Outlaw Audio, a home theater manufacturer who only sells their home audio components and accessories through their company?s website, has introduced what they call a ?worthy successor? to their extremely popular and well rated Model 1050 A/V receiver.

Enter the Model 1070.

The Model 1070 is a full featured, 7.1 channel A/V receiver which delivers an impressive 65 watts per channel into its seven channels at 8 ohms with all channels driven from 20 to 20,000 Hz. Its DSP engine is based around the Cirrus Logic CS 49400 processor, which has its 192 kHz/24-bit DACs performing digital to analog conversions for all channels.

All current digital audio formats are supported by the Model 1070, including Dolby Digital EX, DTS, DTS-ES and DTS-96/24. Matrix processing options include Dolby ProLogic IIx, DTS Neo:6, Dolby Virtual Speaker, Dolby Headphone and selectable 5, 6 and 7 channel stereo modes. It also includes an analog bypass mode to cut out unnecessary digital to analog conversions.

A variety of inputs exist for video and audio connections. On the video side, two DVI inputs (compatible with HDMI signals), four composite or S-Video inputs and three component inputs provide a wide array of options for video playback devices. Cross conversion in the Model 1070 allows composite and S-Video sources to be viewed as component video.
