    Well, I guess it was time to spend some $$$ So I decided to go from my 4 month old B&K Ref 30 to a Lexicon MC-12. I'm really looking forward to playing with this one. Are there any tips for setting up the MC-12? One good thing about the Ref 30 is that you could do the setup via software on your pc connected to the unit. That way you don't have to use the on screen menus. Does the MC-12 have anything like that? Also, can anyone suggest the best place to sell my Ref 30 other than Ebay?
    Thanks [​IMG]

    Jack- I'm envious. [​IMG] The MC-12 is what I would get if I could afford it. (I'm getting the Logic-7 bug!)
    Quick question: I'm not as familar with their products.
    DC-1, DC-2, MC-1 (I think) ?
    If I just wanted DPL, DD, DTS, which one should I look at? (5.1 analog inputs would be nice too.)
    (I'm thinking I could get a good deal on something now, that I couldn't afford when it was new...)

    You should be able to pick up a used mc-1 for around $2500.
    Try http://www.audiogon.com/
    The MC-12 is the only one with 5.1 analog inputs.

    Lexicons are reletively easy to set-up; the menus are pretty intuitive. You can download the MC-12 manual from the Lexicon site to give you a head start on getting ready for your new unit. The SMR site is a good one for Lexicon info. Have fun.

    Regards,
