I recently replaced my MC1 with Meridians new 568. Tremendous musical improvement!!! Smoother, more dynamic, tons more bass extension, and unbeleivable image and soundstage. The Lex still has a far better user interface, and more overall flexibility, but if sound is #1, no contest! The Lexicon is an awesome piece, and it will open your eyes to what multichannel music can do, but I still prefer the 568 for overall sound quality. As far as amps go, it just depends on your wants and tastes. And budget! Anything from a big 5ch (like B&K's new reference 4420) to multiple amps (proceed HPA's or the like) would be good--audition carefully!! Cables will also change the character. Good luck!
