The MX134 is a very good pre-pro. I had one and traded it in for the MX135. The 135 offers a better processer chip but the 134 offers much the same performance that I beleive will exceed many of todays pre-pros in the priice range it is sold as used. The reasons I traded was the LED lighting vs. bulbs and the processor chip as well as the upconversion of the video signal to component. Now the 136 has preplaced the 135 and offers HDMI but I am waiting till I buy other stuff first.
