You have a 5.1 set up ?

Still remember my first listen to it, in 5.1,like old times when one was rushing home with the new Beatles singel and it took 5 straight times playing it, just to get down to regular heart beat !{#Smile} And the heart beat not acquired from the running.{#Wink}

The S-9910 was their top of the line model conservatively rated at 100 wpc. It has an MSRP of $725 and used they go $300 ish. Very nice sounding receiver and worth fixing.
I have a 1957 Sherwood S5000 tube integrated and after owning dozens of tube integrated amps from the era I think its one of the best sounding and its also a good buy because it doesn't sell for near as much as the equivalent Scotts, Fishers etc that don't sound any better. The Sherwoods were still made in Chicago then and the output transformers where made by Chicago Transformer  and very high quality.
 
I need to move it into the house then. Maybe I can find a place for it in my office, and maybe I can find an inexpensive turntable that I can trust with my vinyl so I can really hear it.

Yes like most the other big names they all switched to overseas construction in the 70's unfortunately.

Hey Dave, what do you know about the old Sherwoods? I have an S-9910. It's the garage tunes. It really hasn't been tested since I've owned it. I've heard it has a reputation of having a tube amp sound. To me it looks like stereo gear is supposed to look. The reason I ask is because some of the inputs no longer work. It's needs a good cleaning. I'm wondering if it's worth it.

I'm nowhere near an expert, but my dad had a Sherwood...7050, I think.  It always struck me as fairly decent gear.

Edit - Was wrong, his was the 7100A.  Still...probably worth going after it with some Deoxit.

Right. As you know, sometimes they stick audio only on the DVD Video format, at 24/96. That's not bad, but I don't really need that. Since it's video, I really need it.

Cool! I'm adding that to my wish list. 

Speaking of cool things, one of my favorite performances on DVD is Stevie Ray Vaughan, Live at the El Mocambo. Borderline supernatural! In case anyone here is an SRV fan.

Is that DVD Video with video? Or DVD Video with 24/96 audio. I can't seem to figure that out. If it has video I need to get it.
