The specs I have seen on the Boston Acoustics AVP-7 make it comparable to the Outlaw 990 (no HDMI mentioned) and I saw one in Audiogon.com for $649. To be honest, it looks suspiciously similar to the 990, hmmm.....[/quote]
I have the Boston AVR-7120, same as the AVP-7 but with amps. It is the same as the sherwood newcastle P-965.
I would go more for the P-965 because of the updates that were made to the unit. Boston does not support these units anymore. Check AVS forum, there is alot of info there for the Boston recievers.
