DC-1 Vs. Proceed AVP

Is the AVP really worth $2,000 more than the DC-1? You can pick up fully loaded DC-1 for 1400 vs. 3500 for AVP. I have heard the DC-1 but not the AVP. Those having heard both please give me your comments, I am 60% HT and 40% music. Thank you. Rick
I agree with Chris. Component out to TV, audio to AVP. I then run main video out from AVP to TV for OS menu. Same with VHS, s-vid to tv, audio to AVP. So while more inputs are being used on the television, video always remains a straight line.
Thanks guys for all your help and comments. This has been a very informative and learning experience. Rick
