Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

Trinnov on Subs:

I have an opportunity, with a very small window of time, to buy a 9 month old Dspeaker Dual Core for 750.00. I just got in a Sherwood R-972 with Trinnov. I have not had time yet to run Trinnov's Room Correction software, but I read Trinnov is very good on dual subs which applies to me. Some seem to like it as well, or almost as well, as Audyssey XT32/Sub HT. However, I've got 48hrs to make a decision. Anyone here happen to have heard the Trinnov on subs? I don't know if I will have the time to set up Trinnov before this guy sells the Dual Core. I don't want to spend the money if I don't have to, but I don't want to miss this deal either!

Any feedback will be much appreciated!

Trinnov in the 972 does only one sub channel; it will treat multiple subs as one.

I have two subs pre-EQ'd to match each other with a MiniDSP, then let Trinnov work with that; works fine

The Dspeaker Dual Core looks pretty slick but the price is too high IMO. Trinnov does a good job on subs, not as good as XT32 IME but not too far off either. I would say do a MiniDSP like Noah mentioned, a DCX2496 or even a SMS-1 if you feel you need a little more EQ in the sub channel, all 3 can be bought for a lot less than used Dual Core price.

Ok, the saga continues...

Spent a couple of hours fabricating some dual ball socket wall mounts for each of the 225 radius surrounds, re-ran trinnov and there was a definite improvement on the side channels, however......

There is a persistent distortion on each of the channels whenever sound is passed, like a slight hiss but only in conjuction with speaker activity, ie - inaudible in quiet scenes but arrives whenever a speaker has to do something.

1saleaday responded that I should ship ( at my own cost) the unit back to them, I will never , ever do business with them again ever if they are selling Sr7005's for 100 bucks.

Think its screwdriver time

Two totally different ways of approach. Trinnov reads the room in 3 dimensions using a 5 capsule microphone unit so it (if done correctly) will actually make your speakers disappear into the room. Meaning that you should not be able to locate where the sound is coming from. Its really quite amazing.

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20
Panasonic TC-P50ST60, HD-PVR & WDTV Live, Harmony 900

I gotta say I am pretty excited to try this thing out as my isuperslowsaleaday receiver finally showed up. You know that shipping is real slow when you get the credit card bill, AND have to psy it before you get the receiver. I am coming off of a Denon AVR-A100 and don't know what to expect.

I sold my Denon 4311 and kept the Sherwood. That's what you should expect.

yeah, your posts are what are keeping my hopes up. I really like xt32 with my dual subs though. We shall see. Just getting ready to lug that box down to the theater room..
Boy, will I come out ahead if I end up liking my $300 receiver versus my avr-a100!
