Sherwood Launches Their First HDMI 1.4 Receiver

The first Sherwood receiver with HDMI 1.4 capability, the 7Sherwood7505-0110.1 channel RD-7505 provides support for 3D and includes a built-in HDMI repeater for handling HDMI inputs with long cable runs. It includes Dolby TruHD and DTS-HD Master Audio processing as well as plain old Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic II and DTS 96/24.

The $349 RD-7505 is rated at 110 watts RMS for all seven channels, at less than 0.7 percent THD, achieved through 192 kHz/24 bit D to A converters and TI 32-bit DSP audio processing chips. However, it only has three HDMI inputs and a single output along with two component inputs and two composite inputs (already useless).  Sherwood offers an optional plug-in Sherwood Bluetooth adapter to allow the RD-7505 to receive streaming audio from Bluetooth enabled players (e.g., MP3 players and PCs).

Again, like most new CES products, it’s not on their site, but when it is, it will be here:  http://www.sherwoodamerica.com/site/sherwood/receiver/receiver.php?mtype=1
