I am currently building a home theater in my home and I have been taking bids from two different audio companies to do the work. Each company are vendors for different equipment. One is proposing to use a Sherwood Newcastle a/v receiver -- the R-865 w/ NHT speakers. The other one is propsoing to us the Integra DTR-8.4 with Phase Technology speakers. Does anyone have any opions on the quality of Sherwood vs. Integra; or Phase Tech vs. NHT? Thanks.
