Experience the Receiver Experts Deem a "Music Listener's Best Friend": 110Wpc Outlaw Audio RR2160 Comes Loaded with Features and Plays with Hi-Fi Sound, Includes Phono Preamp
Let's put Outlaw Audio's newest receiver, RR2160, in proper perspective. CNET's Steve Guttenberg states the RR 2160 "flat-out sounds better than any receiver or amplifier I've heard for its $799 asking price." Indeed, when you get 110Wpc continuous power, 24-bit/192kHz Burr-Brown PCM DACs, an HD Radio tuner, multiple inputs, high-resolution USB input, MM/MC phono preamplifier, subwoofer output, front-panel speaker-equalization selector, headphone amplifier, precision volume control, configurable bass management, remote, and more, it's basically impossible to do better for the money. 100% Music Direct Guaranteed.
Bolstered by a large toroidal transformer and heat sinks, RR2160's amplifier section is conservatively rated at 110wpc at eight ohms or 165wpc at four ohms, both channels driven, 20Hz-20kHz, <0.05% THD. It's more than prepared to drive full-range loudspeakers. And unlike many competing designs, RR2160 retains a classic, noise-free analog supply. RR2160 also comes ready for servers and sound cards via a pair of both optical and coaxial inputs along with front and rear-panel USB inputs. In the analog realm, six RCA inputs, a 3.5mm front panel jack, and an external processor loop that can be used as an additional input are at your service. The build quality extends to the outside, with a thick, multi-layered, aluminum front panel. As we said, you cannot do better for under $800. (Please note: Due to manufacturer restrictions, the price of this product includes a $30 Shipping and Handling charge.)
"The Outlaw Audio RR 2160 stereo receiver flat out sounds better than any receiver or amplifier I've heard for its $799 asking price."
– Steve Guttenberg, CNET
“The Outlaw RR2160 was a joy to use. [It] is a conspicuously good-sounding audiophile product at a ridiculously low price. Highly recommended!”
—Herb Reichert, Stereophile, December 2017
“The RR2160 is a stupendously great sounding stereo receiver. This a music listener’s best friend!”
—Mark Fleischmann, Sound & Vision, Top Pick
RR2160 has everything you need to custom-tailor its sound to your listening environment. For starters, a precision volume control and tone controls with a front panel defeat switch. For added low-end optimization, RR 2160 remains as the only stereo receiver with adjustable equalization. The option to add a half-octave of bass boost at select frequencies can greatly improve bass response, particularly with compact bookshelf speakers. Are you a headphone listener? The headphone output operates via a negative feedback loop and can be adjusted with the master volume, as well as its own level control.
Details Make the Difference
RR2160 comes with a unique package of additional features not found in other two-channel receivers. For example, there are two remote triggers for those who wish to control optional, external amplifiers connected to the Pre-Out/Main-In jacks. Two USB ports deliver five volts to power accessories such as streaming adaptors. Attention to detail even extends to upgraded speaker terminals, IR In/Out jacks, separate listening paths for the main and record outputs, dual subwoofer pre-outputs, a dimmable two-line display, and a heavy-gauge, removable power cord. The remote even features an all-aluminum build.
