High end audio companies are frequently born of the passion of one person and the desire to share a new design. What is often missing is the business acumen to bring it to market. Mark O'Brien did what anyone would do after getting a degree in Physics, working designing laser systems and moving on to Bell Labs; he decided to start an audio company.
He set himself apart from many others in the industry by getting an MBA while developing Rogue Audio. It is in large part due to this background that he has leveraged common sense business principles to enable Rogue to manufacture high quality components at reasonable prices while manufacturing in the US.
Not all hobbyists are up to the "care and feeding" required for fully tube based electronics so the fact that they produce both tube and hybrid electronics gives them a broad market appeal. Whether you're a seasoned audiophile or are just starting out, be a little daring...go Rogue.
