The Sherwood Newcastle R-903 is a 6.1 channel A/V receiver that features a compact design and is a part of Sherwoods TruDigital amp series. The TruDigital amps operate with over 90% effieciency, compared to other amps which usually dissipate half of their energy into heat. These amps also maintain a fully digital signal path from the amplifier input to the output stage for lossless audio reproduction.  The chasis is also only 10" deep letting it fit in smaller spaces than typical amps. It uses Dolby Pro Logic II surround sound and has decoders for Dolby Digital EX, DTS Neo-6 and DTS-ES Discrete and Matrix. There are 2 optical digital audio inputs and one coaxial digital audio input along with several RCA inputs and there are composite and s-video inputs and outputs. Other features include AM/FM radio with 30 station presets, tone controls, cinema EQ and a pink noise generator for surround sound balancing.
