Sherbourn (Emotiva) PA7350 (7 x 350w @ 8 ohms) for $999 - Page 4

post #91 of 233
A little part of me just dies every time I hear or read: "it is what it is". My god, what can you say that's more hopelessly pointless and redundant? I've yet to encounter a more cringe-worthy utterance. Rant over.

Anyway, I hope everyone enjoys their amps...even if they only use the max output 1 out of every 10,000 uses.

I had a Sherbourn 7-2100 and it was great.

I just want to make sure I get mine!
The only email I received from them was the confirmation of my credit card go through, until I call them, they said it will ship on 30th.
But the sales did mention they have stock the time I place the order, and also they said it will ship out the next day.
Hope that they will have the coming shipment to us.

The only way you will know about when your amp will ship is if you call them and they will look at your order and confirm a date. I never got an email saying it was back ordered or anything like that. I was told that my amp would be part of the August 30 shipment, but then out of nowhere I got a Fedex shipping notification. So my order got bumped forward somehow. When in doubt just give them a call. They are very friendly.

Mine showed up yesterday, order # 1403 (for reference against your place in line), i ordered it within 30 minutes of getting the email notification from them of the sale on 8/7.

Now if they would only drop the price on the PT-7030 (was $1799 with a free 7-150) now $999...so i'm not seeing the screaming value that sold out all of their amps in a matter of days...

@ $699 it's a no brainer smile.gif

Since I would have to run wire and install a new breaker, It makes more sense to do a 240v 30a. Looking at the specs it says 115 @60hz and 230v @50hz. Can this amp run on North American 220-240v 60hz systems or is the 230v designed for 50hz Europe only?


Edit
Never mind, looks like it works on both. Geez.. that means I can't run my AC, Dryer, Oven, Air compressor and PA 7-350 at the same time or I might trip the main breaker.rolleyes.gif

Power requirements:
115 VAC or 230 VAC +/- 10% @ 50 / 60 Hz (selectable by rear-panel switch)
Power consumption: up to 4000 watts under maximum load
Note: We STRONGLY recommend that the PA 7-350 be attached to a dedicated power
circuit. Under real-world conditions, with typical loads, playing music, the
PA 7-350 will deliver full dynamic power when attached to a single dedicated
115 VAC 20 A circuit! If the PA 7-350 is to be used for demanding commercial
applications or under laboratory conditions, a dedicated 230 VAC 30 A circuit
is REQUIRED. Please contact Sherbourn Technical Support if you require more
information.

Good catch verifying that. Could have been a disaster if it wasn't ready for 60hz. Mine was only supplied with the cord for 120v, I may just change the end as the other cords I see available seem like very light gauge. I did a bit of 2 channel listening on some Studio Monitor 450s and was impressed with the detail and control in my limited listening session, albeit on 120v with the supplied power cord and using a laptop as the source. rolleyes.gif
Looks like the weekend will consist of doing some wiring and cable management. I'll report back once I really open it up.
Do you guys think that there will be a difference in sound after a "break in " period?

I just received a email 3 days ago mention that the amp have to test before ship out, they said they expect ship out in the middle of next week.
Please update when you guys received the shippment.

Mine is due to arrive Tuesday. It shipped on the 29th.

How do you like your 350? Mine arrives today from FedEx. I am already going into stalk mode. (Watching for FedEx man). My electrician is installing the dedicated 20 amp circuit today too. I am curious to know what you think of the amp.

I just plan to use a 20a to 15a adaptor.

I called Emotiva during their 10for10 sale and decided to inquire about open box or refurbished PA7-350's before making a purchase. I was shocked to find out that they had a few new ones come in that day. Needless to say I ecstatically picked one up...ships out today. I got it for the sale price if $999.

For those that have received their units already are you hooking it up to a 20 amp or 30 amp breaker. If 30 amp breaker do you have to change the PA7-350's power cord?
post #104 of 233
I just got mine today and for giggles I just bought a 20a receptacle for $2 at home depot and swapped out my old 15a one. It hasn't tripped a breaker yet and I have been at reference levels. I am also only using 5 channels of it. BTW it sounds phenomenal!

My Sherbourn PA 7-350 arrived yesterday. It's a monster. Had a dedicated 20 amp circuit installed as it was arriving. The lights in the house blink when turned it on. I am not having any stray sounds like hums, buzzes, spikes or thumps. Good. Played a blu ray of famous jazz musicians and was surprised by the power from my speakers. At no time did the sound become confused or incoherent. Upgraded from a Sherbourn PA 7-150 amp bought about two months ago. Am running the PT 7030 Pre amp, Maggie 1.6's up front. Problem with this amp is I want to upgrade my subs and surrounds to be on the same level of the 350. Will be excited to rediscover certain movie soundtracks. Not excited to see next month electricity bill. Wonder if it will be impacted. Need subwoofer recommendations. Looking for something that will produce sound at 15 hz. Also need someone to tell me how to equalize my speakers with flat freq response.

Have you notice any different between your PA-150 and the PA-350?
post #107 of 233
I received my PA7-350 few days back. My basement is still getting finished (with a 20A circuit of course). But I could not wait to test this out - so got a Dynex travel power adapter from BestBuy (<$10). I connected my android phone (stereo split using Y cable) to the amp directly. Used my 13 year old Infinity Reference 2000.6 speakers. WOW. My wife heard it and asked why are we getting new speakers (SEAS-Pendragons ordered)?

I never heard my speakers sound so good. I had a Nakamichi AV-500 (integreated) and a Denon-989 before this. I am still planning to use my Denon's pre-outs. I will do more tests in the next few days. It will take me about 2 more months to finish the basement project and have the complete theater set up. Will update again in about 2 months.

i'll post some photos when i remember to take some but the 7-350 and PT-7030 are in and i'm in audio heaven:D in stereo listening i was clipping so i bi-amped the fronts Polk LSiM707's (very power hungry speakers) and now have whole house sound out of two speakers. after watching a few movies on the OPPo 103 the one thing i'm having trouble getting used to is the massive sound field especially with any orchestral sound tracks.

This is a few steps past any audio i've had at home and i'm blown away, Roy Orbeson's Black and White concert (especially the finally), and Talking Heads Stop Making Sense (stereo track) are hard to believe at times.

BTW the Blue Jeans 10 gauge cables and locking banana plugs really make for a good cable at a price that is hard to believe.cool.gif
post #109 of 233

Well what are your amplifier needs? What's your setup? 8 ohm 4ohm? How many speakers? How loud do you listen?

Crack that bad boy open. You won't be disappointed. If I had to describe the sound in one word it would be "effortless"

Effortless huh, very nice! It is going to pair very nice with JTR 212 Noesis which among many things have been described as effortless. I consider the opportunity to get this amp at this price like winning the lottery. If any doesn't want to keep theirs then pm me. I know some who will!
post #115 of 233
Onkyo 818, Paradigm monitor 9v6, cc-290, & adp 190. Only have 5.2 right now, the amp was a purchase to future proof amp needs. Price was too good to pass up. Will I have any problem with pre-out voltage from the onkyo to the 350? Thanks for the replies fellas

Yea I couldn't pass it up either. I can't tell about pre out voltage, hopefully someone who can say definitively will chime in. But I have a Denon 3313 which has all the pre outs to connect to amplification just like your Onkyo. Just connect a short RCA cable from your Onkyo to the Sherbourn, one per each channel of course. Your Onkyo should simply transmit the signal of each respected channel to the Sherbourn amp in which it takes over from there. One thing is certain. You now have more power per channel by a very high quality piece of gear. I plan on running very high sensitive 4ohm speakers in which I will get 550 watts a channel. Hope this helps!
post #117 of 233
Onkyo is known to have one of the highest preout voltages of commercial avrs. (At least for subwoofer outs and I'd assume it would apply to all pre-outs) You are good to go.

A higher voltage preoout let's you better utilize an amps full power.
post #118 of 233
Oh, thanks Archaea. What about Denon? I'm rolling with a 3313...Should be good to roll with my new Sherbourn eh, right?
post #119 of 233
Yes denon has strong preouts to!
post #120 of 233
Thanks for your responses guys(jpowell, arch, boss). Gonna crack it open & let it eat.
