    This unit is one year old and in mint shape Featuring the latest audio and broadcast-quality video technologies, the MC-1 Music and Cinema Processor redefines the world standard for serious home entertainment and audio systems. The MC-1 includes Dolby Digital, DTS, a refined version of the proprietary Lexicon LOGIC7 system and will be THX Ultra certified.

    Now with THX SURROUND EX, a backwards compatible enhancement to 5.1 channel decoding that utilizes a matrix (similar to Dolby Pro Logic) to derive 3 surround channels (Left, Right, and Rear a.k.a. Back) from 2 surround channels. The 3 surrounds channels are reproduced through 4 surround speakers (2 side AND 2 rear). Users are advised to place the 2 REAR speakers (which are in mono) behind the listening position, and the 2 SIDE speakers to the left and right sides of the listening position. As most of you are aware, this is also the recommended 8-channel setup for Lexicon processors since '88.

    THX SURROUND EX is NOT a discrete 6.1 channel playback format since it utilizes a matrix to derive the additional surround channel.

    THX SURROUND EX encoding and decoding can be utilized with any 5.1 channel format (Dolby Digital, dts, etc...).

    THX SURROUND EX is only being offered in THX Ultra certified products - initially.
