Review from Home Theater Magazine

Review from HomeTheaterMag.com: Sherwood RD-7503

Home Theater Magazine ReviewsIn A/V receivers, as in so many other things, new technologies start in mid- to high-priced models and work their way down. Once they have fully penetrated all or most of a manufacturer’s line, consumers who are on a budget have the same access to, say, lossless surround that more upscale buyers do. Then we at Home Theater uncork bottle after bottle of champagne in wild celebration, peel grapes for one another, run up and down the hallway, and don’t get much done for a few days.

Product Description

Sherwood's RD-7503 7.1 channel audio/video receiver with HDMI 1.3 is ideal for switching between inputs and encoding formats to produce brilliant, accurate sound. With Dolby True-HD, the RD-7503 delivers the sounds that make home-theater realistic. HDTV and Blu-Ray are more than just great images. they are also about sound. TV delivers 5.1 channels while Blu-Ray is capable up to 7.1 channels. If you don't have a surround sound component system, you're losing a great deal of what high-definition is about. The Sherwood RD-7503 advanced 7.1 channel audio/video receiver is the heart and mind of that component system, ready to deliver the best home-theater sound to your home entertainment system.

This thing is chock-full-of-features, perhaps to the negative because it makes it all very complicated for someone who just wants to plug it in and rock the house. But if you take your time, you will appreciate the fact that these extra options allow for more flexibility when it comes to working in a heterogeneous electronic home environment. I have a mixed bag of blueray, X-Box, Wii, Dish Network, etc. components - so it took a while to set it up correctly. The easiest way to get all these working is to run all your video components to your TV (HDMI preferred) and then HDMI and Optical (audio) out to your amp (i.e. "video 1" channel) - though I make no claim that it's the right way :). I would recommend this amp to a friend, but warn them that the remote/feature set is complex. It's a great low-cost model for someone who wants all the features/connection options...

I bought this since it has 3 HDMI inputs. I can then output to my TV via the 1 HDMI output.

It has inputs galore. No shortage of devices can be plugged in.

Instructions and remote are the "stereo"typical stereo instructions. Very technical.

Sound is fine. I have it hooked up to surround sound. I have a Apple TV (hdmi), cable box (hdmi), LG Blu-ray/netflix player (hdmi and optical) hooked up to it. It allows for only 3 video inputs.

The only issue I had was with the LG Blu-Ray/neflix player. Netflix audio did not stream over HDMI. I connected an optical cable and configured the receiver and player to use optical. Problem solved.

Uses about 40 watts on standby, which isn't much of a power savings feature. I just turn it off. The "soft" off button is standby. You have to get up and push a button in/out to turn it completely off.

i got this Sherwood, which is clearly out of its league, for example w/ Sony, Denon & Onkyo, primarily for the price, and the fact it has the appropriate analog cable inputs for an DVD-A/SACD players w/, multi-channel audio. VERY FEW receivers these days do, unless you want to mortgage your house to get one. but it has clear disadvantages: the fact is if you use the HDMI-Audio output from a DVD-A/SACD player, at least from my Pioneer Dv610av - which has become defective in a few other areas - it won't play SACDs and certain DVD-As. (it says in the manual certain SACDs will not play using the HDMI-A output.) some good aspects are that it has plenty of power, fairly low distortion, lots of surround options, 7.1 channels, a second room option (if you don't use the back channels), a good remote, which is mostly unimportant to me since i use a Universal Harmony 700 for 6 devices, (but you need a good remote to program for the learning keys). two of the nicest features is it does a bang-up job of simulating surround sound w/ the Panorama setting on all the speakers from a stereo source, like a CD, and the Dolby EX setting, which gives you 7.1 sound from most 5.1 TV broadcasts. one group of surround settings i NEVER USE tho, is the hall, stadium, room, classic, etc. they all sound absolutely fake to me. you are better off using the Dolby ProLogic IIx music/movie/game settings w/ Panorama. (i have never used the tuner. i stick w/ my CDs/DVDs, etc. & Pandora.) it has it flaws however: the menu STINKS and is rather cryptic. you have to view it from a separate video output which is a pain in the neck, because you have to switch gears to do it, and change the inputs to your HDTV. the display which surround setting you are on, unless you are changing it, is too small to read at a distance.Read more ›

rated as 100 watts per channel. Running 5.1 polk 50 watt speakers. Music high volume no distortion, adjustable treb - bass(I mean high volume). Surround works great but you are going to have to find which one of the preset levels works best.

Mentioned in other reviews but Receiver to TV OPTICAL FIBER connection ($25 radio shack) run components to receiver HDMI. Running TV, Blue Ray, XBOX, Wii, DVR, cable.
