    ***SOLD***

    Hey

    Guys It has came time to move my Sherwood on to someone who can enjoy it

    I want to make it first known that this is the best sounding Pre-Amp that I have ever heard, bar none, this seems to be the case for everyone that has heard it, the Movie performance is to die for from this unit

    Why am I selling then?? 100% because of the Silver color :angry: it is the only silver component in my rack and it is killing me, I want it to be known that I will prolly be replacing this with the outlaw 990

    the performance of the P-965 is amazing and I don't want to give it up, but the Silver laughing at me while I am enjoying my HT has finally got to me

    I used this P-965 for around 1 year with my ATI amps and Movie playback was so darn amazing that I was pleased everytime I turned this unit on, my Metal tunes were also great on this baby, amazing dynamics [​IMG]

    The unit is in 99% perfect cosmetic condition, everything is perfect except a small pin size nick in the front right under the display readout(this was like this when I got it) of course the unit is in 100% perfect working condition and has never came even close to offering so much as a buggy operation, 100% perfect since the day I opened it

    The jacks on the back are 100% perfect, nice and clean(I clean my component every month)

    The unit comes complete with the same layout as the day I opened it, owners manual, complete RX-500 remote, auto setup microphone and box, auto setup pre-amp and box, second room remote, beefy power cable and original Sherwood Box(which is massive)

    this unit HAS NOT been upgraded to the SNAP setup, BUT I will ship this unit to Sherwood instead of you and they can ship it out to you and you will save 40$ or so this way, so combined with my low price and the 100$ SNAP fee you will have a perfect condition Sherwood P-965 SNAP enabled unit for well under 1000$ shipped

    the unit is flawless and complete in every way

    ***SOLD***

    I would like to accept paypal for this item and would appreciate the buyer paying the 25$ fees, but I won' demand it in anyway

    If you need references I can Supply them, I have competed hundreds of sales on the AVS Forum and Home Theater Forum along with the HT Spot, I also have over 2000 positive feedback on Flea Bay

    if you need any help with this item or have any other question please let me know, I can also speak to you on the phone about it

    Yes I agree

    every review and buyer says it takes a 4,000$ pre-amp to beat this thing and they aren't kidding

    while it doesn't bother me, I still have people at that price above emailing me and lowballing for like under 700$ shipped, I paid 1400$ a year ago

    with the SNAP upgrade fee some lucky person could have a SNAP P-965 for 850$ instead of 1100$(cheapest price I could find)

    Thanks guys

    I sold it to a nice guy who is going from a receiver to a Pre-amp, I barely cleared 700$ but oh well, I think it is going to a good home

    I replaced it with the Boston AVP7 [​IMG] [​IMG]

    If I would have seen this last week (pre-sale) or anytime before that, it would have been gone. What a deal, bad timing I guess...
