    Just asking for input from those who are aware of particular receivers and/or Pre-Pros that have either:
    1) Selectable bass management, such as the Outlaw, with 60, 80, 100, 120 and so on, or the Denon 3802 with 80, 100 etc. I have heard Sony has some, I'll check it out.
    2) A fixed 80 hz xover. For instance, the Yamaha has 90hz, which is close, but the Integra's have 80hz, as do others.
    3) Looking for DPL II and 6.1
    4) If its a receiver, at least 80-100 watts per channel. Prefer 100 wpc.
    Any suggestions? I could also do something like, use an SR 5200 with an MM9000 amplifier and OUTLAW ICBM, but it would be over my budget.
    I may go ahead with a Marantz SR 6200, but before I do, I would like to compare. I'm off to research.

    The Outlaw Audio Model 950 may be the pre-amp for you (40, 60, 80, 100, 120 Hz cross-overs and software upgradeability, unless something has changed).
    However, you will need to start out with at least a five channel amp (or multiples of smaller amps) if you want surround sound from the beginning.
    It'll be more than a receiver, but the rewards may be great. [​IMG]

    Yep, thats an option. A very expensive option, I believe. Too bad the Outlaw 1050 didn't have DPL II, or it would make a cheaper pre-prop alternative.
    Using the 950 would necessitate getting a 5 or 6 channel amp, this is true. It would all add up to a lot of cash. I was thinking of doing that while looking at Marantz and Outlaw AMPS, but they don't make a six-channel amp.

    The Sony TA-E9000ES pre/pro has adjustable crossovers by 10 Hz from at least 40 Hz to 120 Hz. *And*, you can adjust each speaker independently of every other speaker. Very flexible.
