I am in the market for a cheap sound upgrade, and noticed that Sherwood has a couple of full-on 6.1 receivers with both DD EX and DTS ES for both $199 and $249. I know they have limited (if any) video switching capabilities....none on the $199 model, in fact, but I wondered if there was any other catch to these seemingly good buys. I read a review for the $199 model in Sound and Vision, and they gave it surprisingly high marks, despite the fact it didn't have posts to connect the speakers (just the old fashioned inputs) and the fact that no video switching was available. Anybody have any experience with the RD-7108 or the RD-8108? If I sound like a noob, that's because I am. My current HT is a Sony HTIB, I've never even owned an actual receiver before.
