View Full Version : HT Noob needs your opinion/advice
01-26-2006, 12:31 PM
I have immeresed myself over the last few weeks in researching receivers in anticipation of my tax refund. I'm doing an entry level HT and I've narrowed my search down to a refurbed Denon AVR-1705 or a new Sherwood 8601. I have chose these two because they are both in the same price range (D=$200, S=$240) and they both offer up video conversion from RCA, coax, S-video etc. to component video. So I guess the question is which one? Thanks.

Old school sherwood was good. I haven't kept up with their current stuff. Probably can't go wrong with the Denon.

I sport a Denon AVR-3805 and have 0 complaints but I have no idea how the lower models sound. I'm sure they sound fine though. Can't go wrong with Denon any time really.:)

I'll sell you my kenwood. 5.1, 100Wx5, Pro-Logic I, II, Built in DSP, Aux-in. I'll include a Line-out convertor so you can use a powered sub and some RCA's if your interested. Sorry if its thread jacking but It'd save you $100. PM me if you want pics or if your interested.
Edit: forgot to mention its d@mn near brand new and looks mint...
