Sherwood RD-606i Network and RD-6506 Audio-Video Receivers with HDMI 1.4a
HDMI 1.4a capability at a new lower price point
January 10, 2011 by EH Staff

These 5.1 channel audio-video receivers bring HDMI 1.4a capability to a new, lower price point, enabling 3D video and higher sound quality through Audio Return Channel’s ability to receive high-resolution audio from Blu-ray disc. The products share identical performance specifications and most features, with the step-up RD-606i adding networking capability and Internet Radio access.

Featuring three HDMI 1.4a inputs and a single output, with repeater and Audio Return Channel, both receivers deliver 100 watts/channel to each of five channels. DTS HD-Master and Dolby True HD high-resolution lossless audio decoding is provided for Blu-ray disc playback, as well as DTS, DTS High Resolution, DTS 96/24, and Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby Pro Logic II. Five additional synthesized surround modes are available for playback of non-DTS and Dolby sources, and audio quality is maximized through 192 KHz/24 bit DACs for all five channels.

  • RD-6065 and RD-606i 5.1 audio-video receivers have HDMI 1.4 capability with Audio Return Channel and lossless Dolby and DTS Blu-ray audio
  • RD-606i Network receiver streams audio from Internet and networked devices, with UPnP, DLNA 1.5 certification and Windows 7 ‘Plays To’ capability
  • Products to be shown at CES Booth 14243 in Las Vegas

Scheduled for April shipment, the RD-606i Network receiver is 3D ready with HDMI 1.4 and Audio Return Channel, at an MSRP of $349.95, and the RD-6506 receiver, which shares the same features without networking, has an MSRP of $249.95.
