While the MC-1 is awesome in home theater it is poor as a stereo pre-amp. I was really hoping Lexicon would improve stereo performance with the MC-1. You would be better off using an outboard DAC and pre-amp for stereo performance. I am using a Proceed AVP which uses the same dacs for the front L/R as the Mark Levinson dac. I had both the AVP and the MC-1 for a couple of months and the AVP blew it away in stereo. The MC-1 I still prefered for Home Theater though.
