Im looking to possibly purchase the above processor, ex demo. I currently run a lexicon DC1 processor which i have had for 5 years but feel it lacks a little in the 2 channel music mode, although it blows me away with its AV capabilities. Does anyone out there have a Meridian 561 and better still, been able to compare with a lexicon of some description, ideally a DC1! For info, i use it with a 5 channel primare amp, Celestion A series speakers all round and a Kef AV1 filling in below 40hz. Your experiences would be gratefully received.
