The review by Herb Reichert ---Stereophile magazine
“I believe that Rogue Audio’s RP-1 will join the ranks of such preamp folk heroes as the Dynaco PAS, the Hafler DH101, the Conrad Johnson PV3, and the NAD 1020 – and the Apt Holman, The Supraphon Revelation Basic, and the Audible Illusions Modulus. All of those are moderately priced, high-performance models that countless audiophiles have used to step up from receivers or integrateds to separates.
However, the RP-1 was more effective than any of those classics at preserving the a recording’s vital energies. I believe that the RP-1 is not necessarily a stepping stone on the way to something better: I see it as a fully worthy final destination.
Compared to any preamplifier I know of at anywhere near its price, the RP-1 reaches deeper into the music to excavate a stronger, more precise, more spacious musical presentation. Most important, it delivers music that lives.”
