ive heard good things abt the Aragon but havent listenend to it. has anyone experienced their paradigms with Aragon ?? would love to hear abt their experience.
I have a pair of Studio 20v3s. When I first did a home audition, with a pair of demos, I tried them on my Aragon 8008BB amp, using a Rotel HT receiver as a pre/pro. Very dynamic with quick bass, the highs were a little too much with certain intense movie scenes, but I think that had to do with speaker positioning, and my room.
Right now I use the Aragon on a pair of Maggies,(for music) and use the Rotel receiver amps on the 20s (for movies). Much different sound, rolled off highs and sometimes muddy bass, and less dynamic. But more of a "forgiving "sound for crappy video material.
Now I have a question for you. I plan on getting a CC-570 center this month. Had you done any comparison between the 470 and 570, as far as which one matches better with the 20s?
After I get my 570 center, I will see how the Rotel drives it's sealed cabniet design. I may stick with Rotel or upgrade to all Aragon, or maybe Anthem. I would like to add EQ to all my front speakers, and can not do that with my present Rotel receiver (no "main-ins").
If the present Klipsch made Aragon equipment is built like my older Mondial made unit, it is good stuff.
