Sherwood America Inc. announced recently its initial shipments of the R-904N NetBoxx Internet A/V receiver. This highly compact and distinctively styled 7.1 channel receiver is equally adept at the playback of both physical disc media and Internet/streaming media, without requiring a PC. With HDMI 1.3, Dolby Volume, Dolby TruHD and DTS-HD Master Audio high-resolution audio formats, and seven channels of 100-watt "Green" digital amplification, NetBoxx defines a new generation of audio/video receiver. With Internet content from CinemaNow, YouTube, various TV channels, SHOUTcast audio "Internet radio" stations, and the ability to stream personal media and content from Hulu, Netflix, CBS, CNN, ESPN, Rhapsody and Amazon Video On Demand through the home network from a connected PC or NAS device the NetBoxx brings today's most popular media to an A/V receiver. Suggested retail is $649.95 and available in September 2009.

"The inspiration for the NetBoxx concept came from our realization of the change taking place in the way people bring entertainment into their home. Use of physical media is declining and being replaced by content obtained through streaming or downloads," said Jeffrey Hipps, Sherwood's Sr. VP for Marketing and Product Development. "This led to our taking a fresh look at what an audio-video receiver should be, from its function to its form factor. By combining an ability to access content in cyberspace with superb performance and sound quality reflecting Sherwood's over-50 year standard of audio excellence, NetBoxx is an audio/video component that is truly 21st-century ready."
