Product Details

Sherwood RX-4105 Stereo Receiver

In our surround-sound driven audio universe, where home theater enthusiasts hear airplanes fly overhead and bombs exploding around them, one might think that "mere" stereo is old-fashioned. Don't be mislead — we have only two ears and stereo is still a significant life form. Case in point: the new Sherwood RX-4105 stereo receiver. It's actually an update of the market-leading Sherwood RX-4100. Rated at 100 watts per channel, distortion on the RX-4105 has been significantly reduced—it's now less than 0.20% from 20 Hz to 20 kHz!

Improved reliability and a new layout are included, as is an AM/FM tuner with the ability to pre-set up to 30 favorite stations. Four audio source inputs will accommodate all of your gear, and the sound is phenomenal — as you'd expect from a company that dates its own existence to before stereo's birth. The RX-4105 has another significant feature: the ability to select independently between two sets of loudspeakers via the supplied remote control. (Audio purists will be pleased to know that this relay-controlled switching puts the speakers in parallel, maintaining their individual sound qualities.)

Specifications: • Power output: 2 x 100 watts (20-20,000 Hz, 0.08% THD @ 8 ohms) • Unified remote control • RCA inputs: 4 • RCA outputs: 2 • Bass and treble tone controls • Totally Discrete Amplifier Stage (TDAS) • Digital Quartz PLL tuning • Tuner preset scan • 30 station presets • System illumination • Sleep timer • Dimensions: 17-3/8" W x 4-7/8" H x 14" D.

Sherwood RX-4105 Stereo Receiver is rated 4.3261 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Remote control is handy, plenty of powerI bought this to replace an ancient Kenwood receiver from the 70s (they built them well back then) that I use in my shop/garage. This one works very well - solid receiver for radio, remote is easy to set up and handy in the garage. Solid power, great price for my needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent AmpThis amp does exactly what it's advertised to do. It easily pumps 200 watts into any 8 ohm load. The volume number goes up to 63 but begins to distort at roughly 50-55 depending on the audio source (no matter how much power the speakers can handle). All functions such as the radio, RCA inputs, balance, and bass/treble equalizers work perfectly. My favorite aspect of this amp is how well the built-in circuit breaker works. If you blow your speakers, show the amp a load below 8 ohms, or attempt to bridge the left/right stereo channels, the circuit breaker kicks in within seconds and even lowers the volume when you reset the amp by pressing the power button twice. My only complaint is that the remote has a rather short working range of about 10-15 feet. Besides that, I'm very happy with this amp and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a basic 2-channel home-theater or party system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Receiver Is Great With Radio EquipmentI bought this receiver for to connect my tuners, mixer and PC to monitor short wave radio communications. This receiver really fits the bill. It's very good that it does not emit alot of noise on the AM bands, and while listening to the AM band it was very sensitive like my portable short wave receivers. I also use it to monitor my part 15 AM station, and listen to internet radio through the equalizers and mixer connected to the PC. My future plans is to get a CD recorder or player and a dual cassette deck to record short wave radio broadcasts. The FM tuner works good for tropo FM DXing, but it's not summer yet, so I will be receiving fall and winter DX. I am also going to connect a subwoofer for deeper bass through the speaker in and out terminals. So if you need a amplifer for your communications equipment get this one. I like the sound quality from the FM and AM radio and PC internet audio. It really does well for it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sherwood RX4105This receiver is a bargan for price and performance. It is not perfect but darn good sound. It does have a weakness and that is that at high levels it will shut down due to over heating. The heat sink is just not up to it at higher power. Being the guy that I am I had a shot at fixing it. I opened up the luvers on the bottom to let in more air. We'll see how that works in the long run. Second, I added in 4700/63 volt caps to the voltage rails at each output transistor. Four each total. The sound that was very good to start with is even better now. The labels are hard to see unless you are right on to of them. I'm usint this unit with a very good pair of speaker that I designed and built. Real HIFI speakers and this unit drives them very well and the sound is first rate. I bought a second unit for some friends and they love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Receiver, Plenty of Power, Be Aware of Using AB together.I purchased one of these receivers used locally and it included everything normally included when bought new. I installed the receiver in a customer's house and it powered a pair of Cerwin vega D-3's incredibly well. The room became filled with balanced sound and there is plenty of extra headroom to spare if they wanted to crank it up. I personally thought the remote was perfect for a stereo receiver, small and simple. Too many times I install system for people that they simply do not understand, this receiver is straightforward and very high quality. I was aware of the AB bridging before I purchased this receiver so when my customer wanted another set of speakers outdoors, I simply told them to make sure they turn off "A" before switching on "B" to avoid overstraining the amplifier, they love it and it works like a charm. If you have any medium to high efficiency speakers you'd like to give plenty of power, this receiver is perfect for you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sons first "real" stereo.Bought this for my sons bedroom. His room is small and limited on space so this fit in nice. Added a used Pioneer CD changer and a turntable and a new set of MTX 5i's and it does the job well. He also hooked his Ipod to one of the inputs and it adds a lot more to the system. I played with it briefly and it pulled in FM radio really well and the tone adjustments are adequate. Going to add a small powered sub to help the small speakers out. For the price it is a very good value.

Need a replacement fm antenna, can someone point me in the right direction?

Asked by: Grid
A piece of speaker wire split down the middle with about 1/4" bared wire at each end has always worked best for me. The "dipole" FM antenna that you find at the shack and other places is just a pre-constructed form of this idea. If it is a coax type input just use a coax adapter that has screw-heads to accommodate bare wire. I have found that simplest is best for FM reception.

Will this work with a 220-240V power source?

Asked by: jeevcat
Unfortunately this will only accept 110VAC. In order to use this with 220VAC you will need to use a step-up transformer like the one below:http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?Partnumber=120-810

Wii I have an issue if I run a pair of original Smaller Advent speakers 4 ohm speakers through this receiver?

Asked by: Cappy
This budget priced, light duty receiver is rated for 8 ohms minimum. A 4 ohm load will make this receiver heat up quickly. I am sure it would work for low volume levels, but as soon as you try to push it loud, the current draw of the 4 ohm load will cause overheating and shutdown.

Does This work with Graphic EQ? Also Balance L/R doesn't completely turn off?

I have one of these that I bought back in April. I've got it hooked up in my stack of audio gear and don't want to rip everything apart to see if it will work, so I just thought it would be easier to ask. Does it have a tape monitor in order to loop an EQ through the in/out's? I can't find any info on this in the instructions.Also, has anyone found that their receiver doesn't completely level out when adjusting L/R ?IE: If you turn the left balance completely off, let's say, It doesn't totally shut the left channel off. You can still hear output through the left side. Not very loud, but it still plays. Every other amp/receiver I've ever had turns completely off on the channel that's switched down.And yes the speaker leads are connected properly. Any input on these issues would be greatly appreciated. I know it's a long involved 2 part question, sorry.Thanks.Great little 2 channel stereo amp for the $$$ !I use it just for this purpose, music only.
Asked by: Jlux
It has a tape in/out, however - not a monitor function - do you can't insert an EQ. And you're right - for the money it's a great deal. With that price, however, there are some compromises - like bleed-through on the balance control.

@ MarkAJH, I'm thinking of putting the EQ between the source in & amp inputs?

with proper RCA Cables & adapters, minimal $$'s do you think I could play with the sound quality in this way? say running just your average DVR, DVD/CD Player or even TV Out?And do you think that over time, the "chanel bleeding" problem could get serious?Thanks for your time. J.
Asked by: Jlux
If you are set on using an EQ - you should have a receiver with a pre-out / amp in. This receiver is a great unit - but you're trying to get more out of it than it was designed for. You "could" put the EQ inline with a specific component - but you risk over-driving the input by adjusting the various gains on the EQ. And now, the channel bleeding over time won't become an issue.

Will this stereo receiver work with a powered subwoofer using an RCA cord

Asked by: Bigmikey800
Unfortunately not, this receiver does not have a sub-out channel. However if your subwoofer has high level inputs you can use those instead, that's how I use my sub and it sounds fantastic.
