Being that pre-orders are now live, figured I would start this thread.
Focusing on sound and video quality, ease of use, and expanded connectivity, the Model 976 has what the Outlaw customer expects: a true, no compromise, "best in class" product.
The Model 976 offers both balanced and conventional outputs in a 7.2 configuration fed by high quality DACs. The analog audio inputs stay analog through and through to maintain signal purity. As was the case with the Model 975, we've included a robust power supply with a compact torroidal transformer.
Between the pure analog inputs, support for 4K and all current forms of HDR, the Model 976 allows us to deliver a new, advanced product to those who want the benefits of the latest in HDMI, but who are unable or unwilling to install an 11-channel speaker system.
If you're looking for a 7.2 channel pre-pro that focuses on suberb sound quality and the latest in video capabilities, your search ends here!
