New to home cinema and needsome help. I purchased a Sherwood RD6106R from Richer Sounds open box sale. When I eventualy set it up I found my subwoofer would not work when playing CD's thru my DVD player, but the sub did seemed to work when playing home cinema. I took the receiver back to RS but was told that they would not refund (as it was more than 2 weeks since purchase) but would accept it for repair under the 3 month warranty. The RS repair guy phoned today to say that there is nothing wrong with the 'sub out' on the receiver and that a sub will only work when connected to a Sherwood receiver if the front speakers are set to 'Small' ( I had them set to `Large' as per the speaker manufacturers instructions and the subwoofer set to 'yes'). Does anyone out their have experience of 'Sherwood' amps and if so can they advise:- 1) Is it true that I need to set the front speaker settings to 'Small' if using a sub? 2) Will setting the fronts to 'Small' adversley effect the sound quality. My speaker package is an 'Athena Point 5' as below link http://www.homecinemachoice.com/rev...rPackages/Athena/AthenaTechnologiesPoint5.php All help appreciated p.s. I realise Sherwood kit is not the best, but was just looking to get started in HC without spending mega bucks.
