In order to properly use the ICBM, you'll need something besides the product
itself. However, this contest is the reverse of the last one: This time we're
telling you what the name is, but you need to guess some things about the
product.

The Outlaws cooked this one up while sitting around their chuck wagon one
morning for breakfast. So we decided to name it after the best item on the
menu, "The Short Stack". We'll award a complete Short Stack (but without the
butter and maple syrup - too many calories for the Outlaws these days!) to
the first TWO entrants who correctly describe what The Short Stack is. To win
you need to properly describe the following:

1. The name of the commodity.
2. The number of them in the "Stack".
3. Why they are a "Short Stack".

In the spirit of the Outlaws, we'll also award one Short Stack to the best
comic answer.

Decision of the Outlaws is FINAL, and we cannot be responsible for entries
that are sent by you, but not received by our server and posted on the proper
area of our web site. (Please remember that the user name and password issued
for the Saloon is CASE SENSITIVE, and that is the reason why some entries to
the first contest did not make it to the board.) All entries must be posted
to the Outlaw Saloon discussion board no later than 11:59 PM. PDT, May 1,
2001, or sent by mail to our postal address, with a postmark no later than
the same deadline. Outlaw employees, vendors and their families are not
eligible.

Good luck, partners!

1. Interconnects (also known as wires).
2. Eight (8) (for 7.1 output from DVD-A/SACD).
3. They'll be short (1/3 to 1/2 meter) to fit between either the Source and the ICBM or between the ICBM and the Pre/Pro/Receiver.

I think Pat has this one wrapped up. But just in case the obvious isn't the right answer...

1. a DVD-Audio player
2. 1
3. Hey, any stack that only contains one item must be short, right?

1. a grouping of interconnects
2. six
3. because the ICBM would be placed between the DVD-Audio/SACD player and pre/pro (maybe close to either or both), and there would only be the need for "short" cables

1. stereo analog interconnects

2. two

3. A short stack of pancakes is 2, full stack is 3. So, a short stack from Outlaw is a pair of stereo interconnects.

1)
The "Short Stack" is the new HI-FIDELITY component isolators.

Outlaw spent long hours and rigorous testing to find the best combinations of pancake powder and water to make up these fantastic vibration dampeners. Then using a space-age (and patent-pending) secret process known only as 'Hot Skillet Cooking™' , create the engineer designed circular Short Stack "Cakes"

*available in two colors, 'natural' and 'well done' to appease any WAF requirements.

2)There are 4 of these unique 'cakes' to place under your vibration-sensitive components. Lab testing concluded that 4 'cakes' were the optimal number to support most commercial components.

3)The name 'Short Stack' references the product's signature ability. Breakthroughs in acoustical science allowed Outlaw to provide a modular isolation system for all your audiophile needs. If you have a cd transport that is prone to vibration issues, or just too close to your 5 subwoofers, take two sets of Short Stacks and double it up! while 4 'cakes' can seriously improve your systems sound, 8 'stacked' cakes has been tested to triple your systems audio quality. Your music never sounded so 'lush', 'warm', or 'vibrant'. The imaging of your speakers, or any speakers, will become so 'precise' that you will feel like you are 'there'. The difference will be like 'night and day'.

*Optimal performance will be gained from using 47 'cakes' per piece of equipment.

*Not suggested for use in households with pets or small children.

1. interconnects
2. 6
3. ˝ meter or less lengths to maintain singal integrity and because ICBM meant to be close to receiver b/c supplementing features.
