|Description:||I have had the sherwood 8090 for about 3 months and it sound very good. but what annoys me is the fact that it does not sound like a 100 watts, and the sub woofer does not work properley. I must admit, it doesn't suffer from this background noise, or the volume problem that was mentioned in a review of the 9080. Also the fact that i picked it up for 225 pounds, makes it a far better choice. It has dolby pro logic, dolby digital,dts and a few dsp modes. These are theatre, hall1 and hall2.|
Theatre mode is for sterio films that are not prologic. It is a bit tinny, but does make a big difference to the sound.
The hall 1 mode is good for classical music. I have not as of yet used it.
The hall mode 2 is for rock music.
When you use the 6 channel direct inputs, you can use these modes over the the dolby digtal and dts sounds.
I like the fact the each sound channel can be change independently from each other. so the front left can be different to the front right, etc, etc.
It also has a mode for the tunner that displays the radio channel, what it is playing and allows you to search for a radio station that plays any specfic types of programs. Un fortunatley this feature is not available in the united states, sorry.
i would give the amp 8.00 out of ten
