When I think of Sharewood I think of a receiver for stores and all.
About the HTiB don't they still get a bad press? My speakers will most likely be wall mounted.
The Sherwood 904 specifically has gotten some bad reviews, mostly related to the video processing section as far as I'm aware, but in general their products are as fine as anyone else. Yes, it is true that HTIBs are not popular among the "elite" but if they're suitable for your space, that's what matters.
Just some options to consider if a conventional receiver isn't feasible due to size (and they're all going to be more or less similar in size, the more robust ones just get deeper, taller, and heavier).
