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 :D

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 :)

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! :)

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. :D (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
:D

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 :)


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)
