    Your inputs will be greatly appreciated. I am stuck between getting Proceed AVP-2 which is discontinued or Aragon Stage One Preamp. Any thoughts? Thanks!

    How do you feel about the possibility of slow/non-existent service for discontinued products?

    What kind of price are you getting the two unit for?

    I've owned the Stage One for just over a year now. It's a great 7 channel processor. Works flawlessly for me. And looks beautiful to boot. The only pieces I might consider other than my Stage One would be the Lexicon or Krells 7 channel units. And I'd probably take the Krell form what I've read from owners. It's a really sweet piece of equipment. Both pieces are over $4000 I think and the Stage One can be had for less than 3K I think.

    Plus the resale price of the Aragon should hold up better than the Proceed I would think. Unless Aragon goes out of business too!
