Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

The pink screen happens at least once a week to me. Toggling inputs fixes it. Quirk #74. We should make a list.

Trinnov is still amazing and most people don't know what they're missing. Just watched Django unchained, and the bullets and wood shards flying everywhere is just awesome. It really shines in action movies.

I beg of Curt and the rest of the Trinnov team to license some sort of their EQ/3D Remapping to one of the big names in receivers. That, or have an affordable standalone unit under $2,000 for us that are hooked and on a budget. I cannot have a pre-pro or receiver without it now.

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...
Im surprised that Sherwood did not do better testing before rolling it out (seems so common for companies like this). It has so many little issues that make for one mess at times however the sound quality is its saving grace.

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

It really is a shame that of all the companies that make great audio equipment, Sherwood was the one to get Trinnov. I anxiously waited for years for Outlaw Audio to make their version based on the Sherwood but it just never happened.

I had never heard of Sherwood until I found out what Trinnov was. It seems like the Newcastle is their only avr line. I hear Sherwood has horrible customer service.How reputable is Sherwood and are they good quality receivers?

Sherwood makes receivers of other companies who will rebrand them. For some time (not sure if they still do) they made some receivers for both Denon and Marantz.

That's good to know since Denon and Marantz are reputable.

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

As I stated above every HDMI AVR I've used has had an occasional glitch. From handshakes issues to not displaying the OSD until toggled. Denon, Onkyo, Sony all had their quirks as we call them. The R-972 is about the same in my set up as the others. I press "Watch a BD" on my remote and it will come on and switch to Video 1. There is the audio delay but you have to remember how much processing is going on with Trinnov and it is at most six seconds when I am channel surfing. I don't think it is a shame at all.

Mitsubishi ~ Samsung ~ Panasonic ~ Pioneer ~ Oppo ~ Marantz ~ Toshiba

Polk ~ Klipsch ~ Sherwood/Newcastle ~ Pro-Ject ~ Def Tech ~ B&W ~ Klipsch ~ Infinity ~ Yamaha

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

Yes other receivers, especially from this time period had their HDMI issues but I have never used one as "quirky" as the 972 and the audio delay quirk is there even when Trinnov is turned off and you are not using HDMI so it is not a processing power issue.
Even with all its quirks I love the sound and what Trinnov does for my room. It really is an exceptional piece of technology.

We can only hope, I am hooked just like you.

I would really like to see Pioneer Elite drop there MCACC and adopt Trinnov in their receivers or possibly even a pre-pro. Even maybe Yamaha although it has been a long time since I had anything from them. I think the big names like Denon and Onkyo are pretty much sticking with Audyssey which is excellent until you hear 3D remapping. I figure it would be a real boost to sales for any company who does not already use Audyssey if it is marketed and implemented correctly.

I have never heard trinnov and am afraid to get a Sherwood because of issues but I agree it would be nice for at least Pioneer and Yamaha to adopt trinnov.
