Good sound and versatility for the cost,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sherwood RX-4109 200W Stereo Receiver - Black (Electronics)
In my research, this appeared to be a somewhat upgraded cousin of the more common Sherwood RX1405. Their costs are generally about the same, and they're both 100W 2 speaker set amps, but this one appears to be easier to use, and very importantly, and rarely amomg modern budget recievers, includes phono ports and phono grounding. I got this in case I got a turntable without a preamp, and I ultimately did after being disappointed with the cheaper preamp loaded turntables. It has 4 audio inputs, labled tape, aux, cd and phono, so you can hook a few things into it (and outside of the phone ports, it's not picky about what's plugged into a given port, all that matters is what mode is displayed on its front display) and also has a pair of output jacks. Example, I have a turntable into the phono, cd player into the cd, and my PC into the aux ports, and might run my a tv into the tape jack. It comes with a remote that's well layed out (including bass/treble functions) and AM&FM antennas that do an ok job; its reception is kind of all-or-nothing. The sound is pretty nice (I have it hooked up to a set of Sony SS-B3000 Bookshelf Speakers with 8" Woofer (Pair) that at its prefered load of 8 ohms compliment it well) and its got enough oomph to really fill an 11x11' room at about 30% volume.
