I was wondering how the headphone outs of the Rogue Audio 99 and the SF Line 1 compare. I've read that the Rogue 99's headphone out is fed directly from the 6SN7 tube stage, while the SF Line series are fed via opamps.
I've read that the remote of the Rogue 99 sucks while the one for the SF Line series is awesome.
Also can anyone comment on a comparison of the "signature sound" of SF and Rogue gear, or even these two models in particular? Trying to look for more forward, Grado-like sound. Both the Rogue 99 and SF Line 1 can be had for ~$1000 used. I'm also considering the AES-3 and Rogue 66 for line-stage only. Thanks.
