Proceed by Mark Levinson PAV Theater Processor / Stereo Preamp

$1,199

If you desire a system with some theater functionality, but you're also focused on two channel audio performance - this is your ticket.

Designed by Mark Levinson, the audio performance of this unit is fantastic, along with a simply gorgeous industrial design. 

Have a look at the high quality and assortment of audio connections on the back, including balanced XLR.  Mated with our two and three channel matching Proceed theater/stereo amps, it's hard to beat this system at this price range. 

While the video switching included is outdated, you can always connect your video sources direct to your TV and use the PAV2 as the audio processor/preamp.  

Just engage the stereo bypass function and this turns into a fabulous preamp.

An excellent match to the Proceed AMP2 and AMP3 currently listed on our website for a very capable 5 channel home theater setup.

Some light wear marks, but otherwise working perfectly. 

Includes the original Proceed full functioned remote, and a power cord.

Our Testing Process for Preamplifiers at SkyFi:

We start with a visual inspection of all internal components to make sure there are no signs of stress or aging. Capacitors are checked for telltale sings of bulging or leaking, resistors are checked for signs of overheating or cracking, and transistors are checked for signs of stress or damage. Special attention is paid to the power supply which is the most common source of failure for preamps. We then power up the unit and run a simple 1k sine wave while monitoring the low voltage output on an oscilloscope for signs of distortion or noise to get a baseline.

At this point we will lubricate and clean all switches and potentiometers (that are not sealed) with a high quality contact cleaner, and then re-test all functions for any signs of noise or scratching.

Final testing involves putting actual music through the preamplifier We have learned over time that some issues are only noticeable to a trained ear while listening to a familiar source material. Our test bench has reference vintage Kef speakers that we are super familiar with which will quickly reveal any discrepancies. Some preamps will then move into the listening room where they will be tested with our in-house reference system.
