For the first time, I auditioned a pair of Paradigm Reference Studio 100s run through a Rogue Perseus tube preamp & a Rotel RB1080 S/S power amp. Prior to that, I have never auditioned a tube preamp. Wow! What a difference! A richer, more integrated sound with the Rogue Perseus compared to S/S alternatives. Now that I am hooked on tubes, a few quick questions:
(1) Would there be a significant difference if I went with a tube power amp as well?
(2) Compared to the Rogue Perseus, has anyone had any experience with the Rogue Metis preamp?
(3) In addition to the Rogue Perseus, are there any other tube preamps that are recommended?
