Pat,

I'm happy to say that I'm still using my 1050 with a 750 amp. I was waiting to upgrade to an HDMI capable preamp, and then eventually a 7 output power amp. Yet, for the upgrade, as to why I'm not taking advantage of the 975, I want HDMI input wiht XLR output. I'm really thinking about the Marantz AV7701 with a Marantz MM8077 power amp. I've been very loyal to Outlaw, and would love to see a similar preamp, that has HDMI input and XLR outputs. (yet I haven't upgraded my sub to an XLR input one yet) Thoug, should I consider going with the Outlaw wireless system? That is a possibility, but I have concerns. Anyone else have input on my wants and needs. For, I do fear that my 1050 may go out soon, but I hope not! (knock on partical board or better yet fine cherry wood board)

-Trout

I use the Outlaw OWA3 to signal my sub and it works very well. Unless you have issues with interference in your signal cables or very long runs between the components XLR cables will not provide a significant difference in quality of signal.

Hello Xenon,

So, I guess your saying that the XLR is not that much of an advantage, huh?

As to the OWA3, I wasn't exactly thinking of it for a sub. I was considering getting two 2200 to have as the power for my rears I currently have. That's to get rid of the long speaker cables I have running under a rug in my media room. Though I might go with 3, and move my sub, but I guess where I have it placed now it doesn't exactly bother the neighbors.

What are your thoughts about using it for rear audio channels, especially with the 2200s?

Thanks,

Trout

The OWA3 would work great for the rear surrounds. There is also an amplified version, the OWAA3 which would probably work well for rear surrounds since they don't need as much power. The 2200s might be overkill for rear surrounds but could be great as a second zone with the OWA3.

I just finished watching part of Star Trek (2009) on my system with my trusty 1050 at the helm. I bought this unit new from Outlaw in 2001 and everything is still working like a champ.

Outlaw separates will eventually be in my future, but for now I am still enjoying the 1050's sound. I streamed an old 80's movie, in pro-logic this weekend, and am still very impressed with it's processing in this old legacy format.

I've got a pristine 1050 w/o remote.. and the volume knob issue. What can I reasonably expect to get for it on the used market do you think? I was thinking about offering it up along with a Harmony 688.

Around Christmas time last year I saw a couple sell on eBay around the $125.00 - $150.00 area. I was looking at the market then when I was hoping we'd be able to upgrade to the 975. Now that we've upgraded, though, I kinda don't want to part with the 1050. I'd rather set it up in another room as a second system but I still need to get some speakers for it.

I found one of these locally last year for $100 with the volume control issue. I cleaned up the rotary encoder, and this receiver does daily duty in my man cave system.

I managed to make my TV switch the HDMI, then the coax digital out from the TV feeds the receiver.
