With astonishing accuracy, the Perseus preamplifier reveals all of the nuance and detail previously hidden in your recordings. The deep taut bass and sparkling highs are recreated with surgical precision. A sublimely smooth yet uncolored midrange provides the basis for musical experiences you will wish never to end. Equally impressive are the rock solid imaging and deep sound-stage that provide unparalleled musical presence.
The Perseus is a feature rich preamplifier that includes a four tube line stage and an excellent high gain phono section. The phono section is user adjustable and compatible with almost all of today’s high performance moving coil and moving magnet cartridges. Other features include a home theater bypass, metal remote control, sub-woofer output, auto mute function and a slow start feature to prolong tube life. In keeping with Rogue Audio’s “quality by design” philosophy, only the finest components are used in the construction of the Perseus. Gold and silver abound as do ultra-high tolerance resistors, polypropylene capacitors, gold/ceramic tube sockets and all of the other exotic componentry so important to discerning audiophiles. And to complete the picture, all of these technical features are captured in a sophisticated chassis design that artfully displays the exacting electronics contained within.
