Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sherwood RX-4109 Stereo ReceiverSound quality is ok but wish it had more features for my home audio entertainment system. Very simple to connect to existing devices. It lacks surround sound and bluetooth. Limited inputs/outputs. My previous system was a horrible receiver but it had better sound and many bells and whistles that this lacks for half the price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Value for the MoneyI bought this receiver to use as a spare AM/FM Stereo Tuner and also for using it as an integrated amplifier. The manufacturer Specifications state “…AM and FM stereo with 4-gang FM front end…” This is both inaccurate and very misleading. I expected that the 4109 would have something like a conventional analog tuner with a 4 gang tuning capacitor. What it does have is an AM/FM modular tuner in a very small shielded enclosure measuring what I estimate to be about 3 in long by 1 5/8 in W by 5/8 in H. The entire AM/FM radio is based on a single AM/FM Stereo Tuner IC which performs all of the front end AM and FM RF functions and even does the mpx stereo decoding of the stereo sub-band. It accomplishes all tuning using a few varactor diodes (variable capacitance). In other words, it is electronically tuned. It has no mechanical tuning and definitely doesn’t have the 4 gang FM front end as Sherwood claims.This was a large disappointment to me and while the AM and FM tuner performance is acceptable, it is not up to the performance of more expensive receivers or tuners. The tuner performance is more like what you would get from a mid-priced clock radio.Aside from my disappointment with the tuner, I will say that the 4109 is very well built for this price point. After I get more time with the 4109 I’ll post another review on its audio performance and other features and functionality.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from DisappointedUpon setup, the FM didnt function. Traced problem to antenna input socket. Removed cover, found intermittent contact with signal wire board - resoldered it.I dont like the sound. Its without depth in spite of my adding base. I tried 3 sources; FM/AM, CD output from my computer audio board, interface with my digital TV audio out, and interface with a Teac analog cassette deck. Played it through 2 Polk 3-way Monitors and the headset. Listened to some Jazz and some of Bartok's Concerto for Orchestra. I was not pleased from any source.I listen at low gain - not much more than 8-10 watts. I need all the information at that level. But there's not too much below about 40% gain - too loud. I didnt expect much for the price. After all, a stereo amplifier is a very simple electronic network. But the overall sound is un-natural at low listening levels, nothing in the middle. little on the bottom. I guess its OK pedal to the metal - I didnt try it there.I gave it to my Grandson. I'll likely never buy another.Went back to my old Fischer 25 watt - just gorgeous !!

What I need here is the remote control. What can be done here or where can I bought another one?

Asked by: rey59pr
Unfortunately we do not have remotes for these separately. You will have to contact Sherwood directly for a possible replacement.

My receiver no longer "remembers" the presets after turning off the power. My power supply is photovoltaic, so the unit is 100% off when the power strip is off. Is there an internal battery that may be either worn out, or not getting enough charging?

Asked by: Farfar
There may be such a battery, I would recommend contacting Sherwood directly for a little better help with this. If you can get a model number for the battery we may have one that will replace it.
