I've enjoyed reading about the Outlaw 950 for many months now and am pleased for the new owners of what appears to be a fabulous unit at a great price, but I'm not on the list. I'm not on the list because I have decided to be a late adopter this time. By that I mean that I am waiting for the next generation preamp/processor from Outlaw or similar. I want and need a new preamp. I want and need a new DVD player. But I want a preamp that will incorporate Firewire or whatever is decided upon. I also want a universal DVD-A/SACD player that will output digitally these signals. These self-imposed requirements also allow me to sock away a few dollars towards the inevitable purchase. My question is when would a likely timetable be for such products to appear on the market. I was heartened when at the CES show, or was it CEDIA, several manufacturers announced products that would offer the ability to digitally connect a preamp to a DVD player for DVD-A albiet using a proprietary connection. I viewed this as a good sign that the copyright problem would soon be solved and products would start to trickle out. So, what do the esteemed members of this forum think? Sorry to bring this up, but the suspense is killing me.
