Proceed made good stuff. Mark Levinson affordable line. I think those ps have to be at least 10 years old. I do recall they rarely got hot at the highest frequencies.

There are more than a handful of [op amps] that sound so good that most designers want to be using them as opposed to discreet transistors. Dave Reich, Theta 2009

The new Acurus and Aragon lines from Indy Audio Labs -- it could be argued -- have filled in the void left by the departure of Proceed. I view them as the goldilocks of high performance made-in-the-USA amps and preamps...not crazy expensive...not cheap...just right.

As Pete says, these new IAL lines punch far above their price points.

Acurus is just crazy value but Aragon is authentically high end equipment. The Iridium mono block amp stands up to anything I have heard at even 5x the price.

The Titan is an awesome amp. What is it you want to know?

Been very happy with it. Drives my Confidence speakers wonderfully . Never gets hot to the touch. Class A first 5. Balanced XLR if you choose. Great looking etc etc Just a great multi-channel amp.

I've owned the Aragon 4004,4004MKII,8002,8008ST,8008BB,8008ST three channel amp. Have they been able to improve the amps or is the sound about the same? Great amps for great prices in the past. The price has raised, naturally since, I was buying the amps. Lastly, didn't someone at the company lose their life in some kind of weird home explosion? Was that person a major player in Indy Audio?

Never become so involved with something that it blinds you.
