The Pharaoh has also been completely updated with all new boards based on the DragoN power amplifier design. The Pharaoh II uses the Hypex N-Core modules and generates 250 WPC into 8 ohms. The Pharaoh II also features an improved phono section, headphone amplifier, and line stage.

Rogue Audio’s new Pharaoh Hybrid Integrated Amplifier with remote is a no-compromise approach to an integrated amplifier. It truly is a one-box, high-end solution that our own audio expert Chad Stelly gleefully calls his “desert island” integrated amp — a single piece of hardware that’s the Hi-fi Swiss Army Knife you’ll count on for superb playback.

An integration of a double-triode ECC82 (12AU7) tube section into the amplifier combines the best of both solid-state and tube technologies and supplies a smooth, natural sound that normally only tubes provide.

“In his circuit, which he calls ‘tubeD,’ (Rogue Audio’s founder and engineer) Mark O’Brien claims there is none of the dreaded edginess, grain, or etched sound of Class D amplification in the past. And I gotta say that, much to my delight, I pretty much agree with him.”Garrett Hongo, The Absolute Sound, Aug. 15, 2013
