Distributed Audio Stereo Receiver
This receiver is perfect for music listening in any room of the home, with conventional left/right stereo output. What sets it apart is the existence of four amplifier channels instead of the traditional two, allowing up to four pairs of speakers to be directly driven from the receiver.

Product Description

    This receiver creates a self contained, four–zone distributed audio system, perfect for residential or small office background music applications. Up to four pairs of bookshelf, in–wall, in–ceiling or outdoor speakers may be driven directly from this unit, with independent selection of any or all pairs.

    The receiver includes two independent source busses as well, allowing speaker pairs A and B to select from one source, while pairs C and D select from a separate source. This allows one part of the residence to be listening to (for example), the CD changer, while another area listens to the FM tuner.

Product Reviews

  • "My review" by wallofsound on 11/16/2013
    Overall: 4.5 out of 5

    I chose this system because I wanted to run the three sets of floor speakers I have. I listen to heavy Rock music, loudly, and this system rattles the windows well. It does seem to take the upper end of the volume knob to get there though. It also completes the home entertainment system for movie watching experience. It allows me to "feel" the whole experience. And it didn't cost a thousand dollars either. Great sound at a low price.

  • "Unique product without competition" by rolandocordero on 8/2/2013
    Overall: 4 out of 5

    This receiver is unique, it offers 4 amplifiers that can be used as a single zone or as two zones, the sound quality is very good and powerful for the price of this unit. It has outputs for four sets of stereo speakers, A and B for zone 1, plus C and D for zone 2, or you could use all four in zone 1. Good as it is, Sherwood could improve the ergonomics, both in the main panel and in the remote. There used to be a Marantz 3 zone amplifier (ZS-5300) which had the best solution I´ve seen: Zone 1 controls, Zone 2 controls, Zone 3 controls, Global controls, everybody understood it right away, even the most technophobes. I wish Sherwood improves this unit receiver in that way. Also, a higher priced version with 2 Airplay zones will be welcome.

  • "LKryger" by LKryger on 12/10/2012
    Overall: 5 out of 5

    Very good product for price. Easy to set up except for connecting external speakers. No definitive directions, only a drawing showing lines representing wires for connecting speakers. No indication that a jack adaptor or such would be available for attaching speakers. I had to cut RCA jacks off the end of my speaker wires and use bare wires for connections. No external FM antena connection for a home made antenna just a 75ohm jack.

  • "Great unit for the money" by Bob Durk on 12/10/2012
    Overall: 4 out of 5

    I have been using this receiver for well over a year now and I am very happy with it. I was able to integrate this amplifier into my home audio system and enjoy that there is a separate On and Off button on the remote instead of just a toggle function for power. IR codes were easy to learn and I can now control this receiver with my home automation controller. This is a nice whole house receiver as it has dual stereo outputs for multi room applications . It is well built and looks like a quality product .

  • "Sherwood" by scpurdy on 2/29/2012
    Overall: 5 out of 5

    Perfect for my application, nice features for a good price.

  • "Sherwood 4-channel receiver'" by 6886298 on 6/11/2009
    Overall: 5 out of 5

    Good sounding unit. Like having two receivers with the footprint of one. Gives the owner versatility in selecting program material for two seperate locations, or placing two distinct speaker setups in the same room and independently controlling their volume. I am very well satisfied with this receiver.
