    I have only been on this site for two days and I have doubled my knowledge of home audio. This site is great! I am looking for Pre/Pro and Amplifier for my HT setup. I bought a set of Infinity Alpha series speakers but my current reciever is old (pioneer VSX 405) and I would like to replace it. I have read some really good reviews about the outlaw 950 and the 7100 so I am considering that. My budget for the Pre/pro and amp is around $1500 so it fits perfectly in my budget. Are there any other suggestions for low end pre/pro and amp (and for recievers in that price range)?

    The reason I am leaning toward seperates is that I want a system that I will easily be able to upgrade in the future. Thanks for you input.

    I had a 950, and now I have the Lexicon MC-8. Even in spite of the price differential, I was very happy with the 950. I would have kept it, but I had this itch for Logic 7, you see... [​IMG]

    Plus, you get 30 days to try them out and to return them if you don't like them.

    Just wait until you've been hanging out here for a couple of years. I'm still amazed at what I've learned from others here. [​IMG]

    I have the 950/770 combo which is the big brother of the 950/7100 and you are going to love the sound of this set up. With a 30 day return policy you really can't go wrong. Try it out in your house for a couple of weeks and put it through its paces. If you don't care for it just return it and pick up something else.

    Outlaw stuff is excellent for the price. I am very happy with my Outlaw Model 950 and would recommend it to anyone who asked.

    Check out the Hardware For Sale section for a nice deal on a Marantz/Outlaw combo. And no, it's not mine...
