    Looking to complete the final bit of my Home Cinema Set - up. Processor, what I want to know is, has anybody out there bought a Lexicon Processor direct from the USA as somebody told me you might get massive savings compared to buing it in this country, especially with an expensive Processor like the Lexicon.

    Hi,
    Don't forget about import tax,
    On something expensive like a Lexicon you'll definately have to pay it (It's about 30% more on the price paid including postage costs).

    There was an explanation of the UK pricing on SMR-Forum by CSE the UK Lexicon distributor. When you add all the import duty and taxes it actually worked out dearer than the UK price and there would also be no warranty. They were probably basing it on the recommended prices though. Not sure what the street prices are in the states but go for it if you think you can make a good saving.

    Check the input voltage of the US model, it might not cope with 230V!

    I think they are all dual voltage I know the DC1, DC2 and MC1 definately was so I cannot see the MC12 being any different.
