    Very soon, John. Very oon. Watch for an imminent announcement from Outlaw. I have in my possession what I consider to be the final release version of the 950.

    Excellent audio.

    Excellent Video.

    Ready for prime time.

    The beta testing is, in my opinion, history.

    Let the listening begin.

    RAF,

    When did you get this unit that you consider to be complete?

    Outlaw was who mentioned the "B" stock option. Sitting here with three units (all three of them are extremely competent from and audio standpoint) I openly wondered about the disposition of the two I return. That's where "retrofitting as "B" stock entered the picture.
    Outlaw has every right to do whatever they want with these "old" units to recoup some of their expenses, etc. To tell you the truth, even good old "Beta #1" with its average tuner and longer mode acquisition time, is very, very nice as a pre/pro. And to my eyes the slight degradation of the S Video signal on the second unit is something that a person could live with. You probably wouldn't even notice it unless it was pointed out and then, even in A/B testing it's close (at least on my sample.)
    Unit Three (the keeper) isn't going anywhere.
    Incidently, one of the side benefits of shuffling around all my components was the chance to install the 4" extensions on my Sanus Equipment rack (to accommodate the 8" high Outlaw 755 amplifier on a 12" shelf). I am happy to report that this works like a champ. I've had the amplifier on, essentially, for over 96 hours straight, give or take an hour or two during 950 exchanges) and the 755 is running so cool that it's hard to believe that this is a fan-less design. What a difference.
    Here's a rough view of the extended shelf (I modified both racks for symmetry) showing the new headroom for the amp. Looks fine and does the job.

    "I'll probably be a "late adopter" of the final tuner since I specifically told Outlaw to wait until all pre-orders were filled before exchanging my unit for the final release version."
    Today
    "In the rack: The Final Edition. Aurally and visually ready to ship. This one stays in the rack and is a keeper."
    Yielding to temptation, hmmmmm?[​IMG]
    I would too.

    I notice R.A.F.'s "final" 950 still only has three logos under the display (the surround logos). The two outlaw clones both displayed 4 such logos in their CES photos. Anyone know why?
    Someone at another forum mentioned that the final 950 would also sport 4 logos but R.A.F.'s photo seems to prove that wrong.
    Of course, I'm getting silly when I start going after the logos [​IMG]
