Hello, I just purchased this amp without auditioning it. It fit into my budget/power needs well. This is my first step into separates and I hope I made a good decision. I'd love to hear from users (or former users) of this amp. What can I expect? My current system is centered by a harmon/kardon AVR-7000 receiver. The 7000 will serve preamp duties for several months as I decide what to do on the pre/pro front. I have all Definitive speakers (BP2000 mains and BP30 rears). Sherwood has the stigma of "crappy" to me so I was a bit hesitant. I realize the AM-9080 isn't the same as the components you find at Wal-Mart but that did bother me a bit at first. Anyway, I'd love to hear comments on this amp. Boost my ego please!
