I believe DSPs to be a thing of the past... before the DD and DTS formats become so prominent and dominant. DD EX and DTS ES are excellent competing formats that will demand all or the attention of the user.
On the other hand, Denon and several other manufacturers include 5 channel stereo, which I will use frequently for leisure TV watching and MP3 listening for chores around the house. 5 channel stereo, Logic 7, and other's ideas of filling every speaker with no added sound processing is a good thing, IMO
Jeremy...a new guy to Outlaw, but an old guy to Home Theater...I've been an on-line researcher of home theater for a little over a year, and I've been reading quite a bit about "Outlaw"...really looking forward to the release of this pre/pro, should be an exciting time for Home Theater enthusiasts
