    Hi Guy's,

    Which processor would you choose to partner with mackies LCR.
    I am 70/30 in favour of movies.
    Shortlist:

    Meridian 568 (Balanced front three, although kit is oly max 2m away)
    Naim AV2 (Dinn to ??? xlr/rca)
    Proceed avp (balanced front three, movies will probably be a weakness)
    Lexicon MC1 (again)
    Other under £1200.

    I have to leap to the defence of the Proceed.
    When I conducted listening trials it was, in my opinion, better than the AV2 on movies, with better detail, and better sense of 3D soundstage. I also had a brief listen to the Meridian, and did not feel this added anything to the proceed. I did not hear the Lexicon, as I was put off by its poor rep on music.
    I know I must sound biased, but this was honestly my opinion, and incidentally, the opinion of one of the guys at Grahams, when we demmed the Proceed against the Naim

    Looks like two AVP's are going to be up for sale.

    Thanks for heads up anyway.

    In case anyone was wondering, I'm buying that 568.2 for a mate. Having owned one myself I can say it is undoubtedly a fantastic processor. But overall I do have a slight preference for the AVP, and the only thing that I'll replace it with is an AVP2! So my AVP won't be going up for sale just yet. :)
