I have a Lexicon MC-12B that I have loved. I am now upgrading to HDMI Plasma and LED/LCD TVs and am looking for an alternative that will give the sound quality that I have enjoyed but will support HDMI 1.4a. I am trying to be reasonable this time. The MC-12B was $10K and the new MP-21 has suggested retail of $14K which, in my view, is silly given the way technology moves forward. I would like to keep the price below $5K, if possible, but I am flexible if the processor supports firmware and modular upgrades to protect against obsolescence. Recommendations?
(BTW, I posted same topic in audio)
