Hi Jim, The 972 will easily blow the doors off the Marantz 7005 so you made a very good choice. I dont have a HDMI capable display hooked up to my 972 so I can not confirm if it will pass HDMI video when off however I will see if it passes Component (when I get home tonight) as thats what I use, chances is if it does it will also pass HDMI
Thanks for the reply. It would be nice if you would check this out for me. It wouldn't be a disaster if it didn't pass the HDMI through, it's just that sometimes I don't listen to the TV with the system on. My other concern is about how deep the chassis is: some 19"+. If so, I'm gonna have to figure out how my equipment stand is gonna work.

Yes, its a very deep and tall unit. Its even deeper than my Onkyo 805 and that is a very large receiver.

I'm OK, height-wise, but depth...my system stand may need some reinforcement:



The reassuring thing is the in the last review in the first post, he's using the 972 with Def Tech BP 3000s mains, with the DT 2002 C/L/R. I have DT 2002s with the same center so it should know what to do with the built-in subwoofers.

After seeing the calbration mic, I know now what the device was that Klaatu tried to give us Earthlings before they shot him.

Well, I ordered this thing yesterday afternoon. I've been lusting after the Marantz SR7005, but I know that at $1300, I would never really be able to afford one. I really can't afford the 972 either, but simply could not resist the opportunity. I already own a couple other Sherwood Newcastle receivers (771 & 772) for bedroom and wifey's living room system; I find them to be a bit odd, but they work). I'm buying the R972 to replace my Marantz SR7300 in the main veiwing room. Does anyone know if the 972 will passthru an HDMI signal to my TV when power is off?

Jim
Jim,
The 972 does not offer HDMI CEC Control so it does not offer Passthrough when the AVR is turned off. You could always run Components to the TV and HDMI to the AVR and just switch TV Inputs when/if you want to watch TV with your HT off.
Cheers,
JJ

Indeed. The Microphone is the most impressive I have ever seen bundled with an AVR. I cannot get over just how powerful Trinnov truly is.

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 impressions

Regarding the dimensions, the Sherwood web site lists the depth as 17-7/8", so I'm thinking the 19.875" depth must be inclusive of not only the chassis, but also includes the speaker posts in back and the front knobs. If that is the case (can one of you owners verify this theory), then I'm OK and the shelf I want to use.

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 impressions

I just measured mine and its 20" if you include the power cord as its very ridged and sticks out at least that much before I would even dare to try to bend it. The volume and selector knob stick out of the front another 3/4 of an inch on the front.

Any more impressions for us awaiting our deliveries Tony?
