I am actually considering getting 2 x 2200's for my M80's so I can reduce the draw from my AVR.

624 for two shipped is not bad...and a 30 day trial window is good enough to realize if they are necessary or not.

That's what I did to drive my M80's. I'm happy with them! Let us know what you think!

Placed the order. I have been told MY HK AVR7300 is plenty..but I have been having some power related issues in regard to dvd viewiing through the AVR. I figured I would try the monoblocks to see what the end result is.

Thank a lot guys You are a great help. One more question. What is a difference between preamp and receiver?
Is that the same thing?

Very simplistic answer. The receiver has everything the preamp has plus built in amplifiers.

Outlaw's 970 Prepro is the same as the Outlaw 1070 Receiver except the 1070 has amplification.

Pre-Amp is your Audio Video processor.
A receiver can be a preamp if it has enough outputs for amplifiers. In other words. If your receiver is a 5.1 system...then you need to have dedicated outputs for 5.1 channels so you can attach amps.

7.1 - 8 outputs.
etc.

Hope that helps.

Ah ok. Now it's a bit more clear. Say I bought Outlaw 1070 Receiver. Can I combine it with 2 of their 2200 monoblocks?
Then sice Outlaw 1070 Receiver has it's own amplification I can add speakers and directly hook them into 1070 without needing to buy more amps later when I decide to go 5.1 or 7.1?
Basically what I'm thinking is get a pair of M80 speakers, two Outlaw 2200 monoblocks and Outlaw 1070 receiver and enjoy 2 speaker set up for a while.
Then after a while just get additional speakers for 5.1 or 7.1 set up and hook them directly into Outlaw 1070 without having to buy more amps.
Would this work?

Yes, you can add amplification to a receiver as long as it has pre-amp outputs...which the 1070 has. Then you would let the receiver power the rest of the speakers.

If you are intent on getting the outlaw receiver, I would first hook it up to your m80's and see what it can do. It should be able to drive your speakers to really loud listening levels before hitting its limits.

If you feel you need more power after further testing, go ahead and order those monoblocks and rock out!

While you are looking, look at Denon 2805 - $399.

It's B-stock, but the price is hard to beat for a starter HT.

WOW good call bugbitten!!! Would this Denon receiver have preamp outputs? How would you compare this Denon to Outlaw 1070?
Which one would you choose?
