    Just pulled the trigger on an Outlaw 7000x - my first foray into separates

    One other compliment I will pay the Outlaw is that it runs very cool. I've literally watched two loud action movies back to back, not quite at reference but at a pretty decent level...and I would hesitate to call it anything more than warm. In fact I just remembered I recently bought an infrared...

    Huh, good to know about RCA to XLR. I do want to get a properly functioning unit so I'm still proceeding with the return. I won't lie, the thought of deadlifting this thing back into the box is making the RCA->XLR option appealing though. But if there's something damaged in it now, there's no...

    Oddly, the voltage gain is only 28db. This may be an indictment on the power amps of the Denon 4400h/4500h. Sadly this unit is being returned and replaced by Outlaw for a new one. First off: major props for Outlaw addressing this quickly and organizing the return (the support trouble ticket...

    re:gain on external amps being lower...I don't know if this plays any part as again, I'm not an engineer. The main reasons I bought the Outlaw have been enumerated: cost (wanted to be around $1K, weight (60 < 90 lol) and company rep (though Emotiva and Monolith also have incredible reputations...

    So...I'll update more later but I have it hooked up and... I love the sound of it. It runs cool. My receiver's volume level is overall lower (I know it's a relatively meaningless number) but the "digital number" for the volume on my receiver is about 5 less when running it through the Outlaw...

    Does time ever stretch out as slowly as when an item you're anticipating has the status of "on truck, out for delivery...by end of day"? :laugh:

    Well this is a bit of a pleasant surprise. Was told by Amazon (which is where I ordered it from, I was taking advantage of a 0% financing and cash rewards agreement my CC has with Amazon) and initially I was quoted "April 15-20". It is still "sold by and ship by Outlaw" so I figured it was...

    Just pulled the trigger on an Outlaw 7000x - my first foray into separates

    Yeah I will be very interested in the Monolith Class D offering, especially with the lighter weight and lessened heat generation. Monoprice has really done a bang-up job on their Monolith series, so I'm hoping that carries through to the Class D amp. Curious that it's 8x100 rather than the...

    Just pulled the trigger on an Outlaw 7000x - my first foray into separates

    Oh believe me if something equal or better came along at the same price and was lighter, I'd have gone with that. I got a crash course in Class D, G and H amps from Gene at Audioholics via his reviews on YouTube. It does seem like Class D has come a long way recently in sound quality, and Class...

    Just pulled the trigger on an Outlaw 7000x - my first foray into separates

    I've always owned AVRs. From mass market Sony AVRs when I graduated college and couldn't afford anything over $500, to their ES line when I got a little more disposable income, an NAD T763 (which is my motivation to buying the Outlaw) and then to Pioneer Elites and my current Denons (4400 and...
