Let's not beat around the bush, $14,000.00 for a AV preamp that doesn't upconvert to HDMI and support uncompressed multi-channel audio can be somewhat hard to sell when receivers costing a tenth as much are offering more in terms of features. That...

Lexicon MC-12 Preamp/Processor

 

The rumors about Lexicon's new pre/pro have been swirling about for what seems like an eternity. It can do this. It will have that. It may pour you a straight bourbon if you set it up properly. So, it's with no small amount of anticipation that many...
