AURUM Classic Aragon top of the line pre-amp (no phono no remote). In good shape. I've kept this as a "back up" pre-amp, but now it's time for it to find a new home.
Has the top of the line volume pot on it, it feels like silk ! you don't see this kind of quality these days, especially anywhere near this price.
Outboard INGOT power supply. voltage 230V.
The Aurum also has balanced outputs, along with single ended on RCA's.
It has been cared for and comes from a smoke/pet/child free home.
This ia great opportunity for someone looking for a top knotch pre-amp at a very good price.
The Aurum, therefore is a progression or upgrade of the 18K, but housed in the older style chassis and faceplate. It is considered the finest preamp made by Aragon. It came "standard" with an upgraded version of the IPS, called the Ingot. One balanced (XLR) output per channel was also included in addition to the two pair of single-ended (RCA) output jacks. Of course, that meant that the P & G volume pot was standard. All the best circuitry was then installed in the "prettiest" packaging--the 24K-style chassis and faceplate and had a list price of $1750.
The Aragon Aurum is an accurate and high-quality pre-amplifier that boasts numerous features. It has a massive power supply. The pre-amplifier's unique, carefully-designed circuitry allows the user to customize the power supply to the signal path circuitry, and also eliminates crosstalk contamination of the source signal. The Aurum allows for both single-ended and balanced operation, and in balanced mode. Considered to be the finest preamp made by Aragon. The perfect partner for aragon 8008 bb. priced to sell at 600 USD. if sold as a package with 8008 bb ( also advertised ) a special price of 1600 USD for both.
