I am in the market for a real pre/pro to replace my 898. I originally wanted a Rotel 1066 but the method in which the unit is distributed causes me personal angst ...... which is not, by the way, the subject of this thread. I have come across a mint Lexicon MC-1 v.4 at a very very reasonable price. Does anyone have any experience or opinion on Lexicon's Logic7 processing in this unit or a lessor Lexicon product? Is it as good as or even close to the hard coded 7.1 processing I enjoy today with DTS ES and Dolby EX? I know Lexicon is pretty good stuff but I don't want to take a step back.
