I got a FEDX tracking number, mine should be here today! And yes, when these are gone, these are gone forever. I guess someone could wait for a used one, but then there would be no 3 year warranty.
I have had the Audyssey system in an Onkyo, and a Pioneer Elite with the Pioneer MACC System. I have to say I prefer the Pioneer Elite's system.
I am hoping the Trinnov in the Sherwood will be the best of all.
I also had a Yamaha RX V1 I kind of wish I had never sold!
That was an awesome sounding receiver, on my old B&W 801's
It was absolutely HUGE in size, and got several "OMFG" types of comments from jealous friends.
I spoke with Curt Hoyt of Trinnov out in California, before I pulled the trigger on the Sherwood Newcastle 972. He did say the Sherwood 972 itself was "tweaky", but every single balls to the walls receiver I have ever owned was "tweaky", in one way or another.
Curt did say the Trinnov processor in the 972 worked very well, if set up correctly, and sent me a PDF file of tips and tricks, to help with the Trinnov!
These monster receivers all have their own personality.
Basically, I wanted to play with the Trinnov System, and I do not have 18,000 for a stand alone Trinnov.
