Outlaw announced that it has had to roll with the times and increase prices on some of its most popular offerings. The 7500 and 7700 multi-channel amps are still the most affordable products in their class despite the modest price increase.
Effective July 1st '06 Outlaw had to bend to market forces that increases the cost of certain raw materials used high quality power amps. Material like minerals used in heat syncs and transformers and the fuel to move them to manufacturing have been rising with cost of everything these days. Outlaw, the top Home Theater direct-to-consumer manufacturer had to raise prices on a couple of its best products.
Model 7700 is a seven channel at 200 Watts RMS power amplifier that will now sell for $2,498. The 7500 is a five channel at 200 Watt RMS power amplifier that will now sell for 1,599, that's a slight $100 increase. The two power amps will deliver 200 Watts into 8-Ohms with 20 Hz - 20 kHz with all channels driven with a total harmonic distortion of under .03%. These amps employ what Outlaws calls its differential design, a common-mode rejection technology that will reduce crosstalk to greater than -100dB.
The two power amps have power supplies capable of holding up under tremendous current. They use custom designed dual toroidal transformers that feature multiple windings for each channel. When the action in the soundtrack really heats up and each channel is being driven to high volume, that's when a good power supply will shine. The toroidal style transformers really hold up well. The amplifiers provide possibly the cleanest pure power for their price on the market.
