AV-receiver Sherwood RV-5050R

Model Sherwood RV-5050R is attracting competent layout of the controls that combines clever design and functional separation. Machine control from the front panel is simple and convenient, including because there is an abundance of additional (read - extra) functions. Only the most necessary - Dolby Pro Logic and Dolby 3-Stereo. By the way, for all channels (front, center and rear) on the rear panel provides preamp outputs for the case if you wish to use them for a separate power amplifier. And again, to the front, you can connect external amplifiers "before".

When we saw the remote receiver Sherwood RV-5050R, the number of buttons which exceeded fifty, the hand she reached for the instruction seemed, without it we can not do. But after a few seconds it became clear that it is not. Handling the remote control was enough simply due to the fact that each button corresponds to only one specific function. For example, it is impossible to scan the frequency tuner, work with the memorized stations. But you can reduce the brightness of the display board, until it is completely off, that when watching TV in a dark room is not superfluous. The console also is tuned Surround channels and control of external components - EQ, tape recorders and CD-player (you can even multi-disc). But, of course, all of this must be from Sherwood.

Receiver Sherwood RV-5050R mode DPL provides a small signal penetration of one channel to another. Perhaps that is why he has bound confident enough sound to the source. He is equally well succeed scale scenes and dialogues, the localization of small and extended sources. When a source of sound, of course, was not always tonally perfect, but played back smoothly, without failing volume. It is necessary to carefully approach the speaker setup with increasing distance between the front speakers (or when you are closer to them) can sometimes seem like the scene in front of you as if torn. However, it is more noticeable on the stereo. Small problem: will experiment with the placement of acoustics and finding the angle of rotation of columns. In stereo mode, gains were modest. The testbed was too choosy regarding connected speakers. Compared with competitors give balanced sound spectrum Sherwood RV-5050R «wanted» only upscale acoustics, which is able to reproduce deep bass. It is better to aim at buying a subwoofer. Natural alignment of symphony orchestra instruments stored at lower levels. Only sometimes it seemed that the soft sounds of shock lose sharp contours and slightly closed strong forte of the entire orchestra.

With the tuner had to tinker until it was found satisfactory position of the antenna. Here Sherwood RV-5050R showed himself more capricious than the rest of the test. The sound with FM slightly lacking treble and bass, on the contrary, it seemed a bit much (that allow you to do it yourself on the radio with sound)!
