Given that the Sherwood is a basic stereo/Dolby Pro Logic receiver, and that we have had sources where digital audio (coax and optical) are the standard for Dolby Digital and DTS for well over 15 years, and that HDMI is established now as the de facto standard for AV connections on many home AV products.... perhaps it's time to retire the Sherwood and look for something new.
Entry level price points for new, fully spec'd, AV receivers capable of dealing with HD audio, DD, DTS, Dolby ProLogiic- and ProLogic II have never been cheaper.
Sherwood is still a good brand. It has been joined by Yamaha (
RX-V377BL); Sony (STRDH750); Denon (AVR-S500BT) and Pioneer (VSX-524-K) at the entry-level price point of $249. In real terms these are probably a fraction of what you paid for the Sherwood all those years ago.
Another option is used equipment. There are some really good pre-HDMI AV receivers from Denon, Yahama and Pioneer available in the used market.
if your turntable has an integrated amplifier you connect it directly to any regular input like DVD or CD. If this is a classic turntable you need to buy external phono amplifier. It is a small box with phono inputs and rca regular outputs you plug your turntable trough this box to cd or dvd input of the receiver. Can be tube or transistor amplifier. price vary from 20 to hundreds dollars.
Just send an E-Mail to Yamaha's customer service section. I'm certain they will be able to tell you. The only other problem you might encounter is if the USA model uses a different mains system to the one in Brazil.
Sight unseen, any powered subwoofer can be hooked to any older gear. Just run a pair from an unused Tape Output to the Sub (you might have to get a Y-cable to make it a mono input). You might not be able to match levels, though, so you sub amp should have some kind of volume control.
Once a channel goes out on any av reciever, its done. Unfortunately thats just the way it is. I have been in the business of installing, troubleshooting, and replacing these units for years and your best bet is buy a new one. To have any electronic device repaired these days is not worth the cost and you can usually purchase a new and improved component for close to the same price.
