Rogers UK announces E20a/ii tube amplifier

  • Having already resurrected its take on the classic LS3/5a standmount loudspeaker, Rogers UK has this week announced an E20a/ii integrated amplifier to power ’em. Per the ‘ii’ appendage, the new model is a revision of the original Rogers E20a tube amplifier that puts a set of 6L6GT tubes (aka valves) on the output of an updated (but still Class A) circuit to net 18wpc into 8 Ohms where a 1kHz signal results in 3% THD.

    According to Rogers UK, the E20a/ii’s non-magnetic aluminium chassis and lid – complete with 18mm thick anodised front panel – minimise eddy currents; its higher quality’ output transformers deliver “increased dynamics and phenomenal bass response” and decoupled PCB mountings “minimise microphonic resonances, improving dynamic response”.

    The E20a/ii will come in two versions: one with line-level inputs and one with an MM phono input marshalled by a pair of 12AX7 input tubes.

    Pricing is TBC.
