I need some advice on a potential change in my Pre-Pro.
Here is my situation:
I am close to making a purchase decision on new subs for my HT system. I will either be getting a pair of submersives, a pair of HSU ULS15's, or a pair of DIY subs. That decision on its own is enough to wear me out and is desrving of its own separate discussion.
However, along with the subs I realize the need to purchase some type of bass EQ device. Since my pre-pro is an old Lexicon DC-1 an upgrade has been causing me a bit of an itch lately. I love the logic 7 and what it does for movies. My first choice would be to get an MC-12 with room EQ which would get me a newer processor with the Lexicon sound i prefer, and, an EQ which I am looking to buy anyway.
Here is the question:
Is the latest version of Audysssey EQ good enough that I should consider a pre/pro that integrates the audyssey as opposed to sticking with Lexicon? I really wish they still offered the stand-alone unit that would allow me to stay with Lexicon and utilize the Audyssey room correction. I am concerned I might regret anything besides the Lexicon L7 processing that I have been acclaimated to for nearly 15 years.
I would like to take the money I would pay for a sub EQ and apply that to the purchase of a used pre/pro with a built-in EQ. Does anyone have any experience with Lexicon to be able to offer any comments or opinions? Any pre/pro's out there that you might suggest I consider?
You could try to find a used Audyssey standalone on Audiogon or wait for the new DL2 unit with Dirac Live that will be around the same price as what the Audyssey sound equalizer originally sold for.
That's the million dollar question;)
