    Hi

    I have shortlisted three processors in my radar which are within my budget.

    A) Lexicon MC 1 ( used )

    B) Anthem AVM 20

    C) Tag Maclaren AVR 32

    I have been dreaming about owning a Lexi since CP2 days. But the current AV pre amps now are much more featured packed that you could be really spolit for choice. I will have the chance to audition the Lexi and Tag here to further help me. I have a 5 X 200w amp and will be adding a 2 channel once I get a processor. And my room size 12 Ft X 21 Ft.

    Your comments will be helpful.

    Many Thanks

    DexS

    the big thing here is the upgrade path, I think tag has the best, they have a proven record that is one of the best. I'd go for a tag, they give full credit to the upgrade of a 192.

    Depends on you criteria.

    For HT, the Lex is probably the best bet since it has a DD/DTS alternative, which is Logic 7.

    TAG is a good choice too, since it is a cut above the AVM-20.

    I would recommend a pre-owned Meridian 561 or 565 if you are really into music since it has some really good multi-channel music modes.

    If its HT(dvd)your into..
    and you can do a 7.1 speaker set-up..
    then get the MC-1..
    L7 is still the one every company is trying to best,IMHO...
    as far as upgrades,if the MC-1 was not traded in before, there will be an upgrade(trade in)on the Baby MC-12[​IMG]next year or so..
    have fun,
