Just picked one of these up off of Ebay for a smoking deal last week. A dealer was selling them on behalf of Sherwood. Factory refurb model with a 90 day warranty. Drove up to the Sherwood office in Buena Park and picked it up from them. I was upgrading from an NAD T762 (non-HDMI, no room correction). I have it paired with a NAD M-25. Running a 5.1 setup with B&W speakers (FPM6s, LCR 6, and DM 604s).
I found the setup to be relatively easy. I'm not as super sophisticated as a lot of the fans here so I got the Trinnov setup and it seems to work well. Not sure if it sounds "perfect" but it sounds WAY better than my previous setup.
One thing I did notice is that watching TV (ATT Uverse) was brutal when I ran HDMI through the receiver into the TV. The sound and video were both Very choppy even with the receiver in "Bypass" mode. I ended up routing the video directly into the TV and the audio into the receiver via optical and it was MUCH better.
Anyone have any similar problems? Could this be a HDMI cable quality issue?
Thanks for any thoughts!
