The RP-5 Pre-Amplifier is Rogue Audio’s first preamplifier based on the ground-breaking new RP-X platform. Silky smooth yet extraordinarily high-tech, the RP-5 sets a new benchmark in performance and functionality. Utilizing four 12AU7 tubes in a mu-follower configuration, its computer optimized circuitry boasts outstanding sonics as well as industry-leading specs.

The RP-5 does not just offer sonic excellence; with its numerous features, it enhances your listening experience far beyond your imagination! The on-board MM/MC phono has user adjustable gain settings ranging from 40 to 60 dB. A wide variety of loading options means your favourite cartridge can be configured to sound its very best. A tube-based headphone circuit offers smooth and detailed sound for your late night personal audio sessions. Other features include home theatre inputs, a processor loop and mono button. The ten button remote allows you to conveniently access volume, balance, selector, mute mono and on/off from your listening position.

The elegant appearance of the RP-5 is enhanced by its easy-to-read VFD display that provides volume, balance and source information in large yet subtle characters.
