I'm surprised at you, guys. I let something out on the Outlaw forum a few hours ago and nobody picked up on it? Let's say that I have it on very good authority that letters will be going out to those at the top of the Outlaw 950 reservation list within the next day or two providing details for the exercising of your reservation option. I don't know exactly how deep into the list the Outlaws will go (that's up to them and things I am not privy to) but the last pieces of the puzzle have come together and they are, apparently about to give the go-ahead to start the production line going. For the curious, the final hurdle involved some licensing approvals and all the paperwork is now supposedly in place. I won't steal the Outlaws' thunder any more and let their impending letter speak for itself. Wouldn't want to spoil the surprise. Looks like John/Merc/Whatever Morris was right when he said "Beware the Ides of March." But I'm sure there will be those who still find something to fault with his words. It appears that his guess was spot on regarding the start of the release process. Nice call, merc! And speaking of "nice" I've spent most of the day playing with my new Outlaw 755 Amplifier. I tested it out with my Marantz MA700 monoblocks and also with the amplifier section of my Denon 5700 in all possible combinations. After almost 8 hours of constant listening my initial verdict is in. If you are planning on getting a 755 (or a 770 which is the functional equivalent of the 755 with two more amps) I predict you will be very, very happy. The individual amps in the 755 match up very nicely with the performance of my MA700's and, quite honestly, I can't say that I can hear a difference. I've lived with the MA700s powering my front soundstage (L/C/R) for over a year and when I put three amps of the 755 in place of the three MA700s the only reason that I knew that this had occurred was because I had done the wiring. Very similar performance in terms of power and imaging. And this is not surprising because the two products have very similar specs. I love my MA700s and the 755 amps are, in my opinion, at least the equal in performance. Then I replaced the four Denon 5700 amps that were previously powering the four surround channels (LS,LR,RR & RS) with the remaining two amps from the 755 and two of the MA700s. As we like to say here in New Yawk, Fuggedaboudit!! No contest. An acoustic epiphany! Seven clean channels of 300W each into 4 ohms with plenty of headroom. Of course, the MA700s and the 755 amps are more powerful and have much more robust specifications than a receiver's amp section so this wasn't really a fair comparison. It now just comes down to which amps to use where and for me this is just a matter of convenience. After trying out all manner of configurations I've decided to let the 755 address the L/C/R and L&R side surrounds (as indicated above) and use two MA700s for the L&R rear surrounds. The remaining MA700 becomes a spare until 8.1 or whatever shows up. I will probably never, ever need all the headroom that this set-up provides, but as with my SVS subwoofer, it's nice to know that it's there for that rare burst of power that is called for. (A similar philosophy guides my predilection for 8 cylinder automobiles.) During normal listening and viewing the reserves make the regular stuff effortless and this shows up in how everything sounds. I've been speaking very favorably about the performance of the 950 and can now, from personal experience, give an enthusiastic endorsement for a 950/755 or, by extension, 950/770 package. Wait until you hear what I'm hearing.
