don't do it!

Donna R., Newegg
20 February 2016
  • Pros: nothing
  • Cons: Receiver just up & died after only 18 months. Went on line to see if anyone else had this problem, and found several others that had theirs die about the same time limit. Was playing it, and it just all the sudden died...no more sound.

Cheep and clean, but....

Donald H., Newegg
13 November 2014
  • Pros: Clean, low distortion power for my small living room. Seems to run really cool. Initial impression is that this is a great bargain.
  • Cons: Tone and separation not controllable from the remote. D'ya know that inevitable disclaimer: "specifications subject to change without notice"? Well compare some of the FM specs in the manual to those on the Newegg and Sherwood websites: S/N: 55dB (vs. 68) Stereo Separation: 25 dB (vs. 35) IF reje...

Decent while it lasted

Peter S., Newegg
5 July 2014
  • Summary: I bought this unit and hooked it up to four 8 ohm speakers. It worked well for several months. It didn't sound bad for a cheap receiver. After several month, it failed to power-up.
  • Pros: Cheap, good customer service
  • Cons: Didn't last long

Don't buy this product if you're using in an area with marginal radio reception.

Raymond J Seto, Amazon

  • Summary: The unit comes with a very thin flimsy FM antenna wire and the antenna jack is a very tight fitting RCA-like jack but no other RCA jacks will fit or work on it so I can't get other antennas to work. My ancient $10 handheld transistor radio gets better reception.

Broke after 4 months

Thomas C., Newegg
17 January 2013
  • Summary: Since there is only a 30 day RMA, and after that you have to go through the manufacturer, avoid this "deal." I expect lots of downtime as I ship it off to some service center and then wait for it to be fixed and returned. Not worth it considering this takes down our entire entertainment system.
  • Pros: This was cheap. It worked for a while.
  • Cons: All front panel controls failed after less than four months of light use. The display still lights up, but no controls will work, either the remote or the onboard controls. It is frozen in the power on mode, with the volume stuck at where it was last used.

Froze, then died after 3 months: junk!

A reader, Amazon
17 January 2013
  • Summary: OK, we thought this was a good deal, since there were plenty of good reviews and it was only a hundred dollars. We figured we couldn't lose. We were wrong. The receiver worked fine at first. Then, after three months of light use, it froze in the on position: no controls worked.

Worked Well while it lasted

Christopher B., Newegg
15 January 2013
  • Summary: I didn't love the thing, but I was happy that it worked. NOw that it doesn't work I hate many things about it. Turned off on its own, no HDMI, kind of ugly, and lasts less than 3 months.
  • Pros: Worked well with my Polk Audio Studio 70's most of the time. At times, the sound would go out and the thing would power down. Its seemed to push my Studio 70's quite decently.
  • Cons: I bought this in November and the right audio channel is now blown and it's only January. Not even three months for a hundred bucks. Sherwood's support website doesn't even pull up for this model anymore.

You get what you pay for

Dynam0, Amazon
5 December 2012
  • Summary: I bought this receiver as an inexpensive replacement for my $300 Sony receiver that shorted out three weeks after the warranty ended (go figure). I was initially impressed with it; setup is easy, and the receiver worked fine initially. However, this receiver doesn't seem to have good reliability.

Michael H., Newegg
4 June 2012
  • Pros: Cheap
  • Cons: First one I bought at best buy was DOA Repacement lasted about two years and not working. Tuner can't pick up anything not in your back yard. The controls don't not user frendly. Save you mony and buy anything else

Inexpensive Sherwood RX-4105 Rivals More Expensive Receivers

Danderoo, Amazon
3 September 2011
  • Summary: The Sherwood RX-4105 Two-Channel (100 Watts each channel) is remarkable. Its sound performance rivals far more expensive audio equipment. Please disregard the critical review about it over heating.
