8008: 200W dual monoblock amplifier

the basis of a superior performance 2-channel system, or an exceptional front or surround channel amplifier

The flagship 2-channel amplification from Aragon, the 8008 is our latest Dual Monoblock Amplifier.  The next generation of a long line of highly successful 2-channel Aragon amplifiers, today's 8008 drives the most demanding stereo setup with ease.  It also provides seriously capable pairs of channels for world-class surround setups.

Inside and out, every detail has been precisely engineered to consistently deliver the ultimate in audio reproduction, year after year.  The 8008 is a natural choice to hear what a pair of exceptional-quality loudspeakers can deliver.

Aragon doesn't stop at high performance audio however.  Like all of our new models, the 8008 includes a state-of-the art network technology from Indy Audio Labs called E2C or "Enhanced Ethernet Control".   E2C presents each Aragon unit as a device on the home network which can be controlled and monitored for convenience and reliability.  With an Aragon E2C-enabled pre-amp as a companion, the complexity of highly capable audio separates starts to disappear.

While media standards may change every 6 months or so, Aragon owners can simply sit back, relax and enjoy years of trouble-free service from these highly coveted products.
