Cool Re: Lexicon MC-12 and high end processors, you pay for the name.

I find interesting that the high end people banned you, How about Classé do they also use other people's board and son on.

I guess they didn't like the fact that you were telling them that they had over paid for their processor

greetings.so what is the bottom line? is the lexicon a "shoot the lights out" HDMI processor? and how does it compare to the halcro..to add to the confusion,why would the mark levinson 502 cost $35 000....this is a lot of money ,when compared to competitive products?

Lexicon makes an excellent processor. If you can get to demo it at a dealer, that would be even better. Also, the Integra DTC 9.8 is a great preamp/processor for the money as well.
