as a follow on from my previous:

ALL mpx200s have a problem with the digital input. It renders a lot of the presets useless with digital in.

Lexicon were unaware of this until I contacted them. They offer only an apology.

Has anyone come across this problem? Would anyone like to see if theirs has the same trouble? I'm trying to determine if the Lexicon is at fault here.

With a digital (S/PDIF) input (from a Roland VS-1680) my unit produces nasty "digital" noise on the wet portion of the output signal - but only on certain programs: 38, 40 - 49, 115 and some of the dual programs.

Most presets process the digital signal fine.

The noise reflects activity from the roland such as cursor movement. The output signal is not returning to the Roland, so I don't think it's any kind of feedback.

thanks for any thoughts,

Well, it's the first effects unit for me so I have nothing to compare it with besides software plugins. But this unit realy is value for money!

Very good reverbs (what else from lexicon :) and very good flange/chorus effects.

The delay's are IMO pretty limited (editing wise) but overall the unit is very good!

it's true what they say - really good value for the money. you get superb lexicon quality for a reasonable price. i love simply everything about it - flange fx, reverbs [and you get plenty of those], delays and pitch shift fx in particular. many routing opitions make it a versatile tool - it can be used as a stereo processor running two fx types at the same time or you can plug two mono sources and process them independently. besides, it's easy to operate - although it hasn't got a huge lcd display the user's interface is very good - you can learn to use it quickly just acting on instinct :). i think nothing can beat it in this price range. go for it if you need quality fx and you are on a tight budget.

drawbacks: there is no in depth programming possibility, but after all - the presets are almost everything you will need.
