    im not sure if i've asked this before but the only thing i know is Outlaw 950/770 combo. What im lookin for is something that atleast does 200wpc at 8 ohms and im startin to think the outlaw is like the only one that does at that price.

    With the Rotel 1066 being replaced, you should have a good chance of getting a Rotel 1066/1095 combo for under 3k new.

    i mean we can push for like $3,500 but thats absolute max.

    What does the B&K Ref 50 and the Rotel 1066 cost how bout the 1095 and 200.5/200.7? what will they cost at the end of the year? i was thinking only to spend about $1,000-$1,500 on a preamp and spend the rest on an amp is that the right way to go?

    and after i get my preamp if i have bigger desires i was gonna wait like a year and get like a $3,000 preamp, but it's easier to spend $3,000 twice in 2 years then $6,000 in one year [​IMG]

    and whats with the striking resemblence of Outlaw and Sherbourn.
