can I connect my ipod to this receiver
By Customer Service - Q&A on October 3, 2011
Answer:Yes - use the stereo to RCA cable.
By Customer Service - Q&A on October 7, 2011
Answer:Yes it can...
You will need a 3.5mm stereo to 2 RCA adapter cable available from OSD in 1 to 12 foot lengths.
You will connect the 3.5mm to the headphone output of the the iPod, typically located at the top of the iPod. Then plug the two RCA's into the Aux input of the Sherwood Receiver. The RCA's are labeled red and white. Use the red for right and white for left on the input to the receiver.
Note: you can also connect you lap top or computer the same way.

Does this have a sub output? Do you need an additional amp for that?
By Customer Service - Q&A on January 20, 2013
A number of our powered subwoofers accept speaker level input. On this receiver, the speaker A and B are in one zone and Speaker C and D are in another. In this case, determine which speaker you want to add a subwoofer to, either A or C. If you select A then connect the subwoofer to Speaker B output or if you want to utilize a sub with Speaker C then connect to Speaker D. You can also connect the subwoofer directly to Speaker A as an example then connect right and left channel speakers to the speaker level outputs of the subwoofer. If you give us more information on your system, we can be of more assistance.

Hi, can I use your Ace600 ceiling speakers with this? I plan connecting an airport express to this so I can play music wirelessly from iPad, assume this is ok? Do I need to have a subwoofer/ Amp with this or am I ready to go with ceiling speakers and Rx 5502. Thank you
By Customer Service - Q&A on September 26, 2012
The RX5502 has an RCA connection and it looks like the airport express uses a 1/8 (mini). You can use our RCA to Mini cable to connect them. Here is a link to the 6ft unit, but we do offer different sizes:
The RX5502 will power the speakers, and although you don't need a subwoofer, adding one will go a long way toward improving the listening experience, especially at low frequencies. Our super budget friendly P8 sub may be a perfect fit.

Is there an audio out channel on this receiver that I can send to a second amplifier? I want to power 4 speaker pairs with this Sherwood receiver and 2 more speaker pairs with another amp.
By Customer Service - Q&A on January 3, 2012
The only audio output is on the tape loop, probably not what you are looking for in your setup (this limits your choice of sources). This receiver features an independent second zone designation (A&B for Zone 1 and C&D for Zone 2). It is not recommended to run multiple speakers off the individual outputs, so you are limited to the four pair of speakers.
The only affordable option that might work would be to use an OSD DSM6 dual source speaker selector and connect Speaker A to Source 1 and Speaker C to Source 2. That way you can connect all six speakers to the speaker selector and still have the dual source choice for each zone (switchable at the speaker selector). You would not use speaker B or D output from the receiver.

Can anyone recommend some passive subwoofers that are compatible with this receiver?
By Customer Service - Q&A on May 5, 2012
We need more information to answer that question. What type of speakers, how many zones and why are you thinking passive sub-woofers. We offer powered sub-woofers that can take speaker level inputs and be combined with the satellite speakers you want to be utilized up to two zones with this Receiver. So please let us know exactly what is your application.

Can I connect 2 pair of 8 ohm speakers to this receiver and run all 4 speakers at one time? In addition, would I use impedance matching vol controls for each pair?
By Customer Service - Q&A on January 17, 2012
If you are running two pairs, I would connect one pair to 'A' and the second to 'C'. This receiver allows you to run up to 4 pairs, sectioning A+B to Zone One and C+D to Zone Two. You have the ability to play both zones using one source, or either zone with a seperate source.
By Ev from Richmond, VA on October 31, 2011
Aside from the 4 speakers, can this receiver support a subwoofer/bass?
By Customer Service - Q&A on October 31, 2011
Answer:No - it doesn't have the subwoofer preamp output like home theatre receiver.
By Customer Service - Q&A on November 1, 2011
Answer:Yes, you can connect one of our Powered Sub Woofers, which allows you to connect to the Speaker level output. This allows you to add a subwoofer to both zones—Zone 1: Speaker A for the stereo pair and Speaker B for the Subwoofer, Zone 2: Speaker C output for the stereo pair, and Speaker Output D for the second Powered sub. Combine the two. Check out our S-10, which combines the connection flexibility, plenty of power at a great factory direct price. You can even buy two, one for each zone
By Mark from Overland Park, KS on November 16, 2012
The unit description states independent speaker selection for up to four pairs, but there are only two zones. Zone 1 is speaker pairs A & B; Zone 2 is speaker pairs C & D. So is there a way to only play speakers A or speakers D for example? Or when playing A, will B always also be on?
By Customer Service - Q&A on November 19, 2012
You are able to cycle through the 4 zones individually. Page 9 and 19 of the Owner’s Manual goes into how to toggle between the zones. Here is a link /lib/yhst-5323690727015/rx-5502-manual.pdf
