1. A Pre/Pro setup
2. 2 = 1 Preamp and 1 amp
3. The Preamp is loaded with all the bells and whistles yet pretty slim for a preamp, which is meant to be stacked and connected to a slim sized amp. And as someone above indicated, a short stack consists of two pancakes. Which is equal to the one pre amp and one amp.

Please God!!!

It's a short stack of three-chip DLP projectors. Outlaw must have concluded that 12 stacked DLP projectors didn't qualify as "short" so they have "shortened" it down to 6 stacked DLP projectors. With 6, we can have extra-bright pictures at any aspect ratio without having to worry about brightness loss.

On the other hand, they could be 10 Sony G90's housed in Outlaw chassis. Maybe Outlaw will be able to offer the "short stack" of G90's to us for $10k each! Boy, I would jump at that offer.

1) Bandwidth balanced interconnects
2) 6 needed for 5.1
3) short in length

or
1) Silver bullet interconnects
2) Six (as in bullets)
3) Short in length ( like an Outlaws six shooter)

A Short Stack is...

a) Made up of wires
b) There are 6 going from the player to the ICBM, and another 6 from the ICBM, 12 total.
c) The wires only run a short length.


Second guess, same as first but:

b) Only 6 wires


Third guess (!), same as first but:

b) 6 from the player and 7 out from the ICBM - the extra supporting the dual sub configuration, 13 total.

Alternatively, a Short Stack is:

a) made of CDs
b) there are several in the stack
c) the stack is short as it contains all the classic Outlaw #1 hits! :-)

Fun fun fun!

1. The name of the commodity: interconnects or dongles
2. The number of them in the "Stack": I agree with Deputy Perks , 6 in, 6 out for 12 total.
Possibly 6 in, and 7 out (dual subwoofers) for a total of 13.
OR possibly 6 in and 5 out (no subwoofers) for a total of 11.
No wait, there would only be 6 since the ICBM would sit below/above a DVD-A player, but the distance from the ICBM to the pre/pro/receiver could be greater (or vice versa).
Ack! Dual subs, so there may be 7.

3. Why they are a "Short Stack": Let's see, a bunch of aging audio geeks looking enviously at a dozen pieces of 12" heavy cable. Obviously, the "short" portion is Freudian (or wishful thinking).

It may also be due to the diminutive size of the unit. Since the ICBM will be basically an active crossover, it shouldn't be too large. Most 5.1 inputs are spaced relatively close, so the "short stack" could refer to a bundle of short interconnects joined together.

Well here are my thoughts. A short stack means 2 pancakes. Thus you need 2 of something. I assume that the ICBM is some sort of bass management control for DVD-A. The short stack I'm assuming is an interconnect that bundles 6 coax into one connector. Say a firewire connector. Thus you need a short stack(2 of the interconnects described above) to connect the DVD-A to a Pre/Pro withe ICBM in the middle.

1) 1 pre/pro/tuner (w/ all the new HT sound formats) w/ 7 monoblock amps
2) 8
3) Although 8 certainly isn't a small number, 8 stacked components has the potential to be short!
