I would love to have a 9 or 11 channel system with Atmos but it is just not practical for me being in a one bedroom apt. That is why I am so interested in the 976. It would suit my needs for now. By the way, I do have quite a number of 3D blurays and I continue to buy them whenever I can. I hope they don't go away completely. The last 3D bluray I bought was Passengers and it looks fantastic on my LG Oled. The 4K looks very nice as well. Here's hoping the 976 will be out by the end of the year. I know Outlaw wants to release a quality product.

Yeah. Easter.

So this has me curious... how much power are you going to pump in that apartment? I have a decently large space and rather inefficient bipolar towers, so I was waiting (gave up) for the gobs of clean power from the 5000, but in a smaller space, wouldn't a Marantz NR1508 be a better choice? It's small, has sufficient clean power for that space, and since you won't be pushing its limits, the integrated amp should be indiscernable, no? Or is your experience different?

I don't need anymore than what I have already which is an Emotiva A700 amp. My living room is between 1500 and 2000cft and that amp is plenty for me but I don't usually play movies at reference level. Just a level that is comfortable for me.

There is more to be gained from having plenty of headroom with modestly sized speakers in a normal sized room than most folks realize -- http://www.6moons.com/industryfeatures/headroom/headroom.html
Quote:
To determine how much power you need for spirited sessions with orchestral reference material, consider that prolonged median 95dB of average playback levels measured at the listening seat are loud. This is something average loudspeaker sensitivities of 88dB/1w/1m will accomplish with less than 20 watts in an average room. To build in 20dB headroom above that median level for short-term peaks could require up to 2000 watts on paper since power proceeds in logarithmic function. Is that realistic - 2000 watts?

I agree with 975 destroyer that the 9.x and 11.x setups will be similar to 3D. They will suck a lot of $$$ but the effects will be just a passing fad. The studios will make more $$$ when they convert the older movies to object oriented formats and sell them yet again. The manufacturers obviously make more $$$ when they offer the latest and greatest gizmos to take advantage of all the new tech. Look at how the Beatles music has been repackaged and resold to the public over and over again. Many of the 70s and 80s bands are re-racking their music to pull even more $$$ out of our pockets. This all techno-wizardry and really is just a marketing ploy.

@J.H., you do realize it's been eleven days since the last post and EIGHT months since the announcement. If you care WHEN it will happen, it's not worth it. Either you're a member of Outlaws-Forever, in which case you'll wait, or you have a life. But you can only pick one.
