I have a local HI-End shop by me that carries Arcam, and swears by them. I have heard the AVR200 receiver in the store and it absolutely sounds great with music, but I haven't had a chance to hear it with Home Theatre. I was speaking with the owner of the shop and He said that paired with a nice amp, he would put it up against equipment in the $10,000 range. I just received my 950, and have been giving some serious thought to seeing if I could do a head to head comparison between the two. The Arcam sells for about $1000, which is in close competition to the Outlaw. Granted the Arcam is a receiver!!! Any opinions??
