree with you. It's chintzy looking and feeling. BUT, I am so thrilled to have a full feature remote that works so well and a tube preamp that is so quiet (not just during operation but on turn on and turn off as well), that I can't complain. And I like the fact that it keeps the price lower. That said, if they offer an upgraded remote in the future, I might get it as a present to myself!

Oh, and sorry to hear about the ill fitting case top. Have you considered asking Rogue to send you a replacement?
"If you are the owner of a new stereophonic system, this record will play with even more brilliant true-to-life fidelity. In short, you can purchase this record with no fear of its becoming obsolete in the future."
