All seven channels of amplification utilize a totally discrete amplifier stage delivering 100 watts per channel at 8 ohms with less than 0.2% THD. Superior audio quality is assured through the use of 24 bit/192 KHz D/A converters, and all PCM signals are upsampled to 24 bit/96KHz.

A supplied calibration microphone and automated set-up procedure make speaker and system optimization easy, including advanced room tuning and equalization through Sherwood's SNAP• (Sherwood Newcastle Automatic Parametric) 12-band room EQ. An additional 5-band user adjustable parametric EQ is provided for further tweaking. 
A wide range of speaker configurations and sizes can be accommodated through a Quadruple Crossover function that allows up to four different frequencies to be selected as the subwoofer crossover point for the seven main channels, allowing different settings for main speakers, center channel, and sets of surrounds.

Two component video inputs and a component video output are included, along with composite and S-Video inputs. Audio inputs include three coaxial digital, two Toslink, and eight analog. To compensate for source-related lip synch problems, each input has its own A/V Synch Delay.

For pure two-channel stereo listening, "Tone Direct" bypasses all signal processing and tone controls. A Cinema EQ setting is available, as well as eight DSP surround modes that include "Theater," "Hall, and "Stadium". A multi-stage Dynamic Range control is useful for nighttime listening and playback at low volume levels.

For remote listening in a second room, Multi-source, Dual-Zone operation is available, and the receiver is provided with a preprogrammed IR remote control. The 7503's Quartz PLL Synthesized AM/FM tuner has 30 presets and is Sirius ready.
