The R-965 was the basis for the Model 990. The R-972 is the basis for the Model 997, and based on some ongoing discussion at AVS it's still hard to say how "launched" the 972 actually is at this point. Between that uncertainty and Outlaw's statement that they'd launch when it was ready (not at the earliest opportunity allowed by their agreement with Inkel), it's still hard to say how close we are to a Model 997 launch. It should be close now, but the R-972's "launch" has been very hard to pin down.

Some people have bought them, but Sherwood sells primarily through dealers and reports are that they have been slow to reach the dealers for sale. They were working on some firmware updates late in the fall and it appeared that they were letting just a trickle of units reach dealers until that firmware work was done.

Well, a positive review. Sure sounds like Trinnov is the real deal. It's probably going to be a tossup for some whether having Trinnov will be enough of a plus to override some of the features it lacks..like Dolby Volume (which is one thing I wanted) and lack of network support (which is a big ifeature for some). It does appear there were some issues with the review sample when switching sources. I don't think I'm going to be one of the first to jump on the bandwagon and get a 997, but there should be some cautious optimism that it will be released 'soon'!

From someone who has never had anything even like Audyssey, I can understand what Trinnov is claiming to be able to do for a full 5.1 or 7.1 system with a 5.1 or 7.1 program. But does Trinnov have any effect (positive or otherwise) on a normal stereo program? Does it have to run all speakers to work? Can it do room compensation say if you just play a CD with only your front L&R and sub running? It might be nice to be able to flatten bass response in 2.1.

This last post from wolverine is important and gets to a key issue. I don't have Audyssey. Still using and happy with 990. So perhaps PeterT or Scott can shed some light on that issue. Thanks.

2nd , I'd like to know this as well as I keep checking here frequently to buy a 997 one day smile

FilmMixer, a professional audio engineer in the film industry who posts over at AVS, posted this earlier today about the Sherwood receiver:

Quote:
I have one in my system right now.

I'm a little rushed at the moment (got a last minute invitation to a little music awards show that's being held tonight) but will say the receiver without Trinnov is one of the best I've ever had in my system (in fact, only on par with the Pioneer SC-09...)

With Trinnnov, it's taken to another level... it really sounds amazing, and the amp section is dead quiet, and powerful.. don't let the 100W rating fool you... it sounds authoritative and offers up plenty of slam.


This bodes very well for the 997 IMO. I have a lot of respect for FilmMixer's expertise (and his ears.)
