Sitting here contemplating this issue right now.I wish the 8 had the outputs for 3 subs.
If I could sell my MC-1 and only had to pony up an additional $1-1.5k, I'd do it in a heartbeat. Does anyone know if the trade-in price is only good towards the full MSRP or does that vary by dealer? I was told that in the past, the dealer got the full trade-in value back from Lexicon so the dealer didn't really lose anything. If this is still true, there might be deals to be made.
I think it depends on the relationship with a dealer. Some people were able to get the full trade-in value of their MC-1 ($4000) towards the purchase of the MC-12 ($9000), but at a discount on the MC-12's MSRP. So, for some MC-1 owners, the upgrade price was not $5000 but more like $3000.
My dealers (two of them) would not offer $4000 on my MC-1 for trade-in, instead deferring to Lexicon for the trade-in value. At the time, I understood this to be about $2500 for my MC-1. In addition, no local Lexicon dealer was discounting the MC-12, so my upgrade price would have been $6500, a far cry from the ~$3000 some people were able to get.
Has anyone been able to get their dealer to say how much the trade-in cost would be? And when will it go on sale? Thanks
Unoffically they say the MC-8 will be $5995 and $6995 for the balanced unit. I have seen the MC-12 for $6995 why not just buy the 12 if this is the case? The site is a little vague on all the features. I will wait until tthe comparisons and reveiws come out. Steve
Steve, " I have seen the MC-12 for $6995 why not just buy the 12 if this is the case?" That would be assuming you will pay list on the MC-8. If you can get a similiar discount on the MC-8 then it isn't as simple a choice. Shawn
