Lexicon MC-12 too out dated?

Am I crazy to consider buying a Lexicon MC-12 as an upgrade to my Lexicon DC-1. I currently don't switch my video with the processor. I just connect video devices directly to the TV. I know where I can get a MC-12 for $1000.
No, not crazy. That's a great price for a pre/pro that sounds really good. Just get a good BluRay player (Oppo BDP-95 has great DAC's) and use the analog 7.1 input and you'll be just fine.
