Sherwood America Inc., one of the world’s leading manufacturers of high performance audio equipment, will be showcasing their new flagship receiver at this year’s Audioholics State of the CE Union trade show. Rated at 100 watts RMS per channel for each of its 7 powered channels, the Sherwood R-972 ($1,799) fully supports HDMI 1.3 standard, scales all video to 1080p via the Silicon Optix Reon processor, decodes lossless audio via dual TI 32-bit DSP chips, uses a Dual Mode™ RF plus IR remote control and marks the debut of the Trinnov Optimizer Digital Room Correction system in a consumer device.

According to Jeffrey Hipps, Sherwood's Sr. VP for Marketing and Product Planning, "The R-972 was designed offer a completely contemporary suite of high performance audio/video features, yet it needed to stand out from the pack. By incorporating small differences like our use of an RF remote control for complete system operation, a special installer memory block that can recall the units initial settings at any time and one big difference, our inclusion of the Trinnov Optimizer Room Correction System, I think we are 100% on target to have one of the most popular demos at this year’s show.” In fact, this is the first time this receiver has been demoed to the public and its certainly a must hear demo you won't want to miss.
