For $80 you did fine. I used to own a SN receiver and 5 channel amp and I thought they were very well built. I sold them after about 10 years of them working flawlessly.

I used to have one of these, pretty good receiver. It generally got favourable reviews and most notable was its two channel performance.

One quirk I found was there was a lot clicking on the soundtrack when playing DTS material. While trying to find out if it was a fault it turned out to be the chipset used. I assume it does not affect all units.

There is a manual here:

http://www.manualslib.com/manual/262202/Sherwood-R-956.html#manual

A quick look at the specs on page 34
PRE OUT(Front, Rear, F-Center, R-Center, Subwoofer), 1 kΩ..................................................... 1.0 V

I found that the subwoofer output was too low using a Rel Q100E sub and used the high level output via the speaker terminals, as I used with my previous Sherwood which had no dedicated sub out.
