Summary: PRO: The surround sound quality is excellent. Clear sound! Rear component plug-ins were a snap. The owner's manual is clear to read. The accessories are good quality, The shipping arrival was 2 days early ! Bluetooth. Con: No extra power outlets in the rear of the Amp. Had to buy an extra power strip. Have to re-set the source component in-put dial every time you turn it back on.
Summary: I was considering an up grade of my 15 year old, or about, Sony 150 tower speakers, which are equivalent to the 7000 series, to improve base response. Then, thought to up grade my 2 channel Sony str185 100 watt per channel receiver, which is close to the same age, with a 2.1 to add a sub woofer. I came to the conclusion after purchasing the RX5403 2.1 that I was content. I was pleasantly surprised with the difference in bass, clarity and definition.
Summary: This is a bare bones 100 watt receiver but I love it so far! I have a small place and did have a Yamaha surround sound 5.1 speaker thang....receiver gave up it's ghost and then I sent for this SHERWOOD and it's been fine.....good price for the product!
Summary: This is a great receiver and meets and exceeds my expectations in all categories. My only mistake was that I didn't order the next model up with more input ports. Not Sherwood's fault but the consumer messed up!
Summary: I like that i can control speakers A&B, bass and treble from remote. I have TV and computer hooked up to it... ... didn't realize that bluetooth dogle doesn't come with unit... they are kinda hard to find and can run almost $90 with shipping... bummer... PS - it has 2 power buttons / if you want turn off/on with remote u have to use standby button. no big deal but kinda weird...
Summary: This is a great receiver, with plenty of power. I am currently daisy-chaining 2 pairs of speakers instead of connecting one pair to each pair of jacks on the back. My speakers are Bose 301s and Bose 161s. I could connect the two pairs of speakers up to each of the A and B speakers connectors on the back, but I'd have double sets of wires to hide/manage. So I decided to go with the daisy chaining idea... and there's no problem. Plenty of power with lots to spare.
Summary: I replaced an ancient receiver, of good quality, with this receiver, and as an average listener, I feel I got a good deal, in both quality and price. As usual, Amazon came through again, as after a couple of weeks, I had a minor problem with the product and they replaced it, in an amazingly short time, and I have have had no further problems. GO AMAZON. I feel this receiver has provided me with what I asked for, with a good price.
