iridium: 400W monoblock amplifier

two Iridiums form the heart of a serious 2-channel setup


The ultimate in amplification from Aragon, the Iridium is our new flagship Differential Monoblock Amplifier.  A natural evolution from its revered predecessor, the Palladium, two Iridiums form the heart of a serious 2-channel setup.

Inside and out, every detail has been precisely engineered to consistently deliver the ultimate in audio reproduction, year after year.  The Iridium is a natural choice to ensure you can hear the best performance a high-quality loudspeaker can deliver.

Aragon doesn't stop at high performance audio however.  Like all of our new models, the Iridium 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.
