This review is from: Sherwood RD-7405HDR 7.1-Channel High Performance A/V Receiver
Pros: Superb sound quality, great versatility, HD reception is solid and stable in my deep-fringe area
Cons: Cluttered remote with too many similar sized/shaped buttons. I'm a geek, and I couldn't hook the thing up without reading the manual...confusing back-panel layout!
Other Thoughts: This replaces an aging Pioneer with failing microprocessor which suddenly goes haywire. I've been looking for a receiver for some time, and wanted HD radio, but in an inexpensive package. This one filled the bill. Don't worry about the 40hz-20khz frequency response spec. That's a power bandwidth spec, not an indication of the unit's frequency response. The bottom octave (20-40hz) is there in full measure.
I'm using the unit in stereo, as music listening is what's most important to me. It's driving a pair of Energy C3 speakers that cost more than twice as much as the receiver...and doing a wonderful job. The headphone section is great too, with no trouble driving difficult loads like my Sennheiser HD580, and Beyerdynamic DT990 pro. With an easier load like the Bose on-ear 'phones, it's just coasting. Wonderful product at an amazing price!
