    I'm curious to see if anyone has actually done this and what they think of it. I tried searching but only came up with suggestions and not someone who has done it. If you have tried or done it which method did you use?

    Just purchased my 2nd Sherwood Newcastle R-972 for my 2nd room, have the 1st about 1 1/2 years. With the new one playing a blu-ray only plays stereo not surround using hdmi. Same brand player, so I took the player and hdmifrom the first and connected it to the 2nd still only stereo while it...

     Have the Sherwood R-972 using Dish Network, the HDMI keeps cutting out picture and audio. My software is the one it came with 1.4.

    Okay, I am putting together a new HT system for move into new custom home. Budget is 600, would even prefer to stay at $500 but can stretch to 600 System speakers are Klipsch WF34 Klipsch WC24 Klipsch WS24 HSU VTF-2 MK4 or Rhythmik LV12R (debating which) I am looking at a new receiver...

    Hello. I recently purchased one to replace a Marantz receiver in a an audio/theater setup (projection plus Celestion 4ohm A series speakers). Trinnov is great and has been discussed enough, so I am not looking to address that here. I would like to get impressions from others who have or have...

    Or at least anything in the affordable range. I'm still using a Sherwood R-972, but would prefer something more up to date and with fewer glitches. For the life of me I cannot figure why some participant in the highly competitive AVR market would not adopt what many think is the best speaker...

    Between these two receivers which would be a better choice for home theater use in a 7.1 setup? I've heard good things about the Trinnov processing but also a lot of quirks with the 972.

    So here is the set up: I've been going through all my old video game systems and getting the best cables for top quality video output. Most of them are best with an s-video and my Dreamcast has a vga cable. I've been running them through an Onkyo TX-SR605 (except the dreamcast), but I have...

    I'm offering my Sherwood Newcastle R-972 A/V receiver for sale. This is the one to get if you want Trinnov EQ and 3-D speaker remapping. It's in great shape and was used lightly for perhaps 6 months in my 2nd system. I have the original box and packaging materials, manual, remote control, and...

    I have been away from this forum for quite a while. I was a very active poster for about 5 years but then I had kids and I finally got to the point where I just enjoyed my system instead of always tweaking it. I bought a Yamaha VX-663 when they first came out and I am still using it with a...

    I currently have an Onkyo PRSC-5508 pre/pro. I auditioned the Sherwood and was really captivated by the enveloping sound. I want the sound I heard out of the Sherwood with the feature set of the Onkyo. Are there any options without going ridiculously expensive? I don't use any of the video...

    This receiver was used for a few hours (Trinnov mic never even taken out of the box). It is absolutely immaculate and has the updated firmware and 1.4 HDMI (3D compatible). Buyer to pay actual shipping cost (probably around $30). Brand new Piano Black end caps also available for $59...

    I am finally going to be updating my processor from a B&K 307 receiver to one of these choices. I would appreciate input from any one who has compared 2 of these units head to head. I will be using separate power amps.

    Has anyone compared the two auto speaker calibration setups? I've heard the XT32 is pretty good.
  15. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    As the title says, I'm attempting to find my best quality option, and value for a new preamp processor, even if that might be a receiver. This will be replacing an Onkyo Pro SC-886. Due to cutbacks, I'm being forced into a somewhat early retirement situation and am trying to identify the best...

    Currently have the Denon 4311 and have enjoyed it immensely. But the Trinnov room correction coupled with the low closeout price of the Sherwood R-972 has me intrigued. Has anybody had experience with both? How does the Trinnov compare with the Audessey Multi XT32? Also interested in 2 channel...

    For anyone who has experienced Trinnov, we are learning a new way of experiencing sound, and with that comes new ways of setting up our listening environment and system for maximum enjoyment. The old rules for ideal sound no longer apply. Where we once would have been making grave compromises...
