system planning
and optimizing
In order to experience the best performance from your
amplifier, the entire system needs to be planned and
components carefully selected to work together. Your
authorized Aragon dealer is trained to be able to help
you ensure your components are selected and matched
to work well together.
5.Well-designed computer-based audio sources
should have isolated grounds in order to avoid
hum and buzz associated with connecting audio
systems with typical digital system power supplies.
Your Aragon dealer can recommend good quality
components that meet these criteria.
6.Systems with cable TV or sattelite source components may need isolation transformers or other
ground isolation devices (such as the Mondial
“MAGIC” box) in order to reduce or eliminate hum
due to ground loops.
The following are some helpful guidelines to ensure your
Aragon amplifier is well-matched to the other components in your system.

design notes
Aragon Performance, Reliability, Value
To experience your music in a given room environment
with true dynamics and at true-to-life levels a powerful,
accurate amplifier must drive a capable set of loudspeakers. Your amplifier needs to deliver the program
current and voltage required by the system without
stressing or straining.
Top end sound systems are expected to fill a large room
with exceptional sound. Too often, the loudspeakers
used force difficult loads on an amplifier (low-impedance
and/or highly reactive). But only the best amplifiers are
capable of delivering a truly neutral, yet superb, musical
experience in such a demanding environment. To meet
that demand, discriminating listeners choose a dualmonoblock amplifier such as the ARAGON 8008 or it’s
bigger brother, the ARAGON IRIDIUM MONOBLOCK.
The ARAGON 8008 is the modern example of the classic solid-state Aragon design that traces its history back
to the early 1990s. To this day it remains a true dual
monoblock with completely decoupled power supplies
and amplifier channel circuitry. Like the original, the new

that few other amplifiers can match, even at multiple
times the price. The 8008 controls virtually any loudspeaker load in an elegant and engaging way.
The ARAGON IRIDIUM MONOBLOCK is a direct
descendant of the highly acclaimed Mondial Palladium
Monoblock. The IRIDIUM stands out for its ability to
deliver a broad and deep soundstage, an accurate
musical mid-range and tight, potent bass response. It’s

with its “V” shaped heatsink.
Aragon Power and Audio Circuitry
When we first embarked on the design of the new generation of Aragon amplifiers, we at Indy Audio Labs asked the
rhetorical question – what would the engineers at Mondial
have designed in 2012 had the company continued to
evolve and grow along with the exciting new materials and
technologies available today? Specifically, what engineering elements of older models such as the 4004mkII,
8008BB, Palladium II and Palladium 1K would benefit
from updates and what elements should simply be left
alone due to their proven performance and reliability? The
answers to these questions provided the core system requirements for the new Aragon 8008 and Iridium designs.

about indy audio labs,
aragon and acurus
In late 2008, Rick Santiago, an engineer, audio product
designer and musician, and Ted Moore, a physicist
and specialist in manufacturing precision semiconductors and instrumentation, founded Indy Audio Labs
(IAL). IAL was founded as a means to realize a vision
for affordable home entertainment products that bring
together world-class audio/video performance, radically
simple control and connectivity, and easy access to today’s digital media content. Indy Audio Labs purchased
Aragon and Acurus in mid-2009 as core technology and
brand platforms for their new lineup of amplifiers and AV
control processors. Since 2009, Indy Audio Labs has
been based in Indianapolis, Indiana and currently has
its headquarters at the Purdue Research Park.
Mondial Designs founded Aragon in the mid-eighties as
a high-value, high-performance line of audio electronics
to compete with significantly more expensive high-end
products of the day. Mondial Designs was based New
York and manufacturing took place at a local facility that
specialized in manufacturing MIL-spec medical and
military products. Aragon amplifiers and associated
electronics incorporated these same stringent manufacturing processes. By the early 1990’s, Aragon had set
a new standard in the high-end audio market for being
22 8 0 0 8 A N D I R I D I U M U S E R G U I D E
able to reproduce dynamic, powerful performances
irrespective of speaker load and at an affordable price.
Many of the original Aragon components produced in
the 1980s are still running reliably and coveted by audio
enthusiasts today.
Acurus was founded in 1993 by Mondial designs as an
even more affordable alternative to its, by then, critically
acclaimed Aragon brand. Acurus components were
known for “high-end” performance and specifications,
minimalist but well-made mechanicals and even more
affordable pricing than Aragon. Acurus was introduced
to serve the specific needs of the specialty AV market
for more affordable made-in-America products to compete with entry-level, foreign-made, high-end products
of the day. Acurus itself means “audio accuracy from
the US” and the popularity of Acurus continues to span
around the globe.
Like Mondial Designs, Indy Audio Labs develops and
manufactures all of its products in the US using proprietary hardware, software and manufacturing techniques.
The same facility that produces Aragon and Acurus circuit boards and assemblies also manufactures devices
for demanding customers in other industries such as
medical, aerospace and military. Indy Audio Labs prides
itself on remaining true to both its made in America
brand heritage and to the high-value, high-performance
promise that made Aragon and Acurus famous.
