I'm beginning to wonder about the cost savings of Outlaw's Internet business model. Sure, they can pass savings along to the consumer because there is no middleman to mark up their selling price, but there's an offsetting factor to be considered -- economies of scale. Now I concede I have no hard data but I imagine that Onkyo, Denon and the rest build on such a big enough scale that they are buying components in far larger quantities than I imagine is Outlaw. Therefore, can't the big firms demand greater discounts on hardware? Because of their large production runs, can't the bigger companies conceivably afford larger and more efficient production lines which might not be feasible for Outlaw. Aren't these savings, not available to Outlaw, passed along to us as well? Now I say all this while waiting for my recently ordered "B" stock Outlaw 1050 receiver, purchased in large part, but not totally because of reviews I read here, and I'm pretty excited about getting it and in no way is that enthusiasm curbed by what I just wrote, but I'm just academically curious about whether or not an Internet company with small production runs can really undercut the big vendors on price and exceed them on quality. Thoughts?
