I'm selling my old DC-1 (version 2.1) complete with remote and documentation (a User Manual, Version 2 Addendum, and a Theory & Design document). I'm the second owner and have had it 8 or 9 years.

This 7.1 surround processor was pretty groundbreaking in it's day and still sounds stellar after all these years, with its proprietary Logic 7 processing (which really is amazing) plus THX, DTS, etc. and a host of processing "effects" like Pro-Logic, Panorama, Nightclub, Concert Hall, Church, Cathedral, TV Matrix, etc. The 'full' THX Dolby Digital model ran $4495 way back when, though the base model was MSRP $1995. It's great for straight two-channel pre-amplification, too.

Regarding the rating, it is fully functional and in excellent cosmetic condition (the remote is beginning to show its age, though). However, I've noticed two issues: the 'on' button on the unit has been finicky and I've heard a clicking sound when I first power it on that makes me think a relay may be coming loose. It does start but may take five or 30 seconds. I could hook it up for a demo if you have any concerns.

In the last year I've only used this Lexicon for DTS surround music, for which it's spectacular. It's limited inputs & outputs prevent me from keeping it in use for home theatre, and I went to a much simpler (but less hifi) denon. In fact the Lexicon blows the denon processor out of the water for sound, but it's limitations as an all-purpose processor made me switch. I guess given all the affordable options today this is really most suited to an audio "hobbyist" or an old-fashioned theatre setup (ie without a great many sources). I'm happy to answer any questions you may have.
