Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

Well unfortunately I just found your message in my computers spam mailbox (new anti-virus). I did sell my back up unit to a fellow on AVS forums, I got the full price I paid of $499 & shipping. Did you find one? Are you still interested in one? If you are really feeling desperate for one, I may consider selling my other that I just got in Jan. as well. It's in the house system which I just watch movies when we get them in, otherwise my wife does about all the watching and is just fine with the soundbar also hooked up to the set. My ebay id is heartwood29 if you cared to look. Thanks for responding anyway...Rob

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

Just wanted to post a big "Thank You!" to all that contributed useful information as to how to get these up and running.

I purchased my first 972 right before Thanksgiving 2012, to replace an older Sherwood AVR in my bonus room setup, that was part of the SLS Audio HTIB from Bestbuy. That said, I was aware of the crazy remote beforehand.

That install unfortunately was delayed, but I read enough to know that if you could deal with the quirks, you would be rewarded with the some fantastic performance. Due to this I bought another one around Thanksgiving 2013, and I've just finished the lengthy process of reworking my entire main system setup. I followed the advice in this thread, and had the system up and configured in short order due to the wealth of information here. If only cable management had been this easy!

It does produce an amazing sound-stage, the dialogue is so much improved over my Denon 3803.

Hopefully my schedule will allow me to finally complete my secondary system soon. I can only hope my other setup goes as smoothly.

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

I noticed you have a turntable set-up with your R-972. I'm trying to connect an Pioneer PL-D12 II using a Parasound PPH 100 pre amp. I have the pre amp running into my Ext In (L/R jacks). Is that correct?

Thanks for any assistance you can provide.

As was mentioned in your first post you need to have them plugged into "tape" or Aux" input not the external multi channel analog inputs and then assign them to an analog input in the user menu.

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

So that is done. The OSM will not allow me to assign anything to tape, other than change the name. No audio still. My pre-amp is cold as a stone...is that natural?

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

At this point I am not certain the pre-amp is working. It's newly acquired and is MC/MM capable, but I think it should be generating some heat, which it isn't. I bought it used off ebay. Thankfully a reputable seller and I have a note into them for some support.

I believe if you hook the TT directly up to the R972 you should hear something although very quiet just to confirm that it's not the input on the 972.
