Wow! Discontinued already and I haven't even installed mine into my system to replace my 975. Yes, my 976 has been sitting in my closet since I bought it. Procrastination plus a very busy last year before retiring from 3M Company after a great, fun 38.75 year career. I will soon finally install my 976 - hope it doesn't have problems as it's now out of warranty.

Are there any plans to replace this with something newer when parts become available again? Frankly, I'm worried about being able to buy anything from Outlaw in the future. A/V processors just can't be found almost anywhere, regardless of brand, but I'd like another Outlaw in the future if possible.

Why would it be out of warranty?

The 976 warranty is 3 years.

Yup, out of warranty. Looks like Outlaw has no pre/pro, not even any B stock and no hint of planned future model. I guess that with so many people streaming audio nowadays, the pre/pro market is tiny.

Kind of makes you think that Outlaw wont be around much longer.
You either innovate or die.

Well Parasound is still around after getting out of the Pre/pro biz before the advent of HDMI.

But I agree. I hope Outlaw is working on SOMETHING to follow up the otherwise successful 976. I suppose releasing something worthy of the Outlaw name at their position* in the market.
*great brand products delivering SQ above, perhaps well above their $.

Until recently I’ve shied away from thinking about an Atmos or equivalent system. My reason stems from 10-12 years ago, the mantra: better to do 5.X channels well* than make a mediocre attempt at 7.X channels. In 2-3 years I’ll have a different and sufficient space to do 7 channels as well as I’ve done 5 in a smaller space**. I’m considering I could nearly as easily do 5.X***.4 well* in the same space. I prefer Outlaw’s approach to the pre/pro world almost as much as my wallet! I thoroughly enjoyed the upgrade of the 975****. The 976 took my system to the next level in several ways****. But enough mindless rambling…
*well to me is a separate discussion entirely
** too many try to cram 10 lbs of system into a 5 lb space
***yet another discussion!
****975 for sale! Have a package deal that includes a 5 ch THX certified amp

So Outlaw Audio: what ya up to?!

Thanks all. Merry Christmas.
Tony
