Inexpensive and the amplifier works well

I bought this receiver because of its speaker switching capability. Well, it doesn't work. Both the A and C speakers (I only have two pair connected) continue to play regardless of the speaker setting. This impacts the second audio source selection,...

Great product for the price

 

Price, price, price ; There isn't a 4-channel amp in this price range, at all. It outputs enough power to fill my half acre back yard with four pairs of speakers, easily. I can keep a nice low volume, yet fill the entire space with audio

Full power for both A & B Speakers

 

Got this receiver to drive two sets of Polk Audio bookshelf speakers. The previous amp would overload and shut down at a volume level louder than normal speech. The Polk speakers are rated at 8 ohms each. The dual A & B channel amps on the Sherwood...

Excellent sound for an easy to install receiver.

 

Bought over the phone. Jesse, the tech guy, explained everything to me and offered to assist me if I had trouble hooking up TV, DVD, CD and speakers. It arrived within 3 days, intact. Spent 3 hours identifying which speaker wires controlled each...

Poor remote control function.

 

The unit works fine. The remote has only a 6ft range. Zaps battery power from the two triple AAA batteries and does not function at all after two days use. I would not have purchased the product if I had known the remote was going to be a problem.

Not many Stereo Receiver out there to choose from

 

I was looking for a music only system and I found what I needed in this system. There are a lot of theater surround sound systems out there but I feel that they do not give you the sound that you can get from a stereo receiver. I use this system for...
