Check us out: http://newrecordday.com Alright folks, as you know I am all about those little glass globes called tubes and anything analog is right up my alley. Because of this, this room spoke to me immediately. Robert and I discussed our love of old school methods of building gear that not only sounds incredible, but is made to last. I suppose it makes sense that the team from Rogers feels so passionate about this approach that they are willing to stamp a lifetime warranty on their products that is also transferable. Both integrated amps looked like they were equipped with everything you would ever need and enough power to handle just about any load on planet Earth. Toss in self bias, front inputs and a finish that would win awards in a jewelry making contest and you have a real contender in the amp market. The EHF-200 mk-2 really caught my eye with the triode/ultra linear settings and the ability to drive as a power amp using a pre input bypassing front end. Oh, they also toss in a remote control that could alternately be used as a billy club for intruders. These folks have considered everything. Also on deck is the new PA-1A Phono Preamp that instantly won me over with its 50s era retro styling but lets be clear, this ain’t a candy wrapper over yesterdays design. This phono has all the features that modern designs come with such as front panel loading for resistance and capacitance and front VU meters to keep an eye on cart diagnosis and resolution imbalances. Bottom line, Rogers Fidelity has me hooked, line and sinker. I would love to spend some time with this gear and do a full blown review at New Record Day.
