Sherwood RD-8601 Receiver
Product Review:
Dolby Digital EX, DTS-ES Receiver with Component Video Switching, Universal Video Upconversion, Automatic Speaker Set-Up and On-Screen Display

With most audio brands, you'd expect to pay a lot of money for a "flagship", top-of-the-line receiver. In fact, it's possible to spend upwards of $5,000 to get the best receiver some brands have to offer.

Only $399.95

We're not playing that game at Sherwood. For less than one-tenth that amount we offer our Sherwood RD-8601. It decodes all of Hollywood's latest movie formats including DTS-ES (both Discrete and Matrix) and Dolby Digital EX. It has fully adjustable Dolby Pro Logic IIx to turn broadcast TV, VHS tapes and even 2-channel CD's into 6 channel magic; Dolby Headphone for amazing private surround listening and Dolby Virtual Speaker to reproduce full surround effects from only 2 speakers. With six 100 watt per channel, high current, discrete amplifiers on board, sound quality for the 8601 is superb. So is ease of use. The RD-8601 not only has switching for 3 audio/video source units, 3 for audio only and 2 for high-def signals, it is one of the few receivers in the world with Universal Videoâ„¢ to change all video signals to a single component video output. It even offers automatic speaker set-up, complete with supplied microphone, to minimize the hassle normally required for initial operation. Control is possible using the built-in On-Screen Display, from the front panel or via the 8-unit preprogrammed remote control. Additional conveniences include the capability for 3 Macro remote command sequences, one-touch operation of Sherwood DigiLink III components, display dimmer, sleep timer and more.
