Summary: It's almost impossible to find a home AV receiver with HD radio. Paired with the Monoprice 108247 5.1 speaker system , I was able to put together a surround sound system for $300 using all my old components. My cassette player, my carrousel CD player, VCR, and Playstation all worked flawlessy. I did purchase a new Blu-Ray player. My vintage Dual turntable even works with the addition of a in-line phono pre-amp which cost a whopping $15. What a deal!
Summary: I like this receiver quite a bit. It was easy to set up, but the real reason I purchased it was for the HD Radio. Unfortunately this is limited in my area, but when the signal is strong enough, it is very cool getting 'extra' radio stations (I've not had any luck picking up HD AM stations yet). My only complaint is that it may be a little on the quiet side.
Sometimes you have to order Twice to get it right!

Summary: For the money one cannot go wrong with purchase of the Sherwood RD-7406HDR 7.1 70 Watt Dual-Zone Receiver with HD unless when one places their order the shipper sends you a totally different stereo! That's ok just as long you do not give up and demand that they send you out what you ordered. However once I received my true order I must say that I am very happy with the product! Happy shopping!
Good affordable surround sound receiver with HD radio built-in
8 July 2013
Summary: Great receiver for the price and having HD radio built in. Does not have all the surround sound features of its more expensive version but is great for our multi-room use. It is not a powerful amplifier so efficient good sounding speakers are recommended. Great feature about this unit is a power button and stand by button. The power button can be turned off and it is really off not on standby but it has that option too.
Summary: I admit that I grossly under use the potential of this product. I got this because it has an optical Toslink audio input. So I basically use this product to convert an optical audio signal to analog and allow me to adjust the volume of my earphones. In my situation I cannot play speakers. I do use the HD radio at times which further justifies adding this unit to my entertainment system.
