Now that Axiom has entered into a deal to sell Sherwood Newcastle products on their website, how many of you will consider taking advantage of this partnership? My understanding is that the website is currently being worked and will soon have all the Sherwood Newcastle info on it we need.

I’m in the market for a new receiver, and the new Sherwood Newcastle R-972 and R-982 models have me interested. I’ll be ordering an Epic 60/500 system in just a few weeks and was planning to buy a new receiver then, but after seeing what these new HDMI 1.3 receivers offer in terms of features and price, I’ve decided to wait until the fall to replace my 7 year old Yamaha RX-V595 receiver. Now when I place my order for the Epic speaker system, I’ll get a 5.1 set-up and wait until October/November to buy either the R-972 or R-982 and one or two rear centers to finally complete my home theatre sound system. For me, this is a great opportunity since I can do both at once and from the same company.

I will be interested in Axiom's pricing, as their cables and such are really nice, but way too expensive.

Absolutely, in fact I just did and the Sherwood newcastle R-771 is in my living room ready to be hooked up, alas, my basement won't be ready for another month. The price for the R-771 is about $750 CDN, less a 5% discount if you buy 5 items. I am told they are an excellemt match for my system (see sig). I will let you all know in mid to late Feb

I was just thinking the R-771 has everything I need. I'm still running a no DPLII AV receiver, so I'm light-years behind.

Depending on the price, I may consider buying from Axiom.

You and me both. My receiver doesn't even have component inputs. Just s-video and composite. I've decided to wait so I can have the most current generation of receiver on the market. Although I've really enjoyed my Yamaha, a good friend of mine has always sworn by Sherwood Newcastle. He has exceptional hearing and the ablility to pick out the smallest imperfection in audio, so I trust his judgement. Also, the good people at Axiom have suggested I go with one of their receivers, and I gotta respect a speaker company who backs certain receivers to get the best out of their product.

???

Where the heck did you find them online on the website? Or are they selling through the phone?

I think he answered the question as "Will you buy Sherwood Newcastle?" I don't believe it was purchased from Axiom.

Yes, I looked at their website here after speaking with Axiom on the phone, and then I just called/emailed Axiom once I made my decision and got all my speakers and receiver through them. Very easy

to be clear, I bought the Sherwood Newcastle R-771 receiver through Axiom.
