Hi there, I own a Lexicon DC-1 and while it still produces some of the best surround sound audio I have heard (DTS especially) I would like to upgrade to a pre/pro that offers decoding of the new lossless formats. I see Lexicon only builds the $12K+ HD processor now that will decode the newer formats. I am looking more for ~$5K but with the same excellent Lexicon sound quality.

I see there is a new Outlaw pre/pro coming out soon and many people recommend the NAD and Marantz gear. My use is 60% movies and 40% 2-channel music, so sound quality is the priority (a two channel bypass mode like the Lexicon would be awesome). Thanks for any suggestions!

Lexicon dropped the price on the mc12hd to 8k a while back. I have had a lexicon dc1 a denon 4311,but stil prefer my 5 year old mc12hd, for sq, L7 processing
and ease of use.
