I have the Outlaw 7125 for about 18 months.
Extremely quiet and runs very cool even at high volumes.
Great product.

I have a 7900. I think it is awesome and definitely is a huge improvement over my old 7125 -- I can keep turning up the volume and it just keeps sounding good!

I don't have much else to compare it to.

I use two M2200s to power my surrounds and they work great with the rest of my system.

I've been looking at outlaw for a bit now. for the time being, i am running mirage full mirage 7 speakersm-9 towers, om center and hd-t surrounds. Earthquake sub up front and a smaller psb sub in the back corner of the room all powered off a pioneer elite vsx 74. I thought of either gettin the 2200s for just the towers and center for now or just goin with less power and getting the 7125 to power all 7 speakers. anyone have anyinput for me? in the near future, i may be swapping out for klipsch reference RF-83 system or maybe even the ultra 2 system.Has anyone heard these amps with any of these or similar setups?

Let me know what you decide to do. I have the Klipsch RF-83 system and am using an Elite 74txvi. I think it sounds great, however I've also been considering adding an external amp, probably 200W x 5, as I'm not sure if I see the benefit of the rear speakers in my setup. Outlaw is on a short list of possible choices which I think are price efficient and logical choices.

I've been running the Outlaw 990/7700 combo for just over a year now and absolutely love them although I did recently purchase a used Pioneer Elite 84TXSi receiver to use as a pre-amp. If I can get the ground loop problem figured out in my room I'll let you know what I think of between the two units. As long as I don't connect the HDMI cable to the Elite, (which is whats causing my buzzing problem in my room) and just listen to music or CD, so far I've like what I've heard with the 84/7700 combo.

I'm looking to purchase a pre-own 7100 and use my Denon receiver as pre/pro. This will be my very first experience with amps. Outlaw owners care to comment if the 7100 is a good amp Vs the newer models? Is this is a good move.

I bought a 7200 recently, right out of the box the amp blew one of my speaker

But I'm glad Outlaw has a great customer service, on the same day I called they sent me a replacement unit and a return label for the defective one. They end up replacing the blown drivers.

I paired my 7200 with Onkyo 905 and no complaints so far! They sounded great, more live and crispier compared when powering my speakers with the receiver only.

Speedys4,
Thanks for your comments. The 7100 I'm considering is a discontinued model. And is only rated at 100 wpc. I only hope that the 7100 will top my Denon's amp by a wide margin.....

purchased an 7125 two years ago it still works great. Outlaw screwed up the packing slip and instead of one it said two. I ended up paying double duty and tax , at first I wrongly blamed UPS but the fault is all Outlaw. Its been two years since I complained to Outlaw and they have yet to refund my money. Nope won't ever buy outlaw again

I run a Model 755 and two M200s. The M200s are for my mains and the Model 755 runs my center and surrounds. The remaining channels on the Model 755 are used for zone 2 (outside deck and pool parties). Absolutely solid pieces of equipment.

Anyone have a 7500? thinking of going the separates route.
Will these be that much better than getting a higher end Denon or Integra Receiver?
Was thinking of possible matching a 7500 to an integra 9.8.

Hey all. Looking at purchasing a used 750 from somebody locally. Anything I should be on the look for when i go audition them? Is $650 too much for an 8 year old amp?

How efficient or inefficient power-consumption-wise would five monoblocks be compared to running a five-channel amp? I'm looking at grabbing a 5-channel amp with xlr, but the price of the 2200s has me considering the monoblock route. Problem is, I don't have an additional five outlets available-- can they be run on a generic power strip without problems?

Hello, I have the 990/7500/lfm+ and run them with the axioms 80s-150-qs8s and the system rocks in ht and music. The room size is 15/23/8 and cannot blast them louder without hurting my ears. The 7500 is a big and powerful amp. Im shure either the 7500 or the monos will fit your needs.

I'm currently auditioning the B&K 700.2 and the Outlaw 7700. I was able to get a demo B&K 700.2 from Magnolia for about same price as the Outlaw 7700 (the 700.2 is $3000 MSRP). While I think the Outlaw sounds about as good as the B&K (there are subtle differences), there is little in the way of power filtering on the Outlaw making it very finicky as to power coming from the outlet.

The Outlaw pretty much requires a dedicated circuit as even with good filtering other equipment on the same circuit will make the transformers hum. This is not ground loop hum coming from the speakers, but mechanical noise coming from the amp itself. It is audible from my listening position some 7 feet away from the amp. Even after putting it on it's own dedicated circuit, the humming comes and goes.

This might not bother some people, but it bothered me, particularly since the B&K does not suffer from the same problems.

Outlaw support has been great, BTW. They shipped me out a replacement unit when I complained about the humming on the first unit and have shipped me out a DC filter to help troubleshoot the issue. They also extended my 30 day trial period when they sent me out the replacement amp.

If I wasn't able to get a demo B&K amp, I would have no problems with the Outlaw 7700. Would probably live with the humming.

It's a well built amp in all respects, except I think they had to compromise a bit on the power handling. My thoughts are that for a piece of electronic equipment it should be able to handle even fairly noisy power.

However, sound wise, it's a very good performer.

I have all five of my M2200's plugged into a Monster power strip, and have for over a year now with no issues. You will be fine using a power strip long as it is not a cheap one.

I was wondering the same thing as far as efficiency of the monoblocks, as I know that receivers power ratings decrease as more channels are driven, in other words a 140W x 7 receiver might only be putting out 80W each channel when all channels are being driven. Anyone know how the Outlaw amps do in this respect if I went for one of their 7 channels in one unit compared to the separate monoblocks?

I figure having separate monoblocks would eliminate this issue, but would require extensive changes to my setup to accomodate the space needed for 7of these things, so I wanted to make sure I considered all options before dropping the cash and making the structural changes.

Instead of the monoblocks, I wonder if I could save some coin and find a 7125 for my RF-83 setup? Hmmm. 125w x 7 I would think would be enough for those speakers, and would be significantly cheaper and take up less room.

Anyone here have any opinions on it?
