Rogue's P5 Preamp

For years, I have greeted Rogue's Mark O'Brien with the question, "Anything new in digital?" fully knowing that Rogue Audio is committed to vacuum tube-based analog. This time I asked "Anything new that is not digital?" and Mark beamed. Finally, I had asked the right question and he was happy to show me Rogue's $3500 preamplifier, the P5. This all-new device includes a MM/MC phono stage with adjustable loading and gain as well as a tube-driven headphone amplifier. Modern conveniences include a 10-function remote control and a 2-line VFD display for input selection and volume.

I'm very curious to know what all of the buttons are labelled, and if it has a variable gain switch somewhere.
