What else to know about the Proceed Amp 2?

"I have used a Proceed Amp2 for about five years. I wanted a high quality amplifier to get the best out of my B&W 801 series 80 loudspeakers, and of the amps I auditioned at a $2K price point (I also tried very good-sounding ones from Classe and ARC ss) this one sounded the best. As I settled in with this amp, my appreciation for its virtues increased steadily. I have long since concluded that this amp is bulletproof, always musical, totally reliable, and produces no extraneous sounds whatsoever (no hums, clicks, or hissy-fits). It has been very easy to live with and has never given me the slightest problem. It requires virtually no warm-up; sound quality may improve very slightly in the first five minutes after turn-on, but its stand-by mode keeps it ready to listen to all the time. This amp is neutral and very musical to my ears. The B&W 801s are not an easy load to drive, and they are quite revealing, so I would suppose that the Proceed Amp2 could partner well with virtually any loudspeaker.

On the downside, the status indicator, an amber led, does not always let me know clearly whether the amp is in standby mode or turned on. This is due to the varying light levels in the music room. If the led changed color instead of just changing brightness, it would be an improvement. And I would prefer to have a toggle switch instead of an on-off button. These are very minor misgivings!

I position the amp on a Target floor stand with Black Diamond Racing Cones, which seem to focus and clarify the sound.

I intend to keep this amp for many more years to come." - AudioAsylum, Recycler27
