Setup my receiver. Everything sounds great except the bass seems a bit off. Trinnov shows my subs -6bd point at 19hz. Can I increase the gain on the sub amp without throwing off Trinnov EQ for the sub? Wondering where can I obtain those low frequency +3db/+6db files to boost the low end.
Yes, just increase the subs output level on the sub. I sent Sherwood an email so I will let you know what they say about the files once I receive a response.

Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp

Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 impressions

Thanks Tony. Audyssey allows you to increase sub trim in the setup menu after calibration but specifically warns against increasing sub gain on the sub amp in order to preserve EQ therefore I was not sure if increasing the sub gain at the sub amp will throw off Trinnov EQ for the sub. Looks like Trinnov preserves the sub equalization even if you play with gain on sub amp unlike Audyssey. Hopefully you get some response re the +3db/+6db files from Sherwood.

Ok, Serwood got back to me and sent me the two HEX files. I will install them this evening and let everyone know the difference it makes.

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 impressions

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 impressions

Maybe just have people ask you to send them in an email? I would be curious about them as well, but do not want you to feel uncomfortable putting them out there.

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 impressions

Its ok I can try and hopefully I dont cause trouble.

Please open the attached zip file and uncompress. Please copy all of the factory.hex files to USB drive root position. (ex. E:\factory.hex)
To update this firmware, turn ON the 972 and wait for relay click. Once you hear the relay click, change the input to USB. When NO DEVICE displayed, please insert the USB drive to the front USB slot.

Update will automatically start.

After finished, please reset the receiver by following the attached instruction.

To successfully reset, you need to start with the unit in the Standby Mode. To put
the unit in the standby mode simply press the standby button when the unit is On or unplug the
power cord from 120V AC and then plug it back in. Once in Standby Mode, press and hold
down the STANDBY & MEMO/ENTER buttons simultaneously for at least 3 seconds. This
will reset the unit and it will turn on automatically. If the reset was successful, you should notice
that the receiver powers up at 87.5 FM . If not, repeat the reset process

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

Hello,
A few things. I went ahead and changed the title from "First Impressions" to the Official Thread as this is really what this Thread is taking shape of being. Also, I too got the Hex Files and I do not think there is any issue to posting a link for them.
Cheers,
JJ

Thanks Jack

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

Jack et al,
How do you rate the Sherwood R972 vs. the Onkyo 3008. Mainly comparison of the amplifier section and EQ capabilities (Audyssey XT32 vs. Trinnov). Thanks.

I would have written less but I didn't have the time.
