If you read my Rogue Road Tour, you’ll have read about their new hybrid vacuum tube amplifier, the DragoN. I figured this news was worth pulling out of the Tour for more visibility. Why? New Rogues don’t happen every day.
The DragoN (Capital D for class D and capital N for Ncore technology) is an interesting circuit. There are two 12AU7 phase splitters at the input and they are included in a small feedback loop from the OEM Ncore output modules. This forces the amp to test and behave like a tube amp yet put out about 500 Watts into 4 ohms.
