Bottom Line:   
Having used some of Sherwood's other DD receivers in the past, I thought I'd check out the 7100 due to the value Sherwood offers. This one doesn't have the EX, DPL II or Neo 6 but it does however have a very natural Dolby Virtual mode, something that could benefit someone who does not have surround or center channel speakers. There are 2 ambience modes, Theater and Hall which are surprisingly good, much better than the boingy ones in the 7108, which I also own. The 7108 with the newer center back channel amp does have the ability to decode 3 rear channels, though (see other products used). In a plain Pro Logic setup the sound in the 7100 is very enveloping and natural, even with my rather inefficient PSB Mini's. Just for the fun of it, I substituted set of Wharfedale Diamond 7.2's and the receiver really made these modest speakers croon, and generates enough power for all channels in an average size room. This receiver is perfect for someone interested in a easy-to-operate unit and it has all one needs for a good sounding 5 channel home theater system.
