Back some time ago Outlaw, and I believe Sherwood Newcastle, was looking at using Trinnov, well as we know dates came and went and nothing ever happened.

Looks like the new 978 due out pretty soon will have Audyssey MultEQ XT32. smile

Scott from Outlaw anounces 978!

Don't announce it until you're shipping it...

Well, as much as I like the Outlaw stuff(I own 2 multi-channel amps), I will believe all this when I see it. The 978 is the THIRD NEW product announcement in the last two plus years with nothing to show for it yet and add to that it was recently announced because of additional design changes, it has been delayed a few months further down the road before it is "officially" available. Previously it was to be the 998 with the Trinnov processing, which has now been delayed indefinitely and this was to replace the 997 that was NEVER introduced. All apparently because of Sherwood, on whose base platform the Outlaw Pre-Pro(997) was to be built, and that was all cancelled as Outlaw decided after the better part of a year, it just wasn't going to work and decided to go it alone on future products, hence, further delays and still no new product.

As I stated at the beginning, don't hold your breath and given all the false promises and still nothing happening, I will believe it when I see it. If the 978 does come to pass, it will more than likely be late 2011 before it is available and given the choices out there now and price competition at its peak, with the preliminary speculation on its pricing and features, unfortunately, it doesn't look like the 978 is going to be much in they way of a breakthrough product anyway.

Building amps is one thing, but getting a pre-pro right and working with all the technology suppliers involved, legal aspects, and testing is another. The outlaws are a good bunch of guys, their amp history proves that no question. I'm sure the product once released will be top notch, and have a good following.

Given what has gone on in the last couple of years, I can only hope that you turn out to be accurate in your assessment.

I haven't followed the entire soap opera myself, and to let you know when I said "winner" in the title of my post, I was talking about Audyssey being selected over Trinnov, which was a smart partnership, if it happens. smile

Me and Bob Kay live about 5 minutes away from Outlaw. do you want us to go over there and steal a preproduction model for you?

I have no idea but I have always wondered. I might go over one day just to see. It may be just a corporate office or a warehouse or something.
