Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

I am counting on that, Room EQ is the whole reason I undertook this experiment. High tech AVR vs. minimalist audiophile amp.

I will run Trinnov this Friday. Work drains me during the week, and I will have that day off paid. It will be fun.

I am curious, I browsed around the manual, but didn't find XO points for the mains and subs. Just running straight Stereo mode.

I really am looking forward to reading your insights. It truly is best to run Trinnov when you have the time to do it in the best possible way. I was honestly shocked just how much a difference using a Tripod was as opposed to using Pillows to approximate Ear Level.

I wonder if there is an adapter that would allow me to attach the probes to my mic boom stand? I understand that the probes need to point upward and the dot goes to the front.

It is essential for the Microphone to be orientated correctly. I simply used Velcro Tape to place the Microphone to the Tripod.

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

Well I just jumped in and purchased a R972, This will be replacing my old Onkyo 805 and I will be running it in 5.1 for now. I have been reading about Trinnov for years now and even though I was hoping to get it in a new preamp with XLR outputs I just had to jump on the amazing price A4L had it. I should have it in a few days and will report back once I get everything setup

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

Hello,
With a 3 Year Warranty and it now being $1250 off the MSRP (actually that is for the Open Box 972's/$1200 off MSRP otherwise), this is truly an absolute steal. I personally use my Onkyo Remote to control the 972 as the Remote is absolutely pathetic on the 972. That being said, the Onkyo RC from the 805 can easily learn all of the important functions of the 972.
Cheers,
JJ

I agree, I don't see how I could go wrong with with this for $600 (plus the bonus end plates) I use a Harmony 880 remote so I doubt I will even use the factory remote beyond doing the initial setup.

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

Does anyone know if the owners manual is available online? I would like to read through it before I get the receiver but it looks like Sherwood totally dropped support for this thing including the manual
Also are there any firmware updates available for this receiver?
