    I’ve had my ears on one. Solid amp.

    I ran an 8008 Mkii for years. Still have it, sitting idle now. My new amp is superior but cost a heck of a lot more. The Aragon never lacked for power and I was always happy with the sound. No disappointments.

    What's the new amp that took it's place?

    I always like their sound signature...

    Those and Ayre I've always had a soft spot for.

    They are solid amps, wouldn't pass on one for a good price. Last time I heard one, thought it was a bit more favored to the bottom registers.

    I'm rocking it in the mezzo now, thunderous bass with a smooth top end

    How is the 8008x3 sound/quality compared to the Aragon 4004 mkii? Anybody know?
