Sherwood 7225B Receiver

Sherwood S-7225B Receiver (~1974)

Very little information is available about this Sherwood receiver.  Visually, quite similar to the Sherwood S-7100 receiver, however the S-7225B adds support for a quad adaptor.  On a less positive note, it drops the real wood veneer of the S-7100 and wood side panels for wood simulated vinyl covering.  The solid aluminum machined knobs do stay though.

Approx 20-25 watts per channel.


Weight: Approx. 8.5kg

Measurements: 44 x 14,5 x 32,5cm

Color: Silver / Wood
