Sherwood RX-5502 Multi-Room Stereo Receiver

Whole-house audio is now easier thanks to Sherwood. The RX-5502 is designed to provide complete stereo receiver control and amplification to two "zones" at the same time. You can now listen to your favorite albums, CDs, or DVDs—while the ballgame is on the radio in another room. Four dedicated speaker outputs ensure a straightforward connect-and-forget system that brings audio into four separate rooms. With the installation of IR repeater systems (not included), you don't even need to install local volume controls. Dual TDAS® Discrete Amp Stage amplifiers drive two pairs of stereo speakers (each in parallel) and ensure reliable sound quality that most whole house audio amplifiers fail to deliver. 400 watts of genuine power lets you crank the volume without running out of headroom. Four analog stereo inputs, one phono input, and one analog stereo output. Features and

Sherwood RX-5502 Multi-Room Stereo Receiver
Sherwood RX-5502 Multi-Room Stereo Receiver is rated 4.375 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good 2 zone receiver.Only 3 weeks into using the Sherwood, but so far its been a positive experience. Product arrived promptly, setup was a no brainer. As mentioned elsewhere the tone controls leave a bit to be desired, too broad-banded for my taste. The only thing I could call criticism would be the menu function. Its a bit too layered in places but once you get thru it its no big deal. Haven't really sat-on the volume control, but the amps seem to hold up well to moderate outdoor levels which takes more power in most settings. Hey for $160 you can't go wrong. I might buy another soon.......

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Basic Receiver/Amp...I bought a Sansui 771 back in 1975 when I was in the USAF in SEA. When it finally went jillflirty a few years ago, I looked for something similar...that is a good basic unit w/enough inputs for my Turntable, CD's, DVDs and games,plus enough speaker outputs and basic controls such as input select, balance, base & treble. About the only thing I could find w/power & specs was a Yamaha but it had way more "bells&whistles" than I really wanted. So when one side's output died I found this unit. It had specs like I wanted plus just the right amount of desired features. It arrived in just a few days and I had it up & running in short order. There is a phono input but I think there is an impedance mismatch w/my turntable. I hooked it to the AUX & it works fine. Overall I am very pleased w/the purchase, both product and service.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from RX-5502 stereo receiverUnit has good sound, no distortion, radio tuner works great, remote works well. Drives 2 channels, 4 boxes with 16 speakers rated at 100 watts or less, this unit has more power than my speakers can handle. Has 5 inputs, all work well. Down side, no power on light, takes a few seconds to warm up and work and keep unit clear of obstructions to air flow, unit does become warm. Over all I'm happy with this unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Serves its purpose perfectly, at a bargain!This unit has exactly the features I need for installing dual-zone whole-house stereo. Not home theater - stereo! My clients are so happy when I tell them the price. It has a sufficient number of inputs and the two zones are completely independent. It drives four pairs of speakers with ease and is plenty powerful.Did I mention what a bargain? Worth twice the price!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good functionality for the priceCompared to other receivers, it's not bad for the price, 4 channels w/ 2 independent zones......not bad for under $200. I'm over $300 for Onkyo and over $400 for Denon to get independent zone functions(these units do alot more though), but the simplicity of the zone fuctions and channel usage are great for people not lookin' to be overwhelmed by fuctions and sound dimensions, but simply just want some audio in different locations

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but ....Tone Controls have broad Bandwidth so that they truly don't pump up just the Lows or Highs you want. The Speaker Ohms required, to use all 4 Sets of Speakers, in the Instructions are very confusing considering that there are 2 Stereo Amps within the unit. It should handle 8 Ohms for all, not 16 Ohm minimums.

Hi looking to use this to run 4 rooms/zones of music in a home...would this work. I don't want to have to add an external speaker switch.

Asked by: Guernelli
This is designed to power two rooms/two pairs of speakers at the same time. In order to have four zones you will either have to find a 4 zone amplifier (our Dayton MA1240 would work) or use a speaker switch.

can i hook up my i-pod to this unit

Asked by: kandler
This does not have a dedicated iPod input although you can use a 3.5mm to dual RCA cable and plug the headphone output of the iPod into one of the inputs on the back of the receiver.
