I thought the 997 uses Trinnov, not Audssey, for EQ.

I think that was the point. Lanion was saying that it is possible the Integra would have the height channels since it does use Audyssey, while the Outlaw, while being released later, might not. However, from what I've read elsewhere, height speakers are a possibility with Trinnov.

I just saw in the looooong Sherwood thread at AVS that Jeff (with Sherwood) indicated that the 972 is scheduled to hit the port on June 6, they will then go through QC and expect sufficient quantities to go to dealers by mid July. That should put the 997 into mid September at the earliest...so I'd assume seeing the 997 available in mid October.

Which? R-972 or Model 997?

The Sherwood R-972 information that Alex mentioned is the latest we have - first production run due to be in port roughly now (yesterday), followed by final QC and probably installation of firmware updates before distribution to dealers. How long will that take? No clue. I'd guess Alex's mid-July is probably a good guess (including QC, firmware revisions, installation of final production firmware, and shipping to dealers).

Add 60 days to that, and the earliest Outlaw is supposed to be able to have Model 997's would be mid-August. Murphy's law says the earliest is likely to be difficult to achieve, so extend past that as you see fit. I'm going to guess somewhere between September and October, but there's a sprinkling of pessimism in that.

LOL. That's the same Jeff that emailed me back in March and told me the R972 would arrive "sometime in April." laugh

Given that even Sherwood doesn't have the final product in their hands yet (as of information I've seen until today, June 8), I think Gonk's somewhat pessimistic estimate is likely to be fairly accurate.

Best,

Where did you hear/read that they don't have the final product in hand yet? All I've seen is that they haven't said one way or the other if it had been received in port or not. It doesn't seem to me like most companies would issue a press release for something like that.

I've been thinking about the 997 since it's was announced, and for me, the two most disappointing omissions are:

1) No HD radio tuner.

2) No network connection for either firmware upgrades or network streaming. This is probably the most glaring omission for me. I'm just starting to convert all of my CDs to FLAC files to be stored on a network drive. It would have been very cool to access all of these files right from the 997, instead of having to buy yet another accessory.

Neither would keep me from purchasing a 997, but they would have been great value-add features that could help extend the life of this new processor.

Very excited about the Trinnov feature, by the way.

Someone posted this question on AVS...


"I'm also waiting (seems like forever now) for the 997. eek
I saw somebody post a few pages back that the mic cable is 15' long, does anybody know if it can be extended with a regular CAT5 patch cord?
My rack is outside my room, I'm not sure if 15' would be enough for me..."

I second this question as my equipment is in a separate room and I would require at least 30 feet of cord to reach my money spot.

Yes, a CAT 5 coupler and additional CAT 5 cabling is all that would be needed to extend the reach of the mic cable.
