This amplifier arrived brand new on Friday, 2/3/2012. I tested it and took pictures and put it back in the box. Works perfectly. No hum. No hum in speakers I can hear. Clean sound. Very cool, no heat!. I could really list it as a 10/10.
Sherbourn is the sister company to Emotiva. Both are owned by Jade Designs. This amp looks to be the same internal design and components as the Emotiva XPA-5 but in a 7 channel format with slightly less wattage per channel. However, the audible diference between 150 watts and 200 watts about 1 db...extremely minimal.
A 7 channel system through EMO would require space for 2 boxes and two outlets. Sherbourn offers a 1 box solution which I have on sale here.
Everything that came with it is inlcuded. Power cord, trigger wire, owners manual, transferable 5 year warranty, original packing.
With its efficient Class A/B design, the PA 7-150 runs very cool, and so is ideal for situations where excess heat production is a problem. The elegant 17 inch wide sculptured front panel houses a master power switch and seven blue LEDs;audiophile-grade input and output connectors on the rear panel complete the picture.

I can provide proof of purchase, if needed, so that you will have no problems with the warranty.

This represents a huge savings on an amplifier that is less than 30 days old so buyer pays shipping and PayPal. I'll pay Audiogon.
