Have seen the price of the new 7000x @$949 shipped! But, have also read that Outlaw will be offering an even better deal. Does anyone know the details? :)


Cheers,

@KEW it does say "introductory combo price". As such, you may be right. Guess, Outlaw will post what the combo is soon. Just a bit curious myself. Thanks!

I think it is already posted! See the right side:

Not too exciting unless you are already planning to buy the Marantz.
If you were ready to pay Outlaw's price for the Marantz pre-pro, the 7000x costs $700 more.

They need to make a 9Ch or 11Ch Class-D amp. :D

I mean since the AV7705 and many other pre-pros can do 7.1.4.
Being a "music first" guy, I would get the 9 channels by buying a higher level stereo amp and use one of these to cover the center and surrounds.
Or, since I tend towards AVR's rather than Pre-Pros, divvy up the channels between this and the AVR!

My bad. Did not see that. Dealing with some kind of active infection on my desktop. Not in the market as HT is not my thing. Just trying to get the info out there for those that may be interested. Thanks!

Good luck with the virus thing!
Hopefully, someone will get on-board to help you out!
Thanks KEW. Hopefully, I will not have to reload Windows 10 in order to get rid of the active infection. But, if that is what it takes I will. After being very sick from my Thanksgiving dinner, this is the last thing that I needed. However, there really is never a good time for such things. So, it is what it is. Have a feeling it is going to cost me some significant money to get rid of it. :(


Cheers,

I think for practical benefits, it is better to have 3, 4, and 8 channel amps and forget about the 7 channel version, given that there are no shortages of 2 and 5 channel amps by default.

People can then buy:
5.1 - One single amp.
7.1 - One single amp, biamp the center if the owner wants to give it a little more juice.
9.1 - Two amps, 8 channel amp + a mono block, or two 4 channel amps.
11.1 - Two amps.
13.1 - Two amps.

The 7 channel version has very limited applications/flexibility as it does not really "add up" all that well.:D
For the 7 channel version to be more viable, it needs to be modular, with up to 2 slots for 2 more amps, any more than that will be killed off by @TLS Guy preemptively..

Maybe the problem with more than 7CH amp is the All-Channel Power measurements on the bench.

I don’t understand why Yamaha can’t make their MX-A5100/5200 11Ch amps measure something like 100W x 11Ch Driven (instead of going into protection mode). :D

Is that very difficult?

You mean mixing amps and such? :eek:

I think I may be OCD or something. I like matching things too much. :D

Imo, not easy nor too difficult, they didn't do it most likely because there is no need, no practical benefits, so why waste resources on that instead of focussing on things that counts, unless there is no cost and time and constraint.

EZ to do but very costly...
  • Bigger chassis
  • Larger heat sinks
  • Higher current output devices
  • Increased power supply
Absolutely Yamaha can increase the design specs as requested but is it really required and will the market accept/pay the increased cost.

Just my $0.02... ;)
