Which should I upgrade first? Outlaw 1050 -> Outlaw 950 or Outlaw 770?

    Here's my current home theater setup:

    [*]http://www.goodsound.com/equipment/outlaw_1050_receiver.htm



    Though the room is L-shaped, I currently use the 23' x 9.25' leg for my home theater / listening area (though I suppose I could switch to the other leg if you think that'd help). I use the system for about 80% home theater, and 20% music.



    I realize that this is a long post, but I look forward to your replies. Thanks guys!

    I would go with option #2 or #4, for good loudspeakers always sound good, and a good amplifier will last you ten years if you take care of it, but an a/v preamp might be obsolete within a year, or even six months. For the preamp/processor, I would either get one that is an incredible value (outlaw) or one that can be upgraded in the future (proceed avp or avpII, EAD theatermaster, etc)

    Let me ask you the most important question (IMHO) what is your viewing monitor?

    If your picture isnt up to par then everything else is secondary.

    I would get the amp 1st. Then get the 950 when it hits hardware/software "rev 2.0".

    Gregg,
    My viewing monitor is a 27" Sony Wega. Of course, I use its 16:9 mode for viewing DVDs. And, I'm fairly happy with it at the moment.
