I was thinking about getting a couple to run my M80's off of,would these guys play nice at loud levels? I want to take some stress off my 9.2 amp.

I assume you are talking about the 2200's as they are the only monos? I've heard they are pretty potent little animals, at least when talking to my Outlaw forum gurus. They are a different design, not strictly A or A/B, but a A/B/G design. It will provide Class A/B power up to 80 watts (which covers about 98% of most listening situations). Above 80 watts the Model 2200 will instantly shift into Class G amplification. Some like this design, others don't, mostly this allowed them to have a smaller/stackable mono that puts out a lot of efficient power.

I have the 7700, and of all the external amps I've owned, so far it is my favorite, although I did like my Odyssey mono's as well.

Thanks Randy, I've heard people getting these for each speaker, up to nine channels. shocked What is class G and will they handle a 4 ohm load?

Not sure what class G is (will need to google amp classifications) but I know the 2200 will handle 4 ohm loads, lots of owners run them with 4ohm speakers with no problems, not to mention they list 4 ohm in the specs.

I know on the Outlaw forums there are many people driving a lot of so called "hard to drive" speakers. They are rated to handle 4ohm speakers. I know at one time Bugbitten, who hasn't posted here in awhile was driving m80's with the model that preceeded the 2200. I know they are stackable as well, and if you buy in quantaties I think they give you a discount.

One problem with buying a lot of these is you will have a lot of power cords to plug in. smile I don't know a lot about the G topology, however, my understanding is that in higher demand situations, it only takes 2 microseconds, .000002 of a second, to transition from A/B to G, it is inaudible, and allows for them to make a powerful, small footprint amp.

Here is a review of the older 200, they even used one of JohnK's favorite CD's Holst Planets in the review. smile

and another from a user over on Outlaw..

http://www.prillaman.net/m200_review.html

All of Outlaw amps are built by ATI (this is a good thing) right here in the U.S., per specs given by the Outlaws. However, the 2200 is built oversees in Taiwan by their supplier, again it has to meet their specs and design needs to be badged an Outlaw. smile

Ordered two of these from Outlaw. That should make my M80's happy and my other amp will just run the center and surrounds.

Yup, they shipped today and only $70.00 to the island. I will probably get a big bill from Purolator tho.(taxes and brokerage fees).
