Sherwood's jumping in the game with a couple of new receivers to highlight during this week's CEDIA event, the RD-7505 (pictured) and RD-705i. Similar except for the 705i's addition of WiFi and network (DLNA, UPnP) streaming features they bring all the HDMI 1.4, 3D ready, dual zone control and loss

Why have two gadgets when you can have one that does two things? The answer, of course, is when that one thing doesn't do either of its two tasks well -- the Jack of All Trades Syndrome. When Sherwood told us last year it was making a receiver that had built-in network playback capabilities, meanin

Sherwood has been running with the network connectivity ball ever since it adopted Verismo's VuNow hardware into its receivers. We dropped by their booth before departing CES to get a quick look at the functionality in action (video embedded after the break), plus put our hands and eyes on the comp

All right, traditionalists -- if Sherwood's NetBoxx AVR with all its internet streaming is too radical for you, the R-972 and R-774 might strike a chord with your \"the receiver must have a volume knob\" sensibilities. The 7x100-Watt R-972 has been awaited mostly for its 3D Trinnov Optimizer room equ

Not sure if you've noticed, but CEDIA has just kicked off down in the ATL. One of the first to introduce something genuinely fresh is Sherwood (of all companies), with its R-904N NetBoxx pulling double duty as a 7.1-channel AV receiver and an internet media portal. For starters, the compact set-top

If Sherwood's BDP-5003 were a buck fifty or so, this thing may actually be worth buying. After all, critics loved the quick start-up and disc load time, appreciated the \"very good\" image quality and stellar audio performance and bowed to the easy-to-use onscreen menu system. So, what's the problem

Who knew that the trials and tribulations of Sherwood's BDP-5003 Blu-ray player could mirror the drama of the movies it plays? First shown off at CEDIA, then delayed and most recently threatened with the axe, but now Sherwood has brought its $300, Profile 1.1 Blu-ray player to the market, just in t

Whoa, this player didn't last very long -- first there was the delay, and now the Sherwood Blu-ray players announced at CEDIA, may never see the light of day. The reason is a good one for consumers, which is that Blu-ray player prices are dropping so fast that Sherwood doesn't think its player woul

All those eagerly awaiting the Sherwood's lower end Blu-ray offering, the BDP-5003, must readjust their October launch expectations by one month. Unfortunately, at $299, a pretty standard Bonus View equipped player doesn't really scream \"value\" to us -- unless compared to similar high price marque

Hate to say it, but Sherwood's BDP-6003 was the lousiest looking BD deck on the CEDIA show floor. The entire thing just screamed cheap, and quite honestly, it's not a player we'd be proud to show off. Sure, for $150 or so we wouldn't even give the looks a second thought, but given the $499 price ta

Sherwood's been known mainly for its audio, but TWICE has the details on two new Blu-ray players on the way at CEDIA. Consisting of the high end $499 MSRP BDP-6003 and the mass market-targeted $299 BDP-5003 are both Bonus View Profile 1.1 players that upscale all content to 1080p and decode all Blu-
