    The Outlaw website says 950 is now shipping? Have anyone been contacted? Please share. I am on the waiting list, and cannot wait any longer.

    They have not resumed shipping, and they haven't sent out a newsletter in a while. Last rumor I heard was that they may resume shipping sometime in August, but who knows. My name should be right at the top of the list, because they got through Jan 12 pre-orders before they halted shipping, and I pre-ordered on Jan 15. Of course, I've been enjoying my Rotel 1066 for a few months now, so I won't be buying the 950.

    What was the reason for the cessation of production of the 950?

    Cheers,

    I think after many false starts, people have a
    bitter feeling towards Outlaw. I have no problem
    waiting (AS LONG AS THE WAIT IS WORTH IT!). I will
    give Outlaw the benefit of a doubt, that they will
    fix the problems. But considering there unfortunate
    history on this one product. If they say it will be
    ready in August, then it will be ready just before
    Christmass.

    I am not expecting a $900 product to be the be all
    and end all of processors. But I do expect it to
    work well and sound good.

    Good luck to the Outlaws, I think they need it.
    But in the end I think that they will have a wonderfull
    product, once all the problem areas are taken care of.

    Phill- I'll add a little on to what you posted.

    I have some $$$ allocated for a pre/pro (receiver as a pre/pro).

    I want to buy an Outlaw! But it ain't to be anytime soon. (My target was mid Sept, but now my target is a solid 3 months after shipping resumes for any *future* bugs to show up, software fixes, etc.)

    And even though I refuse to buy the Rotel because of a lack of bass management on the 5.1 analog inputs, I've been taking a look at the new Yamaha RX-V1300, the HK 520, etc, as "just sometin' to fool with" until the 950 is ready for prime time.

    As mentioned earlier in the year, Atlantic Technology announced they were releasing a pre/pro that was remarkably similar to the Outlaw 950. Being that Peter Tribeman is the driving force behind both companies, it would be easy to surmise that they were pretty much the identical product internally.

    Rumor has it that the Atlantic Technology pre/pro is now vaporware. It is not official yet...but that is the word on the industry street.
