Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

Just a quick update, I hooked up some cheep surround speakers today in preparation for my SVS SBS-02s that will arrive later this coming week and re ran Trinnov.
All I can say is WOW I turned on 3D remap and was blown away in how it sounds with music! I can literally close my eyes and the sound is all around me with not one direct direction that the sound is coming from. Even with these cheep speakers as the surrounds its just 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

When Trinnov does it's thing that is my same exact reaction and why I am hooked. It is great to just be surrounded by sound so enveloping, you almost have to get use to it. Just the other day my girl commented that a surround effect she would swear was coming from someplace in the house. She said wow, the effect was so convincing.

You know what even more interesting? I was in my kitchen and the sound was still coming from the room as if I had speakers in my Kitchen. Its hard to explain if your not there to hear for yourself.

My family room is open to the kitchen but if someone is example in a different room is it audible there?

My living room system is opened to the kitchen and when I tested out the 972 there I actually paused and replayed a scene from a TV show 4 times. It just did not compute in my head how the sound could appear to be coming from there, it was so clear it sounded like a monopole speaker firing right at you but there were no speakers even close. I honestly thought it had to be a cabinet or something inside the cabinets that was resonating or my neighbor doing something but on the 4th playback we realized it was just from the TV show were a noise was placed in the back of the room. The most realistic placement of a sound that I have ever experienced.

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

I did have an odd occurrence last night as i was playing with the settings. The picture went green like the red had quit. I had to finally go into the video settings and bypass the video scaling to get it to return to normal even though it was a 1080p signal from bluray so there should not have been any scaling being done.

Agree 100%, the sound stage on this puppy is amazing.

I've had these types of things happen to every AVR I've had, Sony, Denon, Onkyo, since the advent of the dreaded HDMI connection. Sometimes with all the technology crammed into these AVRs you just have to toggle so that it can try again.

yep, had that once as well, kinda like a "solarized" effect when it was mostly green and you could still kind of see what was going on. toggling inputs cured it for me. I do NOT use the scaling in the 972...
