Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

Installed the unit today. Neither remote worked at first, but now the little IR one turns the unit on, although it turns itself back off seconds later. It comes on as ROOM2 SET >Room2 = OFF, then goes back into standby.

Hooked my universal player up, played some 2 channel. Some info was missing like the AVR was in multi channel mode. I had to use the front panel controls to get anything done.

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

I believe the little remote is only used for "Room 2". It does not seem to do anything for the main listening area (as far as I can tell).

In order to get the big remote to control the unit, make sure to press the "AUD" button on top so it says "Audio" in the display. Really, the remotes are the biggest downside to this unit - they are really, really poor IMO.

Remote is working, thanks! Set the CD to multi channel, it seems to be playing proper 2 channel now.

Doesn't want to switch inputs, but I'll figure that out tomorrow. I have a lot to learn. I know... read the instructions.

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

its a little quirky as far as the front panel input is concerned. Im starting t understand how it works but still a bit of a learning curve to it. In the video input settings there are alot of options as to what it defaults to.

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

Hello,
The Remote Control was the main issue with this AVR and I pointed this out on the "I Got a New Toy's" first Post. I have been remiss that I have not mentioned this more, but the value is so good and Trinnov so exceptional that I have lost sight of this issue.

No worries here JJ - when the worst thing you can say about a unit is that the remote is lacking, that is a good thing!

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

CD in Stereo mode, my mains do not sound as good as before. While the Newcastle does sound pretty good, I am missing the clarity of the Exposure integrated, the highs are subdued and the image isn't as specific, less air around the performers. I feel the sound does improve after 10-15 minutes of play (warmup).

My subs do sound better, the Dayton SA1000 is liking the LFE feed. Haven't played with the settings, levels or XO FR. I am tired and just want to listen to music. Looking forward to tweaking settings and running Trinnov.
