Hi All,
New to the Saloon. I quess my concern over the lack of phono input will not prevent me from throwing down for the 997. My ancient Onkyo 777 is a solid workhorse but it's time to upgrade the tech toys. I am sure this has been discussed already, but will I be able to run analog 5.1 from the OPPO BDP-85 for SACD and HDMI for everything else or...keep the OPPO 970 for analog SACD.

Well, first if you have the BDP-83 I wouldn't see any reason to hang on to the 970HD. Second, the BDP-83 can output SACD via HDMI just as well as it can output DVD-Audio, Dolby Digital, DTS, stereo and multichannel PCM, Dolby Digital Plus, TrueHD, DTS-HD High Resolution, and DTS-HD Master Audio. You will be able to connect the BDP-83 to the 997 via a single HDMI cable and use that for everything the player will play.

Scott, do you need any more beta testers for this? Also how do I get on the pre-order list?

Scott,

Looking around the web some dealers, examples www.projectorbundles.com and www.absoluteaudiovideo.com, are claiming that they have the Sherwood Newcastle R-972 in stock.
Do you know if the product was finally released by Sherwood? If not, do you have any updates on when this will be likely?

Like others, I am patiently waiting for the 997 smile

Many thanks

Pete

I have read through all the posts on the 997 have have not found the answer to my question yet...

Is there any chance of a set of Balanced inputs on the 997?

I've seen no mention of a balanced stereo input and the R-972 does not have one. It's just a guess, but I'd expect them to have mentioned that if they were adding it.
