Well, that feeling pales in comparison to the way I'm feeling about the M7. It's absolutely breathtaking. I've truly never heard anything like it (and I've heard A LOT) .... ALREADY, I can't imagine ever being without it. I knew if I didn't buy it, I'd be frustrated until I did. Everything sounds heavenly now and it's so comforting to know it always will. It's worth $3700 just for the initial rush of euphoria the first time you hear it in action!! Bricasti: The Heroin of Reverbs And now, if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go overdose.
Congratulations! thumbsup I felt the same way when I got my first John Hardy Mic pre...money well spent and you know it's going to give you years of satisfaction and euphoria...heh

Sorry I missed you Tony. Not only was I at Lexicon in Bedford, Mass, but I was there in Waltham, years before we moved to Bedford. As far as I can tell, I haven't disappeared (I will check in the mirror, just to be sure). And although I might have added a couple of pounds over the years, I don't think I've quite reached the status of corporate giant either. We're still at work on issues that are reported to us and will continue to do so.

N.S.

PS.
The restauranteur you mentioned was a colleague. We're still in touch. Darned good engineer.

Well, it's good to hear some of you are still around... I've lost touch with a lot of you guys... Where's Greg Hogan nowadays?

Good question - he owes me an expansion card for my PCM90, which he never delivered...

He left a few years ago. I believe he's still around Salt Lake somewhere.

I have recently got both the Bricasti M7 and Lexicon PCM96. I must say that I find the PCM96 to have a very cryptic and confusing user interface. Navigating your way through the system presets, machine presets and virtual machines is a maze that you can easily get hopelessly lost in and not know how to get back to listening to a simple preset. I must admit I am not very technically savvy when it comes to musical equipment, but I just got a TC 2290 as well that is not supposed to be that user friendly and I am having a much easier time, especially since the TC manual provides some clear examples that you can work through. Hopefully, I will figure it out one of these days, but I think Lexicon should have provided a more comprehensive manual with some straightforward examples. The M7 interface is much simpler although it doesn't have the effects offered by the PCM96. Both sound extremely good to my ears, but as others have said the realistic spaces created by the Bricasti are exceptional and I prefer the plates as well.
