In case you didn't see, Outlaw Audio is finally releasing a processor:

Model 975 7.1 HDMI AV Surround Processor

Unusual to see a slimline, but I always wondered why they needed to be so tall without amps. The unit isn't what I'm looking for, but I like the reasonable price, the look, and I'm happy Outlaw was able to complete it. If they make a higher model with a little more robust feature set, multiple subwoofer outs, and balanced XLR connections, I'd consider them.
