Proceed AVP-2+6 Preamplifier / DAC / Surround Processor by Mark Levinson - Legendary Pre/Pro [Expired]


no longer for sale

      Proceed AVP2+6 Audio Video Preamplifier / Surround Processor is the famous trickled down version of the $30,000+ Mark Levinson No 40 Media Console under Mark Levinson's own Proceed brand. Given its level of audio performance and high-quality Mark Levinson heritage, it was considered to be a bargain at its full retail price.

      This is the highly-sought version as it is an original AVP2 (not upgraded from a previous generation AVP) and it originally includes the +6 multi-channel input option which makes it relevant and future-proof giving it the flexibility to accept any new high resolution multi-channel audio formats via analog connections from any decoding source. 

      The unit has been meticulously maintained in excellent condition and without any issues/repairs or modifications. It is conservatively rated as 8/10. Please see the attached pictures. 

      It comes in its original packaging and double-boxes with all its original contents and accessories. (remote control, power cord, manual) The original boxes will come inside a third box to protect and preserve the original boxes.  

Here is a link to the online manual. Hard copy is included in the box. Taken from one of the links below:
"The hardware and software algorithms that are used in the Mark Levinson Nº40 are duplicated exactly in the Proceed unit. The eight channel AVP2 currently decodes dts, dts-ES, Dolby Digital, THX surround EX, and MPEG-2. HDCD, PCM digital sources up to 24/96, Dolby Pro Logic II, and Madrigal’s own stereo surround decoding are available for two-channel sources."  

Here are a few links for information on the unit. 
      My obviously subjective and brief opinion is that this is a very natural and organic sounding unit unlike the cold and soulless sounding units found in abundance. It features a stereo by-pass mode which allows it to function as a high-quality pure analog preamplifier.      

Here is one of the many discussions/threads available praising this unit.

Thank you for your interest.
