Sherbourn - 5 mono blocks and 5 toroidal transformers with each mono block outputting 200/300 watts into 8/4-ohms
The 7-channel is build like a rock.

Outlaw,

What is your price range?

I want to keep it around $1000 U.S. however I know some companys you can get for CHEAP online, but most dont come with warrenty, I will consider something like this if it is in my desired price range but retails for allot more and is of high quality! Thanks!

Would you consider buying used? You will have more choices if you consider buying used. Some companies will transfer warranties.

Outlaw www.outlawaudio.com . I've read good things about their amps.

I have a Sherwood Newcastle AM-9080 that I like a lot, it's a 5 channel amp with lots of grunt. You'd have to get one used though.

I hear you get alot for your money with Outlaw's amps. They have a 7-Channel for only $899.

Adcom. I have 4 of their GFA-535 2-channel amps. I bought them used off ebay. Are you dead set on a 5 channel? You might get more for less by going with less channels per amp.
