    Looking to add some juice to my 5.1 setup, and since these amps seem to be at the same price point for me, I was just wondering which one would you pick? I'm pushing Polk Lsi 9's (4 ohm), and would be running it through an Outlaw 1050. I've read good things about both. Just looking for more opinions before I drop $700-900. Thanks

    I own Outlaw M200 amps, and I am very happy with them. $700-$900 looks like the going price for a used Outlaw 755. This model is discontinued and has 165WPC @8ohms, I think it retailed for $1100.

    The Cinema Grand 200~five is currently in production, I quickly found it for sale new at $2300, a quick look at used prices came up with a B-stock new amp for $1700.

    If you can get the used Cinema Grand 200~five for $800, I think you're supposed to do that. You could probably make money selling it if you decided not to keep it.

    A B-stock Outlaw 755 (current production 200WPC amp) costs $1180 new, and is a closer comparison with the B-stock Cinema Grand 200~five. I haven't heard the Cinema Grand, but for me personally, I don't think I could justify the 44% higher cost.
