Proceed PAV Audio-Video Preamp & Processor, with Remote!
Proceed was an offshoot of the ultra-hi-end audio manufacturer, Madrigal, back in 1995. Affiliated with, and designed by the same crew behind Mark Levinson's iconic hi-end components; the Proceed line was intended to provide an incredible and affordable price point with performance far exceeding the investment.
The Proceed PAV is a slick-looking and feature-rich audio/video preamplifier and controller. Although originally designed for the early-90s burgeoning home theater and surround sound needs, the PAV is right at home as a 2-channel stereo preamplifier. The front panel is incredibly easy to use and well laid-out. No on-screen menus to worry about. No fancy HDMI programming or digital synching. It's all analog and all fantastic!
Another ridiculously cool feature with the PAV is the amazing remote control that comes with it. It's like a primitive laptop launch control. You feel like you are sending rockets into space with this thing!
Acoustically, the PAV has solid punch, plenty of versatility, and excellent clarity.
