    as some of you may know i have been looking for a reciever, i have finally made up my mind and am getting a lexicon mc-1. this is now set in stone so i would rather have no comments on this for or against. however i have would rather have my query discussed. i am a little confussed about the triggering part of the beast! and the manual doesn't really give many clues can anyone shed any light on this in the way of an explaination.
    i ask as i would like to use a mains relay board, (something like this http://www.electronic-kits-and-projects.com/kit-files/3xxx/3084.pdf) to turn on and off a power supply for some active speakers. i know that the lexicon uses a 12v trigger i would just like to know if this is possible or any ideas oterwise?
    cheers

    Hi me_too

    The MC-1 does indeed have a 12V trigger designed for powering up associated power amps.

    I can't see why the 12V trigger couldn't be used to power up the active speakers via some kind of mains switcher.

    It's a while since I had an MC-1 so I can't remember if it's configurable in software like the MC-8/12.

    I suggest you give Lexicon's distributor in the UK a quick call to clarify - CSE 01423 359054
