Not given to impulsive behavior, but it does look good, I'm going Bowling Green to a dealer to hear one. The reports I see say that the DSX/new dolby format are nuances; with new speakers up front running about 20 dB less than the front speakers (high or wide > if its either DSX or Dolby.

I'll listen to a 997 before buying if at all possible

Maybe Scott or Peter could drop a few hints about how the testing is going to keep our hopes ablaze. I would like to know about the DACs. The 886 really interests me but I would like to know more about how the Trinnov is working out. We gotta be getting close, how bout some hints.

I agree. The reports of the Sherwood Newcastle are not encouraging. It's still hopeful that the issues can be corrected through firmware updates, but problems and silence aren't very heartening.

Noticed another non-Outlaw product on the home page (Qsonix 105). Don't know if it has been here for a while and I just missed it. Still not even a hint about the status of the 997. Given that it is almost the middle of November, I am becoming less and less optimistic about the chances of a 997 under the Christmas tree. Will keep checking, though. There must be some idea if the unit will be ready to ship in time for Xmas. Any chance?

avsforum reports are coming in and it doesn't sound good for the Newcastle unit as it currently exists, however most of the complaints seem very fixable via firmware updates.

Yes, it isn't very confidence inspiring at all.

My experience with firmware updates solving hardware problems has been a mixed bag. With my LG Blu-ray players, the firmware updates solved all the problems. With my Samsung blu-rays, the firmware updates were a disaster solving nothing.

Given the deafening silence here as to the status of the 997, I am coming to the conclusion that Santa will not have a 997 for me in his bag this year.

I am beginning to wonder what Outlaw is thinking.
Everybody is just begging for any information on the 997 but they seem to be spending their time trying to find other products to add to their line that are so high priced that the normal blue collar working class guy, like me, wouldn't even consider it.
Like a $4400 two channel management sytem.
I mean come on.
Are they trying to become an internet company for the rich and famous?

But it does everything iTunes can do, plus it costs $4400 more. I agree, the Outlaws had better start focusing on what they do best or they will find themselves up the creek without a Posse. Lets get the 997 on the street and forget all this other junk. If its not going to be ready for Xmas then say so! I'll have to suffer with the 886 or another 990. Any chance they put the 990 on sale for Xmas? Apply my $200 discount towards the 886 and Ill order one tomorrow.

A 990 with HDMI...I would jump. I starting to feel like Trinnov is not going to do anything for me and my BDP-83 does most of the work otherwise.
