    This thread is for Kevin Brown. I'll list my separates after he lists his....that is, if he has finally decided what his separates are [​IMG]

    Please list your amps and prepros. If you are using a receiver as a prepro or semi-prepro, please list it. If you are using a receiver only and NO power amps, please start another thread and refrain from posting here [​IMG]

    Denon AVR2700 as a pre-pro (for f-c-r channels)
    Parasound 855A 5 channel amp (using only 3 channels)

    So I guess nobody has ever compared this Denon as a pre-pro to the Outlaw 950??? (See my thread from a few days ago.)

    Ricky - You're too much! [​IMG]

    Lexicon MC-8
    Proceed BPA 2
    Proceed AMP 5

    But I also still have in da house:

    Bryston 5B-ST (3 channels)
    Bryston 8B-ST (4 channels)

    Acurus A200
    Acurus A200x5

    And I *still* might keep the Acurus amps (I like them *that* much) either with the Lexicon, or to regain "balance" in my system, swap the Lexicon for a Rotel 1068 (or something). But ... I'm also looking for an MC-8B too (to regain "balance" with the Proceeds; I like them too!). Or maybe the new Anthem D1 or the Integra RDC-7.1. Or maybe I'll get rid of it all, and get a $500 receiver. [​IMG] (See here: http://www.hometheaterforum.com/htfo...hreadid=197458 )

    Back to the topic of the thread...

    Here's my 2 cents for Kevin.

    Keep the Proceeds & Acurus. Sell the Bryston

    Sonically, the Bryston ST is slighty better than the Acurus less the power.
    The Proceeds are equivalent to the Brystons just more warmer. The BPA/AMP combo has more power than your ST combo.

    If your Bryston were SST, thens thats a different story.

    If your planning on 2 systems and you want 1 pre/pro with balanced, I would say sell the MC-8 and get an MC-1 for the Acurus.
    Then get a pre/pro with balanced for your Proceeds(ie. MC-8B).

    I wish I could afford all your equipment.
    Just let me know if you would like to donate some to my cause or lend them permenently to me.
    I would be glad to pay you at least shipping

    Kevin,

    Keep the Proceeds! You can sell the Brystons to get your money back. If you like the Acurus so much, then you should get a better rack and go after Aragons [​IMG]


    Here are my separates:

    - Aragon Soundstage prepro with 7.1/DPL2 upgrade (1200 used plus 800 for the Aragon upgrade)
    - 3 Aragon Palladium II monoblocks for front 3; 125 watts in pure Class A and 400+ Class A/B into 8 ohms (2200 used for all 3, retail 9000)
    - Aragon 8002 125x2 for rears (550 used)
    - Citation 5.1 100x4 for rear center and passive subs (500 used)
