Hi there.

Let's all make a hitlist of some Lexicon units.
I'm curious how you guys all rank the different pieces.
Here we go... We have a scale of 0 to 100..
I'll give the MPX 100 a score of 10 and the 480 the 100 points.. Please fill in all the other units in between. [btw: the 960 is not in this list, because I haven't heard one yet, but you may add it to this scorelist]
And please JUDGE on the REVERBS (so not on the quality of the other effects!)...
For example take the STUDIO A preset on all this units... how do the compare on a scale from 0to100 ???

Here we go (please copy the list below for your reply and fill in your scores)

LEXICON REVERB quality scorelist:
-M480L-----> 100
-MPX100----> 10


Ok... there we go!

I haven't really liked anything they've made since the 224X with the blue metal controller. I started to lose interest in Lexicon stuff right around the time they came out with the 'LARC' controller, and stopped making the PCM-42.

MPX 500 = 20
MPX 1 = 20
They are a little better than the 100, but compared to say a TC M one they are lacking quite a bit in reverb quality only. More presets on them which is nice but the reverbs, I don't feel are their strong suite. The guys at Lexicon suggested that the 500 actually has better reverbs than the 1, but I think they are about the same.
