Features & Specifications

It is an industry secret that Sherwood is the actual manufacturer of nearly one-third of the world's high performance receivers. Many of the products we build are available with brand names which may be better known than our own. But none are built with the same sense of pride as those that bear our own name, nor are any better built or better engineered than those that bear our Sherwood badge.

In our modern, surround sound driven audio universe where home theater enthusiasts hear airplanes flying overhead and bombs exploding around them, one might think that a mere Stereo is old fashioned. But don't be mislead — humans have only two ears and stereo is still a significant life form.

Our case in point: the new RX-4105. It's actually an update of our market leading RX-4100/4103. rated at 100 watts, we've reduced distortion significantly. It's now less than 0.20% from 20 Hz to 20 kHz and we've improved the reliability with a new layout borrowed from our higher end models. The RX-4103 has a good AM/FM tuner with the ability to pre-set up to 30 favorite stations. It has inputs for 4 audio sources to accommodate your sound gear. And the sound is phenomenal — as you'd expect from a company that dates its own existence to before stereo's birth.
And the RX-4103 has at least one unexpected grace: the ability to independently select up to two sets of loudspeakers via the supplied remote control. (Audio purists will be pleased to know that this relay-controlled switching puts the speakers in parallel, maintaining their individual.

November 10, 2014
Can I hook up an Ipod or my Android Phone to the input jacks for this unit? I'd like to use it to stream Pandora. Also, I would like to install it in an exterior shop that does not have heating or cooling. Not outside, but will be subject to temp swings from 20s to over 110 in the summer. Would this unit work for me?

Hi, i just got this receiver works fine with a pair of iw810 but is it possible to connect a sub woofer to this receiver? Thanks.
1 Answers
Hi Samson, It doesn't have a dedicated subwoofer output, but there's a possibility you can run a powered sub from one of the RCA (red/white) outputs. The owner's manual doesn't specifically mention a subwoofer though, so it would be recommended to contact Sherwood to verify whether you can or can't. -BM 2377

Is this receiver designed to be outdoors? It will be in a weather proof cabinet but it will experience high humidity and temperatures.
1 Answers
Hi Rod, This unit is not sealed for humidity so that would be the main problem. We have an MA2 outdoor amp but it is rated at 25 watts per channel and intended for only a small pair of speakers. CL/MA 1266

Would this be a good receiver for a pair of outdoor speakers?
1 Answers
Hi Randy: This Receiver will have no problem powering a pair of speakers. It will also allow you to connect your iPod or computer library or even connect to the internet through a lap top as potential sources. But will a pair of speakers be enough, what about sound quality and expandability. Checkout our AMP200 for maximum flexibility and future proofing. It is a true audiophile quality amp with plenty of power and features automatic source switching. TL

from Seattle asked:

What is the size of this receiver? I am looking for a compact amp like the AMP60 but with remote, and this Sherwood receiver was recommended by you. Thanks, Gordon
1 Answers
Hi Gordon: This is a standard size receiver (with a remote)... 17 3/8" W x 5 7/16" H x 13" D, compare that to... AMP60: 8 1/2" L x 6 3/16"W x 2 /5/8"H. I not sure the AMP60 would be enough power for your two pairs of speakers to begin with... It is really meant to play a single pair of 8 ohm speakers at one time. The bigger amps including the AMP120 and AMP200 do not have a remote control either (and both of these are full component size 17" wide). TL

Fred
from Sugar Land, TX asked:
January 18, 2012
Can this receiver play two sets of 8 ohm speakers at the same time? I understand that the speaker sets in this receiver are in parallel. If this is so, the 4 speakers would draw 2 ohms when all playing at the same time. This is an 8 ohm receiver.
2 Answers
Fred, You can play up to 2 pairs with this receiver. The speaker sets are not in parallel. You would do home runs- leaving it stable at 8ohms- Each pair has its own designated channel. CL
Customer Service - Q&A
on January 18, 2012
Hi Fred: A pair of 8 ohm speakers features an 8 ohm load to the amplifier. Adding a second pair of 8 ohm speakers creates a 4 ohm load. The Receiver is rated at 8 ohm but will play 4 ohm as long as it is not at full volume over an extended period. When the Receiver is loaded down to 4 ohm the current demand is doubled thus creating more than double the heat. These low cost receivers do not have enough internal heatsink to handle the increase in the heat. Once the Audio output devices reach a certain temperature they shut down until the temperature drops back down to a safe operating level

Gary
from Maryland asked:
December 30, 2011
Can I use this receiver with a speaker selector? So I would be sending, for example, only the left side of one channel out to the input of a 6-zone speaker selector. Then connecting only one speaker to each left-side on each zone on the speaker selector? Im looking for multiroom audio however in my application I am not using a pair (left/right) of speakers per room, rahter I am using only one speaker in each room.
1 Answers
Hi Gary, This Sherwood receiver does not do bridged mono setup. I am assuming you have the speakers already and we are talking about 12 different speakers in 12 different rooms or areas. The ideal amp for this setup would be our OSD AMP200 which would allow you to output a mono signal from Speaker A to the left input on the Speaker Selector and a mono output from Speaker B output to the right input on your speaker selector. The amp allows you to connect two sources for your system with automatic priority switching. You could use your computer as one source connecting the headphone output to the input number one on the AMP200. That way you would have access to all the internet has to offer for streaming content or choose your iTunes or Windows media libraries as the source. You could then pick a DVD player (which will play CDs) or an iPod for source number 2. For your speakers, you would want to group the speakers together so that the right and left speaker can be turned off or on at the speaker selector. I think the OSD AMP200 would be ideal for the application you described. If you have not picked all your speakers, we feature a number of Dual Voice Coiled summed mono stereo speakers that are ideal for your application as well. Check out the OSD-ICE640TT (in-ceiling), OSD-RS850TT (rock) or the OSD AP550TT (patio) as examples. TL/MA

terry
from matthews nc asked:
December 19, 2011
is this receiver good fpr a simple 4 speaker set up? can I wire all 4 speakers up seperately?
1 Answers
Hi Terry, This receiver is set up to power two pair of 8-Ohm speakers (four total speakers). It features both an A and B speaker button on the front panel. Unless you use 16-ohm speakers, we do not recommend using both pairs of speakers at the same time. We supply lots of speakers here at OSD but no 16-ohm pairs. A better choice would be to step up to the Sherwood RX-5502 that features 4-pair speaker output (A, B, C & D) connections plus dual source capability. You could then connect four speakers separately using our ICE640TT dual voice coil summed mono speaker. TL/MA

I live in France and we only use 220-230 volts items. My older amp and other items you could switch over to the US and or EURO volts. I need an amp for my use here. Can you help? THANKS Carl
1 Answers
This unit features a multi-voltage switch. You just need to make sure it is set to 230 before you connect to the wall using the recommended adaptor plug for France.. The WA-9 universal grounded wall outlet plug adapter is equipped with the patented universal receptacle design on the female end to accept plug-pin configurations from more than 50 countries. It is designed for use in one or more specific countries that share the same outlet standard. Therefore, the WA-9 plug adapter is equipped with a country-specific plug-pin configuration at the male end for working with a specific country's wall outlet standard. WA-9 Plug Adapter Features: CE certified. •10 Amps capacity •250 Volts capacity •Designed for recessed outlets TL/MA

Great Buy!
A great buy for the price. This was a replacement for an old Pioneer receiver and separate amp 200w output. This unit rocks as clear and loud as the old one. Has the A & B speaker channels, which was a must in my set up. And it's all remote controlled

Outdoor solution? Time will tell.
Looking for your most basic stereo receiver... this is it. And, in some applications, that's all you need. I'm using outdoors (in a watertight cabinet) to replace an old Onkyo 5.1 unit. I'm hoping this scaled down version will be more durable vs. humidity. Although, I may add a small PC fan to better ventilate the product and prevent moisture condensation on the board.
ProsBasic, simple.
ConsNo digital inputs.

I was hesitant to go back to another low priced amplifier (I was burned trying the brand Pyle from another source - I now know where they got the name inspiration). I have had tremendous luck with OSD before and found this Sherwood. Beautiful hush-clear sound with a warm sound. Handles details exceptionally well. A tremendous value!
ProsVERY low THD, Crystal clear sound even at lowest volumes. Heavy transformer, quality build Remote, Great looking Exceptional price, Value
ConsThere is no downside to this amplifier!
