Based on the critical success of the DragoN power amplifier, we have spent much of the past year redesigning the Pharaoh integrated amp to achieve a similar level of performance. The power amplifier section has been upgraded to incorporate the more powerful and more accurate Hypex N-Core modules with output power increased to 250WPC. This model replaces the previous Pharaoh.
The MM/MC phono section has been upgraded for lower noise and improved sonics and the headphone amplifier has been redesigned around our popular hybrid MOSFET design. With an updated line stage and all new buffer stages, the Pharaoh II has raised the bar for what a true high end integrated amp is capable of.
The Pharaoh uniquely combines solid state power amplification with tube preamplification to deliver amazing dynamics as well as the organic midrange and sweet top end that only a tube amp can provide.
Made in America - priced right in Australia - drives Magnepan beautifully.
When Rogue began development of the Pharaoh amplifier they had one overarching goal: The realisation of an integrated amplifier that, without compromise, would offer the performance of the finest separates. To that end, the Pharaoh uniquely combines solid state power amplification with tube preamplification to deliver amazing dynamics as well as the organic midrange and sweet top end that only a tube amp can provide.
Along with truly outstanding sonics the Pharaoh boasts numerous features including a tube headphone circuit, mm/mc user adjustable phono, home theatre bypass, remote controlled volume with mute, and a processor loop. The Pharaoh is truly a "one box" solution to all of your amplifier needs.
From a technical standpoint, the all important preamplifier section utilises a pair of long plate 12AU7 tubes configured in a mu-follower topology. Large coupling caps and a host of exotic parts ensure that the audio signal is preserved perfectly during this critical stage of amplification.
A huge linear power supply is then used to deliver energy to the solid state power amplifier section. Designed around the highly regarded Hypex OEM modules, the amplifiers provide seemingly unlimited power and dynamics.

Our amplifier designs combine the finest in tube circuit topology with meticulously engineered circuit layout to achieve superior performance. Unflagging attention to the integrity of the audio signal path and power supplies results in truly superior designs. The most discriminating audiophile will delight in the impeccable fidelity of recordings reproduced through our amplifiers. The matchless quality of Rogue amplifiers is obvious at first glance. However, Rogue’s quality is not just skin deep. Ultra-high tolerance components, two-ounce copper circuit boards, and silver plated switches are just a few of the many features which separate Rogue products from the competition. Our amplifiers have also been designed to be extremely reliable. Electronic components are rated far beyond their intended use, and only the highest quality components are incorporated into our designs. The rugged chassis are treated to resist scratching and corrosion and the machined aluminum faceplates are anodized to protect their appearance. At Rogue Audio, we believe that a truly great performing amplifier should dress the part. And from the heavy aluminum faceplate and knobs to the gold connectors in the rear, Rogue amplifiers speak to the audiophile’s aesthetic sense. Our expressive appearance is the brainchild of world class industrial designers who have created a perfect unity of form and function. The sophisticated styling and elegant lines of our amplifiers are intended to please the upscale tastes of high-end devotees. High-end amplifiers typically command stratospheric prices. Rogue Audio was founded on the belief that great amplifiers can be designed and manufactured at affordable prices. Our amplifiers are engineered using a quality-by-design philosophy, and every one of our components is hand assembled and tested by highly skilled technicians and engineers. The confidence we have in our products is evidenced by a generous warranty that is certain to please today’s quality-conscious consumer.
