I have slipped down the slippery slope from #1 to #3. Currently looking forward to the news from Peter at week's end.

I've gone through stages 1-4 and am close to becoming a 5. I started building my system a little over 2 years ago but was in no rush. I actually started with the intentions on buying a 990 but when the whole HDMI thing took off, I figured I'd wait until Outlaw's next processor. I started getting all the other components and as you can see from my signature there's one thing missing. I've thought about buying a $300.00 receiver to use in the meantime but then I'd have to pursuade to the wife why it wasn't good enough come upgrade time. I'm cautiously on edge waiting for Peter T's news at weeks end, but also close to pulling the trigger on an Integra DHC 80.1. I've considered ADCOM GTP-870HD (not HDMI 1.3), NAD and Rotel comparable products but they don't have balanced outs. I've also wanted to give Outlaw every chance possible for my business. So here I am. Now a 4.

Was a 5 long before the Outlaws flushed the 997. I bought a Marantz HDMI receiver at least a year ago and use it as a prepro and video switcher only. Time to market is critical in this day and time. Outlaw should have rebadged something a year ago. Life is too short to wait on some pie in the sky wonder box. I have been enjoying Blu-ray and the attendant audio codecs for some while while Outlaw has been losing sleep and sales. Too bad.

The 997 should NOT be listed as "discontinued" because it never was "continued". It should be listed as "cancelled"!

While many of us potential customers have been waiting patiently or impatiently and may be very disappointed or even angry, we did not lose any money. However, I'm sure Outlaw has lost a big chunk of change, lots of man or woman hours, and some credability.

I hope they have a lot more success with the 998!

Cancelled or whatever doesn't really matter to me. It is dead and gone so time to move on to the next big thing. I am just wondering if they are going to transfer everyones information to a new waiting list or if they will start a completely new list for the 998. Also, I have waited this long and I guess I will stay aboard what has now become the 998 ship. I just hope they give us regular updates on their progress.

Given that they have more control this time, more updates are a possibility, but I'm not holding my breath...
