    This is from the forum at www.outlawaudio.com:
    "Will the 950 have a 5 channel stereo mode similar to Denon or Onkyo?

    Since it has been previously announced that it would not, you can be the first to know it will offer a five/seven channel stereo mode (depending on speaker configuration).

    More features and more delays most likely. Who wants to make a bet that no one here on the HTF will have an Outlaw in their hands come Christmas?

    What does Christmas have to do with anything? Alot of guys have put a time frame on when you want to purchase your next upgrade. Many have put X-mas as the time. Use what you have, and a few more months will not kill you will it? You have waited this long right?

    Im waiting as well and may wait longer to see how it sounds and its reliability. My Denon is doing the trick, even though I want to go to seperates in a bad way. I'd rather have the outlaw 950 jammed back and bug free before it comes to my house, what about you?

    Many people get an extended holiday vacation at Christmas time. It would be nice to have some quality time with your new equipment.

    Todd, you're being a little harsh (IMO) towards those who have waited through one or two delays already. The Christmas deadline was stated by Outlaw not the forum.

    This delay isn't bad even now.

    The successor to the Sony TA-E9000ES, the rumoured E10S, was supposed to have been out this year, then next year, but now there are rumors it won't be until 2003! If that is really true, sort of makes it irrelevant I would think.

    Ron,

    I have been awaiting this as long as everyone else. Sorry if It came across harsh. I switched to Sanka Decaf

    Just look at the promised upgrade to the B&K Reference 30... how many deadlines has B&K missed? And now, the $800 upgrade may not even happen with the expected release of a new B&K pre/pro come CES 2002? How pissed must those folks be who paid $2400 for their pre/pro and now B&K refuses to support them after the purchase.

    IMO, it would be better for Outlaw to wait and come out with a perfect $900 pre/pro than one which needs to go back for an upgrade or bug fix.

    John,
    Your post is exactly why I say that buying a Top O' the Line receiver with the promise of software upgrades (without any past upgrade history) is a giant leap of faith at best and downright foolish at worst! For the price of some of these receivers ($2500-$3000+) one could purchase a used Lexicon and a good 5 channel amp. But hey, if one can afford it and wants it, it's their money. Spend it as they wish![​IMG]
