It seems to be that most people here feel the Parasound is a great match with the Studio 100's. I just recently became interested in the Sherbourn 5/1500a and now can't decide whether to purchase this amp, or the 2205a from Parasound. My dealer spent a long time with me explaining why he feels the Sherbourn is a better mate (and I trust his opinion seeing as how the Parasound is a few hundred more). He said that he feels the Studio's are revealing speakers and that the Parasound can also be revealing. He said that the Sherbourn is a bit "warmer". Both are fantastic amps and I can't go wrong either way. It's been burned into my mind so many times about how great the Parasounds are mated with Paradigms that I can't shake it! help!!!!!!!
