    Hi,

    Could any other Lexicon DC2 (or maybe DC1/MC1) owners confirm that left hand side/front of the unit gets really quite HOT after its been on for a few hours or is it something i should worry about?

    cheers

    Gary

    Just warm, not hot.

    MC-1 owner. Have you got a few inches ventilation?

    Just checked my DC2 and whilst the left hand side is noticibly warmer than the right it is not hot. In fact the rear of the unit is warmer than the front. It has been on for over 8 hrs now. I hope this does not spell trouble for you.

    The power supply is on the left.

    You need more than 5mm ventilation though!

    Thanks guys,

    Will try and get something moved out of the rack to increase the top ventilation to the lexi.

    and hope nothing is wrong
