D'ont know that much about HT but I do own a pair of MC-1's. I had a special application where I needed to go with 2-channel wall mounts. I highly recommend them and am very happy with the open, airy Magnepan sound, even these modest ones and, even mounted on the wall. In fact, they seem to need the wall coupling. They also need a subwoofer, since they have limited low frequency extension, and like all Magnepans, seem to like higher powered amps. I'm using an Audio Research 100.2 amp and a Vandersteen sub woofer. Everyone that's been over and seen them are struck by the sound and the thin 'architectural' wall mount look. Listen to a pair at a dealer if possible, they are surprisingly good for $750/pair. Don't know about Outlaw, but I did hear a pair of MC-1's with an Arcam HT receiver and it sounded like a good match.
