    I want a Lexicon pre/pro mainly for it's Logic 7 mode and high quality sound.

    I don't need:

    1)tons of inputs - I only use a HTPC
    2)DTS-ES/DPL2 or the various other new decoders, Logic 7 is plenty
    3)analog bypass - could care less about dvd-a/sacd right now
    4)component inputs - my projector is RGBHV and I would never run it through an extra box

    Does the MC-1 offer anything above the DC-2 that *I* need?

    The DACs and analog section are identical between the MC-1 and DC-2. If they are of the same software level (v4 is the latest) then the processing between them is the same too. Make sure the DC-2 has both DD and DTS decoding. You could buy a DC-2 at different hardware decoding levels, the MC-1 only came fully stocked for DD and DTS.

    Other then that the MC-1 has more inputs, better video switching, a somewhat different chassis, different display and the expansion ports which can give you a direct to DAC connection.

    ")DTS-ES/DPL2 or the various other new decoders, Logic 7 is plenty "

    A v4 unit has DTS-ES (matrix) decoding as well as THX Surround EX. But with Logic 7 that is what I used most of the time too.
