The Rogers High Fidelity EHF-100

Sound Representation’s affable Jon Zimmer introduced me to the Rogers High Fidelity EHF-100 integrated amplifier ($6000), which was driving a pair of Totem Element Fire loudspeakers.

The 100Wpc EHF-100 is a push-pull, class-A design. It uses two EF86, two 12AX7, and four KT88 tubes, and offers four analog inputs. The overall build-quality seems outstanding with gold-plated Furutech binding posts, stainless steel hardware, hand-wired circuits, and a lovely hand-applied lacquer finish.

The EHF-100 is gorgeous and hand-made, one amp at a time, in New York.

Looks good. What did you think about the Sound Quality? Did you get a chance to audition? Approx. how much does it cost?

Sorry, I'm losing my mind.  The amp costs $6000, and it was driving the Totem Element loudspeakers.  The system seemed to favor speed and clarity over inner detail and decay, but I can't attribute those qualities to any one piece of the whole.

Stephen/Moshin:  I am listening to the Rogers High Fidelity EHF-200 model right now, and the sound quality is simply superlative.  I am spinning LPs through a Benz Glider cartridge, RB301 tonearm, Basis 2001 turntable, Audia Flight Phono Pre, via B&W Nautilus 800 speakers.  The sound quality is fast and detailed as Stephen notes, but I also have lots of hall atmosphere and decay too, esp. listening to live music (Diana Krall, Allison Krauss, and various classical).   I know Roger socially and this guy really knows what he is doing; he is an ex-GE engineer.  The EHF-200 bests - by far - my previous pre/power amp reference combo - a Conrad Johnson CT-5 coupled to the VTL MB 450 II monoblocks.  At a third of the price.  Stephen, if you ever want to make the trip up from Jersey City to hear the amps in person, just let me know.  I am about an hour away.
