I'm currently using a Yamaha RX-V3800 receiver with the Axiom Epic 60-500 7.1 speakers (see sig).
The system is great and I have no complaints, but I have always wanted to try separates with my Axiom speakers, and I'm considering the Outlaw Audio 975/7125 combo.
Can someone please help me compare the amplification/power of my Yamaha receiver vs. the Outlaw separates?
On paper it looks like the Yamaha has more power (140W x 7), but I'm not sure if that is as clean, or as powerful in an all-in-one receiver?
I'm not comparing the features of the Yamaha receiver to the Outlaw processor, I'm only comparing the amp and overall sound quality.
I don't want to replace the Yamaha with separates if the sound is equal or lesser.
Here are the specifications for both.
Please forgive me, as I don't really know how to decipher all of these specifications.
Thanks! Yamaha RX-V3800 Outlaw Audio 975 7.1 HDMI AV Surround Processor Outlaw Audio 7125 7-Channel Amplifier
