    Interesting: http://www.technologytell.com/homete...-with-emotiva/

    Looks like Emo will be honoring the warranty.

    Dear friends and family,

    You told us. We listened.

    You asked, “Why can’t Emotiva do the same thing Sherbourn does?”


    When that article said this, I almost fell off the chair. Have any of you ever asked that ?

    We keep hearing about how great Emo is, then they buy Carver. Now this.

    "And you said, “Why don’t you take the best of Sherbourn and merge it with Emotiva?”"

    Shouldn't it be the other way around? Take the best from Emo and improve Sherbourn.

    Anyway, the end result should be better entry level gear, and possibly a step up.

    that would be hard to beat. 2000.00 for that amp and pre .... I have had the chance to listen to a Sherbourn amp it had a good sound i could live with.

    Emotiva bought Sherbourn over 3 years ago. Those Sherbourn amps are Emotiva designs, just look at the interior pictures.

    They discontinued several Emotiva amps a couple years ago (like the 7x150w), more than doubled the prices, and rebadged them as Sherbourn. No one fell for it.

    I don't see what the big deal is. Jade Design, more or less the parent company, already owns Emo and Sherbourn.

    Emotiva Audio Corporation

    Having heard products from both neither is going to improve the other, IMO.

    So, I'm reading a thread on another audio forum where the OP has built some speakers that are a bit rolled off at the top end and he's looking for a bright amp. Emo amps got recommended the most....go figure, LOL
