B&K AV 125.7 or Aragon 2007

I am picking up the B&K from a co worker tomorrow. Was wondering what people might have to say about this amp.

Good. Bad and ugly.

I will start with it in 2 channel and see if I like it better than the Parasound 2250 v2. If I like it I may use it to power the whole 7.2 system. It would be fed off a Yamaha Aventage RXA1050 (best reciever I have owned and I love it).

Right now the Yammy is powering the surrounds and overhead Atmos speakers. Have an Adcom bridged on the center and the mains on the Parasound.

Saving some space with 1 amp vs 3 would be a bonus.


There is also a Aragon 2007 local for sale. Any input on this one?

    Aragon is a great brand and great amp.

    The 125.7 is an excellent amp. What are you paying for it?

    I'm only giving it a trial to see if I like it. If I do we will talk about price. He seems a little hesitant though.

    Listening to this B&K and have to say this is a nice amp. Imaging is fantastic.

    I'm going to have to look for one to buy now. My co worker said he wont sell it. :(

    And this is is the open under a ceiling fan with nothing on top. And at TV volumes.

    Dont think mine (200.5) ever runs that hot. I do have a cooling fan on top of it, more for my piece of mind that needed.

    That's not right. I have both the M200's and the AVR 307 and even driving them hard I can put my hand on the cooling ribs.
