Unfortunately the market has already incorporated the technologies the Outlaw processor was going to be early to market with and the economy of scale is probably too great for a small company like Outlaw to overcome at this point. I would think that it will have a hard time competing with processors even below its projected cost and will go the route of the previous vaporware processors.

I hope that you are wrong and they maybe have something up their sleeve.

That is one long, long sleeve.

Seriously. I haven't seen anything truly eye/ear catching come out of Outlaw in 10+ years. I give them credit for helping me to ease into mid to higher end audio gear back in the 2005-2008 years with the 990 and 755 (mated to Maggie 1.6's) + some LFM-1's. People would visit my home and constantly compliment how amazing the system sounded for both 2ch and theater. The series of mulligans on the processor front ultimately turned me off to the brand entirely. Eventually Charlie Brown gets tired of the football getting pulled away. smile

I don't see how Outlaw can compete with the more modern AV processors and Monoprice now fills the niche of re-branding ATI and other higher end products at reasonable prices.

It was a great run while it lasted.

I dunno. There are all kinds of people that seem to enjoy audio and home theater. I am fortunate to live in an area that has a decent number of physical stores to demo gear and also has the large annual AXPONA show. There are just as many people looking for "good sound at good prices" as their people willing to spend a fortune -- http://hifitrends.com/2019/04/16/axpona-2019-show-report-high-end-audio-in-pictures/ vs http://hifitrends.com/2019/04/16/axpona-...nd-electronics/

The fact is the "well known for engineering prowess" firms have all kinds of bugs in their gear -- https://www.audioholics.com/av-preamp-processor-reviews/nad-m17v2


Ultimately it comes down to what sorts of "product experiences" happen.

Cambridge Audio has a retail store in one of the most "hipster" of Chicago's neighborhoods and they host interesting events like this one -- https://www.facebook.com/events/386431072212814/

Firms like Emotiva spend lots on more promotions than Outlaw but who knows how if that really translates into better profitability.

Meanwhile the CSO endured its longest strike in history -- https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/27/arts/music/chicago-symphony-strike.html Months ago Audio Consultants, who remains very heavily focused on traditional high end symphony type consumers, shuttered two of its three stores.


It is sort of weird but I bet if I were to ask my 17 year old or their friends if they have any idea what "Gateway" was they would shrug. In contrast if I asked them where the best place to try out new computers might be I am pretty darned sure they'd say "Apple Store". I continue to believe that while the sentiment of "best place to try out audio gear is in our own home" is accurate there still is a HUGE need to have a good "showroom experience". http://www.outlawaudio.com/about/about2.html The pendulum swings -- https://www.twice.com/retailing/svs-expands-dealer-sales-38955

Well Emotiva has put the XMC-2 on their processor order page.
It's not available yet but I am thinking it's coming soon.
I really wanted to wait for Outlaw to release their flagship unit but for me it is too late now.
