This review is from: Sherwood RX-4109 Stereo Remote Controlled Receiver with Phono Section

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.
