Haven't heard Aragon, bit I can heartily endorse the Anthem AVM20. Nice piece of equipment.

Both are great processors. I have owned both and I have to say that if you need more flexibility the AVM-20 wins hands down but the Aragon has better sound overall
and especially for two chanell music. The AVM-20 is also kind of plain looking while the stage one is probably the best looking pre/pro out there.
I have the Stage One. I think the Anthem is also a great unit, but haven't owned one. The issue with the DB-25 cable is simple. I bought one from Onkyo on line for $10 including shipping. The RCA cables can otherwise be the same. Great 2 channel on everything-CD, SACD, Satellite digital music, phono. Programming is easy. You have to like the Pronto remote, though. Easy setup for surround parameters. Good luck!
