Sherwood Stereo Remote Controlled Receiver with Phono Section

With 105 Watts RMS per channel, phono section, binding posts, a versatile remote control and switching for two pairs of loudspeakers, the only thing that bespeaks the word "budget" about the RX-4109 is its modest cost.

3 out of 5 eggsOkay

Pros: Plays music through speakers. Cheap.

Cons: Got hot and shut off after about 30 minutes of loud heavy metal. I never noticed any degradation in sound quality, it just turned itself off. Turned it back on at the same volume and it went right back off after a minute or two. Maybe a fan would solve this..... Doesn't sound as good as the Onkyo that it replaced, not as warm.

Other Thoughts: I use it to power two 6.5" Klipsch speakers for TV viewing. It does this sufficiently. Avoid if you want lots of volume.

2 out of 5 eggsLow Price - Low Qulity

Pros: Has photograph input

Cons: Only lasted 4 months. I only used if for a few hours on weekends and it stopped working after 4 months.

Other Thoughts: I shipped it to a local service center (at my expense) and it was repaired and returned in a 8 days. When you by low end products you get low end quality.

4 out of 5 eggsnot bad for a budget reciever

Pros: affordable
good sound quality for a budget receiver
has worked reliably for over two years

Cons: only partially programmable with a standard DirecTV remote

Other Thoughts: I'm sure serious audiophiles' ears would bleed if they listened to music though this receiver, but for me it's been an affordable and reliable receiver for my entertainment system for over two years. The only "problem" is that I can't turn on or off the receiver's power with the DirectTV remote.

3 out of 5 eggsNot Fabulous

Pros: Price; Fairly Solid Construction; Nice Speaker Binding Posts; Decent Power

Cons: Sound Quality isn't great; power isn't what it should be for a 100WPC+ receiver, I don't like how everything's digitalized (volume knob, bass/treble, etc).

Other Thoughts: Bought this originally to replace an old (late 1980s) Onkyo TX-902 primarily for the additional power...turns out I prefer the Onkyo by far...this Sherwood went into the shed for a simple outdoor system. The sound quality just isn't there, and I see no power difference between this and my old TX-902. It works great for a shed or garage system, though.

I was going to use it to drive Polk Monitor 70 speakers, because I thought my Onkyo wouldn't be powerful enough, but the Onkyo actually does very well, the Sherwood didn't make them sound good at all.

1 out of 5 eggsWorthless

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: Cheap, as in it stopped working after a week.

Other Thoughts: Aside from the whole "defective" thing it was a pretty good receiver while it lasted. If you're willing to take a chance on it then it might give you good value for your money...or it might break after a week like mine did.

5 out of 5 eggsExellecent for price/performance

Pros: Simple
Very little 'in between' circuitry to alter sound
Very clean at high wattage
Very clean mid and high range
Uses higher end capacitors
Included remote is better than average
Large, Bright display
Plentiful inputs
Basic EQ controls
Solid speaker connections (no the clip type)
Metal casing and brushed metal feet, looks fairly snazzy, the unit itself feels well designed.

Let's face it, you only have two ears and you need a nice amp for a stereo setup. With this selection, you can't go wrong. Sherwood is a good name and uses quality parts in this unit, you won't be disappointed for the price you pay on this unit.

Cons: Construction isn't the best, though it meets the price level.

The volume knob feels as if it will fall off, but it solid when I tug or push on it.

The AM radio antenna is somewhat difficult to install, however I am not using it any longer.

Other Thoughts: I purchased mine at a local retailer (includes 'shack').
I normally use the remote so I don't push the buttons very often. This may prove and issue for some users.

I'm running mine on some vintage Altec 887A Capri's. I changed to this amp from an old Sony designed amp, and the difference felt night and day. I use a splitter and use an old PC speaker subwoofer, so I can't conclude on the bass quality coming from the unit. From what I can tell on my Altec's, the bass is certainly punchy and tight.

I suggest using some banana plugs with this unit, it saves a lot of wire hassle.
