    I have a LXP-1 and wondered if the MPX1 or 550 sounded better, or would have any advantages in a home studio over the LXP-1?

    Here's a list of lexicon effects on Harmony Central, other gear there too under user review

    user reviews on most of the units should help in your decision,,


    I have the LXp-1,, wish i had the MRC controler for it, I also noticed the lead player from YES has the LXP in his home rack,,

    other then that , hope it helps, let us know what you decide and why ..

    If steve Howe has one, then it must be good enough for me! :D

    My guitar playing is another question though :?

    I owned both the LXP-1 and the MPX1, IMHO the LXP1 sounded better. Not by much, but that's the way I remember it.
    The MPX1 was fun for awhile. But there did come a time when I had to upgrade to get away from the MPX1.
    I never owned any PCM models, but that's all that's left for me with Lexicon. The lesser models were just NOT that good.

    agreed, I owned the mpx500 for awhile and it was no fun. Sitting next to the Kurzweil Mangler all the fx preset sounded really washed out.

    Thanks for all the advice. I think I will stick with the LXP-1 for now and save for maybe a second hand PCM70 or similar.
