Until very recently, I'd never considered using separates. I always thought they'd be way outside my budget. After taking a look at OutlawAudio.com, I guess I've been wrong. Anyway, I've been bitten by the upgrade bug and I'm working with a budget of up to $2000. I'm looking for at least 110 watts X 7 channels, and it would be great to also have HDMI/DVI video switching. At $1899, the Yamaha RX-V4600 meets those criteria, but I kind of like the idea having separate components. It looks like the Outlaw 990 pre/pro has all the goods, and the 7125 amp has the power I'm looking for. I've read a thread here about the 990, and it looks really good. According to Outlaw's site, the combo sells for $1898, with ground shipping around $95, so the total price is in my budget. The site also says that the 7125 is "coming soon". Before I make any decisions, I'd like to hear if anyone has this combo, and what you think of it. Is the 7125 available yet? I went all the way through the ordering process (right before entering my credit card number), and there was no mention of the fact that the 7125 hasn't been released yet.
