@tomic601 I agree. I have been told the KT150's make a big difference. I'll be patient I have a number of choices that I have whittled down to QS and ARC. I would only buy the Rouge if I can demo it.

@hshifi You had already suggested the Rogue preamp, I purposely decided on the RP7 as it lets me tailor the sound a bit via tube rolling.I dislike Class D, never heard one I liked. I don't want SS as I already have one I am keeping (for the time b...

@atmasphere i estimate the efficiency at 90db-92db. There are 2 woofer in each cabinet. The woofers themselves are 90db. but with 2 in parallel it is higher but I dont have exact measurements of efficiency. speakers are 4 ohm.

@yogiboy yep spoke to mike, he has a new model called KT mono but he cant deliver due to parts shortages. V4 also toast.

@craig I own an RP7 so I know how accessible Mark and Nick are. Very good company to deal with. I find their stuff a little to much like solid state, i am getting used to it. I did demo the QS and a VTL in my system and it was very good. @elliot I...
