I just purhcased a 1500A Sherbourn amp rated at 5x200w. My previous system was running an Odyssey Stratos for the fronts and a Parasound 855a for the rears. I have the Sherbourn hooked up to my Outlaw 950 now, but in order to reach the same db level as my previous setup with the Odyssey/Parasound combo, I have to jump the volume level up to around say 0db compared to -10db with the Odyssey/Parasound setup. Also, I don't have any trouble maxing out the volume control on the 950 with the Sherbourn hooked up whereas on the Odyssey/Parasound setup I couldn't even get close to that level without compromising my hearing. This is troublesome in that the Sherbourn is supposedly rated at 5 x 200w which should give me the ability to play louder, which it isn't. Any help or comments would be more than greatly appreciated.
