Surround Sound Preamplifiers(Print this page)
The MV-5 Processor is a landmark product for Lexicon and represents several firsts for the brand, offering capabilities previously only available in the flagship MC-12 HD. The MV-5 also breaks new ground with several features not currently available in other Lexicon products – all at a fraction of the price. At its heart, the MV-5 is a multi-faceted audio and video preamplifier with built-in processing. In addition, the MV-5 can accommodate a pair of HDMI source devices and can connect directly to a PC via USB, enabling the control and playback of streaming audio files. With the optional dock accessory, iPod owners can even play their iPod® music through the MV-5.
Drawing from Lexicon’s background and expertise, the MV-5 Processor features the latest version of Lexicon’s critically acclaimed Logic 7® decoding. The calling card of all Lexicon processors, Logic 7 has been widely praised for its ability to greatly enhance the listening experience of any type of source material – whether it is music, film, TV, or even video games. Using Logic 7 with your system means that your music sounds more natural – more like you’d hear it at a live event; movies are more compelling, drawing you deeper into the illusion of being there; and video games put you right in the middle of the action. There’s very little that Logic 7 can’t improve, and it’s just one more reason why Lexicon products are considered to be the best in the industry. The MV-5 features an automated procedure for use in speaker setup, which also performs system equalization. Most equalization systems simply knock down the peaks in the response, but the MV-5 calibrates the system more intelligently - compensating for frequency response aberrations and varied speaker performance, while balancing the entire system for the best overall results. In addition, the MV-5 is capable of storing different calibrations, so up to three different listening positions can be recalled at the touch of a button. The end result is a system that optimizes the sound quality where it counts the most – at your seat!
