I think I have narrowed my receiver choice down to these two. I've never listened to the Outlaw, so I am going by all the positive press I have read. I'm leaning towards the 1050, but the 595 has a lot to offer as well. It seems the main difference feature-wise is that the 595 offer DPLII decoding. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I watch very little broadcast TV and my VHS tape collection is small, so I don't see myself getting much use out of DPLII. I would estimate that my listening habits are 70% music/30% HT. One concern I have about the 1050 is that it will be discontinued soon. Not a huge deal, but if there is a new/improved version on the horizon I am willing to wait. Thoughts? Opinions? Rude remarks?
