I was so excited to get all of my equipment and finally get it all set up this past Friday. I got the combo package from Outlaw which included the 975 pre, the Model 5000 amp and the Oppo UDP 203. I then went out on bought an SVS PC2000 sub and am using Tekton Pendragon's for the front soundstage. Don't have any surrounds hooked up yet but wired it for that. So far I am VERY impressed with this setup. I need to dial it in and mess with the settings some more but it sounds pretty good right out of the box.

Welcome to the forum. I'm sure you'll enjoy you combo even more when you get the surround speakers in.

You should enjoy that set-up. If you have any questions regarding settings do not hesitate to ask. Barring any catastrophic room issues you should find the 975 up to the task. We love ours

Thanks!I certainly will. And I saw you had 3 different set ups, that's awesome. That's what brought me to Outlaw, I was using my 2 channel rig as my main multimedia set up and although it worked, I wanted more. Dynamics, 5.1 surround, lossless DTS and Dolby Digital, HDMI connections and so on. I unfortunately do not have the luxury of having multiple systems so I sold off my two channel gear, which made me VERY sad because it sounded amazing, but am very happy with the multichannel system I was able to put together.

My constant acquisition of equipment over the last 40 some years has left me the ability to set up too many different systems for my wife and family to keep track of. I just never seem to get rid of any of the stuff I have acquired. The wife is constantly harping on me to get rid of some stuff but I just don't I am in the process of setting up a system for my garage with some old stuff I have had for 40 years. Have fun with you setup.

So after a lot of tinkering and calibrating and really getting everything dialed in. I spent the weekend in audio bliss. Man. The sound is detailed, dynamic, effortless and pretty much some of the best sound I have got out of an audio system. I am not turning it up past a -25 and the speakers and amp aren't even breaking a sweat. I had the 5000 on for like 7 hours on Friday and it wasn't even hot. For less money than many mid level AVR's, it's a no brainer. I am SO glad I sent back the Yamaha RXA-1050 and went this route!

Cool that you are digging the new combo.

I was and still am impressed with the sq from the 975. We went from a straight 2.0 set using a Nelson Pass designed preamp feeding through an OPPO handling the downmixing with mixed results at best. I knew tv and movies would be better but expected to take a big hit in quality for straight music. We were happily surprised when things turned out so well.

Yeah, I was expecting the same thing. That on movies it was going to be ridiculous but on serious 2 channel music that it was going to be mediocre at best. Boy was I wrong. Now is it as good on music as my dedicated dac and Decware combo was? No. But still pretty darn impressive. That brings up a question I have. So I know the 976 is right around the corner and I might get that for different reasons but one of them is the pure analog stage. So do you think the dac's in the Oppo UDP-203 are better than the dac's in the 975? But I know the dac's in the 976 are going to be better than the ones in the 975, how better? Who knows.
