Great points. Your point actually reminds me of why the Rogue seems to be the right fit for me. I don’t stream and all the music I play comes from my Oppo, Marantz CD player and my turntable. The Rogue doesn’t have a dac and I don’t really need it to have one. It’s got enough line inputs to support an external phono Stage, which I will buy, and an external dac. I also want more power than what my current Marantz PM6005 is giving me. I think at this point I’ll probably get the Rogue or the Marantz PM8005, as I really like the house sound of Marantz, and they pair very well with Focal.
