All I want is a processor that handles the new HD audio formats & sounds at least as good as my 990. I really don't care about Trinnov. Has any thought been given to producing such an animal?

If you are not interested in Trinnov how about processing the new audio formats in the BluRay player versus the pre/pro? If that works for you then the Oppo BDP-83 or its upgraded version feeding your 990 will meet your requirements. The Oppo has video processing on board that dramatically improves DVDs too. Now you won't have video processing on other inputs (e.g. TV, game consoles) or the convenience of single HDMI cables you'd get with the 997 but those things may or may not be a big deal for you.

Although I'm interested in the Trinnov I have to tell you I am extremely happy with my 990 and its analog inputs for movies and SACD from my Oppo-83.
The video goes straight to tht TV. smile

Outlaw really made a great product (990)

I like that the 990 fits well with the BDP-83. But I hope the match with the PR-SC886 will be better for my main system. I don't expect big things from the Trinnov if your room is anywhere near normal. I am sure Audyssey will do a fine job of any correction I might need.

Well, my patience finally ran out, as did my willpower. Last year's Christmas gift was supposed to be a 997. This year's Christmas gift was supposed to be a 997. Looks like there was going to be another lump of coal this year, so today the wife OK'd pulling the trigger on an Integra DHC-80.1. Will have it in a week or two. It is a mix of joy and sadness. I do not blame the Outlaws as the delay is really beyond their control. The 997 will undoubtedly be a unit well worth the wait and delivering much more than it's cost will suggest. I will take another look once it is released to be sure. But the new Integra offering seems to have all I could want (my HT use is 95% for movies). Will hopefully make a fine match with my Outlaw amp.

It's a very reasonable idea. For all we know, something like that's in development - but at this point, I doubt we'll see much discussion of it until they have a product ready to ship.

Like mgdurand, my patience ran out as well. I get my DHC80.1 on Friday. Too bad, as I too held out for nearly two Christmas's.

Nice rig. I'd be curious to hear how that works out for you. Moving again soon so that's always a good time to sneak in an upgrade. To the casual non-audio observer, it looks enough like the 990. :p

thats the thing isnt it ritz2; some guys just say good luck; they have to do something to diss.

I've patiently waited and the 972 threads I've been following have been ominous on trinnov effectiveness. Outlaw has been very quiet, and the least they could have done is give the smallest update. Given that they chose silence; I bailed as I have a 15 amp system, and frankly I'm tired of waiting.

Good luck in your purchase; I'll be 9.2 on Saturday morning.
