Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

It sounds like Sherwood's customer service is becoming dodgy.Keep contacting them til' they give you a definitive response.They owe you that much at least!


I think the fact that so many refurbished units were being sold speaks volumes about the products stability, IMHO!

People have been buying refurbs that come from Sherwood that were being sold on ebay by different sellers for around $300.There seemed to be a lot of them being sold.

I never mentioned about buying refurbs from AC4less.

Have you ever bought a used item with a warranty? I never have.That's new to me.

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

Well after trying to find a time that my wife was not watching TV, which was the middle of the night, i finally got my 972 all hooked up. Then I had to find a time to get the Trinnov setup done, but finally got that finished. So now I am ready to sit back and enjoy some movies on the new system. I found the manual to be kind of sketchy, but was able to get the assignments done after a little trial and error. The Trinnov was a breeze to setup though. Worked perfect first try. I am still a little concerned about heat as I have it in an AV cabinet. It is open in front and back but surrounded on all sides. I put a pair of cooling fans on top of the receiver that are made for stereos so i think that should move enough air to keep it cool. Just listening to the radio sounded great, so i can't wait to try a movie.

Congrats Mike on your new toy! Don't be selfish though. Be sure to share that Trinnov love with others, lol

I love using 2 channel stereo analog out from my CD player to the CD in on the back of the R-972. You can still engage Trinnov if you want even those this way is not digital. While going stereo analog I have Remastering and Pure Audio engaged. I notice the most amount of difference in those features this way! Lots to explore! Enjoy!!!

Where do you see used 972's for $300? I can't find ONE let alone "a lot of them being sold"..

As far as buying used item with a warranty, I have bought hundreds of used items that still had factory warranty remaining, not sure the point of your post?

I have no idea why someone would buy a used 972 when you can get them brand new for $599 at accessories4less (not refurbished) with a 3 year warranty.

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
