Anyone have experience with cinepro pre/pro's? Also, anyone know if the new stuff is any good or comparable to the MC 1 or AVM 20?
Damn! Their amps are certainly not "cheap" to me!
Camp: I'm with you. Isn't this pre/pro gonna cost almost $4K? Also, you can usually get a $4K pre/pro for just above $3K, but not so with Cinepro gear. If they say $3900, it sells for $3900 plus shipping. That's certainly not cheap to me, although for those with a budget starting at $5K, maybe it is... :rolleyes
"There are only so many ways to design a face plate!!!"
Is that really what he said? Because that is clearly the exact same faceplate (and probably whole chassis) as the MC-12. Deny it all you want it's the same thing.
If he didn't expect people to notice they could have easily designed their own.
Still, this is not a knock on the Cinepro. I'm sure the guts will deliver.
I thought Cinepro's reputation was better than John let on.
I dont think John meant to call their reputation into question. I believe he simply feels that they are not given the respect they deserve because of their relativly low price. Their amplifiers seem to compare favorably with others costing much more and may be overlooked by buyers and reviewers with their noses in the clouds. I think Outlaw suffers the same fate to a degree as does Earthquake(the Cinenova at least, because it is not pretty to look at)and some others.
