    Need a pre/pro costing less than $1500. I know of the Rotel 1066 and Outlaw 950 but what else is coming out by year end in this price range?

    MSRP or street price. There will be a few 950 clones coming out this year...Atlantic Tech $1699 MSRP and Sherbourn $??? for sure. Sherwood Newcastle is supposed to be working on a pre/pro but I recall that it won't be ready for a while.

    I was thinking MSRP of $1500 or less.

    Looks to be a very limited choice of pre/pros at this point. It is hard to believe there is such a gap. I could buy a near top of the line Yamaha 3200 6.1 receiver or a Rotel 1066 for the same price. No wonder most people purchase receivers, they are nearly forced into it.

    rant, rant, rant...

    I can almost guarantee ya that when there's a standard(ieee1394?) for a single cable hookup between amp and pre-pro, the receiver market will be in for a world of hurt...except for the real cheap ones, of course. Hey, I like the convenience of the receiver as much as anybody, but why should I be forced to repurchase a receiver amp section whenever I desire new pre-pro features? This is aside from the subjective "sound quality" differences.
