Let your ears decide for you.

Now if you can't hear them it's a different story....

Could not have said it better. Though I will add that I sold Adcom, and at the time, and probably still now, for great sound, price, and performance, they are hard to beat.

But kennyt is right, enjoy the process, and pick a winner. Jerry Del schooled me on Emotiva. They make or build products for some of the big boys. So, listen, and decide.

Now I'm wondering if I did my homework. I just purchased a used Aragon 2005, later I saw the internals on some websites and they indeed do not look like they were built nearly as good as the older Aragon amplifier models. Did I infact buy a Mondial Acurus for $500 more dollars than necessary? and for just a fancy blue lighted panel? Can anyone vouch for the sound? - and please don't give me a bunch of meaningless adjectives. God why can't buying decent equipment be made simple. I assume things would be simpler if we could all afford to purchase Conrad Johnson stuff all of the time. Hey, maybe Obama will give us all some free Shindo stuff because we were tricked into buying things that were sold not as promised???

I consider Paul Rosenberg (ex-Co Founder of Aragon) as one of the best people in the business....

their amps were some of the best you could buy for the money.

So if you do have issues (not likely they were also reknowned tanks) you can always contact Klipsch (who bought Aragon).
yes, that's right
