Remember Home Improvement, that 90s TV show with Tim Allen? Every time Tim Taylor—the tool-obsessed family man that Allen played—got a new tool or did something right, he would make guttural, “manly” grunting noises of approval. I’m not sure how to spell those noises, but any quick YouTube search will bring up an episode, and you can hear them for yourself. Another of his favorite catchphrases was “more power!” I bring this up because I’m much the same way when it comes to hi-fi gear: Put me in a room with some great-sounding equipment, and you’ll likely hear low-octave grunts of approval.

“A noteworthy newcomer from the United States, Rogers High Fidelity debuted its new Rogers PA-1A phono preamplifier ($7,100, started shipping last month) at CES, with classic good looks to match the amazing build quality. This phono preamp sets a new benchmark for vacuum-tube phono preamplifiers in this price range.”

“Another room that just blew me away was the Davone/Rogers (not the British Rogers) setup, which was an all-tube/analog system fronted by a VPI Classic 4 with their new 3D-printed tonearm (see analog report for more).”

“Warwick, NY-based Rogers High Fidelity introduced the striking-looking and sounding PA-1A MM/MC phono preamplifier. The pure dual-mono design features discrete, point-to-point wiring and an unusually high S/N ratio for a tube unit, using 12AU7, 12AX7 and 6GH8 tubes with an additional transformer-based 20dB gain for MC cartridges.”

Rogers High Fidelity’s New York-manufactured, aerospace engineering-based system, which included the just-launched PA-1A six-tube phono preamplifier ($7100) (pictured on the right) and EHF-200MK2 KT150-based, 112Wpc integrated amplifier ($15,000), delivered extremely quiet, beautifully warm and lovely sound with Shunyata power conditioning, Kimber Kable, and Davone Grande loudspeakers.

“It’s easy to build a tube amplifier, relatively speaking. I did it in high school electronics class. It played music and buzzed like hell, but it sounded fairly good compared to the JVC receiver my parents owned. There was just something unmistakably yummy about the way acoustic instruments and vocals sounded through my old-school AR speakers that hooked me on tubes forever.

It’s not so easy to build a great tube amplifier, though. I’ve got no skills in that arena. Many of today’s tube-amplifier manufacturers follow one of two paths: rebuild a classic from vintage era (1940′s and 1950′s) with good success, or embrace more modern technology and tubes to produce an amplifier with the best characteristics of legacy and current thinking. Put the EHF-200 MK2 from Rogers High Fidelity squarely in the latter camp.”

It arrived just before I jumped on a plane for the NY Audio Show.  It’s big, red and beautiful.
