    The HTF hardware forum database recently suffered a severe crash and a lengthy (and sometime informative) thread was lost in the process. I've already established a separate thread HERE where beta tester reports can be viewed if that is your pleasure.
    Obviously there are some questions that the reports may not answer. Therefore I am establishing this thread for the purpose of sharing additional information. I must tell you, however, that speaking for myself (and I suspect for the other beta testers as well) I don't have the time, nor the desire to re-answer all the questions that were brought up in the original 500 message thread. Therefore I am asking for the cooperation of other veteran members here to answer questions of new members as they see fit.
    I suspect that most of the technical items have already been addressed and that we are all waiting for the answer to the "big" question, "When will the 950 be released?" Unfortunately, we don't know any more than you do and only Outlaw can answer this.
    Therefore if you are new to this section and have some burning questions that you want an answer to, this is the place to ask them. I hope that the members of this forum will be able to bring newcomers up to speed.
    Thanks in advance for your understanding and cooperation.

    How's this for too much time on my hands:
    I was thinking that if they fly the first set of units over at the same time they launch the first boat, all of those people will get the call at the same time. I don't think they will call the airshipped people until they have units in hand ready to go, but the folks who have units on the ship should get the call ~10 days before they ship to them which means right about when they leave the dock headed this way.
    Maybe I shouldn't have sold my pre/pro in anticipation of this release. I'm getting a little obsessed. [​IMG]

    Was the problem of settings not being saved for each mode fixed?

    O.K. Larry. I looked over the specs on the Atlantic site and as far as I can tell, this P-2000 is the Outlaw 950. In fact, I would strongly suggest that people insterested in the 950 download and print out the link that Brian Corr (thanks, Brian!) provided. That's the best description of the 950 I've seen yet.
    Of course, if an $800 increase in list price is worth it to you to avoid the dreaded green button, well, I don't know.

    A little more seriously, I'm fully aware that the AT "list" price will be discounted so the $800 is not a fair comparison.
    And on another, related note - A little birdy has informed me that The Outlaws should have some specifications posted on their web site within a day or two for the record. I wouldn't be surprised if they are the same ones that you can already read about at the AT site. Maybe Outlaw will include more specs?
    That's "spec. speculation" on my part.

    Stay tuned....

    I'm sure this has been asked before but I haven't been able to track it down.

    Does the 950 have an onscreen volume display?

    And what other onscreen displays does it feature?

    Looks like Outlaw gives you a lot of onscreen info. Very important to me as I haven't had my Lasik surgery yet.

    Outlaw not passing onscreen info via component video is probably a good thing. I think Denon is also not allowing onscreen displays via their component video to keep the component signal pristine.

    Do these onscreen displays let you keep listening and or watching as you go through them? Are they superimposed? I know a lot of units that don't, Sony, Pioneer, and not being able to see or hear what effect the adjustments your making have, can be very annoying.

    Thanks for your help,

    RAF,

    How about another question?

    Trim Levels?

    Are the adjustments you make with the trim level permanent or temporary?

    Also is there any word of the remote that will eventually come with the 950?

    Thanks again,

    geo

    Geo,

    I believe they are permanent. There is also a pic of the remote on the Outlaw site.

    The picture referenced on the Outlaw site is, I'm told, the final remote. It seems to be a lot more versatile than the mock up remote I used and can only make a good thing even better. Incidentally, it is my understanding that the final production of these remotes and their delivery is one of the items that Outlaw is waiting on before releasing the 950. I'm not privy to the actual production schedule but I don't believe it is a long range situation.

    I am very interested in this new preamp from outlaw-audio and I may get both the 950 and the 750 combo since I don't have room for the DTS-ES and DOLBY-EX and I don't need the 770.

    I have had Denon receivers for the last four years and I really like their ability to keep different settings for different inputs. Is this feature present on the new 950 outlaw? Thank you.

    They don't have the same amp design as the Outlaw 770 in that A-2000 do they??? I thought I remembered reading that the Outlaw would be $1800 so the MSRP of $1200 for the AT amp looks nice. In any case, an MSRP of $1200 that will be discounted to under a grand looks really nice to me. I might have to mix and match to save money; that is, if the AT amp (or anything in that price range) is in the same quality range as the Outlaw 770.

    JoeH: The AT P-2000 amp is RMS rated at 125w per channel into 8 ohms with all 6 channel driven. The Outlaw 770 is supposed to be rated at 200w per channel x 7 channels into 8 ohms. The amps are not the same and are probably not made by the same company since the Outlaw amp is being made in the USA.

    The Outlaw 770 and the AT amp are totally different.

    I did shoot off an email to AT asking who is making their amp. The girl that responded didn't know.

    The AT pre/pro is due out in May.

    Why is it that the outlaw 950 does not support different setting for different inputs?
