It must be either a 2 channel amp or a pony.

Not sure which is serious and which isn't.

I am guessing a CD player. It seems like a logical step, although I do like the one or two channel amp idea. Either way, after this post I got the humor one in the bag.

Hmmm

If 10xx are receivers, 9xx are Pre/Pros, 7xx[x] are amplifiers, it seems like a new category.

My [meager] experience with marketing types would make me suspect the next ICBM would cash in on that models success and be ICBM2 or something.....

Either Outlaw is breaking their model naming system or something new is on the horizon.

Well since my other guesses are all taken and you have to be the first to say it, I'll take a wild stab that it'll be a receiver that is based on the 7100 amplifier and the 950 preamp.

for a not so serious guess... its a device that is worn on the body almost like the electronic dog collars; it sends an electric shock anytime someone thinks they hear hiss.

(Edit: Almost what kugumby said, but this one starts when the person hears the hissing)

Good one JHoff80. I think it's a dvd player. Not sure what's on it yet, probably some good stuff. I'd say with the value the 1050 had as a receiver when it came out.

It could also be an omnipoint player. It will accept any type of media. Has no interconnects because it is one device. Sound comes from one point, sound comes from every point. It plays the full range of sound, automatically equalizing itself for all frequencies and every location in the room. It can play up to just short of your eardrums bursting ,unless you hear a hiss in which case it will go until your head explodes.

Well, I hate to rain on Outlaw's little parade here, but I know what the Model 200 REALLY is.

Last weekend I was snooping around the Outlaw's facilities, and I came across this engineering design drawing. It looks like it was from an earlier brainstorming session, but I would bet that most of the features are still there. It appears to be a tube-based personal stereo system. In fact, it appears that the 2xx family will be all portable "devices". I think the Outlaws have made a wise decision here, as there really aren't any high quality, audiophile grade portable stereos out there. I guess I would have preferred they went with a 300B tube instead of the 12AX7's, but such is life. Looks like they have spared no expense on this one - 4ga solid platinum headphone cord, hiss rejection circuitry, even a special body suit and boots.

I guess they are even planning several accessories to go with the Model 200, including a portable reel-to-reel, portable laser disk player, and even a nuclear powered auxiliary power supply. Looks like they have their bases covered.


I scanned in the engineering drawing so you would have proof:

Wow. Somebody here has a little bit too much time on his hands.

For my humorous guess... well, I was never too good at humor, so I'm just going to say that it's a conch shell.
