    I was in the same state of mind a few weeks ago when I bought a turntable off ebay. 2 weeks later and it finally arrived. Once you get it you won't even remember the wait. ;)

    Default "The Waiting is the Hardest Part"

    I think Mr. Petty got it right. I am waiting for an Outlaw ICBM to use with my SACD player. Delivery date is Monday the 16th.

    Danny,

    Once you get the Outlaw ICBM all set up and tweaked... please give us a review. Also list your speakers and system. I'm very interested in the Outlaw. I don't know anyone who has one for SACD or DVD-a.

    thanks, Al

    Danny,
    What speakers are you using? I'm curious as well regarding how good the bass management of the ICBM is.


    As for what I'm getting, I just can't keep it a secret anymore! I am getting a ......

    EDIT: Let me take a guess, an outlaw 950? if so, that is sweet! I saw your 7100 and wonder if it has the same design philosophy as the Sherbourn 7100? congrats!

    I am sorry, I have no opinion on the matter. I am sure you do. So, don't mind me, I just want to talk audio and pie.

    Hey Frank,

    Congrats on the new pre/pro. I think comparative to the Pioneer there should be a major Sonic differance. You will be on the new high end Frontier because A pre/pro Variable Makes at least 20 times the improvement.

    Let me know how it sounds,

    AAARRRGGGGHHH!
    I stopped by my A/V shop today only to find out that my preamp just shipped today from the manufacturer, not last week! Another 7 days! I was so pissed that I nearly cancelled the order. But, after calming down I figured it was not the dealers fault, they were as shocked as I was! No sense pitching to much of a hissy fit, it won't make the feight company move any faster. Oh well, I guess I have more time to re-do my HT site.

    Frank,
    Agree hissy fittin' is a waste of time, but letting the dealer know how disappointed you are, in a calm, controlled way is not. They may just want to reward your staying with the order...

    Can you say, "Freebie(s)", I knew you could... Maybe just a cable or a disc or two, but WTH...
