AV PREAMP PROCESSOR REVIEW

The Sherbourn PT-7030 does just about everything you need it to, and nothing you don't. It's a product that seems to have the guts and bells & whistles that matter—particularly to the custom installer. Take the six HDMI 1.4a inputs and two HDMI 1.4a outputs—that's going to get everything you need into the system and also allow you to connect any ARC-enabled device as well to one of the outputs. Twin Cirrus 32-bit dual-core DSP processors provide the expected 192 kHz audio performance, and video processing is aptly handled by the familiar and adept DCDi chipset.

Each channel has Individual DACs and volume control circuits and Sherbourn used a multi-stage linear power supply with a large toroidal transformer (remember, these are a preamplifier circuits, not full-gain amplifiers). For connectivity, a full set of 7.2 balanced outputs and as well as 7.1 unbalanced outputs are provided. I've always wondered about "high-end" products that don't provide balanced connectivity. Apparently Sherbourn did, too. Digital audio isn't neglected either, with four digital Toslink and three digital coax connections. And Sherbourn could probably have stopped there, but the addition of Bluetooth wireless audio was a nice touch, giving users with smart phones, iPods, and iPads the ability to stream directly into the PT-7030 wirelessly.

POWER AMP REVIEW

The Sherbourn name has been in the home theater game for a long time. With CES just around the corner, we're seeing lots of announcements of upcoming gear. Sherbourn did one better by not only announcing they have a new amp on the way, but by posting it on their website.

The Sherbourn PA 7-350 is truly a beast of an amp. It is the size of a receiver (17” wide by 18.5” deep by 9.625” tall) and tops 100 pounds. Yeah, that's one heavy box full of speaker-melting power. The PA 7-350 has a massive 3.3 kVA toroidal power supply pushing 350 watts into 8 ohms. It is a seven channel amplifier and is stable into 4 ohms. Sherbourn calls their use of a single massive power supply "Power Sharing." You may know it better as "headroom." For a while, manufacturers were moving to individual power supplies on each channel which was fine for modular designs (remember blade amps?) but limited the output on each channel. With one huge power supply, when your main speakers need a lot of power and your surrounds aren't doing much, you've got tons of reserve power. If you want to know more about how the Sherbourn PA 7-350 measures, they included a .PDF for you to look at. They use the same $40k Audio Precision APx585 8 Channel HDMI Audio Analyzer that we use for bench testing amplifiers.


Conclusion

The Sherbourn PA 7-350 is a beast of an amp - with a massive 3.3 kVA toroidal power supply pushing 350 watts into 8 ohms, 4 ohm stability, and seven channels of amplification, "a beast" may be putting it lightly. At over 100 pounds and with convection cooling and a high efficiency, “Soft Switch” class H design, this truly is an audiophile-grade amplifier. If you define "audiophile-grade" as "tons of power, every feature you'll need and none you don't." If you define it as "full of silver/platinum/chocolatey bits, marketing speak, and pseudo-science," well, you're looking at the wrong company. The only thing that is holding us back from our highest Preview Article rating of "Gotta have it!" is not knowing the price. Regardless, we think there are more than a few that have already looked into preordering this monster.
