Summary: THIS IS THE WORST EXPERIENCE I HAVE EVER HAD SHOPPING ON LINE. THE FIRST THING IS I RECEIVED MY ORDER OF THE SHERWOOD RX-4100 STEREO RECEIVER AND ONCE RECEIVING IT, I PLUGGED IT IN THE SOCKET AND IT DOES NOT POWER ON. I LET THEM KNOW ABOUT IT AND I SENT IT BACK. THEN I RECEIVED AN EMAIL TELLING ME THAT I AM ONLY GETTING .80 PLUS CENTS BACK DUE TO THE CORD BEING CUT. THE CORD WAS CUT WHEN I RECEIVED IT.

Summary: I have owned this receiver for over a year since i burned my old JVC out. I have two brand new Cerwin Vega V-series speakers with 12" woofers that i use daily, i can power both of these speakers to maximum power before the speaker "maxes out" with this Reciever giving off very little heat. also a the reciver is great at shutting itself off if the wires short, something that can destroy other receivers.
Summary: This Amplifier is worth the $100. Although the specs claim to have 5 Audio Inputs...Including a TV/AUX, You will need to Purchase a Pre-Amplifier if you plan to use a TurnTable. The Amp I was replacing was OLD...Before Remotes...and had a Max Output of 50 Watts Per Channel...But the Phonograph was Plug and Play. In today's world, CD's have virtually replaced Albumns, so it is no longer necessary to have a pre-amp for the majority of purchasers..
Summary: Sound quality okay; generally clean good for background music and ambient audio when hooked up to video system. Power good, but lack of decent tone controls limits musical enjoyment, however. Typical of many new-age units, the lack of [meaningful] bass/treble controls make it hard to tailor the sound to any environment. There are only five settings each, and they provide minimum boost over a very limited spectrum. This is why they invented equalizers.
Summary: BUT I LOVE THIS THING!! For less than $..., I got an entertainment hub that can handle VCR, cassette tape, DVD and CD players, along with AM and FM tuner, 105 watts a channel and a great name from hi-fi's past to boot! The lush, spatial stereo this unit provides will probably have me buying Sherwood amplifiers, preamps or receivers until some Japanese or Dutch electronics giant buys them up, (if they haven't already!
