    Sherwood AM 9080 amp, on sale now!!
    The AM-9080 is a 5-channel, 70-pound, independent main amp that contains three power transformers and the capability to unleash a kilowatt of output power, enough to push the sound envelope on any system's performance level. Each channel, from gold-plated input to heavy duty output, is built on a separate circuit-board as an independent mono block, a design which minimizes cross-talk (and facilitates repair in the unlikely event that should become necessary). The discrete circuitry utilizes PNP differential input, Darlington current driver and parallel, pure-complementary, push-pull output.
    According to Laurence Ullman writing for www.etown.com, the Sherwood Newcastle AM-9080 "is a stone cold bargain."
    Stereophile Guide to Home Theater states "its an extremely well-built, high-powered, bargain-price unit" with a "rich, luxurious, ultrasmooth feel."
    · Designed for Low Impedance Loads
    · 120 Watts per channel (x 5) into 8 ohms
    · 170 Watts per channel (x 5) into 4 ohms
    · THD

    Anyone know how much an amp such as this would improve the sound coming out of my Harman Kardon AVR-310 receiver??
