Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

Thank you for the welcome, we are almost neighbors. On ac4l website on the reviews one stated plastic on left side is to help with heat dissipation, me I cannot figure how. Yes got a fantastic deal, they mentioned when I ordered by phone if I needed end caps if not could save $70, with the shipping and about $5 less in taxes saved $60. Few years ago bought the Onkyo SC885 for my other setup from them, good people.

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

I have the End Caps and I am not using them. They are still in the wrapping. If I can find where I put them, I will shoot you a PM. And Owner Mark, Larry, and Mary at AC4L are really nice folks who I have done business with for years. We Floridians do get the short end of the stick in terms of having to pay Sales Tax as they are in Orlando.

Have a 972 but would like the latest firm ware.
This one is coming out of a box & into service after 2 years +.

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

It was the "older model" statement that made me think it might have been a different AVR. Indeed, as Tony said.

Yes they are really nice and totally honest to deal with. Have bought from them before.

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

If anyone is interested,I'm selling my Sherwood R-972 in the classifieds(to late to return it)it's only 2 months old and the batteries for the remote haven't even been cracked open and the remote hasnít even been used.It just lacks some of the sonic qualities that I like from my previous set-up. Everything on the unit seems to work properly (minus the the normal operational quirks) from what I've been able to tell from other users' experiences.PM me if interested.

Is anybody controlling their 972 with an IPad?
Pardon me if I have missed this in prior post.

$525 seems pretty reasonable but Im curious, what was the processor in your "previous set-up?"

Hi,

My current set-up includes a Lexicon MC-12(non HD) combined with both Audyssey standalone EQ boxes.I just get better clarity,dynamics and bass weight with this set-up than I do with the R-972.I was just really interested in try out Trinnov and this is the only obtainable version of it that I can afford.I guess it wasn't really a fair comparison,but I was hoping the R-972 would be pretty close in sound quality to what I already have with the Lex/Audyssey,but it lacks the sonic attributes that I've come to really like with those units.The Trinnov remapping though,is where the Lex/Audyssey can't compete and that's where I lose a little,but it's not enough for me to keep the R-972.
