    I am looking into picking up an Outlaw 950 very soon and have some questions if some would help.

    1. I have a 5.1 system now with dipoles in the rear. I love the sound they produce and do not want to switch them out. I have a small room so 7.1 is too much for me but can I add a rear center for 6.1? The rear of the 950 doesnt have a rear center output.

    Heres a pick of the back of my room: http://users.erols.com/rmahle/theate...s/4_seats1.htm I would like to just add it right in the middle of the back some day.

    2. I use my preamp to video switch S-Video currently and possible upgrade to a Hi-Def some day. Can anyone comment on the video quality of the 950?

    3. Anyone have one near Allentown, PA - Central NJ that would have me over for a demo?

    Robert,
    1. Yes, you use either the right or left rear surround output but I can't remember which it is. Its in the manual.
    2. I have had no issues with the video capabilities of the 950, and I use a projector so it should be more obvious on a bigger screen. I use the 950 to switch s-video for my vcr and dish and I use the component switching for my dvd player and hdtv receiver.
    3. Sorry, can't help you there.

    Thanks Jed,

    This really is looking like the piece for me and $799 new I don't think I can beat it. I'd love to try a rotel but I dont have $1400...
