A NEW TREND IN CONSUMER ELECTRONICS - Over the past decade,
consumer electronics manufacturers have sold millions of home
theater surround sound systems designed for five or seven loudspeakers,
yet only in a relatively small percentage of homes do consumers
actually use more than two speakers. For music, many people, including
a large percentage of the "Golden Ear" audiophile crowd,
still prefer good old two-channel stereo. Now, with iPod and other
two-channel digital music technologies seemingly taking over the
world, some people in the consumer electronics industry are taking
a fresh look at dedicated stereo systems.
Outlaw Audio has resurrected the high performance analog stereo
receiver. The new Outlaw Audio Model RR 2150 "Retro Receiver"
offers state-of-the-art two-channel analog music performance in
a design, reminiscent of classic Art Deco table radios, that is
a refreshing alternative to the typical seven-channel big-black-box
home theater receiver.
According to Outlaw, "retro" does not mean old fashioned--there
is a USB input for connection to PCs, front-panel auxiliary input
for portable music players, and a state-of-the-art digital AM/FM
tuner. Like all Outlaw Audio products the RR 2150 is sold exclusively
through the company’s web site, www.outlawaudio.com.
"Five or seven speaker surround sound is great for movies,"
said Outlaw's president, Peter Tribeman, "but for music it
is still hard to beat the inherent simplicity of a traditional
stereo. Just two speakers for two ears…it’s elegant,
satisfying, and much easier on your room decor than having to
place a half-dozen or more speakers plus a subwoofer around your
The Outlaw Audio RR 2150 Retro Receiver provides an audiophile-grade
pure analog signal path from the phonograph and line-level analog
inputs all the way through to the speaker terminals. A 100-watts-per-channel
amplifier gives the Retro Receiver more than enough power to drive
large, full-range premium stereo speakers. Additionally, recognizing
that some people prefer to use smaller speakers with a separate
subwoofer, the RR 2150 is the first stereo receiver to offer a
subwoofer output coupled to an analog bass management circuit.
This means that the small speakers and subwoofer can be combined
to sound like a pair of much larger speakers.
The Outlaw Audio Model RR 2150 Retro Receiver is now available
for $649 (US Dollars) exclusively at www.outlawaudio.com.
Privately owned Outlaw Audio designs their own line of high-performance,
high-value consumer electronics products and markets them exclusively

ratings from major publications, Outlaw's products are widely
