Does anyone happen to know much about Newcastle equipment. I know they are basically Sherwood, but beyond that, I don't know much about them. I do know that Sherwood is generally lower priced stuff with decent features and performance. As far as I know, they don't rate as high as Denon or HK, but might be a little better than the entry Sony lines.
Anyway, here are their current offerings for separates: Sherwood/Newcastle
They have a few Newcastle brand receivers as well that look a little better than the Sherwood offerings,but I don't know much about performance.
What do they compare to? I'm thinking they are about the same class as Outlaw, Atlantic Technology, and Sherbourn, but I really don't know.
