Well sold my pioneer vsx-820 and a got sherwood Newcastle r-956 paid $80 for it and it is like new works 100% got remote and that works all the manuals an certificate of performance. it sounds soo good! anything I should know about this receiver.
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.
