However, it does have a bit older input switching system and I found the front panel a bit difficult to read from a distance.

Yes I read your review! It's pretty amazing as I recall the Z1 was very expensive smile.gif

I don't need all the whistles at all. Right now I only use my Yamaha AVR as an hdmi switch which decodes audio.

This thread made me wonder a lot about getting the 975. If I've lived in the US it would be a no-brainer but I need to import it to Europe and so many costs will stack so high it comes close to an Marantz 7701 and Onkyo (Integra 80.2) when stores here have a sales shoot-out.

So far I've not been able to find any store delivering Outlaw here in Europe frown.gif

Yeah, I paid around 3000USD for my Z1 when it came out. Was alot of money for me especially at that time.
Do you know anyone in the states that could buy the outlaw and ship it to you to avoid the oppressive taxation?

I have a 975 on the way along with a MiniDSP nanoAVR 8x8 for room correction. The combo ought to be pretty impressive if I can sort it out.
I have a rather unconventional system with 60" Planar-magnetic line source dipoles actively crossed to stereo subs
with 2 NHT 1259's in each with a low QTS sealed alignment. I run it as 4 channels with no center.

As far as cost effective goes, This should be interesting....

Wow, nice surprise, got an e-mail from Outlaw saying they've just issued a software update for anyone not running the latest version (5.3), which fixes several problems/bugs. They're even sending customers the null-modem USB to RS-232 cable needed to connect to the 975.

You believe it was designed so that changing the crossover settings does nothing to the surround or surround-back channels?

I believe that selecting the surround channels to small only allows frequencies above ~120hz to reach those channels. Since the adjustable crossover range is 40hz to 200hz, changing the crossover settings produces no noticeable effect in the surround and surround back channels.

The only way to get mid-range bass frequencies out of the surround and surround back channels, is to select them as large.

It is the front/center channel crossovers that redirect bass frequencies below the crossover setting to the sub. So, even when selected as small, they have to be able to receive mid-range bass frequencies; even when set to small.
I'm using identical large tower speakers for my front mains and my surround back channels, and although I haven't done any definitive testing, I set the rear surround crossovers to 40hz, just like my mains. When listening to all channel stereo, the rear speakers sound like their reproducing down to 40hz. The bass response is the same as my fronts.

Does anyone know the actual HDMI version of this and if it supports consumer electronic control? The website is useless, there's no contact information on the website and I emailed the CEO and CFO and no response.

According to this review 1.4, couldn't find anything from Outlaw on it.

Actually, there is contact information on the website, you must have missed it. on the home page, at the top right is a button link called "About". Click on it and you'll go to that page. On that page, under the "Topics" section is a link called "Contact the Outlaws". Click on it and at the bottom of the page that appears is their phone numbers. Probably no one there at night.

IIRC it supports ARC and 3D. Not CEC and not stand-by passthrough.
