I've noticed that there seem to be a significant number of second hand Lexicon MC-1s on the market at the moment. Lexicon stuff when bought new may be very good but is also disturbingly expensive (M-12 on both counts), at least partly (I suspect) because it's made in america and suffers the same sort of profiteering as (e.g.) M&K's consumer speakers. I doubt, therefore, that a new MC-1 could be good enough to justify paying over £5K for. But second hand ones are now changing hands for less than £2K. I nearly bought one the other day, but held back at the last minute because I've never actually had the chance to listen to one to see how it compares with more modern processors. I'm wondering if that was a mistake. I have listened briefly to a Lexicon DC-2, and it actually wasn't at all bad, but I didn't really have the time to form a proper impression.... Has anyone had the chance to listen to an MC-1 side by side with processors like the Arcam AV8, Tag AV32R bp192 and Meridian 568.2? If so, how does it compare? And am I right in thinking that the only significant missing features are DTS ES Discrete and Analogue Bypass, or are there other things it doesn't do as well?
