Hello Outlaws!

I'm thrilled to hear the news (as of October 4, 2017) that production is about to begin on the 976. However, I saw no word in that announcement about the Atmos/DTS-X processor.

According to the update from January 2017, "As soon as production starts on the Model 976, our engineering teams will redouble their efforts on our Atmos/DTS-X processor. As mentioned, it is based on the same underlying platform as the Model 976, but utilizes two DSPs and additional DACs for a 7.2.4 channel configuration. It will add additional connectivity options and a few other features that many of you have asked for."

Can anyone (Outlaw Ben? PeterT) as to the current state of this prior claim -- does it still hold true? Will efforts be focusing back on this processor?

Oh, and by any chance will it have stereo XLR inputs? A man can dream (specifically, a man can dream of getting an Oppo UDP-205 and mating it to an Outlaw processor).

Still loving my 990, of course, so no hurry. ;-)

Thanks!

I know you Outlaws are close to the vest on release dates, but are you still at least planning on making the Atmos/DTS-X processor?

Hmm... Now that you mention it, I don't think we got the annual January update this year.

I was wondering the same thing. Hope they haven’t ran into any problems.

Wonder if this product is still going to be released? Been quite a while since an
update. I know I’m interested in hearing what it’s status might be.

I am guessing they are not going to say anything until they have a pretty definite ship date.
If you start hinting at a possible release date people will start pounding them if they don't meet that exact date.
I, for one, will wait patiently until it is released.
Just hope my 990 keeps on ticking!!!!

Personally I think it is dead in the water. There are too many cheaper units available from too many different manufacturers for this as yet un-named product to compete. Peter should give us some news or just tell us to move on.

I hope not.
I passed on the 976 simply because of not being able to rename inputs.
If push comes to shove and Outlaw doesn't release something in the next 6 months then I will go for the next generation Emotiva processor because it should be out well before that and the bugs should be worked out of it.
